Kanye West: I'm going to stop talking negatively for now

Could there be a quieter, gentler Kanye West on the way?

The rapper and fiance of Kim Kardashian has reportedly said he will stop talking negatively for at least six months. During a tour stop in Toronto, West went on for more than 25 minutes about various topics, including that he's talked some smack.

"I think it's a misconception that people be thinking I'm angry and s***," he said. "Why do the truth always sound some angry? I ain't angry at nothing. I'm not mad at all."

West said he's going to focus in the new year on "all the new ideas and all the creative outlets." As for his recent feud with Nike, West said he will never mention that again.

"I'm not (going to) ever bring up Nike again," he said. "And the only way I'll bring them up is in a positive light, because I actually appreciate the opportunity to have been able to make my own shoe with them, and if I didn't have the opportunity I wouldn't have my deal I have with Adidas right now."

Check out the rapper's entire commentary here, though be warned there is some profanity:


What do you think? Do you buy his vow to keep his mouth shut?

    Kanye is a very talented artist. He's a little rough around the edges, but that's sort of what gives his creativity the tweaks it needs to be ever more and evolving. I loathe and detest the "Kimye" sensation, but I will say I believe that Kanye is making what he believes is an honest vow to try to be more positive. He's a new parent – he knows his child will someday see the things he's said and done. Also, after he lost his mother, he really was an angry lost child for a while; I cannot imagine the depth of his pain and angst. Thank the Divine he had his creativity as an outlet, because I'm not sure he ever had the proper emotional coping skills to deal with hard issues like that. Now he says he feels like he has family again – and he wants to be better, for himself, for his child, for his bride, and for the family (who've accepted and love him quite a bit, I understand). Kanye has said some really outrageous stuff before that has been downright astounding in either arrogance, ignorance, anger, hostility or a number of other things, but when he takes a look at himself and says – "I want to change – here's one way I'm going to try to do it," I think everyone deserves a chance to be a better person and to be allowed to try (and perhaps maybe stumble a few times) in achieving that "better person" status. I haven't liked the man as much as I have his music in a long time, and hearing the soundbites made the music even less enjoyable....here's hoping Kanye can show us all a lesson in life about striving for something better – for one's self, for one's child, for one's family, for one's career. Best of luck, to you, Mr. West. There is support out there – maybe it's not as vocal as "da haterz", but the people whose respect you would want to have are rooting for you to make good.

    Kanye needs Olivia Pope along with a grammar teacher and a publicist who can teach him how to speak articulately and conduct himself in public. Just take a look at all of the stars during the Motown era. Berry Gordy, to his credit, sent his stable of stars to etiquette and speech classes so they would not embarrass the company, nor themselves. Kanye, along with Jay-Z and Beyonce need to be taught how to speak properly.

    Don't get it twisted...I am a Black female and am often appalled at how some of my people sound like they don't even have a grade school education. They may be rich, but hearing them speak, lets everyone know they are uneducated. My advice to them, use some of your money to learn how to use proper English and grammar. UGH!

    I agree with Kanye...he should stop talking until he learns how to speak intelligently and use proper English. He may consider himself a genius, but he always sounds so damn stupid!

      darn it! I thought he was gonna stop talking all together. And why are they always photographed without their baby? Are they embarrassed by her? They should be home with home with her instead of out shopping and being photographed all over the place. just saying...
