[Update: Kanye Also Ranted About The Paparazzi And Celebrity]
Kanye also took the opportunity to vent recent frustrations:
"I don't want nobody runnin' up on me with no cameras, tryna sell pictures and shit to magazines, asking me no dumbass questions, throwing me off of my focus and shit… I ain't no motherfuckin' celebrity."
"It's so funny, somebody asked me, when you do SNL, is you gon' do a skit about the paparazzi and shit, and humanize yourself? I ain't here to apologize to no motherfuckers, man! It ain't about me humanizing myself. At what point did I become inhuman, where I had to turn myself back? Or maybe I was demonized, or maybe I was treated inhumanely… in that type of situation."
"I ain't no motherfucking celebrity. I ain't runnin' for office. I ain't kissin' nobody's motherfuckin' babies - I'll drop your baby and you'll sue me and shit… I'm tryna make music that inspires people to be the best they can be, and I don't want nobody to ask nothing else of me."
