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.

Im not sure who is right here. He isn't really a celebrity, more of a publicity whore....but he is in the spotlight so that dose make him a celebrity to some extent. I guess his biggest celebrity act is donating sperm to another publicity whore..but that one really has no talent at all...well maybe one...but only men with a lot of money and are willing to pay her for it can see how talented she is....

All of them complain about the paparazzi but the second they stop paying attention to them, and running after them for pictures. They pout whine and from what I hear give the pap tips on where they will be.

1. As soon as you sent out your first press release to promote yourself, you signed up for celebrity. 2. WTF did you think you were getting into when you got with Kim?? She's a media whore. 3. Since you knocked up said media whore, you sentenced your baby to the same attention you are bitching about. Forever. Congratulations. This is your life.
