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.

He's just sour because he's in waaaaay too deep with kk. At first he looked like a kid in a candy store with her. Now look- every picture- he's MISERABLE.

He refuses to mock the relationship because he's an insecure crybaby.

Poor baby. I guess hooking up with a chick who happily made a sex tape and sold it to the world was fine and dandy since you knew ahead of time what she'd do for you in the bedroom. I'm assuming he wasn't informed enough to realize his baby momma was on three separate reality shows and calling paps to record her every move. Oh wait, I guess he never saw all the press around her and the throw away husband for 72 days. LMFAO.
Let's face it folks, Kanye has an M.O., he's always been about bad publicity, it's the reason he goes on stage at concerts and rants about something. I don't think he's performed ONE CONCERT where he wasn't on stage bitching about something. Just remember, this is the same SORE LOSER who wasn't nominated for a Grammy years ago and threatened to BOYCOTT the Grammy's unless he recieved a nomination. This is also the same loser who whined that if Obama didn't get elected he was moving to another country. This JAGOFF just loves his Douchebaggery, it's the only way he stays relevant. I'd also like to know, TMZ, go investigate, does Kanye sing PERFECT BITCH at all his shows?

He's a major jackA$$. Does that count as being a celebrity?

How do you spell hypocrite? K-A-N-Y-E! Seriously, if you're embarassed about hitting your head on that post in front of the paps, blame your baby mamma! She's the one that called them to let them know you would be there!

Seems he has bigger things to rant about like In Touch saying he's gay. I don't get how these mags make these statements and aren't sued.

What a little whiney baby. He shouldn't have hooked up with Kim if he hates the paps. She calls the photogs in, and he screams at them to leave. Oh yeah, this relationship is going to last. Not enough mirrors in any house for these two egos to compete.

He got one thing right...he's not a celebrity. He's a no talent hack with anger management issues

Kim K is the snapper. She must have a heck of a snapper to handle that mess of a man.

I have never seen such a miserable looking person. He must be a joy to live with and living with Kimmie Trashian is one day gonna make this fool loose it completely and then let us see what happens.
