Rapper and designer (?) Kanye West has definitely been a polarizing figure in pop culture over the years. During a fundraiser for Hurricane Katrina during George W. Bush’s presidency, West declared on national television (and to everyone’s surprise) that “George Bush doesn’t care about Black people.” In 2009, he stole Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech time at the VMAs to declare that Beyonce should have won the award. Clearly, West has no problem speaking his mind. That, in and of itself, isn’t a bad thing, but it’s probably best for Kanye to take a few etiquette classes if he’s going to continue to be in the public eye.

Speaking of the public eye, Kanye is definitely here to stay (at least for now), since he’s married to Kim Kardashian, one of the most famous women in the world. Aside from Kim’s obsession with selfies and many business ventures, she and Kanye have a little girl named North, and are expecting a son soon. Those are just more reasons why the public is still so interested in Kanye and what he may say or do next. There was once a time when the rapper and producer from Chicago was just a kid with a backpack and a dream. Now, he’s…well, he’s Kanye. He also thinks he reminds the public of other great people. Here are 12 celebrities Kanye West has compared himself to.

That’s right. Kanye West actually compared himself to God. Maybe he means that he’s a god in the sense that he’s in control of his creative destiny to a certain extent. Perhaps he means that he intends to save the music industry. Or, maybe West is just trying to say that he’s confident. Whatever the case, saying that you’re God is taking things way too far, and even made West’s fans raise an eyebrow. During a 2013 interview Zane Lowe of BBC’s Radio 1, Kanye said, “when someone comes along and says something like, ‘I am a God,’ and everybody says, ‘Who does he think he is?’ I just told you who I thought I was. A God. I just told you. That’s who I think I am.” Whoa.
