Oh boy, you just know some classic statements are gonna be made during this interview. We already know that Kanye kept it gangsta and didn’t back down from his Bush comments (which I would hope he wouldn’t), but who knows what egomaniacal statements this guy is gonna utter with a straight face. The reason for the interview is Kanye has been selected by Walters as one 2005’s Most Fascinating People.
From the interview:
Barbara Walters: “During a telethon for Hurricane Katrina, Kanye caused a storm of his own.”
Kanye West on the telethon: “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.”
Walters to West: “Do you think what you said then you still feel today?”
West: “I spoke from, I spoke from my heart, and I stand by my statement.”
This should be interesting. I hear Barbara also spits a freestyle and works the boards in the studio with Kanyeezy.
