"He was trying to tell me what I need to focus on. Meanwhile, he's selling this s**t product to everybody and his whole thing is based off of selling s**t product." Rather than engage West in a public battle, Zappos responded with a humorous listing on its website for " Gear Sh-t Product." "Interested in buying sh-t product? You've come to the right place! Here at, we happily sell sh-t products to everybody! This is the throne, everyone has been watching.

The 36-year-old rapper took a moment during the concert to expound on everyone from Bruno Mars to Oprah Winfrey. Kanye addressed the MTV Video Music Awards, saying producer Rick Rubin encouraged him to "just do your motherf--king song and leave." (West performed "Blood on the Leaves" during the August awards ceremony.) Evidently he didn't leave soon enough: "Bruno Mars won all the motherf--king awards and s--t. And I was thinking about what Rick Rubin told me, because I dont give a f--k about no TV show. But what I care about is if youre an artist and you work hard as f--k and the streets say that you deserve that s--t. Then cant no motherf--king networks try to gas everybody up so they can sell some product with the prettiest motherf--ker out." Later in his sermon, Kanye discussed his relationship with Winfrey, and the advice she offered him, which provided riffs of Kanye singing, "Oprah, it's a new day." The rest of his 10-minute speech includes words on his fashion career, the stigmas still in place against rap, and the reactions to his "Yeezus" album.

Music emcee shared the news as he spoke on daughter North West and making decisions based on the effect they might have on his family. Man, just not making decisions for myself and making sure I made decisions for my family, said Kanye. Like if its for myself, I would have been cool just sitting in Nike not getting no royalties. Letting people line up for the Yeezys and notyou know. When Im having negotiations and then I go and look in my daughters eyes and when I go and negotiate after that Im like Oh yall aint finna talk to me like that. We finna get this money right. Kanye later addressed TMZ and the paparazzi and spoke on an incident in which a member of the paparazzi attempted to use his mothers death to incite a reaction from the rapper as he traveled with Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Scott Disick whose mother passed away this month.

On novelist Bret Easton Ellis' podcast Monday, West slammed the CEO of the shoe retailer for selling a "s--t product."

"Meanwhile, he sells all this s--t product to everybody, his whole thing is based off of selling s--t product." In response, Zappos launched a new "s--t" product page on their site, featuring a toilet and plunger for a mere $100,000.

"This is the throne, everyone has been watching," reads the toilet's description, referring to Kanye's recent effort with Jay Z. "Whether you're #1 or #2, your clique will show no mercy, even in Paris." "The perfect gift for the man who has everything," it continued, linking to the E! News story by way of explanation. By the way, that sound you just heard? That's Zappos dropping the mike .
