Kanye West went on a bizarre diatribe about Lenny Kravitz during a performance at Madison Square Garden Sunday night – not realizing that a cringing Kravitz was actually sitting there in the audience.
“We watched Hunger Games today, it was very inspiring. It was almost like a mimic of my exact life, I said [to Kim] ‘Baby we’d better be on that mood board when they are writing this (bleep)’.
“And I saw Lenny Kravitz. There wouldn’t be no song called ‘N****rs. in Paris’ without Lenny Kravitz, because he was the first n****r. in Paris..Black rock star, what is interesting to me, is that I have started hanging out with people in Paris. Lenny Kravitz has the best taste and the dopest crib in Paris, and I don’t know if you know this but he designs furniture…and he had been working on a clothing line for a long, long, long time.
“The designers would love it when Lenny showed up at their fashion show. ‘Hey Lenny promote us the best you can’. ‘Hey Kanye promote us the best you can’ …I mean any of you n*****s promote it the best you can. I said, ‘Wait a second, I gotta dream of doing a clothing line’. You know what they told me while I was in Paris, you know what the billionaries told me, when I told them about my dreams? They said Lenny Kravitz wanted the same, same thing. Like its a muther (bleep)ing joke. There wouldn’t be no Kanye West if it wasn’t for Lenny Kravitz. The only difference between me and Lenny Kravitz is I turn up on those n****rs, I don’t give a (bleep) about looking cool or being cool, and this is no disrespect to Lenny…nobody want to look like a fool.
