What's eating you today, Kanye West?

With a brand-new album on the shelves, the Grammy-winning rapper wants to put the drama of the past year behind him.

So how is he going about this? By talking about it more, of course.

"I've decided to fall back a bit on interviews in order to 'sell my album' I can't come up with some magic trick to make people like me," West tweeted this afternoon.

"I've made mistakes I've paid the price now it is what it is. I'm gone make this art but I'm not going to be scrutinized as a human being. No more Bush questions ... no more Taylor questions... no more relationship questions.... and the music is unquestionable sooooo.....

"I am a creative person," he concluded. "I'm not a good celebrity but I'm a great artist... I'm tired of using my celebrity to sell my art.

Oh, come now, you're a great celebrity. You've been on Entourage, you're a jet-setter, you're dramatic and volatile, you hang out with the Kardashians and you're 250 percent confident in everything that you produce.

What could be more conducive to infamy than that?

Rolling Stone also bestowed five-star "classic" status on his latest release, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy—so even if really isn't a good celebrity, at least he's not blowing smoke when he calls himself a great artist, either.
