Kanye West got engaged to Kim Kardashian
on Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 9 Episode 5 in October.
So the rapper should be relaxed and content, right?
That wasn't the state in which Kanye found himself Saturday during a concert in New Jersey, as he added to his collection of classic rants by donning a mask and going off on what he perceives to be a racist media.
"I don’t care who you are — TMZ, E!, Barbara Walters — don’t play yourself. Respect it as such,” yelled West, in reference to his engagement to Kim.
West then compared himself to Miles Davis, Prince and Missy Elliot.
He went on to say his life is not a "spoof," taking issue (we guess) with parodies of his relationship such as SNL's Waking Up with Kim and Kanye.
“Write that mother-cking headline when you try to make me look like a maniac or an animal, because you afraid of interracial relationships," he yelled. "Because you afraid of the future, because you afraid of a rapper that was raised by two educated parents.”
The speech also touched on corporate greed, his many enemies and his love for his competitors such as Drake.
But West wanted to make one thing clear at the end of it.
"Don’t think that I’m upset, because I’m actually very, very happy.”
Gee, Kanye. Why would we ever think otherwise? Here are 10 reasons, we suppose...j
