Pardon the Interruption: Kanye Comes Clean

The following is an excerpt from Ron Mexico City’s exclusive interview with Kanye West in the wake of a Kanyegate-marred 2009 VMAs.

[Blogger's Note: Like he hasn’t done this kind of shit before or something.]

Ron Mexico: You’re famous for your ridiculous outbursts, but you’ve earned quite a reputation for awards show freakouts. Are you aware of this? I mean, you did—

Kanye West: Yo, Ron. I’m really happy for you getting this blog and your new show and all. I’m gonna let you finish. But, Bossip had one of the greatest black weblogs of all time! One of the greatest black weblogs of all time!

RM: *long pause* You finished, nigga? *another long pause* *disgusted stare* See, that’s what I’m talkin about right there. Do you think before you say shit?

KW: I exist. Therefore I think.

RM: *Rubbing left temple* Before you squashed Taylor Swift’s special moment like a ladybug under your Hennessy-soaked Martin Louis the King Vuitton slip-ons, did you see the look on her face?

KW: Nah. I was lookin at the “Single Ladies” video on the widescreen in my mind and thinking about how that dance and that gold Nintendo Power Glove was getting jerked for such an inferior composition. Then I was thinking about why “Best I Ever Had” wasn’t nominated for best direction. Then I asked myself a greater philosophical question: Why can’t I be nominated for and win the female categories as well? That’s not even fair.

RM: *eyebrows raised in astonishment* She looked as if to say, “Is this really happening to me? Am I getting Kanyed right now?” Are you even aware of what it means to be “Kanyed”?

KW: Yeah, I saw. I realize now I shouldn’t have done that. I should really keep my greatness to myself more. Like, when I have an opinion that could really change the world, sometimes it’s my responsibility to keep quiet and let people learn on their own. So, to answer your question, really, gettin Kanyed is kinda like a privilege that way.

RM: Is that your version of an apology?

KW: I don’t know if you saw the first episode of Leno last night, but I was on that. They needed me on there. But, if you seen it you would know that my mama passed—

RM: Yo, Kanye. I’m really happy for you having survived your mother’s passing. I’m gonna let you finish. But, Obama lost both of his parents as an adult and he thinks you’re a jackass. Granted, the reporter never should have–

KW: I know. I know Obama. Like, personally.

RM: Did you also know that Nelson Mandela is both an orphan and non-asshole? Malcolm X lost his dad at a young age. There are plenty of examples.

KW: I’m sorry. I ain’t never heard none of they albums. They sound old too. If they was old and they shit was tight, I would have sampled them already.

RM: *more sarcasm* Annie was an orphan! Look at what she was able to accomplish. She got on a Jay-Z record and everything.

KW: *still not picking up on the sarcasm* True.

RM: You are aware that if I were an artist getting an award and you were looking to Kanye me, I’d have to slap you in the fucking mouth, right?

KW: That’s the whole ill thing about it. I fear no man. I’m aware of what might happen to me. But I don’t live confined by fear. The only thing I fear is failure. Sometimes I’m a little afraid people might not understand how my clothes really do match. But that’s really it.

RM: Interesting.

KW: Yeah. And sometimes the label tells me I can’t do some things. So I guess I fear them a little bit. I hate them niggas more than a Nazi. Like, can I be real with you for a minute?

RM: By all means.

KW: After “Jesus Walks” I came up with my first experimental type records. You know. I didn’t think “Jesus Walks” was gonna be all that well-received because it was talkin’ about God and all. I ain’t think people was gonna be ready for that.

RM: Even though Tyler Perry is a gazillionaire?

KW: *looking confused* I guess so. But then right after that I made “Jesus Walks Around My Basement In Flip-Flops Nodding to My Beats”, and the label told me they couldn’t do that.

RM: *sarcastically* They just didn’t see the vision.

KW: *still oblivious* Exactly! They didn’t see it. It would have been epic. *thinking* Maybe that’s who I should have signed with!

RM: Do you like fishsticks?

KW: Only if they’re organic.

RM: Who’s a greater awards show shit-starter, yourself or Ol’ Dirty Bastard?

KW: We’ll, he’s dead and I’m alive. So, that means my shit is timeless. So I would have to say me. And I don’t wanna feel like I shouldn’t say me because people say I shouldn’t say me.

RM: What’s your favorite curse word?

KW: You’re out.

    “gold Nintendo power glove”

    That reference was BRILLIANT… & strangely accurate.

    “Jesus Walks Around My Basement In Flip-Flops Nodding to My Beats”

    You’ze a fool for that one, Ron! Hilarious!

    “What’s your favorite curse word?”

    I could picture you asking that in a James Lipton voice. Again, Hilarious!

    Also, I thought that Kanye being oblivious to any & all sarcasm was spot on & of course, hilarious!

    Overall, classic post, from start to finish. Well done!

    Yo, Kanye. I’m really happy for you having survived your mother’s passing. I’m gonna let you finish. But, Obama lost both of his parents as an adult and he thinks you’re a jackass. Granted, the reporter never should have– Too funny!

    I really thought my man was gonna bust tears on Leno. He looked real weak that whole interview, more so than contrite.

    Like I said he picked the right people to “Kanye” cuz a real ass nigga would’ve put that moonman to work and he’d need another plate in his jaw.

    “Why can’t I be nominated for and win the female categories as well? That’s not even fair.”

    Hilarious. Sad thing is I can see him saying some sh*t like that. Classic post.

    • that nigga

    Man XXL needs to get this comment mess fixed. Like the 10th time Ive posted a comment that didnt get posted.

    ^^^^
    I know this was said in jest..but really, more people should be like this, that’s one thing I respect about Kanye West if he feels a certain way and cares enough about it, he has the balls to step right up and say so…If Taylor Swift had some Kanye in her(How old is that?….Old enough!), she woulda snatched the mike right back and said “No Fuck you Kanye, I love Beyonce, but this is My moment and My award” and then Kanye wouldn’t look like such a bully…Niggas be too scared to stand up and say shit unless it’s to a computer screen.

    ron ron has done it again no fishsticks my dude LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Silly Chilly Willy

    You gotta give Kanye credit for one thing, though. It’s undeniable.

    There is only one human being that can be more passionate about what he does than Kanye, and that’s a high DMX…

  • Detroit P

    If Obama had some Kanye in him, he woulda been got this healthcare plan passed

    • yoprince

      hell yea… with the public option!

  • Detroit P

    God sent Lucifer to hell for acting like Kanye

  • oskamadison

    We all know Kanye is a world-class asshole and was dead ass wrong and everything but there’s 3 things I’d like to throw out there:

    1. ODB, God bless, did essentially the same shit Kanye did but his invasion is celebrated as one of the funniest award show moments ever. The only difference I can think of is the fact that people looked at Dirty like that drunk uncle in the family, always good for a few laughs. ‘Ye is regarded as the world’s oldest brat (Lisa Raye’s sister can now sit down) and consistently pisses people off. Otherwise, same shit

    2. The Race Card (no matter where you go, there you are.) If ‘Ye would have interrupted, say, Keri Hilson’s speech, would anyone give anything even vaguely resembling a shit?

    3. I know this is off-topic but did ‘Lil Mama hit some of ‘Ye’s dust joint too? “Ladies and Gentleman…performing “Empire State of Mind” off his new Blueprint 3 album, please welcome, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys and…’Lil Mama??????”

    Good shit, Mex.

    If I didn’t know any better, I’d think you were the ghost writer for Kanye’s blog.

    “Kanye West: Yo, Ron. I’m really happy for you getting this blog and your new show and all. I’m gonna let you finish. But, Bossip had one of the greatest black weblogs of all time! One of the greatest black weblogs of all time!”

  • EvilD

    I’ve been wait for this blog since this dumb shit started. It’s the VMA’S, not the grammys. Who gives a fuck. If you give a fuck about who wins a VMA, this ain’t your site. Plus, the VMA’S are known for stupidity happening at random moments(remember when that guy from rage against the machine climbed the statue. They had to bring out a ladder. Kanye was wrong, but this shit is out of control.

    And why Jay have to bring his momma in to this bullshit. No shame.

    “So, to answer your question, really, gettin Kanyed is kinda like a privilege that way.”

    the sad thing is, i bet that nigga actually feels that way. he probably thought that he was doing that girl a favor by running up on stage and making himself look like an ass.

    “RM: Who’s a greater awards show shit-starter, yourself or Ol’ Dirty Bastard?

    KW: We’ll, he’s dead and I’m alive. So, that means my shit is timeless. So I would have to say me. And I don’t wanna feel like I shouldn’t say me because people say I shouldn’t say me.”

    odb, hands down. i don’t know, maybe it’s because odb did it first. but at least odb had the balls to do it to a man and not a teenaged girl. if that had been a dude kanye wouldn’t have done shit because he knew that he would have gotten the faggot knocked out of him.
