Kanye West is "Cool with the Paparazzi"

Kanye West is

Kanye West totes around his Louis Vuitton backpack and carries his Macbook after arriving in Hawaii via private jet on Friday.

Yesterday, the 31-year-old rapper was arrested at LAX airport in Los Angeles for breaking a photographer’s camera.

Kanye just blogged about the experience: “We back in the lab [making music]!!! I’m cool with the paparazzi. This guy wasn’t cool. I gotta work now… I’ll rant later!”

Mr. West, along with his road manager, allegedly damaged $10,000 worth of camera equipment. Check out the video of them wrestling for cameras at TMZ.

Kayne‘s upcoming album, 808 & Heartbreak, is scheduled for a December 16th release.

    I think that kanye’s reaction was pathetic, i dont see many other celebs, who are papped alot more than him acting like that, the pap has every right to sue.

  • heeells no

    Kanye is another example of a loud mouthed idiot. YOU KNOW WHEN YOU BECOME OF FIGURED OF THE PUBLIC……..THAT COMES WITH IT! IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT……..YOU SHOULDN’T OF STARTED SINGING SHITTY MUSIC LIKE YOU DO. YOU GET PAID MORE IN ONE DAY THEN SOME WITH EVER MAKE………DEAL THE HELL WITH IT. I RATHER BE FOLLOWED AND PHOTOGRAPHED 5 minutes a day and make a 5 milli a year then have to go to work 6 days a week and make what you consider pocket change. GO TO ANGER MANAGEMENT AND QUIT BEING SO IGNORANT.

    i hate this idiot

  • brenda

    no one knows what the pap might have said and you got to remember that he just lost his Mom not long ago.

    Some of these guys can pop off comments that really do piss off people and they don’t care how it makes a person feel and he isn’t the only one that has had run ins with the pap. Some of these pap have criminal records, I guess that is the only way they can make money now.

  • boston

  • angry

    kanye is an angry, angry guy.

    If you looked like that you would be angry too.

  • jpg

    why is this guy so nasty and negative towards life? he never smiles.

    don’t use the excuse that since his mother died he has become negative because he was that way before!

    He is making millions of dollars and he is a nasty negative assshole!

  • tantrum

    I just watched the video. This loser threw a tantrum over someone taking his picture? This piece of shiit makes million of dollars per year and he act like this?

    who the helll cares about this fugly classless loser???

    Oh, and he looks like he got hit with an ugly stick over and over again!!!!

  • athena

    I’ve personally heard paparazzi say some obnoxious and insulting things to celebs before…Having met a paparazzi photographer, he says they pretty much egg them on sometimes just to get a rise, and get tips from people as far as knowing where the celebs are.

    As far as Kanyes’ actions…I hope he doesn’t blame it on the stresses of his past…Besides…Fans love to see what their fave celebs are doing….taking a short video clip and sometimes pics shouldn’t be a problem…it goes with the territory of celebrity…

    I just wish I was making his millions…I make no where near his bucks…I don’t care what his rant is…there is no excuse for him to charge and ruin that photogs camera and equiptment…he works hard just like everyone else…even if the camera man was insulting, Kanye should have been the bigger person and just ignored him and continue on his way.

    Well, one day, Kanye won’t be famous anymore and he’ll be begging for the paps to be in his face….

  • NotoriousRambo

    TMZ YOU ARE ALL A BUNCH OF PUCCIES SINCE YOU CALLED THE COPS ON KANYE, YOU GUYS LOVE TO HARASS CELEBRITIES AND WHEN THE TABLES ARE TURNED YOU RUN TO THE COPS AWWWWW POOR TMZ AND THEIR CAMERA LOLZZZZZZ Sh!TS FUNNY

  • Sister Foxy Loxy

    Stupid cowardly fuçker. I bet he’s got kiddie pörn on his precious macbook air.

  • Katie

    I don’t get why some people are defending him destroying other people’s property! Ok, the press might have been out of order, but he, along with everyone else in the world, doesn’t have ANY RIGHT to destroy something someone else owns without replacing it. No matter how cheap or expensive, great or annoying.
    Can I also just say, people saying he’s not happy since his mum died. My gran died at the beginning of the year and ok, I get upset about it sometimes, but I don’t go round smashing other peoples stuff if they push their luck. Everyone loses someone in their life at one point and if that’s his way of dealing with it, it’s the wrong way.
    Also, how would YOU like it if someone did that to something worth 10,000 of yours, wouldn’t YOU take drastic action? Especially in that situation. I’d want to call the police. He could have attacked the press as well!

  • kanobi

    First of all neither Kanye or the photographer is correct in their actions, Kanye was wrong for destroying the photographers equipment and the photographer was wrong for taking a shot of someone who doesn’t want their photo taken. Just because he is a celebrity doesn’t make it automatically ok for him to be photographed. For example almost no woman wants to be photographed if their hair is all messed up or their attire is in a disarray, and they will have a full fledged fit if someone a friend or relative takes a shot of them in that way. Hey they are just taking a photo right. But if you don’t want your photo taken at that time then you have the right to be angry, even if it is legal for them to take a photo whenever they please. Imagine you picking your nose or doing something extremely embarrassing and someone takes a shot of you like that and email it to everyone you know even your co-workers, how would that make you feel? Even worse a lot of the paparazzi take photos of celebrities’ children which may inadvertently put their lives at risk to the hand of some sick psycho, they are out there. Now how would you feel? I think Kanye should apologize for breaking the camera, and buy him or her another one, he can afford to but I believe he may be justified! As for paparazzi, they should hide a little better when taking photos of coveted celebrities, what a celebrity doesn’t know can’t hurt them, well at least not right at that moment!
