In an age where celebrities are media trained to within an inch of their lives, it’s refreshing when a celebrity says something that shocks even the person interviewing them.
Kanye West‘s latest interview on The Ellen Degeneres Show leftthe popular daytime TV host speechless after West went on an eight-minute rant talking about everything from news he is broke to his plans on how to ‘change the world’.
Reminiscent of Tom Cruise‘s infamous Oprah couch moment, 38-year-old West really cut loose. It all began with Degenres asking the rapper about that one time he asked Mark Zuckerberg for money on Twitter.
Mark, I am publicly asking you for help…

“I understand Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t use Twitter, even though I have had dinner with him and his wife and told them about how I wanted to help the world, and he said he’d help me, and blah, blah, blah,” West said.
“That’s how it feels though, it’s like the ‘Pursuit of Happyness,’ it’s like you’re trying to sell this bone density machine, you know in that movie…”
West then outlined his plan to ‘help’ people to Degeneres.
“I feel like if I had more resources. I could help more people. I have ideas that can make the human race’s existence within our 100 years better. Period. F*ck the paparazzi, whatever perception you have of me, starting with the truth, started with what everyone’s thinking, start there, put some dope s*it with it,” he said.
