... Just Like a Police Officer

First Tom Cruise, now Kanye West is comparing his profession to BEING AT WAR ... saying just like soldiers and cops, HE PUTS HIS LIFE ON THE LINE when he goes to work.

Yeezus made the statements to Saturday Night Online this weekend, saying rapping is very dangerous work -- "This is like being a police officer or something ... or like war or something."

"You're literally going out to do your job every day knowing that something could happen to you."

But Kanye says it's not JUST the physical risks (he says he could slip on the stage) ... KW also risks getting his feelings hurt -- because people could watch a show and decide they don't like him.

Yeah, just like a cop or a soldier.

He had to fight Taylor Swift before, guys. The strength that it must have taken him to get on that stage... take a microphone from a teenaged girl... That was some hardcore sh*t. You know?

How can you as an artist even consider saying that your job is like war or even close to anything that has to do with soldiers or cops. Your life is much more easier with all that money. Cops and Soldiers protect our countries and you are a rapper an artist you get to go home to your family everyday and travel the work if you want. How dare you compare yourself to a cop or a soldier. Soldiers are gone for months at a time leaving behind their families and friends they can be killed at any moment in time. Cops deal with peoples bull**** and put their lives on the line everyday. PLEASE YOUR NO SOLDIER OR COP SO NEVER COMPARE YOURSELF TO ONE UNTIL YOU HAVE LIVED THAT LIFE STYLE.

Kanye is just ignorant and every time he opens his mouth something stupid comes out. And every time his Kim opens her mouth he puts something in it. Wish this idiot would just go away.

I went out of my way to create a user ID just so I could comment. Kanye West should just go away. He is one of the most ignorant/clueless people on the damn planet. I can't stand him.

By far the best interview with kanye is The Breakfast Club Power 105.1 you can search for it on youtube. They make him look as ridiculous as he is and let him know that no one cares about his impact on fashion etc. Personally he should have been sent to the looney bin when he compared himself to Jesus. I can't believe people pay to watch this bozo. He wants to compare himself to great influential artists but all he cares about is his money and brand. I haven't seen him give free turkeys or free sex tapes to the needy. What's up with that? All great people give of themselves to others what's he sharing his stupidity?
