As part of his GQ Men Of The Year cover story, actor/comedian Dave Chappelle addressed a variety of topics and also offered his thoughts on Kanye West. During his interview, Chappelle first recalled Kanye performing at one of his Radio City Music Hall performances this year.

He says the Chicago, Illinois lyricist questioned why he wasn’t invited to perform at the show. While speaking on Kanye questioning his lack of an invite, Chappelle compared the rapper to a pretty girl at the dance and explained that “the machinery” behind the show may have been too intimidated to ask the rapper to take part.

“No one was more surprised than me when he did the surprise performance during my Radio City show,” Chappelle said. “It was weird. You know what he said after the fact, which I thought was funny? He said, ‘Why wasn’t I on the show in the first place? Like, why wasn’t I booked?’ So I don’t know what happened via the machinery. It also could be that Kanye’s like a girl that’s so pretty, nobody asks her to the dance. You know what I mean? I knew the day before that he was coming to see the show. Then, as I was walking onstage, right before I went on, Kanye was there and was like, ‘Yo, can I rock with y’all?’ And I thought he meant in general—like, ‘Yeah, man, always! We all cool for life! Blah blah blah.’ Talking all that bs. And then afterwards, when I say good night, I looked up. Kanye is actually onstage, standing there with a microphone in his hand. I was like, ‘This is nuts.’”

The former “Chappelle’s Show” host continued to speak on ‘Ye when asked what he thought about Kanye comparing his ordeals with the paparazzi to that of the civil rights struggle. He didn’t agree with Kanye’s civil rights struggle comparison, but did state that dealing with the paparazzi as someone with a great deal of fame has the potential to be dehumanizing.
