Kanye West’s fast talking and complaining has been on irritating quite a few people. But talk show host, Arsenio Hall, didn’t let recent comments about him go unchecked.
“Like usually, Kanye’s premise confuses the facts, so then therefore everything else has to be thrown up,” Hall said to HipHollywood during last week’s Grammy nomination show. “At the end of the day he’s a musician I’m a comedian. We’re not doctors. Nobody works for Johns Hopkins…we’re not educators. And I think we take ourselves a little too serious. But that’s something that will straighten itself out with maturity.”
“I don’t like to be put into those conversations, cause there’s no struggle here,” he continued. “My struggle was in the ghetto of Cleveland. There’s no struggle now, and nothing about what I do or he does.”
The comedian also shared his thoughts on West’s usage of the word “slave” in songs such as his single, “New Slaves.”
“I hate the word ‘slave’ used in songs. Get the f**k outta here. Do you know what that word is? Do you know what that word is all about? Nobody can use ‘Slave’ in pop culture. If you’re in the music business you shouldn’t f**k with that word. It’s too serious an error. Too serious a problem in America.”
