Kanye West Thinks He’s 50 Percent More Influential Than Picasso, And Other Bits Of Delusion From His SNL Tantrum
Kanye West threw a Kanye West-like fit right before his performance on Saturday Night Live last week, because the set wasn’t right. The crew had to rip out the floor, because it was too shiny and was causing weird effects on the video wall. Kanye wasn’t having it and almost walked off before Lorne Michaels talked him away from the edge and got him to perform. Well, Page Six somehow magically got a hold of the audio of Kanye bringing his Twitter rants to life by spitting out all sorts of crazy declarations of how he’s the most important thing to happen to this planet since oxygen.
Page Six said that Kanye cursed out SNL production staff, but TMZ was right on time, and heard from a source (Fun fact: “TMZ’s source” is Latin for Pimp Mama Kris) that he didn’t throw the fuck word at producers. He was venting backstage in front of his people and the producers weren’t around.
Here’s a few of the nuggets that Kanye’s mouth delivered, and yes, it’s gotten to the point where he’s coming for dead people and the apostles:
“That and Taylor Swift, fake ass.”
“Bro! By 50 Percent, Stanley Kubrick, Apostle Paul…Picasso… fucking Picasso and Escobar. By 50 percent more influential than any other human being.”
“Don’t fuck with me! By 50 percent, dead or alive. By 50 percent for the next thousand years. Stanley Kubrick, ye!”
“Fake ass.” I’m not saying he’s wrong, but that’s coming from the dude who married into a family of fake asses (and I mean that in more ways than one).
You know, if I didn’t know who spouted out that nonsensicalness, I’d probably think it was Donald Trump on coke.
UPDATE: Maybe Kanye knew that audio was coming, because he did have a moment of self-awareness today:
My number one enemy has been my ego… there is only one throne and that’s God's …

I know I’m a thirsty bitch, but that tweet has got me thinking that I’m so dehydrated that I’m not seeing things right. That tweet must be a mirage.
