Kanye West: "I Am Walt Disney. I Am Steve Jobs."
Mr. Kim Kardashian-in-waiting was performing at a show in France on Monday night when the Chicago MC decided to proverbially blow himself on stage, shooting a heavy load of arrogance from his cocky mouth and into the collective face of an unsuspecting Parisian crowd.
"There's no motherfuckin' awards or sponsorships or none of that shit that can stop the dedication to bringing y'all that real shit," West eloquently boasted between songs.
Watch Yeezy's entire self-congratulatory, motivational English speech directed at a French-speaking audience after the cut.

"No matter how they try to control you or the motherfucker next to you tries to peer-pressure you," West added, "you can do what you motherfucking want."
Not one for humility, West followed his unsolicited advice by conceitedly comparing himself to some of the most innovative and creative minds of the past 600 years.
"I am Picasso. I am Michelangelo. I am Basquiat. I am Walt Disney. I am Steve Jobs."
New Times could not independently verify Yeezy's claim, but we're almost certain he's not any those people, literally or figuratively.
Across the pond, West's current partner and baby-mama-to-be, Kim Kardashian, was also battling a severe case of verbal diarrhea often associated with
In the April issue of Cosmopolitan magazine (via MTV), the reality-television star, who can't marry Kanye because she's still technically married to her second husband of 72 days, Kris Humphries, blindly offers marriage advice for the magazine's 18- to 34-year-old demographic.
"I saw fast marriages like Khloe and Lamar's and that was what seemed to work," she says in the issue. "[Now] I say give it a good six months before you commit. Feelings change, even if it seems so lustful."
For those keeping tabs at home, it took less than three months before Kardashian filed for divorce from Humphries. They'd been dating and engaged for about ten months before the
publicity stunt wedding.
Maybe Kardashian should consider giving it a year before committing next time.
