Freaking Kanye West – Always up to something that’s no good, and it’s always involving the paparazzi. We saw him attack paparazzi, we’ve seen him run into a pole and BLAME it on the paparazzi…Now according to TMZ, he’s telling Nate Goldberg, (the lawyer of the photographer that he beat up and smashed his camera):
“I’m the smartest celebrity you’ve ever f***ing dealt with. I’m not Britney Spears.” Oh, and he’s swearing it under oath.
Now before you guys go and start to crucify Yeezus (he-he), something tells me that this interview between Nate Goldberg fumigated in tension. So despite the fact that Kanye has a history of saying outlandish stuff, you can sense that this time his words might deprive from frustration.
He tells Goldberg, “I’m in the business of trying to make dope s**t for the world. You’re in the business of representing scums and trying to make as much money as long as there’s this lapse in the law.”
At this point, Goldberg bashes on Kanye, saying that the song “Flashing Lights” was just a rant complaining about the paparazzi. Kanye interrupts him with “You have to ask for a hall pass. You can’t just say the ‘n’ word around me. It offends me because you’re a white person saying ‘ni**a.'”
Kanye goes on to talk about the parallel between today’s era and the era of the 1960’s referring to the ‘n’ word use previously explained. Except, he takes the angle in the perspective of celebrities…yeah, the rich and well off people…
“”I mean in the ’60s people used to hold up ‘Die N****r’ signs when my parents were in the sit-ins also.” Goldberg asks if he equates the struggle of blacks in the past with celebrities today and Kanye says, “Yes, 100 … I equate it to discrimination. I equate it to inequalities.”
I think he went through all of these detours and distractions to get to this point right here:
“We, as group of minorities here in L.A., as celebrities have to ban together to influence guys like this — guys trying to take the picture, guys trying to get the big win, guys trying to get the check.”
Whatever you say, Kanye.
