The rapper laughed at the reports of him being advised by his management team to take anger management classes, saying that he needs anger enhancement.
Being outspoken and true to his nature, Kanye West has been strongly advised by his management team to take anger management classes. The approach is taken as a measure for his career's future that will be jeopardized should he continue lashing out at every problems he is entangled with. West, has responded to this with jokes and comparison.
On his official blog West said that media make things up about this one like when rumors were swirling on his fiancee's pregnancy. "Do yall remember when people said my fiance was pregnant???? What happened to that rumor????? I guess after we broke up it was just forgot about???? I'm just using that as an example of how people make up stuff and everybody runs with it. I had my own family asking me about that," he gushed.
Addressing the anger management rumor he said, "I have never had any conversations about anger management. If anything, I need anger enhancement!! lol! I get off the plane in Hawaii today and the world is saying my management team said blah blah blah... SIIIIIIGGGHHHH! I told the media you can't make up lies about me because I have a media outlet myself. Oh and sidebar I don't know if everyone has realized this yet but I don't do interviews if there's anything I wanna say I'll say right here on my own blog."
Earlier this week, British tabloid The Sun quoted a source as saying that his management team "came up with the idea. His mood swings were beginning to play a part in his commercial enterprises as people felt he was miserable all the time." They believe that the anger could cost him sponsorship deals at any length.
The early sign of West's uncontrolled anger came in 2005 when he made headlines with his scathing attack against President Bush over handling the situation post Hurricane Katrina. He also lashed out at MTV for not letting him win any trophy despite many nominations he had at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards. "That's two years in a row, man ... give a black man a chance," he said in front of onlookers and media at that time. "I'm trying hard man, I have the ... number one record, man."
People also believe that West has been low for sometime after his mother's death in November 2007. He recently blogged about the people who criticized him about being late at the Bonnaroo Festival. He said, "I understand if people don't like me because I like me or if people think tight clothes look gay or people say I run my mouth too much, but this Bonnaroo thing is the worst insult I've ever had in my life".
