Ugh… I need to lie down immediately after writing this. Seriously – I feel faint and I feel disrespectful even addressing this malarkey.
The first bit of news is not Kanye West's fault, save for the fact that it's totally believable given all the nonsense and highfalutin comparisons he's spouting. A self-described "Global Global Satirical Newspaper of Record" called The Daily Currant published a spam article claiming that Kanye referred to himself as the next Nelson Mandela.
The quote, falsely attributed to Kanye, read, “Mandela was working in South Africa, which has, like what, six people? I started my magic here in the USA and then I took my business global. I liberate minds with my music. That’s more important than liberating a few people from apartheid or whatever.”
I can only say "bless his heart" so many times before I stop meaning it. I think I probably stopped meaning it about twenty "blesses" ago when it comes to Kanye West. The man's ego is out of control. I'd really like to sit down with him for just fifteen minutes to see if he really is as painfully egotistical as he seems. He could style me. I'd wear a crystal mask and report back the truth. It's an open invitation, 'Ye. You can even bring Marilyn MonroeKim Kardashian. No, no, don't bring her. Regardless, call me!
The tiny rapper has been especially douchetastic this week, throwing a temper tantrum on stage at a Florida concert and commissioning what I'm sure he considers to be the next, no make that the first and best, Mona Lisa. I'm sorry DaVinci, but Andy Warhol's niece? She's got the best painting of all time. Of all time! Bless his heart.
I always assumed Kim Kardashian's new blonde hair was in an attempt to look like Beyonce, but nope – turns out that's not the right blonde icon. Because according to Kanye West, Kim is the new Marilyn Monroe. I really just cannot even dignify that with a comment except to burst out laughing. This is your brain on egotrip, kids!
Speaking to Chicago's Power 105 Radio, Kanye continued to spout off in yet another insanity-laced rant. I mean it's bad enough he tried to say Kim is better than Michelle Obama (she's not), but now he's comparing his creativity to that of Disney innovator Walt Disney. “I’m more like, a Walt Disney or something.”
Nobody seems to learn that Kanye West doesn't take it well when his art is made fun of! Seth Rogen and James Franco just shared this hilarious spoof of Kanye's music video "Bound2", with Seth playing the part of shirtless Kim Kardashian.
The two were working together on the set of their upcoming movie "Interview" and decided to take a little break. They recreated the Bound2 video shot for shot.
I hope Seth and James are prepared for the Twitter fury that Kanye is about to unleash on them. They should've consulted Jimmy Kimmel first. Although he didn't say much after the SNL spoof, did he?
