He has a high opinion of himself...
During an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live (via Zap2It), Kanye West explained why he calls himself a genius, showing that he thinks a lot of himself. Here are highlights:
On if the Kimmel feud was a publicity stunt: "Yeah, I mean everyone out there in the TV world, real world, whatever world you stay in, needs to know I've never done a publicity stunt in my life. Anytime I went up and spoke my mind and put my career in jeopardy or whatever someone so-called said, it was what I thought was the truth without reading through a teleprompter or whatever...I don't follow normal rules of celebrity or what their publicist tells them to say, so I don't do publicity stunts period. So don't ever think that."
On why he snapped at Kimmel on Twitter: "All I care about is my family. I care about protecting my girl, protecting my baby, and protecting my ideas and my dreams. And that's the reason I went so crazy."
On calling himself a genius: "I'm totally weird and I'm totally honest and I'm totally inappropriate at times. And the thing is, if I didn't say I was a genius, I would just be lying to you and to myself."
On Kim Kardashian getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame: "I want to shout out to stars of the Walk of Fame real quickly cuz they said something about they're not going to put my girl on the walk of fame because, you know, she's a reality star. It's like people are so, so dated...There's no way that Kim Kardashian shouldn't have a star on the Walk of Fame."
