Kanye West Gives Words of Wisdom to Graduating Fashion Students: ‘When You’re the Best, You Get Hated On the Most’.

Kanye West returned to Los Angeles Trade Technical College on Friday night – the school where West taught after being ordered to serve community service following a scuffle with a photographer – to address this year’s graduates. “It’s a tough world out there. You’re going to prepare yourself for politics, bad bosses, hatin’ employees,” West said during the speech, before hitting the money line: “And usually, when you’re the absolute best, you get hated on the most.” West told the grads to “never stop fighting” no matter the obstacles. “If it’s in your gut, if it’s in your soul, there’s nothing – no worldly possessions – that should come between you and your expression,” he said.

People always try to box you in to what they know you best for,” he continued. “I feel extremely honored to see new talent fighting or their voice.” Meanwhile, Glastonbury co-organiser Emily Eavis has revealed that she received death threats after booking Kanye West to headline this year’s festival. But in what has resembled the backlash sparked by the booking of Jay Z in 2008, some festival-goers have been angered by the selection, with an online petition calling for Kanye to be replaced by a rock band attracting more than 133,000 signatures. In a new interview with The Times, Eavis, who organises the festival with her father, Glastonbury founder Michael, has asserted that attracting West is “an amazing coup”, but said some of the abuse she’s received has been “just horrible”. “I had death threats and stuff. This incredible onslaught worldwide.” “It was quite upsetting because we were talking about something that was so exciting and interesting and fresh and brilliant for the festival.
