Five of the most ridiculous things Kanye West has ever said...   10 years ago

Five of the most ridiculous things Kanye West has ever said...

Kanye West, the self proclaimed musical genius/Jesus, recently got into a Twitter spat with Jimmy Kimmel, so we’ve decided to take a look at some of stranger things that Kanye has ever said. Well, stranger than what he said to Kimmel...

Since joining Twitter, Kanye West has racked up nearly 10 million followers (most of whom are probably there for just his rants) and he’s certainly had a lot of interesting things to say to them. His most recent outburst came after Jimmy Kimmel parodied Kanye on his show, which you can check out here.


So in honour of Kanye's most recent Twitter meltdown here are five of the stranger things the rapper has come out with (sadly, some of Kanye’s tweets have since been deleted, but thankfully the text from those tweets live on). Much like his genius will in the afterlife... if you listen to him, obviously.

5. It’s probably one of his more infamous quotes, but back in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina hit the US, Kanye said the following on live TV: “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.”

It shocked a lot of people, especially Mike Myers.


4. Twitter: "How much is a shit load exactly? I’m assuming it’s more than a piss load."

This is coming from a guy who calls himself a ‘genius’.

3. Remember when Kanye stormed the stage at the MTV VMAs? Taylor Swift remembers…


2. One of Kanye’s all time greatest tweets has to be: “I have to dress Kim everyday so she doesn’t embarrass me.”

Not only is that disrespectful to his missus, but judging by the pic below it’s also a lie. A big, heavily pregnant, lie…

1. While speaking to VH1 Storytellers back in 2009 Kanye said: “I do have an ego and rightfully so. I think people should have an ego. Think about it – I don’t offend people, I don’t put anyone down. Do I name names or bring people down? That’s not my thing. But I give myself big-ups. I feel good about the music I make. God chose me. He made a path for me. I am God’s vessel.


But wait, there's more... Kanye then went on to say: “But my greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live.”

Just let that sink in…

So there you have it, Kanye’s latest Twitter spat with Jimmy Kimmel is pretty tame compared to some of the funny, ridiculous and utterly arrogant things he has said in the past.
