Following 2005’s devastating Hurricane Katrina, Kanye was so moved that he went on TV to do his best impression of a child in a Geography class busting for a wee. After appealing for people to donate money to help those in dire need, he said: “George Bush doesn’t care about black people”
In 2009, Taylor Swift won the MTV VMA award for the best female video. But Kanye West disagreed with the choice of winner, convinced that BFF Beyonce should have won. We all agreed, tbh – how FANTASTIC is Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)? But Kanye went too far, storming the stage and interrupting Taylor’s acceptance speech. It was so cringe, President Obama called Kanye a “jackass”.
This wasn’t, in fact, the first time he’d done something like this – he also crashed the stage when Justice won the award for best video at the European VMAs in 2006, launching into a foul-mouthed tirade, saying “If I don’t win, the award show loses credibility”
A lot of people do strange things for fashion photographer Terry Richardson e.g. dress up as him or get entirely naked. But when Kanye West and then-girlfriend Amber Rose posed for him, Kanye ended up licking Amber’s head. Ewwww.
Accepting an award at a civil rights event, Kanye West backed up the comments he’d made in a song insisting that AIDS was planned for black people could suffer. Adding that the same thing happened with crack cocaine in the 80s, he said: “AIDS was placed in Africa just like crack was placed in the black community to break up the Black Panthers." Hmm…
We all know that pop stars as popular as Kanye also get their fair share of haters, and he’s probably due a few more after some of the mistakes he’s made.
But we really don’t think that he’s as bad as Hitler. He disagrees, though, as he once told a UK audience at one of his gigs: “I walk through the hotel and I walk down the street, and people look at me like I'm f**king insane ... like I'm Hitler"
Kanye West got the bottom set of his teeth replaced with diamonds and gold. Just because. Almost cool if it didn’t look like he had a woman’s bag in his mouth. Debuting them on Ellen Degeneres’s talk show, he giggled: “'I guess there's just certain things that rock stars are supposed to do”
Dating Kim Kardashian isn’t exactly the strangest thing he’s done – they almost seem cute together. But he’s been a bit of a douche to her, being very indiscreet. For example, he tweeted: “I just f***ed Kim so hard” and according to TMZ, he used to watch her sex tape while he was with his exes. TMI!
