Kanye West identifies with Vanellope von Schweetz; an animated character from Wreck It Ralph of course.
This is just awesome. Kanye West compares himself to Vanellope von Schweetz, a character from Wreck-It-Ralph in a recent interview. No matter what you think of Kanye, the fact that he can sympathize and identify with a strong animated character is brilliant. I love it.
Kanye says “It’s in my code. Have y’all ever seen Wreck-It Ralph?
Remember how that girl in there—the people that was racing—she was the
glitch. You tellin’ me they don’t look at me like the motherfucking
glitch? You tellin’ me people don’t look at Kanye West like the glitch
right now? And she was on the side of the videogame the whole time. It’s
in my code.”

From cartoonbrew; When the interviewer mentioned West’s critics, Kanye extended the
metaphor by talking about Vanellope’s foes, who tried to keep prevent
her from participating in the race by breaking her kart. “Yeah, they
broke Vanellope’s car,” West responded. “Vanellope von Schweetz, they
broke her car.”
