Kanye is the Worst

I really don’t like Kanye west. I used to, his music is alright, but West as a person sucks. What a piece of junk—what’s worse is he thinks he’s a bar of gold. Vulture put together some amazing quotes from a recent interview of West’s. Enjoy:

  • “I will be the leader of a company that ends up being worth billions of dollars, because I got the answers. I understand culture. I am the nucleus.”


  • “I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period. By a long jump. I honestly feel that because Steve has passed, you know, it’s like when Biggie passed and Jay-Z was allowed to become Jay-Z.”


  • “I am so credible and so influential and so relevant that I will change things.”


  • “The longer your ‘gevity is, the more confidence you build. The idea of Kanye and vanity are like, synonymous.”


  • “It’s only led me to complete awesomeness at all times. It’s only led me to awesome truth and awesomeness. Beauty, truth, awesomeness. That’s all it is.”


  • “I was on the junior team when I was a freshman, that’s how good I was. But I wasn’t on my eighth-grade team, because some coach — some Grammy, some reviewer, some fashion person, some blah blah blah — they’re all the same as that coach.”


  • “You know, if Michael Jordan can scream at the refs, me as Kanye West, as the Michael Jordan of music, can go and say, ‘This is wrong.’”


  • “I am in the lineage of Gil Scott-Heron, great activist-type artists. But I’m also in the lineage of a Miles Davis — you know, that liked nice things also.”


  • “I was wearing like, a Juicy Couture men’s polo shirt. We weren’t there, like, ready for war.”


  • “I looked at Justin, and I was like: ‘Do you want me to go onstage for you?’”


  • “I don’t know if this is statistically right, but I’m assuming I have the most Grammys of anyone my age, but I haven’t won one against a white person.”


  • “I’m the type of rock star that likes to have a girlfriend, you know?”


  • “Like, this is my baby. This isn’t America’s baby.”


  • “This one Corbusier lamp was like, my greatest inspiration … I’m a minimalist in a rapper’s body.”


  • “Like, I want the world to be better! All I want is positive! All I want is dopeness! Why would you want to control that?”


  • “I would go up the escalator [at Virgin music stores] and say to myself, ‘I’m soaking in these last moments of anonymity.’ I knew I was going to make it this far.”


So remember when you pick up the latest Kanye West album you are reaffirming what he thinks of himself. Do us all a favor and stream or illegally download it. Don’t give him anymore ammo.

Kim and Kanye are Just Like Jesus

Everyone who reads this blog knows my feeling on Kim and Kanye but they have really done it this time. Kim and Kanye went to Rio on vacation—I don’t know what they need a vacation from, their lives are a vacation for Christ’s sake. They go to Rio and they do the touristy thing and visit the famous Christ the Redeemer statue. That’s fine, that’s normal. I’ve seen Jim Carrey visiting that statue and posting his pics on Twitter with a big beautiful smile. I have a friend from Rio and she post pics of she and her husband standing underneath Christ’s open arms. These are normal shots. But apparently Kim and Kanye are better than normal people.

They go to the Christ the Redeemer statue and they don’t smile up at him in their shot, they don’t stand under him…they pose like him. They posed as Jesus Christ. Yup, that happened. They stood there, arms outstretched, blessing all of Rio because well—they’re Kim and Kanye and have no respect for anything. There Kim stands, knocked up out of wedlock posing as Christ. C’mon!

Even the people standing around them don’t follow suit. No one looked at that pose and thought “haha that’s funny I’m gonna do it to”. Nope. Not-a-one. We all know they both have a huge God complex but this is just too much. They’re too much—and they’re breeding. I can’t take it. Can’t we ban them? Can’t we punish them or something? Can’t someone knock them off their pedestals (which they have no reason to be on anyway!?) What is happening in the world?!
You know, God, Jesus, Mary, Christ, Holy Ghost, St. Peter WHOMEVER! This was a missed opportunity for some smiting. Prime smiting position these two were in and nothing…not a thing. Ugh. I just hate wasted opportunities.

19-Year-Old Argentinian Girl, Daiana Sperdutti, Exposes Boyfriend’s Violence on Facebook

The way that information is disseminated in today’s world should be pretty obvious: the internet. Specifically: social networking sites. Even more specifically: Facebook. I remember the day that Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift at the VMAs. I had sequestered myself in the photo lab and had not watched, but within minutes of his outburst, my entire newsfeed was covered in “wtf Kanye!!” “not cool kanye,” “poor taylor, kanye is a dick,” and so on and so forth. Within ten minutes, I had the full story. All this, just from Facebook.

What I’m trying to get at here is that if one …

My Very Own Open Letter to Kanye West

untitledDear Pompous Ass… I mean Kanye:

You are a douche.  From the first time you entered the music scene with your first single, “Through The Wire”, you have irked me. Your over-the-top exuberance for self-indulgence has always been a sore spot for me.  When I hear your music on the radio, I have to turn it off.  Your new haircut?  Totes ridick.  

You, who are clearly affiliated with the hip-hop culture, claim that all hip-hop moguls are anti-gay.  You, Kanye West, a once self-proclaimed (well, everything, but that’s aside from the point) gay-basher claim that you only overcame your issues with homosexual individuals because your cousin was gay and you want to “love” him anyway.  You still openly consider this your “turning point.”  This clearly shows us your character, if nothing else. 

In the same breath, we’re also dealing with your plethora of identity issues.  Of course I am referring to your quip during a benefit for Katrina survivors, stating that then-President George W. Bush didn’t “care about black people.” 

You have always had a nauseatingly-inaccurate view of yourself, stating that you would one day (if not already) make it into history books.  You have also had made comments regarding your capability as a musician and producer, stating that should you not win all awards that you may receive nomination for, you would “really have a problem.”  (As if you don’t already.)  During the 2006 European Music Awards, you argued with the presenters of the Album of the Year award because you were not the winner.  Deja vu, you once again publicly apologized.  Your many fallacies have only pegged you to truly be the complete fool that you outwardly appear to be.  

Since you’ve been in the spotlight, you have always been a conniving drama queen; always blaming others for your vast ineptitudes and never admitting to wrong-doing, even if an “apology” had technically been issued. 

You appear to be the all-American, all-around good guy, no?

However, in light of all of these claims and despite my personal adversity against you, I hardly think anyone in their right minds could dispute the fact that your behavior toward Taylor Swift and her massive win at this years’ VMA’s was completely belligerent and uncalled for. 

“Mr.” West, I have to say: regardless of my disdain for you, I’ve always kept mental notation of your massive history of faux pas. 

Kanye West - a two-finger salute to you, and if you’re as intelligent as you brashly claim to be, you’ll know which fingers are specially reserved just for you.

PS – I hate your stupid sunglasses.
