Hallelujah! Kanye West says he’ll be less talkative in 2014

2659539-kanye-west-121212-617-409We can already tell that 2014 is about to be a good year, and it seems some people are already making New Year resolutions.

In the last stop in Toronto for his Yeezus tour, Kanye West went on an epic 27-minute rant in order to tell his fans that next year, we’ll all get a break from the following: his point of views on the fashion industry; his beef with media; why he can’t rock with President Obama, Nike or the Grammy Awards anymore; why Sway doesn’t have all the answers, and why Kim Kardashian is the greatest of all time–OF ALL TIME! He says that he doesn’t want to look like he’s ungrateful for all the opportunities he’s had, and wants to focus on being more positive. But don’t get too excited–he said he’d keep quiet for maybe six months at the least. Here’s what he told the crowd, according to Radar Online:

“This might be the last time y’all hear me talk shit for a long time. Might be another like six months. At least. You’re just gonna have to run back the interviews and shit if you wanna hear some realness!

“I’m gonna tell y’all right now, that all of the ideas, what they call the rants the streams of consciousness that I express, I told y’all, save those tapes and everything because I’ve decided to completely focus everything in 2014, on new ideas and on creative outlets. I’m not [going to] ever bring up Nike again, and the only way I’ll bring them up is in a positive light … I’ll never bring up the Grammys again in a negative light, because I actually appreciate the 21 Grammys that I did win.

“I’m not [trying] to be a dude that has all the opportunities in the world and only focuses on the negative, or complains about it, or just gets in some type of zone that just having to turn up all the time and shit. So I’m letting you all now that this is the last Yeezus show, and this is the last time you’ll ever hear me say negative about anyone …”

Talk is cheap, but silence is golden! Do you think Kanye will really save us all his rants for at least six months? Or do you think he was speaking the “realness” that nobody was ready to hear?

    Never thought I’d be saying this but I just might be falling in love with Kanye right now for the singular reason that he admitted to saying ‘shit’. Dude KNOWS he talks crap, that’s highly commendable. LOL!

    I doubt if he can keep his mouth shut for long though, old habits die hard; we’ll just have to wait and see now, wouldn’t we?
