Kanye West says he’s trying to figure out a way to make paparazzi pay for following him and making money off him.
“Y’all gon’ give me a percentage. Mark my words. Right now y’all get to shoot us without having to pay. I’mma change that. I’m not saying it in a negative way. It’s just like, right now, it’s just really one-sided. You guys can follow us, you guys can stand out in front of [our] hotel at any given time… you don’t give us any percentage of what you’re making off of us, off of our kids, and I’m gonna change that,” he told the TMZ reporter.
Lovely rant from @kanyewest on the imbalances of IP law when it comes to celebrities. The paparazzi is an industry that makes money from stalking & selling images of celebrities & their kids for which the celebrities don’t get compensated. pic.twitter.com/zJLGCWy0Sm

“My image is a part of something I should get paid on. We all gotta make money together. It’s more people in the world, it’s more money in the world,” he continued. “Let’s all make money together. It can’t be a one-sided thing. That when it feels, like, vulture like. Look, if I’m just with my kids, I say I don’t want you to shoot me, then that’s just something y’all gotta respect as a man. ‘Cause can get that money together, but we gotta have a conversation.”
