Another day, another amazing Kanye West Twitter rant. While he didn’t start any new feuds, he let us in on what he was thinking, including the fact that sometimes he’s an “a**shole” to simply make a point – especially when it comes to of all things, punctuation.
Kanye West, 38, never fails to entertain us when he goes on one of his stream of consciousness Twitter rants, and boy did he let off some steam on March 22. While he was actually in a pretty good mood, he admitted he sometimes can’t help himself when it comes to being an “a**hole” and this time it was over using exclamation points.
While waxing poetic about the “truth,” love, freedom, artistry and other things, he also let us in on the fact that he cannot stand the use of exclamation points. We figure with the amount of rage he sometimes lets loose in his more epic Twitter rants, that would be his favorite punctuation mark, but no. It turns out he loathes them – though he doesn’t hate them because he can’t stand the word “hate” either! Oh such nuggets of Yeezy’s mind that get revealed every time he goes off on social media!
“On another note, I strongly dislike suit jackets. I used the word dislike because I hate the word hate,” the rapper noted, then said “And I used a period because contrary to popular belief I strongly dislike exclamation points!” And then he decided to be a total contrarion by announcing “I used an exclamation just to be an a**hole and also to make a point! LOL.” Hah, at least Kanye is able to laugh about that. Stream Kanye’s music, completely unlimited and ad-free RIGHT HERE.
His hour long rant started off normal enough, discussing his New York pop up store’s success, saying “They called me crazy and pointed fingers. But there is no other brand that could sell 1 million dollars of clothing in 2 days from 1 location!!!” (and yes, he used those hated exclamation points in that post).
But then things quickly devolved into one of his all over the place rants. Yeezy admitted that he’s human after all, and is prone to messing up sometimes. “Everyone has made mistakes. I just make them in public,” he revealed just before telling his followers “I love you guys.” He also bizarrely praised the paparazzi while being grateful for having a social media platform by commenting “thank God for paps thank God for social media.” Oh Kanye, never change.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think about Kanye’s dislike of exclamation points? Just another odd revelation from him?
