I really want to like Kanye West. I want to believe that what he’s saying makes sense, that he’s a powerful symbol for the black community and an inspiration for others that the struggle is worth it. Perhaps he is – to be honest, it’s not my place to say either way – but what I will say is that it’s a shame that so much of his message, or what I think he means his message to be, get lost in his megalomaniacal rantings and delusions of grandeur. It seems like not a day goes by that we’re not talking about some bullshit he’s doing, and today is no exception.
First of all, he had an interview with Sway on his Shade 45 morning show that turned into an utter disaster. A hilarious disaster, but a disaster nonetheless. Please let’s all keep in mind that Kanye and Sway have been friends since wayyyyy back in the day, like when Kanye was only Jay-Z’s producer and nobody at all to speak of. The way Kanye lost his mind when Sway asked a legitimate question is… beyond. The two were talking about fashion lines and it all went downhill from there.
Oh, dear. You can listen to the whole thing here and it’s well worth a listen – he screams “I am Shakespeare!” and continues to declare his own genius and rants about… I don’t even know anymore.
However, there’s an up side to this. Kanye rolled into Hot 97 and got called out by Charlemagne, one of the hosts there. Basically, Charlemagne called him narcissistic and egotistical to his face and the results are AMAZING. Part one is below (with links to the other parts within it). Oh, Kanye. What are we gonna do with you?

Kim Kardashian is laughing at herself — who knew this was possible? She thought James Franco and Seth Rogen‘s Bound2 video parody was funny. Now let’s see if Kanye laughs along. If he does, the world will explode. The original video, featuring a topless Kim K bouncing on Kanye’s lap as he’s riding a motorcycle was so bad, it begged for parody, and Mr. Franco and Mr. Rogen delivered like Dominos.
You nailed it!!! Sooo funny! RT @Sethrogen: #Bound3 http://youtube.com/watch?v=Y3TTiHRrEBE …. Enjoy!!!!!!
With a link to the video.
Smart move on her part. Very smart.
Which video do you prefer?

James Franco and Seth Rogen are currently working together again on The Interview, and while they were there, I guess they decided it would be pretty hilarious to recreate Kanye West‘s video for ‘Bound 2′, which we all know was a trifling ass expression of… whatever. They really went for it in their version – it’s a shot for shot remake with the guys taking on Kim Kardashian and Kanye’s weird motorcycle sex and everything. It’s hilarious, and I’d venture to say 300x better than the original… even if Seth Rogen and his hair back does make me want to vomit in my mouth a bit.

Kanye West is asking New York City to boycott Louis Vuitton. Kanye, that’s not gonna be a problem. I can’t afford their shit, so consider it done. Why is Kanye asking this? Because the brand made fun of his awful video.
Kidding, it’s because the head of Louis Vuitton, Yves Carcelle, didn’t want to meet with him. And in Kanye’s world, this is the next step.
Here’s more from TMZ:
Kanye was on 92.3 NOW radio station moments ago when he handed down the edict, saying, “Everybody in New York City right now, don’t buy any Louis Vuitton until after January.”
LOL I love that he gives us a timeframe. Okay, Kanye. You got it. No LV until after January. Sorry they’re not rolling over like Zappos for you.

I got into this giant argument with the head of Zappos that he’s trying to tell me what I need to focus on. Meanwhile, he sells all this sh-t product to everybody, his whole thing is based off of selling shit product.
First of all, how the hell did this conversation even come about? Was Kanye trying to order shoes for his Gigli music video when this happened? Anyway, the head of Zappos, Tony Hsieh, was thrilled to be insulted by Kanye and really ran with it. He posted this:
Yes, it’s true that we sell sh-t product. Check out this link: http://www.zappos.com/product/8327195. And it’s a bargain at $100,000
I’m really loving this new phase in Kanye’s life.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian acted as human food poisoning yesterday when millions flocked to their toilets to throw up their lunch after watching the couple in Kanye’s video for ‘Bound 2′. Admittedly, my first thought upon watching (full admission: I could not make it through the entire thing; it was too nauseating) was “These are someone’s parents”, followed by pity for poor North West and what she’s been born into.
Well, listen – Kanye doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with putting on a glorified porn for the public, because Nori will have to see all that in the world anyway, so why not scar her by exposing it to her FROM HER PARENTS? Here’s what he told Ellen DeGeneres about it:
“We were just practicing [to make a baby] all the time. Practice made perfect.”
“I’m not as concerned with the idea of profanity or nudity, it’s more the messaging behind it. So [North's] going to be in the real world so she’s going to hear things and see things. I think she’s gotta be prepared for that.”
Uhh… that’s disgusting. I literally cannot see a single redeeming thing about this video or these people anymore. They honestly make me sick. That’s like saying you should keep your door open and fuck in front of your kids to prepare them for the idea of sex in the “real world” (EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE CHILDREN). Like… WHAT? I wish DCFS would come and take this poor kid away.
