People Look At Me Like I'm

Call him Air Fuhrer ... because this weekend, Kanye West compared himself to both Michael Jordan and Adolf Hitler during a performance in England.

West was performing at the Big Chill music festival Saturday night ... when he went on one of his signature rants ... this time focusing on the hardships of being so painfully misunderstood (see video below).

"I walk through the hotel and I walk down the street, and people look at me like I'm f**king insane ... like I'm Hitler."

He continued, "One day the light will shine through and one day people will understand everything I ever did."

Moments later, Kanye suggested that he needed to be the MJ of music, "Michael Jordan changed so much in basketball, he took his power to make a difference. It's so much f**king going on in music right now and somebody has to make a f**king difference."

Michael Jordan and Hitler folks ... Michael Jordan. And Hitler.

Oh. For a minute there I thought he meant the "Michael Jackson" of music, becaue I remember only 2 seconds after MJ died, Kanye reached out and tried to grab the crown off of the King of Pop and put it on his OWN head, announcing, "I want to be the next King of Pop!" -- as if, when a king dies, the first one who muscles his way over to the corpse can take the crown, place it on his OWN head and proclaim himself King. What Kanye doesn't understand is that you can't PROCLAIM yourself a king -- the PEOPLE are the only ones who can CROWN you a king. That's what they did to MJ; that's what they'll never do to Kanye.

As I told Kanye when he jumped Taylor Swift on stage and tore the mike out of her hand, indignantly proclaiming that her award really belonged to somone else, "You're not fit to shine Jackson's loafers, Kanye. You're just an uncivilized thug; Jackson was a gentleman."

I wish Kanye would just "SHUT THE F*** UP" and quit talking. No one cares to hear anything from him.

Will someone please tell Kanye West that wearing your pants down your butt originated in prison to let the other men know he is available! That fashion is the nastiest!
