Kanye West has made several appearances over the last couple weeks, including participating in a panel at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. During that chat, he talked about having to edit his wedding pictures for four days so they could be posted on Instagram.

Fresh from his Florentine nuptials with Kim Kardashian, Kanye West is riding his newlywed high as only he can.

Rather than spend time with his family or pen a song on the love of his life, he is instead making a round of rant-filled media appearances. 

He’s already called out celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz, who pulled out of taking his wedding photos and forced him to spend four days editing the pictures the couple eventually posted to Instagram – a testament to his valiant ability to overcome life’s unexpected challenges. But in an recent interview, Kanye decided to sound off on his critics as well as the effectiveness of the country’s commander-in-chief. 

According to Radar Online, West went on yet another rant about his creativity and unappreciated greatness during a Thursday morning interview with California's Power 106FM.

He first slammed critics who complained about him comparing himself to Apple’s late founder Steve Jobs. He claims the purpose of his statements is being misinterpreted by people. “Don’t worry about how I’m saying what I’m saying,” he insisted. “Look at what I’m saying and how I feel and how my intent is.” 

West also threatened anyone attempting to get in the way of his personal mission.

“You do not want to go against the power. I’m working on one mission, and that’s a mission from God,” West said. “I’m gonna make it very clear exactly what I’m here to do. I’m here to help. I’m going to apply all the blessings I’ve got.”

He then moved on to the topic of politics, saying that figures like President Barack Obama can’t make real change in those type of elected positions.

“You can’t effect change from inside the White House like that . . . You gotta have the money,” West said. He added that money isn’t typically a necessity for “good ideas” and “creativity and extreme genius are extremely cheap.”

The comments on Obama may come as a surprise to some since West vowed not talk about him anymore after the president him a “jackass.” 

Speaking to Philly’s 107.9 FM last November, West said he didn’t care what the president had to say and warned that he "shouldn't mention [Kim Kardashian’s] name, 'cause we both from Chicago."
