Ah, Kanye, Kanye, Kanye… how I hate thee, let me count the ways. I’ve been meaning to write about this flaming hemorrhoid for a while now, not because I haven’t yet expressed my hate for him, but because he never seems to be satisfied with his level of doucheness and always feels the burning need to up the ante of all ways of being an asshole.
Seems little Kanye Omari thinks he’s still changing the face of music while in reality he’s quickly becoming a sidenote, mostly remembered for his antics rather than for his “music”. In a series of gaffes that would make any political candidate proud, our little suburban rapper made the claim that Coldplay are better than the Beatles and that Christopher Martin is a better song writer than John Lennon. If you don’t believe me, click the title of the post or just copy the link below and read for yourself:
In a comment straight out of the Chronicles of WTF, West said that he thinks a collaboration between him and the Coldplay frontman would make “one of the greatest albums ever”. He goes on to say that Coldplay is on the same level as the Beatles and if that isn’t enough to make John and George roll in their graves, he says… and I quote: "In 30 years, when Coldplay are old men, people will look back and say, 'These guys were more talented than The Beatles.”
So it wasn’t enough that you have consistently embarrassed yourself on television to make Black America pissed off at your existence, you dare to even mention Coldplay in the same sentence as the Beatles. Hey nothing against Coldplay, as a pussy radio-friendly substitute for Radiohead, they do wonders for me, but I wouldn’t even place them on my top 50 favorite bands, much less the best fifty bands that ever were.
But in a classic PR stunt, Kanye insists on saying something idiotic for the sake of publicity because he’s thinking that even bad press is good press, as long as people are talking about him. For my part, I’m delivering on that promise. I’m talking about Kanye West. But instead of reviewing an album or recommending him for some decent tracks, I focus on the spectacle that is Kanye, rivaling and surpassing Sean Combs in terms of being a prick. Sorry if I don’t say P Diddy, Puff Daddy, Puffy the Vampire Slayer or whatever the fuck other stage name he uses. I don’t want to keep track so I won’t.
Any talent West has is eclipsed by the fact that he’s a media whore and needs to be in the press saying something stupid. So enjoy the show that is Kanye, rip his music, boycott his shows and just tune in to CNN as we enjoy the continuing meltdown of yet another MTV idiot.
