Whether you love him or hate him, Kanye West, the self-proclaimed musical genius, really knows how to get people talking. Whenever he opens his mouth he becomes the hottest trending topic on the web, but for all the wrong reasons. While he has talent, the stupidity of his comments always overshadows his abilities as a musician.
Self-confidence is admirable, but there is a line, and Kanye West crossed it many years ago. What West has is the very pinnacle of arrogance, ignorance and egotism. His illusion of self-worth is so strong that he demands respect from everybody. At the end of the day, Kanye West is a rap musician -- his other ventures aren’t worth mentioning here. Contrary to what he believes, he doesn’t have an all-important role in this world; there are plenty of others who could fill his shoes. There truly is no end to Kanye West's idiocy. While this list could go on indefinitely, here are the 12 funniest, most ridiculous moments from his career.

He titled his album Yeezus; named one of the tracks I Am a God; and then, after Time Magazine named him the most influential person in the world, he Tweeted “I AM Yeezus! Ppl respect me I AM ur God. Time Magazine got it right this time”. But that wasn’t the first time he compared himself to the almighty. He’s also claimed to be “God’s vessel” and appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine wearing a crown of thorns. With bizarre statements like these, it’s a wonder why so many people buy into his egocentric, megalomaniac behavior.
