(TMZ)   Kanye West: "I am the smartest f*cking celebrity you've ever dealt with." Given that he said this to a paparazzo he was beating up, however, undermines his ludicrous claim   (tmz.com) divider line 72

Jeez that guy is dumb. At least he doesn't do anything important. I'd hate if he actually mattered for some reason and was that stupid.
 
2014-08-06 10:56:54 AM  
You're not helping, Kanye.

And I mean that just in general.
 
2014-08-06 10:57:36 AM  
I think he confused the word narcissistic with smartest.

How about solving some differential equations?

The smartest celebrity? Not quite the highest bar to jump over, but okay.

I know this is damning with faint praise, and will open me up to ridicule, but I do think he's smarter than people presume.

I hate pop music.

Enough with the Kanye West. Let this egocentric bag of douche fade into the obscurity he so richly deserves.

I'm inclined to agree, slightly. I think he's in-tune with what's popular and what will make him a shiat-ton of money.

Beyond that, I think most of what he does in the public eye is honing his trolling skills.

According to some economic theories this man is more valuable to society than the 60 best heart surgeons in the country.

Kanye West doesn't care about dumb people.
 
2014-08-06 11:25:21 AM  
Anyone else amused that he compares the 60's civil rights movement to being a celebrity in 2014?

I mean I don't recall paparazzi sending dogs to attack him and his wife. The fact that Kanye doesn't seem to get is that your given profession makes you known to the masses, so people being in your face comes with the territory. You can't expect millions of people to attend your concerts and then when you're walking down the street to be left alone.

Kayne: And my boy, Carny, he always had my back. When people make fun of me, ol' Carny would say "hey he's not as dumb as you think!" and that means something.
 
2014-08-06 11:34:38 AM  
To be fair, paparazzi do need a good beatin' once in a while.
 
2014-08-06 11:34:39 AM  
If he was saying this while beating a scumbag photo-stalker, I am having trouble figuring out how to react to this one.  Sure it is a Ludachris statement, but he was performing a public service at the time.

I'll give him a pass on this one.
 
2014-08-06 11:39:15 AM  
He married a Kardashian. This automatically DQs him.

If I was a cop in LA and a celebrity was beating up a "paparazzi" I'd be all "No...stop...don't do that." in a very Willy Wonka-ish tone.
 
2014-08-06 11:49:16 AM  
So he beat a scumbag photographer. Hard to root for anyone here, kinda makes you wish for a runaway car or a stray lighting bolt.

He knows what to do.

If Kanye were as smart as he thinks he is, he wouldn't have to keep saying how smart he is.

That's racist.

In a game of losers there are no winners.

I would love to see him go off on a paparazzo who happens to know Krav Maga.

This is not getting enough attention because it is the craziest shiat ever.

GibbyTheMole: Enough with the Kanye West. Let this egocentric bag of douche fade into the obscurity he so richly deserves.


I doubt that will ever happen.  He's pretty much written himself into the lexicons of pop music at this point.  Everything he says is lapped up by his fan base, especially statements like he made here.

He can put out completely garbage albums and they are heralded as masterpieces.

I'm sure he plans to stay in the limelight for a long time.  And really, all he has to do to make headlines is open his mouth.

These statements alone will probably put him at the top of web searches for the rest of the week.
 
2014-08-06 12:16:41 PM  
"At that point Kanye interrupts, "You have to ask for a hall pass. You can't just say the 'n' word around me." adding, "It offends me because you're a white person saying 'ni**a.'"

that's racist.

By the same token the Big Mac is the best hamburger in the world.

Seriously though: Kanye West has mental issues. I'm talking about some sort of mania or similar disorder.

/I should know, I have my Fark psychology degree.
 
2014-08-06 12:33:48 PM  
There is no difference between Kanye West and the paparazzi.  They're both selling rubbish.
 
2014-08-06 12:47:16 PM  
Because of Californias communal property laws the paparazzo can take some of Kims money too in the civil suit right?


Or am I hoping too much?

He's right.  The paparazzo in question had up to now only covered the Special Olympics and the US Congress.
 
2014-08-06 01:01:18 PM  
his anger and aggression are a disguise for his lack of substance or talent...running on fumes to stay relevant
 
2014-08-06 01:09:18 PM  
The headline immediately made me think of Wolf Blitzer on Celebrity Jeapordy.
 
2014-08-06 01:11:03 PM  
I truly feel he grew up with the worst self esteem ever, and everything he does it is to overcompensate.

He flunked out of college, so he brags he's a proud college dropout.
He can't read very well, so he brags that he's not into books.
He fears he's ordinary, so he brags that he's the greatest genius ever.
He leaves a black girl to marry a white girl golddigger without a prenup, exactly what he warned people against doing in that one song.

Its very telling... Whatever comes out of his mouth, you can tell there is a part of his brain that probably fears that the exact opposite of that is the truth.

I really don't think he is trolling, I think he believes this shiat.
 
2014-08-06 01:17:30 PM  
I figure that he has an IQ of about 80 or so.
 
2014-08-06 01:20:34 PM  
God damn, I love Kanye

I had an interesting conversation about ideas, truth, lies/fiction ... The gist of it was that ideas are real, but truth/fiction _can_ be irrelevant.  For example, unicorns don't exist. But you know what a unicorn is, can draw or describe one.  The idea is real, and the effects of that idea are felt, ie books, shirts, etc about unicorns create wealth for someone.  The fact unicorns do not actually exist is irrelevant.

It might not matter if Kanye is smart or not, other people think he is. The idea is out there.

In other words, fake it till you make it.

Before or after marrying a Kardashian?

She couldn't have sucked any of his brains out.
I saw that tape with her and Ray J. She is not that skilled.

That a long-ass way to say "Kanye West is a narcissistic douchebag."
 
2014-08-06 02:13:03 PM  
He should run for politics and fix this country instead of making music if he claims to be so smart.

I sort of igured that marrying into that family automatically had a negative impact to IQ, like Bruce found out.

You're right. He gets a Dilly Bar.
