Delusions of Grandeur Trump Kanye West Once Again

It's been way, way too long since Kanye West has sat down and said a whole lot of ridiculous words in public, right? The world just hasn't seemed right lately, and this right here is the problem: the lack of Kanye's monstrous ego floating in the atmosphere. And while Kanye loves himself most of all, he also has a big ol' soft spot for letting us know how great he is. And that's how we got this magical interview!

On Kim Kardashian and their special love:

"Family time – it's what Kim gave me. She gave me everything. She gave me a family. She gave me a support system. She was in a powerful enough situation where she could love me without asking me for money, which is really hard for me to find."

On being espresso or something:

"If you're a Kanye fan, you're not a fan of me, you're a fan of yourself. I'm just the espresso. I'm just the shot in the morning."

On being totally awesome:

"I have reached the glass ceiling. As a creative person, as a celebrity. When I say that, it means, I want to do product, I am a product person. Not just clothing, but water bottle design, architecture, everything, you know, that you could think about. And I’ve been at it for 10 years, and I look around, and I say, wait a second, there’s no one in this space that looks like me, and if they are, they’re quiet as f---. So that means, wait a second, now we’re seriously, like, in a civil rights movement.”

On his excellent fashion sense:

"[We] brought the leather jogging pants six years ago to Fendi, and they said ‘no.’ How many motherf---ers you done seen with a leather jogging pant?”

On being the biggest rock star in the whole, wide world:

"Rap is the new rock and roll. We are culture. Rap is the new rock and roll. We are the rockstars. It's been like that for a minute, Hedi Slimane. It's been like that for a minute. We the biggest rockstars, and I'm the biggest of all of them. I'm the No. 1 rock star on the planet."

Leather jogging pants, espresso metaphors, AND Kanye's massive sense of self importance? It's going to be a great day, friends. Enjoy it.

He is a clown and great entertainment for us all just not in the way he intends to be, which makes him even more hilarious.
So thankyou KW for making me laugh out loud.
