Kanye West is a well-known ranter, and it appears the occasional free-thinking has worked in his favour. His “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” spontaneity was the talk of the town, as was his verbal assault on Taylor Swift.

Mr. West is back, though, and his ramblings went on for eight whole minutes at the Daily Front Row Fashion Los Angeles Awards.

He was there to introduce the recipient of  the “Fashion Innovator of the Year” award, but before he could do that, Kanye used the opportunity to speak confusingly about celebrity, fashion and how his life resembles The Devil Wears Prada. The following truth bombs are from his epic speech:

Kanye and Miley Cyrus are the same

“We have the power to change the world. I believe that through design–because design is the closest to truth, truth is the closest to love and love is the closest thing to god, and god is love–but we have to be unselfish in our approach, which is the opposite of someone saying, ‘Kanye, you can’t get into this show because you’re a celebrity’ or some s–t like that. You know? The way we’ve embraced celebrity–what Miley’s gone through in the past couple years dealing with the fashion bigots and s–t like that.”

Kanye admitted to not paying for things

“This guy [Mazdack Rassi] let me, a celebrity designer, work at Milk Studios when Adidas couldn’t figure out where my office was. We didn’t have windows, but it was cool, you know? We’d go out and get coffee and stole a bunch of free cappuccinos from down the hallway. I promised him that I was going to be f—ing good.”

When Kanye compared his life to The Devil Wears Prada 

“As we all know, The Devil Wears Prada was about Anna [Wintour], so I was like, I want to be in the middle of that conversation where she was talking about the blue sweater. And previous to Instagram and all that type of s–t, you know this conversation: ‘You think you’re not a part of fashion because you don’t da-da-da-da,’ and somehow me and my crew, these straight black guys from Chicago who no one knew why they were at the f—ing show, wanted to say, ‘Let’s make the conversation shorter between from when the blue sweater goes to a Wang show to when it finally hits Kohl’s’ or something.”

Fashion is for literally everyone

“Everyone’s a fashion insider. It’s illegal to be naked. Everyone has some form of fashion every day.”

When Kanye likened fashion to, say, food or water

“I believe that the world can be changed, the world can be saved through design: through unselfish design, the one selfish creation.”

Kanye hates lawyers (no offense)

“In a way, the fashion is what defines the time. People could think in some way they’re a higher class or higher status or contribute more to the world because they work on bombs, they work in technology, they’re school teachers, whatever it is that seems to be somehow that type of profession that whenever you say it, everybody’s all, “You’re a lawyer? Oh, great.” Lawyer? Motherf—er. No knock to lawyers, but you know what I’m talking about.”

He watches South Park

“One connection that I have to everyone in this room, especially when me, Virgil, Don C., Fonzworth Bentley and all the people from the famous Tommy Ton (then transferred to South Park) photo have dealt with in their lives somehow, you know, being ridiculed for liking fashion–for that being a career you want to take up.”

Kanye is humble

“I don’t even know if I made one f—ing good point.”
