Kanye West Reveals Why He’s So Blunt: ‘I Think I’m Just Lazy’
Kanye West hit the stage for the Life Is Beautiful festival in Las Vegas on Friday night (Oct. 24), and did not neglect to include his now-signature onstage speech. Differing from previous rants in which the rapper blasted the media and fashion designers, Yeezy reflected on the controversy he stirs up in his attempts to simply speak his mind.
“When I express my opinion, I always get in trouble for something,” he said. “And it just makes me feel like they don’t want nobody to express no real motherfuckin’ opinion. This is very motherfuckin’ awkward to me.”
Explaining his reasoning behind the honesty that always seems to get him caught up, West chalked his bluntness up to being too lazy to lie. And his logic is actually understandable.
“I think I’m just lazy. ‘Cause when you have to put on some type of facade and make up a bunch of lies and shit, you gotta think about that shit so hard and you gotta remember what the lie was,” he explained “And I just be like, ‘Fuck it, I’m a just go ahead and tell the truth. ‘Cause I don’t wanna have to remember no shit.’”
West also discusses his contribution to music via Jay Z, Big Sean, Pusha T, as well as sends a shoutout to North West and Kim Kardashian. Watch his latest stream of consciousness in the video above.
