Suit jackets. The eleventh letter of the alphabet. Capitalism. Practically anything can set Kanye off, but as Ellen Degeneres and her captivated/confused audience recently learned, nothing can *quite* set him off as much as asking him why he gets set off.

"Picasso is dead, Steve Jobs is dead, [Walt] Disney is dead. Name someone living that you can name in the same breath as them," he said during his seven-minute polemic on everything from his synesthesia and his father's homelessness to #OscarsSoWhite and his goal to become the "Michael Jackson of apparel."

"We're one race, the human race, we're a blip in the existence of the universe and we're constantly trying to pull each other down. It's like I'm shaking talking about it, I feel I can make a difference while I'm here, I feel I can make a difference through my skill set."
