Kanye wishes he was likeable like Lenny Kravitz

1 of 1 Kanye West -
Kanye West - "Damn, I wish I was likeable like that."

A Kanye West concert took a bizarre turn when he went on a rant about Lenny Kravitz, saying he envies him for being so likeable without realising that Lenny himself was in the audience.

In the middle of the performance in New York, West referred to himself, Jay Z and Drake as "the modern day poets" and went on to drag an unsuspecting Kravitz into things. Kravitz was in the audience, as were Leonardo DiCaprio, Idris Elba and Busta Rhymes.

During the outburst, West said: "There would be no song called N***** in Paris without Lenny Kravitz, because he was the first N**** in Paris. Lenny has the best taste and the dopest crib in Paris. He designs furniture and he had been working on a clothing line for a long time.

"I said, 'Wait a second, I've got a dream of doing a clothing line.' You know what the billionaires told me while I was in Paris? They said Lenny wanted to do the same thing, like it was a joke.

"There wouldn't be no Kanye West if it wasn't for Lenny Kravitz. The only difference is I turn up on those ******, I don't give a **** about looking cool or being cool, and this is no disrespect to Lenny."

Page Six report that Kravitz could then be heard saying, "He doesn't know I'm here" before Kanye concluded, "Have you heard anyone talk about Lenny Kravitz? He's a nice guy, he's so well mannered. I envy people who are extremely likeable, I'm like, 'Damn, I wish I could be likeable like that'."
