Kanye West's BBC Radio 1 Interview: 'I'm The No. 1 Rock Star On The Planet'
"People are going to look at this interview and say, 'Hey, I understand what he's talking about,' West says in a newly released clip from the interview. "People are going to look at this interview and say, 'I don't like Kanye. He looks mad; I don't like his teeth.' We the real rock stars, and I'm the biggest of all of them."

I don't consider what he does even music. I am old, maybe that is why. If his shit is rock, and he is it's number one star, may I announce the death of Rock and Roll.

No one cares what you think about anything R2.

Gurl you ain't had a #1 for a minute...sit yo' ass ALL the way down and go back to that WhoreTrashian Klan you're clinging to. No rock star would touch that horrible family.

Janis Joplin is still a bigger rock star and she's:
1) a girl

How nice it must be to live a life totally unencumbered by any shred of reality.

He makes challenging and often very good music, moves a lot of product (yes I know his sales have slumped some), is ultra-famous and is divisive. That's pretty much the definition of a rock star.
"Yeezus" rocks. It belongs on a shelf with the best work of artists like Radiohead, Beck, Prince and Bjork.

Has anyone ever ascertained if Kanye has a dictionary? I think maybe he doesn't have a clear understanding of what those words mean.

Kanye, I can say with 99% certainty, read "The Secret" when he was a struggling and broke producer and took it to the extreme, where there is no reality other than his own. He does love dating little white twinks.

I like him, but I don't think you have to like him to think he's basically right about this. Axl Rose was the #1 rock star on the planet at one point.

As good as Yeezus (sp?) might be, his single chart placings of the last couple of years suggest otherwise.

Kanye, you're not the number one anything except douchebag.

Bobby Brown said the same thing a few years ago.

I knew Whitney was on drugs when she referred to Bobby Brown as (paraphrasing) "The King Of R&B" on an award show in the LATE 90s.

Kanye West always acts like he's high on coke. Talking about delusional.

Who are the idiots who keep buying this assholes' "music"? If everyone stopped, his ego would go straight down. And since when is he "rock"??? LOL!

R8 is correct. Most of the rest of you sound like out-of-touch fossils.

I wish I could see his asshole. I bet it's beautiful.

R21, yeah he's a pop star, we all know that. But he's saying that he's "the number 1 rock star on the planet". That's where I raise my eyebrows and say no you're not. I wonder if he realizes what a joke to many people his marriage to a Kardashian is? Or does he truly believe that any fame is good.
(Are they even married? Don't care that much and can't bother to google.)

Last night they re-ran his bizarre SNL appearance. Needless to say I never heard the song again after that performance.
Here are the rankings on Amazon.com for his new cd. Correct me if I am wrong, but don't those numbers also include digital downloads besides the physical product?
Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #326 in Music (See Top 100 in Music) #5 in Music > Rap & Hip-Hop > Pop Rap

They should have asked him if he likes fishsticks.

I don't like Kanye's personality but Yeezus is great. If Trent Reznor or Marilyn Manson made a hip hop record this is what it would sound like. I give him props for always stepping out of the box and trying something new. Unlike his friend JayZzzzzz.

R28, 99 percent of the Kanye haters here have never listened to more than one song.
