Kanye West: ‘I’m Sorry Daytime Television. I’m Sorry for the Realness’

“Picasso is dead, Steve Jobs is dead. Walt Disney is dead. Name somebody living that you can mention in the same breath as them.”

Kanye West appeared on Ellen’s day-time show to promote new album ‘The Life Of Pablo’ (Spotify) yesterday. What probably was an well prepared script coming with the interview, like in every boring US talk show these days, became an outspoken rant from Kanye West. Kanye started started covering the human race with some valid points. Mr. West got my full attention:

“Don’t tell me about being likable. We got 100 years here. We’re one race. Human race. One civilization. We’re blip in the existence of the universe. And we’re constantly trying to pull each other down, not doing things to help each other. That’s my point. It’s like, I’m shaking talking about it. I know it’s daytime TV. But I feel like I can make a difference while I’m here. I feel that I can make things better through my skill set. I’m an artist … I have a condition called synesthesia where I see sounds. I see them. Everything that I sonically make is a painting. I see it. I see the importance. I see the importance in the value of everyone being able to experience a more beautiful life.” 

Ellen took on Kanye in a game of quick wit. Someone’s “bound 2” win, but who?!
