Kanye West has a press-induced breakdown on stage
IT is fair to say that Kanye West is a highly strung man. At times, he’s unbearably sweet, while at other times, he’s absolutely barking mad. He switches between gloomy, accusatory and hyped to A.D.D., doing somersaults, look-at-me-everyone with the blink of an eye.
In short, he’s pretty fascinating to have around.
So after showing everyone his winkie online and disturbing Taylor Swift at an award ceremony, he’s now going insane at the press he so often courts. This time, his sights are set squarely on MediaTakeOut.
MTO ran a number of stories about Yeezy, including some (alleged) photos that featured him and his girlfriend Kim Kardashian. And so, during a show in Atlantic City, he decided to air some grievances and talk himself up while he was doing it. It is entirely up to you if you think he’s got the capacity for self-awareness or not.
“If you have something to give the world, a lot of times the press is trying to take everything negative. Just look at MediaTakeOut, they so fuckin’ full of shit!” shouted Ye, before continuing; “Show your motherfuckin’ face, so I can smack the shit out of you!”
It’s a little optimistic to expect an entire company to show their collective face on the spur of the moment like that. And besides, chances are, whoever wrote the articles invariably had their names next to the words about him and no doubt have a twitter account. In short, it isn’t hard to direct your complaint directly to the source. However, that’s not Kanye’s style… and he wasn’t finished talking either.
“I am flawed as a human being. I am flawed as a person. As a man, I am flawed. But my music is perfect! This is the best you gon’ get ladies and gentlemen in this lifetime, I’m sorry. You could go back to Beethoven and shit, but as far as this lifetime, though, this is all you got!”
Yes, but would Beethoven have it off with Kim Kardashian and invite Pusha T onstage with him? We’ll never know.
