Watch Kanye West Bring Too Much "Realness" to 'Ellen'
Published May 19, 2016Drake dropped by Ellen earlier this week, keeping things fun and breezy, but Kanye West opted to take a different approach when he appeared as the talk show's guest yesterday (May 18).
Primarily communicating in one-word answers, Yeezy talked to Ellen Degeneres about his family. He loosens up a bit when they get to talking about his infamous Twitter account, saying he doesn't regret any of the 140-character messages he's sent or think he should edit himself online, adding with a laugh: "What's the point of thinking?"
He then unleashes a stream of classic Kanye-isms as Degeneres tries to keep a straight face. When he settles down from an impromptu crowd hype-up, his unbridled passion gives way to a poignant, personal stream-of-consciousness rant about his art and ideas, ending by saying, "I'm sorry daytime television, I'm sorry for the realness."
After that, things lighten up again with a silly game show within a talk show called "5 Second Rule" in which the rapper is asked to name three things that are hairy. His answer? "Balls, balls, balls."
