Kanye West really doesn’t give a sh*t. At all. He’s solidified his rock star status by throwing temper tantrums, telling little white girls to shut up, belittling the president and living the life that you only dream of. Straight disrespectful.

So as Ye’ prepares to release his new album Yeezus, his performance on “SNL” solidifies that his music is a direct reflection of his lifestyle. From Aventadors, to Kim K and the Met Gala, this man takes no days off from being the center of attention.

After a long string of clothing lines, sold out tours and movie premieres at the Cannes Film Festival, the life of a pop icon is never easy. The only thing for certain is that he’ll make you wish you had the balls to believe in yourself as much as he does.

With his first born on the way and his career at an all time high, West will continue to push his superstar status with the same level of unpredictability that makes him an icon. Expect the unexpected from Kanye at all times.

When he stormed out of the 2004 American Music Awards after not winning ‘Best New Artist’

 

Kanye didn’t take losing Best Artist of the Year too lightly at the AMAs in 2004. He stormed right out in the middle of the ceremony and was quoted saying:

“I felt like I was definitely robbed… I was the best new artist this year.”

When he claimed AIDS is a man-made disease

 

During the 2005 Live 8 concert tour, which raised awareness for poverty and AIDS, Kanye stole the show when claimed that AIDS was a “man-made disease” that was ”placed in Africa just like crack was placed in the black community to break up the Black Panthers.”


When he went crazy behind the scenes at the 2007 VMAs

 

After being forced to perform his hit single “Stronger,” he vowed never to come to MTV again.

“**** MTV. Y’all heard what the **** I said… Five nominations. I ****in’ lost to Black Eyed Peas last year, man. I’m never coming to MTV. Ya’ll find Britney. Get Britney. Get a real ****in’ artist. Get Britney Spears. I ain’t ****in’ with this pop ****. God****. Give me a ****in’ chance. Give a black man a chance. I’m tryin’ hard. I got the ****in’ #1 record. I’m tryin’ man. I don’t even get a ****in’ chance. They don’t want a ****in’ black man in that position.”


When he told Entertainment Weekly never to come to his show again

 

After Entertainment Weekly stamped Kanye West’s Glow In The Dark Tour with a B+, they faced the music when he lashed out on the magazine. He wrote this on his blog.

“What’s a B+ mean?” West demanded on his blog. “I’m an extremist, its either pass or fail! A+ or F-! You know what, f___ you and the whole f___ing staff!”

When he asked Rihanna what it’s like to turn girls lesbian during an interview

Rihanna: Is that a real question?

Kanye: Yeah.
