Kanye West

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!

This all must have been a long time coming…

Johnny Manziel is currently making headlines for refusing to enter rehab, but it sounds like his downfall has been in the works for a while.

That's because it was just revealed on Wednesday that Nike dropped the 23-year-old quarterback sometime after the 2015 NFL season, despite only just partnering with him in 2014!

Nike spokesman Brian Strong confirmed they fired the athlete way back on March 11 of last year, almost immediately after he finished rehab the first time.

As you may recall, Johnny's manager Drew Rosenhaus also dropped the former Cleveland Browns QB on Tuesday, and now we understand why — he wasn't making any money!

All of this combined with his pending domestic abuse case must be taking its toll on Johnny Football…

Get well soon, Johnny.
