10 of Kanye’s Most Outrageous Moments in Honor of His 39th Birthday

Happy Birthday Kanye!

The rapper and fashion designer turns 39 today (June 8). In the past year, he’s had some major events happen.

First of all, his wife, Kim Kardashian, gave birth to their second child, Saint West. He also released his album, The Life of Pablo.

In addition to his accomplishments as a father and an artist, Kanye is known for being very, very outspoken and a little more than outrageous. This doesn’t seem like it’s changing any time soon.

In honor of his birthday, Celebuzz! compiled our favorite out-there things that Kanye has said and done.

Here are our Top 10 outrageous Kanye moments: 

1) He interrupted a friend’s wedding recently to make a throwback reference.

Taylor was nowhere in sight.

2) He jumped into Swan Lake during a free concert in Yerevan, Armenia in April 2015 and was mobbed by fans.

It was reported that he did so to “try and walk on water.”

3) Kanye’s Twitter feud with Jimmy Kimmel.

After Jimmy Kimmel parodied a Kanye interview, the rapper went off on Twitter. One of the tweets read “JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS.” The two resolved the argument when Kanye appeared on Kimmel’s show.

4) Kan-yeti?

In 2012 at a show in Atlantic City, Kanye performed in a Yeti costume, definitely surprising fans.

In 2006, Kanye posed as Jesus on this Rolling Stone magazine cover caused major controversy.

Honestly it’s jaw-dropping.

7) “I am Picasso. I am Michelangelo. I am Basquiat. I am Walt Disney. I am Steve Jobs.”

Kanye said this infamous quote back in 2013 at a concert in Paris.

8) Kanye said that his biggest regret in life is not being able to see himself perform.

Back in 2009, Kanye said in an interview with VH1 “I am God’s vessel. But my greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live.”

9) Kanye stealing the mic from Taylor at the VMAs in 2009.

“Imma let you finish, but Beyonce had the best video of all time.”
