Kanye West Tells Ellen He Does ‘Absolutely Not’ Regret a Single Tweet (Video)

”I’m sorry, daytime television, I’m sorry for the realness,“ rapper says after deep dive into his aspirations for ”dope shit“

Kanye West appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres” show on Thursday and he sure had plenty to say.

DeGeneres asked about some of his tweets, which included asking Mark Zuckerberg to invest in West’s businesses, and if he regretted any of them. “Absolutely not,” he replied.

West then launched into an impassioned speech about his role in society. “I feel if I had more resources, I could help more people,” he said. “I have ideas that can make the human race existence within our hundred years, better. Period. F–k the paparazzi and whatever perception of me. Starting with the truth. Start there. Put some dope shit with it.”

DeGeneres asked West to elaborate on the “dope shit,” which he was happy to do. “I care about people. I care. My dad lived in homeless shelters less than five years ago,” he said. “He’s a psych major. My mom was the first black female chair of the english department at Chicago State University. I was raised to do something, to make a difference.”

West went on to state that there was a time when Michael Jackson couldn’t get his music on MTV because he was “too urban.”

“So I literally have to be Michael Jackson of apparel in order to break open the doors for everyone who will come after I’m gone,” he said. “After I’m dead. After they call me ‘Wacko Kanye.’ Isn’t that so funny? That people point fingers at the people who have influenced us the most? They talk the most shit about the people who cared the most?”

“I’m sorry, daytime television, I’m sorry for the realness,” he concluded.
