In NYT article , compares himself to Steve Jobs " I am undoubtedly, you know, the Steve of Internet, fashion, culture, period ", the forthcoming baby "This is my baby. This is America's baby", and calls himself, " the Michael Jordan of music". Kunty please !!!
Kanye be chillin` an` illin`.
This is the kind of shit that the media deliberately portrays as legitimate and worthy.
I know a couple of people who used to swear that Kanye was deeply and importantly talented.
Once he went with the Kardashians they stopped saying that.
He's done, over, finito.
He never 'was' - h only thought so
He calls himself "Yesus". Bitch please.
Can't stand the sight or sound of him.
He is not good looking at all.
When Kim walks her big butt cheeks rub together and are always screaming out "Jesus!". Kanye may think some unseen deity is calling out to annoint him.
What is it with black celebs inflating their intellectual capabilities when they are dumb as dirt?
Will Smith said he was a physicist.
Kanye says he's like Steve Jobs. Please bitch, you're nothing. You're both rich but both dumber than dirt.
That poor poor child. Having such to start life with such disadvantage.
He does seem mentally ill - and I don't know how anyone who thinks they are all that could be with a used up skank like Kim.
I have to hand it to Kim, she has secured a spot in the media spotlight for the next several years by getting pregnant by him. You just know a years long child custody battle is up the road. Will further expose what a nutcase Kanye has been since his mom died, as if we needed further proof.
I think it's a problem with suddenly becoming wealthy. They don't know what to do with it all and end up getting an entourage because that's what other nouveau riche slebs do. When they are surrounded by people who will never say no and will give constant adulation (as long as payday comes round) there is no connection to reality and they start thinking they actually matter.
Look at the atrocious cuntishness of Bieber. Kanye is just another delusional puppet who thinks he's a real boy.
It ain't just black high-school dropouts puttin' on airs. Brad Pitt is an architect and Tom Cruise an expert on psychiatry, dontcha know.
That said, fat-faced Connie-Boo looks a right r-swipe in that pleather kilt!
Me thinks this might be about Kanye...
He May Be The Ultimate Narcissist
[Blind Gossip] This musical celebrity cheated, he knows it, and he is totally lying about it.
Some of you may be wondering: Why would a famous celebrity – who has both a real significant other and a fake significant other – cheat on them both?
Well, in the case of this celebrity, the answer comes straight from a close business associate who has the inside scoop. The simple answer would be to say that he is constantly horny. The more complex but accurate way to explain it would be to say that his cheating is not so much about his sexuality as it is about his narcissism!
One of his business associate – a very respected person in the music industry – explained it to us this way:
“He really does think that the world revolves around him because he is convinced that he is so special. Everything that everyone else is and does and says is valid only in the context of whether their actions support or oppose the grandiose view he has of himself.
[Of course he cheated] but of course he is going to lie about it! He thinks that everyone (man or woman as long as they are very beautiful or talented or famous or special in some way) should want him sexually! Everyone should respect his superior talent! Everyone should only say things to him that he wants to hear! Everyone should only take photos of him when he wants them taken! Everyone should believe everything he says [whether it's true or not]! In his opinion, anyone who doesn’t do these things or believe these things or act the way he thinks they should act is either stupid or ungrateful or unworthy or a loser and deserves to be attacked or ignored by him.
[His business associates] know all this about him and we know that he can turn on the superficial charm and act all nice to get what he wants. [But we also know] that it’s just temporary and superficial and that he is really just empty or angry and doesn’t genuinely give a sh*t about anyone except himself. [I hope that this helps] you understand why he cheats and lies about it and also why doesn’t have any real friends. It’s all about him using people to get what he wants all the time and getting angry and lying if it doesn’t go exactly the way he wants it to go. He is incapable of behaving differently!”
His behavior sounds like it is may be the definition of narcissism. Perhaps we should think of him as someone who is ill, rather than as someone who is simply a lying, cheating, arrogant, angry jerk?
Who are the retards that buy this asshole's "music"?
He'll eventually end up institutionalized. He is ill, and no one around him wants to do anything about it, in typical fashion.
The fact that he is especially disgusting and egomaniacal makes his illness especially unsympathetic. One hopes that videos of his dl habits get out, and that he drives drunk-and-stones for the cops at some point, with a camera capturing the arrest.
r14 - you are totally right, my fault, I forgot about Hick Pitt, Gwynnie Goop and almost every OTHER celebrity out there. AFAIC - they are all idiots! TY for reminding me!
Kanye has never gotten a DUI he may be a lot like Tom cruise incapable of feeling I think most sociopaths do not enjoy drinking and/or drugging
Barack Obama publicly called him a jackass. Nothing he can say or do will ever change that.
(By the way, I loathe Will Smith, but he did go to MIT - he's not stupid.)
[quote]By the way, I loathe Will Smith, but he did go to MIT - he's not stupid
Will Smith did not go to MIT. He didn't even apply.
From his interview at the link below:
RD: Is it true that at one point you were planning to go to MIT?
Smith: My mother, who worked for the School Board of Philadelphia, had a friend who was the admissions officer at MIT. I had pretty high SAT scores and they needed black kids, so I probably could have gotten in. But I had no intention of going to college.
He CLAIMS he had "pretty high SAT scores" & he also claims he's a physicist looking for patterns (scientology-speak).
In Wikipedia, he pretty much says that his mother had connect at MIT and they would have accepted him since they were "looking for black kids".
But he was never accepted into that & according to him he was doing his "acting" career instead.
He'll be a scientologist soon enough like Will Smith, Jada, Jaden & Willow.
Apparently the clams want the Kardashians & Kanye, Kyle Jenner is studying scientology with Jaden, I would not be surprised if they already nabbed Justin Bieber & his fundy mother already.
He is the ultimate troll. The God complex and narcissistic persona is all a gimmick. He always says something outrageous when he has something to promote.
By referring to it as "America's baby" is he basically naming the short list of potential candidates for father?
Wow R21,a president publicly said `ass`.
I think it's plainly clear Kanye has crossed over from narcissist into sociopath.
So is he top or bottom with his eye-talian designer boyfriend?
the guy is hiding in plain sight, right?
He is SOOOO fucking gay.
But watch out,this is a thread about how Kanye is allegedly mentally ill, so if you derail it into the `Kanye West is gay` direction it will look as if you`re equating the two...watch it.
Isn't he supposedly involved with the designer of Givenchy, Ricardo Tichi (sp?)?
I think Kris and Kim are regretting their choice for a baby daddy. A-Rod would have been better, but he wasn't interested. Meanwhile, Reggie Bush, the love of Kim's life, is marrying her younger look-alike, another Armenian but one who, at least for now, shuns the spotlight.
Kanye West has always compared himself to someone he's not. The guy is just a no-talent, dime-a-dozen rap performer.
And, getting involved with Kim Kardashian shows his limited character.
Already news that Kanye cheated on Kim Kardashian? I say the news was fake in the beginning.
Kanye's "cheating" is part of the contract. Look for them to "break up" soon after the birth of the demon spawn and for a tabloid headline grabbing custody battle to ensue.
Anything to boost ratings.
He's fucking deranged!
R38 has it. The timing is excellent and it builds up nicely to a spread in the Christmas issues of US and People for Kim, valiantly struggling on as a single mother
Hmm, R38 - very cynically, but given the two people that we are dealing with, you could be right. I wish the tabloids would revolt & stop covering these two and they'd just be left with an ugly baby that neither of these two self absorbed a-holes really want.
Can anyone actually NAME a Kanye West song that has become a classic? Or even memorable?
"I think Kris and Kim are regretting their choice for a baby daddy. "
I don't know about that. Kanye will send money, give them physical custody of the sprat, and provide endless drama for their show.
Ratings have been falling, I think they're trying for some real drama centered around Kim. I don't know if it'll work, if the fraus who watch that sort of thing want to see a fat woman being ignored by the father of her child, they can look in the mirror.
Kanye be mentally 'illin`!
Re 41 'Damn' is right. Damn ginormus CANKLES !!!
R43 - the "lights" song but that's basically a Rihanna song featuring Kanye's second grade level "rapping"
r44 no Fraus watch that thing. It's the urban audience only. Read ivillage and then read Mediatakeout - the MTO people love them, the ivillage fraus don't.
MY BEAUTIFUL DARK TWISTED FANTASY is one the best albums of the past decade. A major work, no question.
LATE REGISTRATION and GRADUATION are both excellent.
808 & HEARTBREAK is easily one of the more interesting albums put out in recent memory, even if it doesn't always hold up its own weight.
His only album that hasn't really stood up is THE COLLEGE DROPOUT.
The guy is a major artist. Yeah, he's an obnoxious jackass, but you all are extremely shortsighted to trash his substantial artistic output.
Funny, I always thought of Kanye as the chess club nerd who is deperately trying to hang with the cool kids. He might copy the clothes, pick up the lingo and join in the bullying. But he will never really be accepted and the cool kids only let him hang around so they can cheat off him in maths exams.
r50 is mostly correct, about Kanye's oeuvre.
Doesn't change the fact that he's a meglomaniacal narcissistic closeted nutjob who's quickly personally unraveling in the public eye. He'll be in Britney territory in a few years. Mark my words.
The black Vanilla Ice
The College Dropout is a classic! And years from now I will be able to pinpoint starting an argument with a stranger about Kanye West's discography on the Datalounge as the point I hit rock bottom!
Is that six toes I see on Kim's foot in R41's photo?
Kim and Kanye are in love.
He sings with a big tongue and fat lips. That sound racist but I don't know how else to describe it. It's awful.
He's already in Britney territory.
He's an alcoholic who surrounds himself with yes-men who tell him how brilliant he is, and he has always had a very tenuous grasp on reality. He acts like a jackass in interviews (which is why he so rarely gives them anymore), and the press eats it up because they know it will make headlines.
I predict he'll have an even bigger collapse than he did after the VMA Awards a few years back, and that he'll disappear for a good five years like Britney did. When he comes back he'll be sadder but wiser, and we'll see whether his talent can really sustain him then.
[quote]When he comes back he'll be sadder but wiser, and we'll see whether his talent can really sustain him then.
What talent? Rapping over loops is talent?
So his pretentious high-fashion douchebaggery is to make the world a better place for all of us? He's as intelligent as he is modest.
I hate he press so much r61. They will literally run articles trying to encourage people to talk and reconcile about allsorts whilst gleefully waiting in the wings, knowing weeks/months in advance, steak knives out, for some star to crack or fall, and then run explosive or drawn-out day-by-day accounts of their misery or infidelities (which are 9/10 time of no concern to a.) someone being able to function/do their job b.) in the public interest at all).
R63, I think he's not a particularly nice man but I also think the media can always smell a wounded animal and will use all kinds of tricks and cons to try and force the hand of fate. Just for a story.
Maybe K genuinely needs help? And people around him/the internets are just enabling him rather than really getting to the crux of the issue?
Pitchfork wont allow that to happen r61. His their link between 'tard douche bag white hipsters and Hip-Hop/R'n'B.
He's the reason I don't care about black people.
The arrogance, and who he is, is all explained in the fact he walked into a 'stop sign', in Beverly Hills, on a bright sunny day - and blamed the SIGN, and the paparazzi, for it happening, and of course, threw a senseless rant
[quote]Is that six toes I see on Kim's foot in [R41]'s photo?
No, that is the underside of her foot. Looking at her swollen legs gave me the first twinge of sympathy I have had for this woman ever.
I'm loath to defend Kanye, because I don't even like him, but what is he doing that makes everybody think he's mentally ill? He is massively insecure and overcompensates and self-sabotages and so on, but that's just garden variety neurotic behavior.
Maybe his liaison with Kim is conceptual art, an explosive merging of media fixations and obsessions. This is in order to expose everyone's complicity in maintaing the authoritarian spectacle in which we all live, the fantasy life provided by late capitalism. Very SI.
