Kanye West Continues His Ranting In London

He says the media paints him as a villain...
Billboard reports that during a concert at the Wireless Festival in Finsbury Park, London, Kanye West began ranting to the audience once again. If this sounds familiar, it's because he did the same thing on July 4 at the same event. Just like July 4, it was met with a mixed reaction. West performed three Drake songs ("Headlines", "We Made It" and "All Me") and his own songs "Black Skinhead", "Stronger," "Runaway," "New Slaves" and "Bound 2". It was a twenty-song set.
He said: "The media paint me as if I'm some sort of villain or like I've got a bad bone in my body. I'm really more of a porcupine or a blowfish. And the photos they always take is when that blowfish is blown up or when that porcupine is defending itself from the lies and the control and the manipulation that you deal with if you are an artist. Sometimes my only response is to go 'Aaargh!'"
He also talked about the media invading his life, comparing himself to Britney Spears and comparing being photographed by the paparazzi to rape.
He added: "Everybody out here likes sex, right? Sex is great with you and your partner. But if one of the people don't want to do that, what is that called? That's called rape. That's called violation."
