Kanye West is gonna let President Obama finish, but not before he tells him something about corporations. While performing at the Hammersmith Apollo over the weekend in London, West said, “I don’t give a f— what the president’s got to say.” He added that his diatribe against Taylor Swift winning best music video at the 2009 Video Music Awards was perfectly justified: “everybody thought I was so crazy. Am I the only one who is not crazy?”
West, who is worth a fortune and enjoys wearing expensive jewelry to Occupy rallies, added, “I hate business people. Since when was making art about getting rich?” The local food banks await West’s beneficence.
