Yeezus Doesn’t Want To Be Bothered With Questions On The Street
By Sowmya Krishnamurthy
Kanye West is not feeling very social. Yesterday, the producer/rapper was walking around NYC with his entourage, when a friendly photographer approached him to say, “What’s good, Kanye?” and TMZ caught video of the exchange of words.
Ye wasn’t really in the mood, responding, “DON’T ASK ME QUESTIONS, MAN!” The photographer then wished Kanye a happy belated birthday to which the “Mercy” rapper shouted back, “SHUT UP! DON’T EVER TALK!”
Kanye has not been a fan of the paparazzi for some time. Just last month, while trying to ward off the paps in LA with Kim Kardashian, Ye literally walked into a street sign. According to TMZ, Kanye was furious after the incident.
But Ye was in a more festive mood when he recently celebrated his 36th birthday in NYC with a bevy of celeb friends like Jay-Z, Nas and Beyonce. Kanye’s baby mama-to-be, Kim Kardashian, was not in attendance, because she is not allowed to fly this late in her pregnancy. Though she wasn’t there, Kim sent her well wishes via social media, writing on Instagram, “Happy Birthday to my best friend, the <3 of my life.”
Last night, Ye previewed Yeezus for a full house at NYC’s Milk Studios. “I have an idea on how to sell more music — it’s called make better music,” West said to the crowd, which included Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Timbaland and New York Knicks star Tyson Chandler.
