When will Kanye learn to keep his big trap shut? Apparently somewhere between "not anytime soon" and "never," if recent comments are any indication.
"I walk through the hotel and I walk down the street, and people look at me like I'm fucking insane, like I'm Hitler," he said onstage at the Big Chill music fest in England this weekend. "One day the light will shine through and one day people will understand everything I ever did." He followed that up with an apology for arriving half an hour late, explaining that he needed to ensure his performance was great, just like this guy: "Michael Jordan changed so much in basketball, he took his power to make a difference. It's so much shit going on in music right now and somebody has to make a fucking difference."
Oh, and in case you've been living under a hermetically sealed, soundproof rock for the past six months, Kanye has a new album with Jay-Z, Watch The Throne, came out today, which has already spawned a list of rules on Twitter for proper listening technique (@RobMarkamn: "#WTTRules No. 1: The album has to be out a FULL 5 DAYS before any person, publication or Online outfit declare it 'Classic.'").
