Kayne West's current European tour just keeps on giving, doesn't it? Having previously used the stage as a sort of soapbox to aim shots at Justin Timberlake and Beyonce in London, to revealing plans for a new album in two months at Paris show earlier this week, his latest brain fart saw him compare himself to renowned artist Pablo Picasso, Apple computers guru Steve Jobs and visionary animator Walt Disney. Riiiiiight.
Speaking to the crowd in Paris during a break between songs, West said: "There's no mother--king awards or sponsorships or none of that shit that can stop the dedication to bringing y'all that real shit.
No matter how they try to control you, or the mother--ker next to you tries to peer pressure you, you can do what you mother--king want. I am Picasso. I'm Walt Disney. I'm Steve Jobs.
Is he Spartacus too?
We realise West is trying to be motivational here - and kudos to him for doing so - but it's sometimes difficult to get to his message beneath so many layers of egotism.
