OK Kanye, We’ve Had Enough.

Thumbnail image for killing-kanye.jpgI loves Kanye West, Lord knows I do. I've even defended his mania on occasion. But there are moments like this when I don't quite mind disowning the brother. Entertainment Weekly had the gumption to rate the Seattle stop of his Glow in the Dark tour a B+ and Kanye raised holy Hell on his blog, responding "What's a B+ mean? I'm an extremist. It's either pass or fail! A+ or F-! You know what, f*ck you and the whole f*cking staff!!!"

Wow. He reminds me of those renegade commenters we get on this blog every once in a blue moon, that fail to see the overall props or humor in an item and choose to isolate one remark that isn't 100% affirmative in order to launch into an immature, misguided tirade. I mean seriously, if I, for example, like all but one song on your album, does that make me hater? For real? Also, doesn't the fact that he's so upset about what EW has to say means he puts too much stock in them? Otherwise, why would he give a damn? Note to Kanye: Find the cure for AIDS, find Bin Laden, and turn water into wine. Then we'll genuflect.

This dude truly hasn't aged past six. If there were any questions about who's really writing his blog, I guess we have our answer now. To his credit, he kind of apologized, but it was so disingenuous it doesn't quite undo the damage. Uncensored intel after the bounce.

Yo,
anybody that's not a fan; don't come to my show. For what?! To try and
throw ya'll two cents in? Ya'll rated my album shitty and now ya'll
come to the show and give it a B+. What's a B+ mean? I'm an extremist.
It's either pass or fail! A+ or F-! You know what, fuck you and the
whole fucking staff!!! I know I shouldn't dignify this with a comment,
but the reviewer threw a jab at all the artists. I just wanna know when
was the last time you enjoyed yourself. If you can't have fun and lose
yourself at this tour it's a good chance you're a very miserable
person. I actually feel sorry for you guys. Your job forces you to not
have fun anymore. Grab a drink, holla at some nice girls, and party
bitch!! You don't know shit about passion and art. You'll never gain
credibility at this rate. You're fucking trash! I make art. You can't
rate this. I'm a real person. I'm not a pop star. I don't care about
anything but making great art. Never come 2 one of my shows ever again,
you're not invited and if you see me...BOW!! This is not pop, it's pop
art!

  1. I have to agree. He really is immature as hell. Everytime he acts like a child I lose a little more respect for him and become less of a fan

  2. When he crowned himself and Justin Timberlake as the new Prince and Micheal Jackson, I was officially finished taking anything he says seriously. However, my inner stan makes me think this is all some marketing gimmick. He always said that he admires diddy, and this is taking bitchassness up a notch.

  3. I've been done w/him for a long time. He gets tuned out. He's an adult and this is another sad, childish display. It's too bad because he's a talented producer.

  4. This is kinda small compared some of Kanye's immature shows of disapproval. Kanye, mmmhhh. He is a Talented producer, so you wanna respect him, but, as soon as you fix your mind to do so... He just comes along and screws it up.

  5. LOL @ the comments on his post, some probably think he immature but all over him because he blogs etc.I tell you people are something these days.

  6. This rant was sponsored by Cocaine.
    Everyone nose!

  7. "...in other news, it has been brought to our attention that Kanye's period arrived shortly thereafter and his latest outburst can be categorized as merely a symptom of PMS hormonal imbalance. His publicist announced that he will be issuing a formal statement apologizing for his latest hissy fit on Tuesday.

  8. Wow. The word "Stan" doesn't even begin to describe the commenters at Kanye's blog.
    How do you write a whole post whining about how someone doesn't like you enough, then call someone ELSE is a bitch?

  9. Avatar

    is it any wonder he's not engaged anymore. How did Alexis put up with him for so long, I mean she already has one child?

  10. Lol. You gotta love Kanye though. I love this moments he has, cuz not many people are bold enough to let people know their true feeling like that. Although he should really learn how to phrase his disgust with some diplomacy. But still I love them moments. A tiny bit of me wanted to see what he would have done if he hadn't won a grammy. On a related note. I think a b+ is kinda harsh. The dude pulls out all the stops.

  11. what many may not consider is that kanye is a perfectionist & puts so much of himself into his projects. i'd take offense as well, if more often than not, someone with a loose opinion perts to no relevance, doesn't appreciate my work, and denigrates its value. give credit when its due. thats really what he's opining for.
