“Everyone out there–in TV world, real world, whatever world you stay in– needs to know that I’ve never done a publicity stunt in my life. Anytime I went up and spoke my mind, whether it put my career in jeopardy or whatever someone so called said, it was always what I thought was the truth. Whether I’m reading through a teleprompter or whatever I felt emotionally. I don’t follow rules of normal celebrity or what their publicist tells them to say. I don’t don publicity stunts period, so don’t ever think that.”
A hundred years from now, people will say that Wednesday, October 9th, 2013 was the day that our lord and savior came down to reveal his eternal truths to the masses, on a late night television program. Well, they might not go that far, they might not even remember what television is. However, for those of us that were alive to witness the greatness that is a Kanye West interview, we will probably talk about his appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel for the next couple of weeks.
When his BBC interview surfaced, the internet went absolutely crazy. If you say that you were twitter timeline wasn’t filled with obscure West quotes, you are lying to us and yourself, and we don’t do that…ever. Now that he has so graciously gave us a repeat performance last night, you can expect at least a dozen or so Kanye West inspired Facebook Statuses. You can expect the Chicago emcee to drop memorable lines during an interview with as much certainty as you can assume that 2 Chainz will have cleverly hilarious one-liners on his songs.
So to make sure you don’t feel out of the loop as your friends post line after line of humorous truth from West, we have collected some of the most memorable lines from his late night appearance. Be sure to quote your source.
