Kanye West was granted time during the MTV VMAs to present his new music video and to talk about whatever he wanted … seriously. So of course, the world clinched their jaws as the rapper took the stage to essentially to speak Kanyeisms.
The rapper, clad in all white, took on a number of topics, including fame, Taylor Swift and his famous wife, Kim Kardashian. In case you missed it, here are five things Yeezy ranted about during his speech.
Being Famous: Kanye defended his controversial “Famous” video and explained that the video was basically about famous people and how they all essentially came over “on the same boat.” “For people to understand just how blessed we are, [Famous] was an expression of our now, our fame right now, us on the inside of the TV… [I had the] audacity to put Anna Wintour right next to Donald Trump.”
Ye even gave his ex, Amber Rose, a shout out before calling out his “G” of a wife.
Taylor Swift: After mentioning that 22 people were killed in Chicago last week, West discussed the recent controversy between he and Taylor Swift. The rapper revealed yet again that he called the singer to get permission to call her a “bit*h” and suggest he made her “famous” in his track “Famous.” “Bro, I love all of y’all. That’s why I called her.”
Three Keys To Keeping People Impoverished: After explaining that he’s been advised by “rich white people” to not “compare yourself to Steve Jobs. Don’t compare yourself to Walt Disney,” the rapper broke down the three keys to keeping people impoverished. “That’s taking away their esteem, taking away their resources, and taking away their role models. My role models are artists, merchants. There’s less than ten that I can name in history. Truman. Ford. Hughes. Disney. Jobs. West.”
Diddy Is Kanye’s Idol: Before the world premiere of his music video “Fade,” the rapper explained that he was “standing in front of my idol, Puff Daddy. I’m standing in front of my wife, Kim Kardashian West. I’m standing in front of the future: Chance the Rapper, 2 Chainz, Jaden Smith. Bro, we are undeniably the influence, the thought leaders.”
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
