Kanye West got into an altercation with a photog in the UK a few hours ago. The incident led to him being arrested at his hotel in Gateshead, England. He was investigated and released without charges. TMZ says:
TMZ just spoke with the photog — who claims Kanye did, in fact, smash his face in around 2AM London time.
According to the snapper, it all went down when Kanye was leaving the club with 4 girls, upset that he was being captured on film. After getting angry, Kanye allegedly got violent — shoving the camera into the snappers face, causing a cut on his nose.
Let’s hope his boyfriend doesn’t find out. Then he’ll really be in trouble.
Next up, Kanye West’s ego speaks. Again. In an interview Wednesday, Kanye proclaimed himself to be the voice of this generation.
“I realize that my place and position in history is that I will go down as the voice of this generation, of this decade, I will be the loudest voice,” he said in an interview on Wednesday. “It’s me settling into that position of just really accepting that it’s one thing to say you want to do it and it’s another thing to really end up being like Michael Jordan.”
“There were people who had the potential to do it but they went on vacation, so when Justin went on vacation I made albums,” he said. “And it just came out to be that.”
Kanye is right. Once every two years, I play his forgettable music while cleaning out my harddrive and think the same thing. So inspiring. Singing about diamonds and relationships and LOOK, A BIRDIE! Hehehe.
Did you know you could argue that Kanye is a pathological narcissist according to the DSM-IV? Surprising, isn’t it?
