Hollywood is full of bizarre celebrities, but perhaps the most wild and surreal of them all is Kanye West. From his attempt to destroy Taylor Swift on national television, to his publicity-fuelled marriage to Kim Kardashian, few others can match the self-described God of rap's steady stream of tabloid-worthy antics.
When famous people talk about Kanye West, it's almost certain that some crazy story about Kanye will follow. These are a few of the weirdest tales that stars have graced us with during Kanye's reign over the entertainment industry.
While attending a party at Kanye's house, comedian Aziz Ansari found himself forced to perform for thirty guests.
"My favorite part was when every once in a while, somebody would be in the kitchen making a drink and they'd make a little noise, and Kanye would jump up and yell, 'Yo! Shut the f--- up! Homey's over here trying to tell some jokes!' Which is the best thing anybody has ever yelled at a comedy show."

“Me and my wife had gotten some dessert and were in the lobby getting plates to bring back to our room… And Kanye was like, ‘What are you guys doing? Want to hear my new album?’ So he takes us to this limo van and starts playing his album – except there's no lyrics only beats. So he raps the whole album and after each song, he stops it, like ‘So what do you think?’ We were in the van for 2 hours!”

Ninja From Die Antwoord Played Basketball With Kanye
Ninja from Die Antwoord is a weird dude, but even he was blown away by Kanye. The artist first became acquainted with Kanye after he showed up in the background of a Facetime conversation Ninja was having with Paris Hilton. Before he knew it, Ninja was hanging out at Kanye's house. "He had like a whole Jurrasic Park kinda swimming pool."
Kanye invited Ninja to play some ball over at his neighbor's house. Ninja agreed, only to learn that this wasn't just any old neighbor. "We're gonna go shoot some hoops next door at Drake's house." Ninja's mind was blown.
On the set of Anchorman 2, Judd Apatow learned just how difficult Kanye could be. While shooting West's cameo, Apatow was told "Go talk to Kanye, there's an issue with his outfit."
The issue, which ended up costing the production team about two hours, was that Kanye didn't like his jacket. Despite the setback, Apatow was forgiving. "The business needs crazy people to be creative and groundbreaking. You've got to be crazy, and a little bit of an a**hole to be like that."
