Kanye West

Rants About Paparazzi

'I'm Not a Celebrity'

5/16/2013 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Kanye West says he's a "terrible, terrible, terrible celebrity" ... who sees the paparazzi as a distraction from making "real" music ... and last night, he bitched about it for a solid 3-and-a-half minutes.

West was on stage during a performance in NYC when he went on one of his trademark rants -- this time, he put the paps in his crosshairs.

He complained about the attention ... he complained about people wanting to take his photo ... though he never specifically talked about his run-in with a parking sign last week.

West also said he refuses to mock his rocky relationship with the paps when he appears on "SNL" this weekend because "it's not a joke."

Kanye also never mentioned his baby mama Kim Kardashian during the rant -- interesting considering she's a pro at handling the paps and has masterfully used the snappers to turbocharge her career.

People Annoy Me    

Then ignore them. Don't answer questions, don't look sad when walking on the street. YOU caused yourself to hit that pole. Not them, Not the pole, you did, Mr. West. Cameras will be around you most likely your entire life. (Or when you get washed up). Either deal with it now, or stay in the house like a scared child.

Kev the Realist    

He is an arrogant, angry gay, A$$hole who is the father of the soon to be bastard Kraptrashian child, with his talentless, gyspsy whore , useless KRAPTRASHIAN slug. Maybe someday soon he will loose his allready out of control temper and do something which will get his sorry ass arrested and then maybe he will go away to jail or he will pick on someone who is a real may and not a pansy like him and beat the crap out of him. Certainlythis would be tops on my wish list. He is pathetic

If he's not a celebrity (and who am I to argue) maybe TMZ will stop covering him. Let's try that.

Your S&M Girlfriend    

So sorry little man but the Kardashians own your over-the-top egotistical ass. You should have thought about that before you dipped your wick in the well-used, diseased vagina of that woman with the never ending ass. Tell you what, why not wait until the next televised awards ceremony and hijack the microphone when your beloved Beyonce is speaking and tell everyone about your problems. Embrace your inner Kardashian Kanye. They own you now. It's kind of like slavery except the trappings are much nicer.

KW is a self absorbed dooshbag - I'm still waiting to see what happens to a pretty little white girl that walks up and takes mic off him to comment about something - his bodyguards (not him) will beat her into coma. His actions at the Grammys were atrocious - and there's NO WAY he'd let anyone treat him the same way. F' Kanye, his media whore (newest) baby mama, and the entire antisocial rap game where thuggin is more respected than actual hard work and makin an honest living. Thankfully, a bullet or syringe will end his miserable life - live by the thug, die by the thug. Waste of semen and egg is he...

There is a sign at the end of my street that is crooked and I was wondering if Kanye could come over and bang his head into the sign to straighten it up.
