Kanye Performed in a Pyramid, Yelled About Kissing Babies

Kanye West was the fake-surprise performer at last night's Adult Swim upfront, and because he is Kanye, he had a lot to share. (He also brought a super-cool light pyramid to stand in, because why not.) On the new-music front: he performed "Awesome," his love song for Kim Kardashian (most of the videos have been pulled at this point, but here is a sample lyric: "I'd rather do nothing with you than something new with somebody new"). And then for the Kanye Rant portion of the evening, he went in on the paparazzi, probably because he is still mad about the street-sign incident. A highlight: "I ain't no motherfucking celebrity. I ain't running for office. I ain't kissing nobody's motherfucking babies. I drop your baby and you sue me and shit." Also, he will not be doing any "humanizing" skits on SNL this weekend. Full video below.
