This just in: Kanye West takes himself VERY seriously.
And the rapper doesn’t like it when others don’t view him the same way.
On stage at the Made in America festival in Philadelphia on Saturday night, West took aim at comedian Jay Pharoah for his impersonation of Kanye at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, saying he actually confronted the SNL cast member about it soon afterward.
They want to make a joke out of how hard we work," West said. “It's fine and all funny and everything, but don't distract from our vision. It's not a joke what we do up here. This music that we do is not a joke. What we do culturally is not a joke."
Supposedly, Kanye has plans for a Kim Kardashian cathedral as well - and we wish we could say this were a joke.
"I called Jay Pharoah right after the MTV awards," Kanye continued. "I said, 'I appreciate your show, but let me tell you about my story. Let me tell you about what I went through to get to that position'...
"So we ain't gonna have no black comedians going onstage spoofing the people that's working hard, and helping the next man out."
North West’s angry father also made a mention of his relationship with Kim Kardashian during this diatribe.
"For me to be in a very publicized interracial relationship is not a joke,” he told the crowd of his new marriage. “It's something that should be treated with respect cause we’re all in this together."
But is Kanye even in this anymore? A recent tabloid report claimed he dumped a pregnant Kardashian last month. Scandalous!!!
(Also, obviously erroneous. But still.)
