It’s Kanye‘s world and we just live in it, apparently. After ranting a heaping load of Lewis Carroll-style nonsense at a heckler, Mr. West decided he wasn’t done and that it was time to address something very troubling to him: his two Grammy nominations. Why is that troubling? Well, because Kanye thinks he should have a lot more than two. Of course he does.
During a show in Phoenix, Kanye went on this delightful tangent. Via CBS News:
I’m 36 years old and I have 21 Grammys. That’s the most Grammys of any 36-year-old. Out of all of those 21 Grammys, I’ve never won a Grammy against a white artist…And ‘Yeezus’ is the top one or two album on every single list. But only gets two nominations from the Grammys. What are they trying to say? Do they think that I wouldn’t notice?
Do they think that, someway, I don’t have the power to completely diminish all of their credibility at this moment? But no, no. Only positive energy, only positive vibes. But when you see me talking about what people are doing when I say ‘marginalized,’ when I say ‘boxed in,’ when I say ‘hold back,’ when I say people are afraid of the truth, that’s one example right there in front of you. And people come to me and congratulate me on those two nominations. [Expletive] those nominations.
Guys, he’s starting to remind me of Randy Marsh. He’s closeasthis to yelling, “STAN??? STAN???” at this next show. So between this latest rant and his bit about how performing live is like going into war, he really needs to just stop talking for a while.
I don’t see that happening.
