So, here's a happy Kanye, wandering through an airport with a gaggle of photographers shouting questions at him. There's one guy in particular who's very keen on getting a soundbite about Taylor Swift. When initially asked if he wanted to comment on Swift, Kanye says a flat out "No", instead preferring to address his claims that he's $53million in debt. By way of clarification, he says he's spent in the region of $53million on making himself the artist he is today. And, in a perfect world, he'd like people with money to fund "dope" artists.
As for the guy who keeps asking about Taylor Swift, instead of getting ranted at, a very calm Kanye said he wants "the best for that person... but it’s people going through real issues out here. It’s people that’s out of work. It’s people that’s in debt that can’t make it out of the debt. There’s people in debt that don’t have a shoe. There’s people that’s in debt that don’t have a hit album out also. The media tries to make this ongoing story and everything for hits or whatever. I don’t think people care about me or her in that way. People care about they families, they kids. If you like my music listen to it. If you like her music, listen to it."
When asked about Taylor again, he smiles saying "I think I kind've covered that subject already", before asking the dude what he's dog's name is. Then he suggests making a pair of "dog Yeezy's" for "Jethro."
All in all, this Kanye, is a million miles away from this Kanye.
