Anyone who witnessed Kanye West and Taylor Swift’s first encounter on the MTV VMAs in 2009 had this going through their head: “Who the hell does this guy think he is?”. While accepting the award for Best Female Video, West went on stage, rudely interrupted Swift’s speech, and without missing a beat stressed his own opinion that Beyonce had the best video. Let’s face it, the guy has an insane ego.
West continues to have a steady stream of controversial quotes shoot out of his mouth like water gushing from a polluted and insulting water fall. Who does he think he is? Well, read on, because we found a whole bunch of Kanye aphorisms that might lend an explanation, but will more likely leave you with more questions. And yes, he actually said all of these.
