Kanye West recently articulated to TMZ at LAX, following his return from Super Bowl events in Las Vegas, that he believes he has not been “cancelled” due to several factors.
Kanye West’s latest album, “Vultures, ” reached the number one spot on iTunes, a milestone he interprets as evidence of his resilience and ongoing success despite facing major losses in business ventures and financial assets.
West contends that a combination of his undeniable talent and the loyalty of his outspoken fanbase has enabled him to maintain popularity. He attributes his ability to navigate controversies to these strengths alongside his innovative ideas.
Highlighting his dispute with Adidas as an example, West elaborated on his extensive European stay last year, revealing it was driven more by business motives than leisure. He asserts that, contrary to the challenges posed by the industry, his business ventures are flourishing.
In the interview, West adopts a confrontational stance towards the music industry, particularly criticizing the streaming revenue model as unfair to artists. Remarkably, he aligns himself with Taylor Swift, his long-time adversary, on this issue, suggesting a shared struggle against industry practices.
Addressing accusations of antisemitism, West offers a qualified apology, primarily directed at Jewish youth exposed to his controversial remarks, while maintaining that some of his comments were justified. He refrains from commenting extensively on the Israel-Gaza conflict, suggesting that his focus lies elsewhere, particularly on issues affecting his native region.
