Kanye West continues to feel misunderstood.
Once again using any platform he can to jabber on about something, the 39-year-old self-proclaimed "creative genius" sat down with W magazine for a lengthy interview about his frustrations with his place in the fashion world.
Note, the interview released today was conducted back in June — way before Yeezy Season 4 totally flopped at New York Fashion Week!
To help explain his very… interesting thoughts, 'Ye used various movie references to further prove why he thinks everyone is out to get him.
To be clear, Kim Kardashian West's husband thinks he's Vanellope from Wreck It Ralph, Will Ferrell's character from Elf, Will Smith in The Pursuit of Happyness, and Gru from Despicable Me – all wrapped into one! Now that's a thought!
It's a wonder why 'Ye doesn't have an animated film of his own hitting theaters TBH!

Anyway, for the sake of clarity, we're going to give you the Fade singer's comparisons and let you make your own conclusions as to what the f*ck he's actually talking about…
Wreck It Ralph:
"You know when Penelope [Vanellope] puts together her car? And she's like, 'Made it myself,' and everybody that has professional cars, they say, 'Look at you with your little car and you're going to do this,' and then they break her car, right? That's basically the fashion world to me. You know, I would basically take every dime I had and I would get overcharged by employees. I would get always looked at like I didn't really have a clue about what I was doing and what I wanted to say, and when I would bring my little car toRenzo Rosso or [LVMH chairman] Bernard Arnault or [Kering chief executive François-Henri] Pinault or these guys that have the keys to the actual Lewis Hamilton-level cars – if we're going to use the parallel of being a race car driver right now – they say, 'Well, what about this thing you said in the press or what about this or look at you.' Basically it would be like that moment in Wreck-It Ralph, to the point where this year I literally tweeted after doing a fashion show, 'Hey, I'm $53 million in debt and people say, 'I can't understand that. That sounds like MC Hammer where we don't relate to that.' It's not for you to relate to that…the people who know what the f*ck I'm talking about know what the f*ck I'm talking about. So I refuse people who write me off as some rich kid taking a hobby, fashion as a fucking hobby or a fashion plate. How could you even dare to think that, that you're on the same level of this, blah, blah, blah? And the entire time, no one, um – very few people even knew that I have a f*cking Ph.D. in art, you know? And not that that would even make the difference, but me saying that makes the difference to the exact people I'm talking to it's, like, shut the f*ck up. I will f*cking laser you with alien f*cking eyes and explode your f*cking head. Shut the f*ck up – try to write a rap. Okay then. I made this fucking T-shirt, now shut up. And it cost me everything I had and I gave everything I had."
The Pursuit of Happyness:
"You know when he was trying to sell the bone density machines? That was like me meeting with the head of [the fashion manufacturing and licensing company] Staff International and I'm like showing him things that I think can, could be considered to be a breakthrough thing, 'Like, look at these, you know?'"
"And his relationship with his mom? 'Hey mom, I built this rocket ship.' Whatever. That's how it is. I'm talking to a guy who's the head of a production facility [Staff International] but a really good one because they do [Maison] Margiela and all that and I'm like, 'Look, I built this rocket ship.' You know, it's like I built this amount of followers, we did this certain color palette, we did this, blah, blah, blah. That I designed this, you know, the cool summer shoe with [Giuseppe] Zanotti, and it's this top-selling shoe. Or I did this shoe with Nike and it was their top-selling shoe and these guys will just look and be like, 'No,' but they didn't realize, like Penelope, she's like, 'I won a race just like you guys.'"
"I'm the elf that's Will Ferrell, that's too big for his hands to make the toys. But he wants to make the toys. Why? Not just so he could play with them, but he wants to bring joy to the world. I am a creator and it's my responsibility. There is no amount of money, like as I tell my managers right now, 'What is your opinion of success?' So many people look at success is just like having money. True, not having money can be a sign of a lack of success and also can deter you from being successful at other things that you do, but if you take guys like LVMH and like Kering, they might only have two or three businesses that are actually profitable and they all work together, but they are successful at taking brands that mean something to people. And that's what I do as Kanye West, 39-year-old Kanye West talking to you right now. Play this shit back in 10 years – I build things that mean things to people. I make the Christmas presents; number one requested Christmas present of 2015 Christmas, going into 2016, the f*cking Yeezy."
Takes a lot to make us speechless!!! Also, what an eclectic taste in movies!
