Kanye West has been remarkably restrained considering he is going to be the father of a medica circus’ future little media circus. (I’m referring to Kim Kardashian, in case you have mistakenly time travelled from the 1800’s and stopped long enough to get your gossip fix.) He’s mostly been dealing with it by living in France, where paparazzi laws are very strict. Living there allows him a little more freedom and also gets him far away from Kim Kardashian, her annoying fame hungry family and her entire reality empire.
So when he flipped out today at a paparazzo, I’m on his side. Kanye and Kim were strolling around, trying to avoid the paparazzi when he accidentally hit his head on a sign. (My favorite part is that the sign read “WRONG WAY.” So true.) It looked like it really hurt. He lashed out, blaming the photographers, shouting at them to stop taking his photo. I get that. When I stub my toe or do something like that I will shout at anyone near me and blame them. “YOU ASKED ME WHAT TIME IT WAS AND I STUBBED MY TOE, THIS IS YOUR FAULT, YOU DISTRACTED ME.” It’s stupid, but I do it. I think sometimes we all do. We’re having a rough day and we’re annoyed.
But Kanye wasn’t done. He went back and then raged at a different paparazzo. He’s really, REALLY upset. It’s hard to tell if he was violent with the video guy but he was definitely angry, using a string of curse words. It’s kind of intense.
The thing is, Kanye, you chose this life. You know Kim wants to be in public 24/7 if she could, you know she’s going to attract paparazzi, and you know she’s not going to change.
But I hope your head feels better.
