Does everyone remember the film ‘I’m Still Here’ that was a ‘documentary’ by Joaquin Phoenix and Casey Affleck about celebrities and their relationship between the consumer, publicity, social media and celebrities themselves. Everyone including David Letterman thought Joaquin Phoenix was having a personal break down after announcing his retirement from acting and declaring a rap, hip hop career. Then suddenly after the film was released Joaquin Phoenix just smiled, shaved got a hair cut and went back on David Letterman explaining the purpose of his erratic behaviour. He wanted to reveal that being a celebrity can become an alien like civilisation.
Which brings us to our next UFO sighting, Yeezus also known as Kanye West who shows similar characteristics to Joaquin Phoenix in ‘I’m Still Here’. So by Kanye’s storyline as Yeezus, when shall the big reveal come?
You cant tell me these statements and quotes by the one and only Mr Kanye West are the same of a regular Joe, who walks the dog, runs out for milk and mows the lawn.
The Best Yeezus Quotes:
"OK, everyone please be completely quiet, because I can literally hear a whisper, and it’ll throw off my stream of consciousness, and when I get my stream of consciousness going that’s when I give the best, illest quotes. Literally, a whisper can throw it off."
"What I notice about creatives is that, and one of the reasons why I get into trouble, is, not only do I want to design video games, or make music, or ride bikes, I think one of the most important things to my ability to create so much in the past 30 years is my desire to play sports. I approach creativity like a sport, where if I have a drawing I react just like a jock: LOOK AT THE FUCKING DRAWING RIGHT THERE YEAH!"
"People say it takes a village to raise a child. People ask me how my daughter is doing. She's only doing good if your daughter's doing good. We're all one family. We have the ability to approach our race like ants, or we have the ability to approach our race like crabs."
"There’s a Bible saying, ‘No weapon formed against me shall prosper’. Recently I’ve been doing interviews and I’ve had to go back to this verse because I don’t think there’s a living celebrity with more weapons formed against them, but I also don’t think there’s one more prosperous. So what weapons have prospered? The smoke and mirrors of other opinions."
"My goal, if I was going to do art, fine art, would have been to become Picasso or greater. That always sounds so funny to people, comparing yourself to someone who has done so much, and that’s a mentality that suppresses humanity."
"If you read books - which I don't, none at all - about how to become a billionaire, they always say, ‘You learn more from your mistakes.’ So if you learn from your mistakes, then I'm a fucking genius."
"I am God's vessel. But my greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live."
"I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means. I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period. By a long jump. I honestly feel that because Steve has passed, you know, it’s like when Biggie passed and Jay Z was allowed to become Jay Z."
"People ask me a lot about my drive. I think it comes from, like, having a sexual addiction at a really young age. Look at the drive that people have to get sex - to dress like this and get a haircut and be in the club in the freezing cold at 3 A.M., the places they go to pick up a girl. If you can focus the energy into something valuable, put that into work ethic."
True love is hard to find so imagine hearing any of these five Kanye quotes on a first date:
“I am so credible and so influential and so relevant that I will change things."
"I feel like I’m too busy writing history to read it."
"Fur pillows are hard to actually sleep on."
"I believe that bad taste is vulgar. It's like cursing. I think the world can be saved through design, because what is the most distasteful thing someone can do? Kill someone. So, good taste is the opposite of that."
"The Matrix is like the Bible of the post-information age. When the hundred guys come at Neo, those are opinions, that's perception, that's tradition. Attacking people from every which angle possible. If you have a focus wide and master sense is like Laurence Fishburne and you have a squad behind you, you literally can put the world in slow motion."
Yes ladies and gentlemen these are the words from one of the most influential people of 2015 by TIME magazine.
