Kanye West lashes out at Justin Timberlake

28 February 2013, 07:41

Los Angeles - Kanye West compared himself to Picasso and Walt Disney in a foul mouthed rant.

The All of the Lights hitmaker - who caused waves by slamming Justin Timberlake and Taylor Swift at his gig in London over the weekend - launched into another expletive-laden diatribe on Tuesday evening, referring to himself as a musical equivalent to creative geniuses like Picasso, Walt Disney and Steve Jobs.

The 35-year-old rapper told the crowd at his Paris concert: "There's no motherfucking awards or sponsorships or none of that shit that can stop the dedication to bringing y'all that real shit.

"No matter how they try to control you, or the motherfucker next to you tries to peer pressure you, you can do what you motherfucking want. I am Picasso. I'm Walt Disney, I'm Steve Jobs."

'Evened out and fair'

Kanye hit out at Justin Timberlake, who collaborated with Jay-Z on the track, during his intimate gig at London's Hammersmith Apollo on Saturday.

He told the crowd: "I've got love for Hov but I'm not down with that suit and tie shit."

The star also lashed out at the Grammy Awards and Taylor Swift, who he infamously interrupted at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

He ranted: "Taylor Swift beat Beyonce at the Grammys? Beyonce be dancing in heels and shit. We need the music business to be evened out and fair. I've never won a Grammy against a white artist. I'm motherfucking Kanye West, we can create a human utopia if we try."
