AllHipHop: Kanye West has taken to Twitter to chastise the media for fueling a "fake Twitter" war with Britney Spears and spreading other rumors about him that he says aren't true.
The revered Chicago rapper/producer lashed out over reporting on a series of tweets he sent to Britney Spears last week, "congratulating her" on being #1, by claiming that his record "H.A.M." with Jay-Z was the "greatest record of all time."
West, who really was congratulating Spears and Avril Lavigne on the success of their latest singles, did so, by mocking his infamous incident in 2009 at the VMA's with Taylor Swift.
Late last night (January 17th), Kanye snapped on the media over their portrayal of the embattled rap star.
“Just saw that MSNBC said I tried to start a twitter war with Brittany. This sh*t takes the air out my lungs sometimes from blogs to news reports… enough already!!! All I do is focus on my work.There’s a new lie everyday… a new media spin…"
Kanye also explained away recent reports that claimed he purchased a $180,000 gold, diamond encrusted watch from Tiret.
"I never got a watch with my face on it!!! A company tried to give that to me 9 yrs ago!," Kanye West said, before labeling himself one of the most "considering people in real life."
"Maybe over considerate. Over caring. Overly real. There is no astronaut training for celebrity… even though this whole life is so outer space!" Kanye tweeted. "I was actually surprised that a record as raw as H*A*M could make it to #2 on Itunes. How can u “let” someone be number one??!! That was the whole joke!!! I know intelligent people know this so bear with me. When I said the comment about Brittney [sic] I was giving her props for being #1 not dissing her at all! But stop making it seem that my aim is to hurt or down people! That’s just not my style!"
