Kanye West: ‘I’m An Activist’

Hip-hop artist, producer and now fashion designer Kanye West doesn’t think of himself as a celebrity. In fact, he says he’s an activist.

The comments came during an interview with The New York Times reporter Jon Caramanica.

“I’m not a celebrity, I’m an activist,” West told Caramanica. “The fact that when I see truth it’s really hard for me to just sit back and just allow it to happen in front of me on my clock makes me, a lot of times, a bad celebrity.”
