Kanye West has compared himself to Adolf Hitler in his latest outburst.

Taking to the stage at England's Big Chill Festival, where he was the closing act, West decided he needed to get something off his chest.

He said: "I walk through the hotel and I walk down the street, and people look at me like I'm ... insane, like I'm Hitler. One day the light will shine through, and one day people will understand everything I ever did."

West, who is known for speaking his mind, stormed onto the stage of the MTV Europe Music Awards after failing to win a gong in 2006, and invaded the stage once again at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards to complain when Beyonce’s Single Ladies video lost out to Taylor Swift.

The multi-platinum seller finished up his recent statement by comparing himself to basketball player Michael Jordan. West explained that there is so much going on in music at the moment and he needs to make a difference.
