2. “How many people here think they’re awesome and have had people say they’re not their whole lives?” He asked the crowd. “What have I ever done other than believe in myself?”

3. “They’ve taken the idea of celebrity and tried to make me seem like I was stupid or something. I’m not going to mention names. I’m not going to say Nike or anything.”

4. “I’m not dissing Louis Vuitton and I’m not dissing the Gucci group. Don’t discriminate against me because I’m a black man or I’m a celebrity.”
5. At first people were cheering in support of what Kanye said, but soon the audience’s patience began to wane.
Oh dear Kanye West. Literally lecturing us for 15 mins with a tea towel over his face as the crowd boo. Bit odd. #Wireless
