Kanye Reveals Why He Wears A Mask & We’re Like OK, Now Sit Down
Damnit Drake, this is all your fault!
Thousands of Drake fans gathered at the Wireless Music Festival in London’s Finsbury Park on Saturday only to find out that their light skin hero had fallen ill and would no longer be able to headline the show. Cue Kanye West. And just in case you were thinking “great replacement,” you are sadly mistaken…
Mr. West was booed as he went on a rant (his second one in two nights) about the media, fashion industry and him being of all things, shy. It didn’t help that his show was late. According to reports, ‘Ye kicked made it 15-minutes into his set before throwing a hissy fit that left the crowd chanting “We want Drake.”
No worries, the boos didn’t stop Ye from getting his point across.
“You know damn well no black guys or celebrities making Louis Vuitton nothing,” he said. “They let Pharrell make those [Louis Vuitton] glasses, and we liked ’em, right? They let me make those [Louis Vuitton] shoes and we liked ’em, right? They said, ‘No, no, no n**ga. Not no more. That’s too much. Stay in your place. Stand in front of that show and wear this jacket I made you. Stay in your place! Do what you’re paid to do! Don’t embarrass yourself trying to chase your dreams. Save face.”
He continued, “That’s why I got this f**king mask on. Cause I ain’t worried about saving face. F**k my face! That sounded wrong. Pause. They finally got a headline. But f**k whatever my face is supposed to mean and f**k whatever the name Kanye is supposed to mean, it’s about my dreams! It’s about anybody’s dreams. It’s about creating. It’s not about the idea about being a f**king celebrity, it’s not about the idea of being a black man trying to do fashion and s**t.
And it didn’t stop there. “I’m very shy in real life,” he said. “Because I’m too shy to put out some b*******. Sometimes it’s hard because I’m too shy to carry off a lot. I’m arrogant and shy and a little bit lazy. I’m too shy to lie to anybody and I’m too arrogant to make myself lie to anyone because lies take too much work.”
