Oh my goodness, people, Kanye West. Sometimes he shows up smiling ear to ear in a photo with North West, and we think, Aww, fatherhood has changed him. And then he does this kind of thing and we remember, Nope, hasn't changed at all. Kanye had a deposition in the lawsuit accusing him of beating up a photographer ('memba those days?), and man oh man, Yeezy is in rare form!
First, Kanye informs the photographer's lawyer that he is the "smartest celebrity you will ever meet" -- which is a little like an ant saying he is the biggest ant you will ever see. It's like, yeah, but you're still an ant. TMZ reports that Kanye bragged:
I'm the smartest celebrity you've ever f**king dealt with. I'm not Britney Spears.
Hm, so what makes Kanye so much more brilliant than Britney? She has made more money than him and seems to be able to stay out of trouble, at least lately.
Then he actually compared the plight of celebrities stalked by paparazzi to slaves, saying:
I mean in the '60s people used to hold up 'Die N****r' signs when my parents were in the sit-ins also.
Asked if he thinks celebrity rights are the same as civil rights, he said:
I equate it to discrimination. I equate it to inequalities.
HUH?!! Kanye, celebrities CHOOSE to be celebrities. In fact, they work very hard to get to the point where people want to take their picture. And considering he married a woman who LIVES in front of the cameras -- oh, whatever. Not worth my breath.
Since Britney is dating a non-celeb, paps are pretty much leaving her alone these days, SO WHO IS SMARTER?!
Damn, can you imagine what Kim puts up with every day? Kanye telling her he is the most brilliant husband she has ever had (not saying much), etc.?
Is Kanye's life with Kim like slavery?
