I like Kanye West. I do. His music is pretty amazing. But, I mean, he has mental problems. And he is an arrogant, narcissistic prick who is self-important and completely absurd. Example: This latest scandal. Wal-mart doesn’t want to put his album cover in their stores. See? Kanye West twitted about it. That’s how important it is.
Banned in the USA!!! They don’t want me chilling on the couch with my phoenix! My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy…In the 70s album covers had actual nudity… It’s so funny that people forget that… Everything has been so commercialized now…In all honesty … I really don’t be thinking about Wal-Mart when I make my music or album covers…I wanna sell albums but not at the expense of my true creativity…So Nirvana can have a naked human being on they cover but I can’t have a PAINTING of a monster with no arms and a polka dot tail and wings…I know that cover just blew yall minds … I wish yall could see how hard I’m smiling right now!!!
First, Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit is a classic. Second, it is a baby. Third, I mean, what does Kanye West expect? I don’t want that as an album cover. It looks so stupid. I mean, I have scrap markings on my wall that look better than that. IT IS A BROWN MONKEY MONSTER, DRINKING A FORTY, WITH AN ARMLESS WHITE THING ON HIS LAP! WHAT DO YOU EXPECT, KANYE!
Some people this isn’t a big deal.
Perhaps executives at Wal-Mart are indeed right this minute fanning themselves in maidenly horror at the cover image of West’s forthcoming album. Or maybe there’s nothing like an old-fashioned censorship controversy to pique interest in whatever is The Man is trying to hide. If West wants people to listen to what’s inside his album, why not drum up some extra attention by doing what he does best — picking a fight? Cue to 24 hours after his initial tweets, and the new album has been mentioned on every entertainment column in the country.
Nah. He’s just retarded.
