Kanye West Just Went On The Most Kanye West Rant Ever

'I have to be Michael Jackson of apparel.'

Ye is alive.
Ye is alive.

Kanye West just went on a six-and-a-half-minute rant on the Ellen DeGeneres show and it's every bit as awesome as it sounds.

DeGeneres made the mistake (or a very clever and calculated move, depending on how you look at it) to ask West about his 'ideas'. The result is some of Kanye's best work. And this reporter is a fan of 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy'.

He doesn't look at DeGeneres once during the whole thing. Probably because her face looks like this the entire time:

Some of the best bits outlined below for your convenience. But we have to place extreme emphasis on the some, because there's far too much gold.

On not regretting a single tweet, including this one:

DeGeneres: You don't go 'maybe I should have thought about that a bit longer'?

West: Nope, what's the point in thinking?

Well, there you have it. Kanye West doesn't believe in thinking. Explains a bit.

On being an ideas man:

"Picasso is dead. Steve Jobs is dead. Walt Disney is dead. Name somebody living that you can name in the same breath as them."

"I feel that I can make a difference while I'm here. I feel that I can make things better through my skill set. I'm an artist, and I feel that I can make things better through my skill set. I'm a artist."

On who he wants to work with next (since Zuckerberg didn't reply):

"I called the head of Payless [ShoeSource]. I'm like, 'I want to work with you. I want to take all this information that I've learned from sitting at all these fashion shows and knocking on all these doors and buying all these expensive clothes and I want to take away bullying.' "

To be honest, there are too many gems. You need to clear your schedule for eight minutes, do yourselves a favour and watch it.

Sorry for the realness.
