Kanye West: 'People Look at Me Like I'm Hitler'
In an incident unbefitting of a festival named 'Big Chill,' Kanye West delivered a long, winding rant and claimed that people's perception of him rivals that of Adolf Hitler during a headlining set at the U.K. music fest on Saturday (Aug. 6).
After apologizing to the crowd for starting his set late, West delved into the reasons why he remains misunderstood, all over a piano loop. "I walk through the hotel and I walk down the street, and people look at me like I'm f--king insane, like I'm Hitler," he says beginning at the 6:40 mark. "One day the light will shine through and one day people will understand everything I ever did, ever said, was to throw myself on the blade for the sake of someone else."
