Kanye West: ‘I’m working on one mission, and that’s a mission from God’


Ugh, Kanye West is still talking. I mean… YAY. Because I actually enjoy his nonsensical rants, even though he gives me a headache because I’m trying to figure out his philosophical loop-de-loops. Kanye spoke to a Power106 FM yesterday and once again explained his thoughts on power, change, creativity and President Obama.

Kanye West has never been shy when it comes to voicing his opinions though they may raise eyebrows from time to time. This time he went on rant during a radio station interview criticizing elected leaders, saying he is on a ‘mission from God’.

The 37-year-old rapper was interviewed on Power106 FM this morning and said of President Obama, ‘You can’t effect change from inside the White House like that …You gotta have the money,’ but admitted, ‘Good ideas usually aren’t connected to money as much …Creativity and extreme genius are extremely cheap.’

However, then he went on to contradict himself saying that good ideas ‘usually aren’t connected to money as much.’

West bragged about his own ‘creativity and extreme genius,’ but then said that people who knock him him for comparing himself to Apple founder Steve Jobs and other innovators are simply misinterpreting his true meaning.

‘Don’t worry about how I’m saying what I’m saying,’ he insisted. ‘Look at what I’m saying and how I feel and how my intent is.’ He then had a warning for those who criticize his thoughts. ‘You do not want to go against the power,’ he said. ‘I’m working on one mission, and that’s a mission from God.’

Sigh… I would fight with him about this, I would yell about the insanity of telling his haters that he’s on a mission from god… but I can’t. It’s not worth it. Just pat him on the head and move on. Which is basically what Annie Leibovitz did too. After Kanye criticized Annie because she, in his words, “pulled out of the wedding, because I think she was scared of the idea of celebrity,” Annie must have words with Yeezus and they released a statement together:

Kanye West and photographer Annie Leibovitz may not have teamed up to capture West’s recent wedding to Kim Kardashian, but the artistic heavyweights are working together now to squash reports of drama between them. Forty-eight hours after he made the accusations, West released a joint statement with Leibovitz to Us Weekly, changing his tune.

“Kanye West’s comments about Annie Leibovitz while speaking at the 2014 Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival have been taken out of context and sensationalized,” the statement reads. “Although Kanye expressed frustration that he was not able to collaborate with Annie Leibovitz at his recent wedding, he is not assigning blame, and is not accusing Annie in any way. Kanye and Annie’s representatives were in negotiations for weeks that were not completed by the time of the wedding.”

The statement included a quote from a representative for the shutterbug, reading, “Annie would have been happy to do the portrait but she was never confirmed.”

“It was Kanye’s dream to bring together for the wedding his favorite creatives – Riccardo Tisci on the dress, Vanessa Beecroft on the experience, and Andrea Bocelli – Kim’s favorite singer – singing Kim’s favorite song as she walked down the aisle,” the joint explanation continued. “The first choice to capture one of the most special days in Kim and Kanye’s life: Annie Leibovitz. Annie Leibovitz – the legendary photographer responsible for Kim and Kanye’s recent Vogue cover – is not known to shoot weddings. But Kanye West dreams big. He loves and respects Annie as a true artist and wanted to bring her eye for beauty to the imagery of the event.”

While Leibovitz’s absence may have been a loss for Kardashian, it was a win for Conor McDonnell, a 22-year-old photographer who nabbed the wedding gig. His image of Mr. and Mrs. West kissing in front of a wall of flowers earned him the title of taking the most-liked photo on Instagram.

[From Us Weekly]

Long story short, Kanye begged Annie to do the photos at the wedding and she kept saying no, and he got pissy about it and bad-mouthed her and she was like, “Slow your roll dude.” #YeezusTranslations

I’m also including some photos of Kim back in LA yesterday. Is it just the unflattering clothes or has she gained a lot of weight since the wedding?

    Now he thinks he is a Blues Brother. I just can’t with Yeezus anymore.

    • Jen2 says:

      I would love to see the Nun go after him with that pointer that looked more like metal than wood and whack the hell out of him like she did to the Brothers for uttering that phrase!!!! Just loved the James Brown church scene, Aretha and Cab Calloway in white tails!!!

    • HH says:

      Because Kanye wasn’t ranting for a while, I think we all forgot just how crazy he was. And now reading this, I think it’s the ultimate reason Beyonce and JayZ didn’t show up to the wedding. His rants/thoughts have gotten excessively crazy since being with Kim. I don’t know what caused it, but if he’s anything like this in person, that friendship would decline REAL fast. He and Jay hung out a lot in the beginning of the relationship, but that’s when Kanye was still “fun crazy”. Now, he’s just gotten looney.

      • me says:

        Kanye is a user. He only wants to be seen with people he sees as number 1. I don’t think Jay-Z and Kanye are truly good friends. It’s more business than anything. Kanye was not at Jay’s wedding and vice versa. Nor was Kimye at Blue’s bday. Let’s see if the Carter’s show up at North’s bday. Why is Kanye with Kim? Why does he view her as number 1? That is a mystery. Ok maybe her porn tape was the number 1 best selling of all time?

      • Lee says:

        @me, Kanye is the most blatant example of narcissistic personality disorder in celebrity culture today. His need to only be associated with ‘number 1′s’ reflects his own God complex, and Kim is married to him (the ultimate no1), therefore she is number 1 by association. Narcissists are shallow by definition, and it’s highly doubtful that he has anything beyond a superficial relationship with anyone – anyone associated with him is there to supply his unquenchable need for attention and adulation.

        Kim is too narcissistic and shallow herself to know any different, especially considering the type of person her mother is.

    • Cupcake says:

      My thoughts exactly! Glad to see it was the first comment. No way is Kanye cool enough to be a BB!

    • GirlyGirl says:

      I didn’t read the part of the Bible that says “Thou shalt go forth and act like a bat$hit lunatic”

    • FinallyFr33 says:

      We should call him Kanye Kardashian and see if it catches on. He idolizes them so much he should carry their name.

  2. Kate2 says:

    Oh FFS.


  3. GeeMoney says:

    ‘I’m working on one mission, and that’s a mission from God.’

    Does that mission include annoying the crap out of everyone with your ridiculous a** relationship with Kim Kardashian as well?!?!?!?

  4. Jaderu says:

    And thoust shall blessedeth thou Yeezus with thine plastic butt implantethed wife and they shall go forth and be fruity….AMEN.

    • Tracy says:


    • Suzen says:

      As for the weight gain… perhaps hip implants to compliment the butt implants? Now her colossal tush curves all the way around. Mmm smexy no? No.

      • Petee says:

        She has had fat injections and lipo.You are not supposed to gain any weight after these procedures are done.With lipo they will grow somewhere else and with fat inceptions they just keep growing because they weren’t sucked out.That is why she just looked horrible when she was pregnant .I think she was just as shocked as all of us.This is the body she is stuck with.If she tried to fix it,it would prove she is a liar.And yes she has butt implants too.

  5. Loopy says:

    I guess his no interviews hiatus is over.

  6. The Original Mia says:

    For the love of God, please STFU, Kanye!

    Seems Annie’s people reached out to Kanye to remind him that he didn’t have a contract with Annie and to stop slandering her. Hah! Dumba$$ had to walk back his words. Idiot.

    • Chrissy says:

      I wish she would have sued him. He would have been the one to help
      her with her financial difficulties while bringing him down a few
      pegs IMO. What a moron!

  7. Tiffany27 says:

    She’s gained, but she hasn’t been home in like weeks.

    • honeybucket says:

      Did Kim really allow herself to get pissed on in her porn film?

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        I’ve never seen her work but I hear this does not happen in the widely viewed version but it is rumored to have happened and been in the unedited original cut. Probably an urban legend but it has stuck to her like gum on a shoe.

      • Trillion says:

        I didn’t see that part, but I can tell you this: For how fake she is, girl cannot properly fake an orgasm. I’m embarrassed that I know this.

  8. Sayrah says:

    Just like the blues brothers!

  9. aims says:

    I don’t know if he’s a narcissist or he’s just saying smack to get press. I mean if he truly believes what he’s saying, he’s out of his mind. Also, Annie has photographed amazing people and her pictures are incredible. Why would she waste her time on dumb and dumber?

    • FingerBinger says:

      Kanye IS a narcissist, there’s no doubt about that. I’m not sure what’s going on with Annie Leibovitz. How you go from taking photos of Queen Elizabeth to taking photos of Kim and Kanye is a little baffling.

      • Renee says:

        I think that Annie has money troubles. I’m not clear on all of it but at one point I think she ended losing the rights to some of her most iconic photos and she bought three brownstones and reno’d them to make one giant house and that set her back some. I think that she put her photos up as collateral for some loans and then when she couldn’t make the payments she lost the rights to them…she was also Susan Sontag’s partner and I suspect that she may have worked less during Sontag’s illness. I am hazy on the details (and can’t be bothered to look them up) but that’s why she may be taking on work that would have once been deemed beneath he.r

      • Pepsi Presents...Coke says:

        1) She’s garbage with money
        2) She’s outlived her name

    • Kiddo says:

      Annie went down hill since her incredible beginnings. She started to see herself as one with celebrity and lost her edge.

  10. word says:

    Has it been 6 months? He said no rants for 6 months.

    Also, why does Kanye think we HAVE to listen to him? Why does he think his thoughts and words are better than everyone else’s? How about he listen to someone for a change? He sounds like some lunatic who went on a killing rampage and then said “It was a mission from God”.

    If Kim is back in LA already why didn’t she just take North to France with her for the one night she spent there instead of having her daughter fly back to LA alone? I hear there’s a big bday party for North going on this weekend so expect a lot of fake “happy family” pics soon.

    • swack says:

      He has already ranted before his six months was up. He didn’t last two months if I’m not mistaken.

    • jwoolman says:

      Nori wasn’t alone on the flight. I’m sure her great-aunt (her real mom…) was with her. Kanye’s aunt is another person Kim pretends isn’t there in interviews, but she must be the one really raising Nori. Hopefully.

  11. Dawn says:

    This little man is merely insane. If he ever walked his talk it would be truly a miracle from god. He just blathers on and on and people let him. That’s what I don’t get. And please don’t tell me what you think he meant to say. Dude is 37 years old and more than capable of speaking for himself. He needs meds. He and Kim are up their own butts so far they can’t tell how turned off most people are by them and that is a good thing because as they go, so goes the Kardashians. Kim will NEVER be an A-lister no matter how much Kanye West tries to make it so.

    • word says:

      That’s just it. He’s a talker not a do’er. Yes he has had some hit songs and two sneakers that sold out quickly (but that’s because they were very limited edition). Other than that, what has he done that we are supposed to bow down to him for? He married a porn star. Good job Kanye ! He spent 4 days photoshopping his wedding pic. Good job Kanye ! He says he’s an artist and knows design, yet he can’t seem to sell his bachelor pad that he himself designed. It is gaudy ! I have seen pics of the interior, and he has such horrible taste. Oh I forgot, we owe leather jogging pants to his genius. Way to go Kanye ! He is a very sore loser. I’d hate to play monopoly with him.

    • Lady D says:

      Holy crap, he’s 37? I thought he was about a decade+ younger the way he speaks.

  12. Nicolette says:

    What’s the mission? To see how big Kim’s ass can get and how small a size it can squeeze into? Good Lord, please make this fool STFU already.

  13. RobN says:

    He needs to leave Jake and Elwood out of this.

  14. capepopsie says:

    This couple, really!
    I´m lost for Words actually.
    I Think the “patting on the head” is the best option here.
    I´ll say this: He´s got enough self esteem for a
    thousand individuals, that´s for sure! Gosh. . . .

  15. chasingadalia says:

    I’m glad that I’m not the only one that went, “You’re not the Blues Brothers!”

  16. Hannah says:

    Andrea Bocelli is Kim’s favorite singer?

    • Jayna says:

      No one believes that. This wedding was all about Kanye. He orchestrated the whole thing, his vision, his wants.

      • Dawn says:

        Ummm….I don’t even refer to that as a wedding as there was nothing legally binding to it. It was an event that Kanye wanted to have and Kim had Kris talk E! into footing the bill for and what NBC should be ashamed of. In fact if they are married legally anywhere we have yet to see the proof. And with these two stunt queens I believe nothing without proof.

      • Hannah says:

        Exactly. Andrea Bocelli is who Kanye wants Kim’s favorite singer to be.

      • idk says:

        Kim morphs into whomever she is dating/married to at the time. She has no taste of her own, no opinions of her own, no likes/dislikes of her own.

  17. Patricia says:

    Look how great Kim looks when she actually smiles! What a world of difference. I’m not feeling bad for her, but smiling would probably be a rarity for me, too, if I had to live with this batshit-crazy narcissist!

    Also can we chill on her weight? You can’t tell at all if she’s gained due to the outfit she’s wearing. And so what if she has?!

    • Mingy says:

      I thought the same about the weight comments on her recent posts..so she gained a few pounds on her “honeymoon” or wtv..I dont even see it.
      Somebody help! I just defended Kim Kardashian. I must be on a birthday high.

  18. Eleonor says:

    The only one who’s not the Pope, and can claim to be “in mission from God” and not sound a total idiot is Johnny Rosch.


  19. Kiddo says:

    Oh come on, Kanye, just come out and say it, you are god.

  20. DrFunkenstein says:

    Messianic proclamations are not uncommon for narcissists.

  21. Jayna says:

    Delusions of grandeur, hypermania, megalomania, narcissistic. What’s the diagnosis?

    • claire says:

      Pathological narcissism seems to fit him. Whatever the diagnosis is, I have no qualms with straight up believing this guy is mentally ill. I can’t stand the guy and think he’s an asshole. But detaching from my dislike, and viewing him as mentally ill, it is sad. I highly doubt this tale is going to end well for Kanye.

      • Chrissy says:

        Don’t forget the drug use! He looks coked up a lot of the

      • Petee says:

        I think he is a druggie too.Coke or speed.Most likely coke.He starts talking about one thing,forgets and starts ranting about another.

  22. dorothy says:

    Instead of spending his time trying to convince the world he’s amazing, how about spending some time with your child. How’s that for a novel idea?

    • me says:

      So true . He spends all his time trying to make the world think he’s amazing but yet the one person who he should be trying to impress is his daughter (of which he spends very little time with). She will never think she has an amazing father if he continues to ignore her like this. That is so sad.

    • claire says:

      Or actually doing something amazing besides displaying infinite amount of bad taste and singing in autotune the raps that other people wrote for him.

    • TheOneandOnlyOnly says:

      His child probably can’t handle his extreme genius.

    • Mingy says:

      He seems so angry and unstable, I can’t see how his crazy ass could be a good dad..at all.

  23. Kiddo says:

    Someone doesn’t handle rejection well, I take it, lol.

  24. original kay says:

    God has a plan for you, Gaius…..er, Kanye.

  25. Josephine says:

    The way he lives his life is so opposite of anything that God would do. Of all of his remarks, I find this one the most horrible. Those working for God are humble and giving people, everything he is not.

  26. june says:

    This guy is going to be O.J. Simpson to the family he married into.

  27. idk says:

    So he’s working on a “mission from God” huh? I didn’t know God was so preoccupied with brands, labels, and living in excess. You’d think God would want him to go do some charity work, use his own hands and not just his money, and really try to make the world a better place. Oh but nope, God wants leather jogging pants.

  28. Kristin says:

    God, I seriously can’t stand this a-hole. I honestly don’t think I can name a single person who has a bigger ego than this douche. I really think he believes he’s the second coming of Christ. I always remember years ago when he was first starting out, he lost the Grammy for best new artist to Maroon 5 and instead of getting to enjoy their award, Maroon 5 actually felt the need to apologize to Kanye because he threw such a temper tantrum when he lost. What grown-ass man acts like that?? Was he not hugged enough as a child or something? He might be talented but his God complex turns me off so much that I can’t even stand to listen to his music. And Kim is such a narcissistic airhead, I can’t for the life of me imagine what the hell they talk about. What I wouldn’t give to be a fly on the wall in their apartment to listen in on one of their conversations.

    • Ag says:

      yeah, i’ve always kind of liked him and his music, but his rants and the kardashian connection have ruined it for me.

    • Shelley says:

      Yeah I’ve often wondered what Kim and Kanye have to talk about. I can’t even imagine what a conversation between them sounds like. Kim actually comes across as pleasant enough in interviews, if on the dumb side, but Kanye seems completely unglued. I wonder if he speaks this way all the time and in private.

    • Lady D says:

      I don’t know that I could listen to those two have a conversation.

  29. Jay says:

    Here’s a clue: if people don’t already see you as a genius without you having to tell them you are, you’re not a genius.

  30. Ag says:

    “the artistic heavyweights” – muahaha! what has he been doing that’s so “artistic” and “genius” lately? wedding planning? that does take skill and creativity, but i’m sure most of it was done by others. or is he talking about dressing kim in a variety of ill-fitting outfits? or photo-shopping wedding pics?

  31. boo says:

    STFU Kanye, over and out.

  32. jwoolman says:

    Andrea Bocelli is Kim’s favorite singer? Really?

    I’m also trying to digest the idea that the alternate for Leibovitz was a 22 year old. Nice picture, though.

  33. Chris says:

    Whenever I hear about Kanye being a genius I’m reminded of the Kanye fishsticks episode on South Park.

  34. Palermo says:

    The men in the white coats need to come and take him away, far far away

  35. Altariel says:

    The more he talks, the more I wish him upon Kim forever. And her family upon him. Forever.

  36. happy says:

    I sorta kinda like the outfit from the knees up. I personally would have left the jeans unrolled and paired it all with chucks or biker boots, black heels if I had to wear them. Honestly I just hate nude heels unless its on someone like Kate Middleton

  37. Jade says:

    Does he even go to church? I’m genuinely asking.

  38. eliza says:

    The only mission he is on is the mission to be on my last nerve.

    Mission: Accomplished.

  39. marge says:

    I think she looks pregnant. Her face and boobs look bigger.

  40. Hootysgram says:

    No..she hasn’t gained a lot of weight since the wedding…it’s only been like two weeks. She just forgot her Spanx. As far as him being on a “mission from God”….I thought I faintly heard the theme to Twilight Zone playing in my head..as I read that header! He is totally delusional. WTH?

  41. allheavens says:

    Kayne is a narcissist but before he at least channeled his narcissism into some great music. I think he has been in a downward spiral since the death of his mother and is on the edge of a mental breakdown. The Kardashians were the last thing he needed in his life.

    Not making excuses for him but homeboy ain’t right.

  42. jasmine says:


    Someone on Dlisted posted this youtube video of Kanye going crazy at Bonaroo when he saw people had spray painted “F*** Kanye” on the porta potties…and then when he starts yelling his ridiculous rants people just started booing him, it was hilarious!

    Sorry I dont know how to make it clickable

    • word says:

      He is trying to force people to like him. It’s ridiculous. Why didn’t he try to force Kim to like him 7 years ago when they first met?

  43. fu says:

    Is it true that Bruce always stares at Kanye’s crotch, with a lustful longing?
    How many boyfriends does he have on the DL ?

    Bruce really wants to pee on Kanye while Kris films it.

  44. Amelia says:

    He should also take some elocution classes. His grammar and accent/intonation lacks decorum.
