I don’t know when exactly the switched flipped in Kanye West‘s brain that turned him from an incredibly focused, prolific artist to a raving lunatic, but I’m sick of it, and I think it’s pretty safe to say the rest of the world is, too. After his latest stunt at the Grammys on Sunday, Kanye felt the need to make waves again on Wednesday during an interview with Ryan Seacrest, where he revealed that he’s planning to go into the studio with none other than Taylor Swift.
Would you collaborate with Taylor Swift?
Yeah, she wants to get in the studio and we’re definitely going to go in. Any artist with an amazing point of view, perspective, fan base, I’m down to get in the studio and work. I don’t discriminate, I don’t have an elitism of music because of like how many Grammys or you know, the amount of ratings you get on an album. I that think everyone loves music whether they love hip-hop, alternative, country, and if I could be involved in giving people any type of energy, advice in the studio, whether you’re Beyonce, whether you’re Taylor Swift, whether you’re Jay Z, whether you’re Beck, whoever, and they can be reciprocal with that, I’d like to be involved with that.
Oh, so now Taylor Swift counts as an artist? Fuck off, Kanye. He’s not a music elitist, but Beyonce is the best artist of all time (besides himself, natch) and Beck doesn’t count? This guy is the worst. What’s even worse is the fact that he clearly lacks self-awareness so severely that he doesn’t even realise the ridiculousness of the crap coming out of his mouth.
Let’s hope this collab never comes to be. I know Taylor has her own issues, but I’d hate to see her lower herself to this bullshit – and it IS bullshit.
