Kanye West Reveals “My Father Was a Paparazzo”

The rapper has revealed that his father was once a paparazzo – and it was just one of many jobs he had in his life. Kanye, who may be trying to undo the bad press he received after lashing out at a paparazzi at LAX, commented on how his father was even a celebrity photographer once upon a time:

“My father was a paparazzo himself. My father was a medical illustrator, a Black Panther, a Christian marriage counsellor. My mother was the first black chair of the English department in Chicago State. They didn’t raise me to be out here wrestling with random paparazzi in front of Lax.”

Kanye continues by saying that he has even met some nice paparazzi guys, and they often help him park and stop him from getting parking tickets (aw, doesn’t that sound lovely?). He explained:

“Sometimes I get in the car with the paparazzi. Paparazzi help me to park. The paparazzi watch my car and makes sure that cops don’t give me tickets (sic). There are some nice guys out here trying to just feed their family.”

Don’t worry everyone, it’s only a matter of time before he’s comparing them to Nazis again. He must have just been having an unusually good day.
