Kanye West On The Taylor Swift Incident, Tupac, The Grammys And More

Kanye Wests Best Self-Comparisons Ever In Interview, West clarified what he meant: [I] think that when I compare myself to Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Howard Hughes, or whoever, its because Im trying to give people a little bit of context to the possibilities that are in front of me, as opposed to putting me in the rap category that the Grammys has put me in. In no way do I want to be the next any one of them. But I am the first me. So I only mention those other names to try to give people a little bit of context. West also revealed to interviewer Steve McQueen, the Oscar-nominated director of 12 Years a Slave, that god, sex, and alcohol got him through the onslaught of negative publicity that followed after he crashed the MTV VMA stage in 2009 while Taylor Swift was accepting an award. West is in a much happier place, these days, with fiance Kim Kardashian and their daughter North West . Opening up about fatherhood and being in love, West told Interview, Its all brand new, how it feels to be a father.

Kanye West lets loose in an interview with '12 Years a Slave' director Steve McQueen -- talks Grammy snubs, Steve Jobs and more



I suppose I shouldnt be surprised, but its kind of odd, considering what youve done in music over the last decade. WEST: I wasnt even nominated for Best Album this year. This year, I only got two nominations by the Grammys: for Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song. MCQUEEN: Well, thats my problem with all this stuff.

West also spoke about being in tune with his artistic ambition and spirit, pointing to old Tupac interviews in which the rapper spoke simply about how he "wanted the thugs to be recognized," a mission somewhat realized, for example, in the stunning success of Jay Z . "But my mission is very different from Tupac's and I'm not Tupac," West continued. "But I think that when I compare myself to Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Howard Hughes or whoever, it's because I'm trying to give people a little bit of context to the possibilities that are in front of me, as opposed to putting me in the rap category that the Grammys has put me in. In no way do I want to be the next any one of them. But I am the first me." West added that he encounters a similar kind of marginalization at the Grammys where this year his source latest record, Yeezus, notched just two nominations , for Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song for "New Slaves"as he does in his other endeavors, such as his forays into fashion.
