Kanye West Slams Paps
In typical style the rapper posts a long ranting blog on his website after last weeks arrest
Kanye West has hit back at the paparazzi after he was arrested in Newcastle for allegedly assaulting one of them.
The rapper was arrested briefly after a gig up north on Thursday. A photographer alleged that he suffered cuts and bruises after the rapper pushed a camera into his face.
Now the Love Lockdown singer has written on his blog: I PUT MY HAND UP TO THE CAMERA IN SELF DEFENSE! HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED...WHEN I LEFT THE CLUB, I WAS ENCOUNTERED BY A THIRSTY PAPARAZZI AS USUAL.
HE FELT HE HAD MORE RIGHTS TO MY SPACE THAN ME, SO I PUT MY HAND UP TO PREVENT HIM FROM TAKING MY IMAGE. I DIDN'T ASSAULT HIM BUT MERELY PUTTING MY HAND UP TO COVER HIS LENS.
After referencing the death of Princess Diana West- who releases his new album 808s & Heartbreak on November 24- also wrote:
REGARDLESS OF HOW MUCH LIGHT I PUT OUT, THERE ARE PEOPLE WORKING JUST AS HARD TO ONLY DELIVER DARKNESS.
I AM NOT A CELEBRITY. I'M A NORMAL PERSON THAT'S JUST FAMOUS. I REFUSE TO SNEAK IN AND OUT OF BACK DOORS AND KITCHENS OF HOTELS ETC....
