Kanye West Accuses Grammys of Racism and Praises Himself in Twitter Outburst: 'I Love Me So Much Right Now'
Kanye West is the Energizer bunny of Twitter – he keeps going and going.
In what has become a regular occurrence, the 38-year-old rapper shared his thoughts via the social media network on Tuesday. This time, West shut down concerns about his mental health – “I’m not crazy. I’m free.” – and laid accusations of racism against organizers of the Grammy Awards – “You like your black people a certain way also.”
But then he asked Neil Portnow, president of the Recording Academy, to “please reach out as soon as possible so we can make the Grammys culturally relevant again.”
Near the end of his rant, West explained that he appreciated himself: “I’m not even gon lie to you. I love me so much right now,” he wrote.
The comments come one day after West addressed his renewed feud with Taylor Swift in the wake of her fiery speech at the Grammys and response to his new song “Famous,” in which the rapper takes credit for her fame.
“She not cool no more,” West said on stage at 1Oak in Los Angeles. “She had two seconds to be cool, and she f—ed it up.”
