The internet loves Kanye West because he is the gift that keeps on giving. In fact, the internet loves Kanye almost as much as Kanye loves himself.
Every time he opens his mouth he seems to say something so stupid, egotistical and douchy that you can’t help but wonder if he even has a filter between what he thinks and what he says (assuming he is capable of thinking).
Kanye West seems like a a douchebag. He has done so many douchey things that it’s not even news any more, it’s just Kanye being Kanye.
Kanye West is so down to earth in interviews
When you’re famous, there must be nothing better than having your ego boosted by everyone and anyone. Interviews are the perfect opportunity to boost your own ego though and let the world know just how brilliant you are.
In an interview a few years ago Kanye actually said “I realize that my place and position in history is that I will go down as the voice of this generation, of this decade.” Who would have guessed that the voice of a generation would be in auto-tune?
Also, lets not forget the time when he told VH1 about his biggest regret in life, “my biggest regret in life is that I will never be able to see my self perform live.”
Then there’s that time he let everybody know how inspirational he is, “I bring up historical subjects in a way that makes kids want to learn about them. I’m an inspirational speaker.”
Oh and that time he compared himself to Jesus and thought he should be in the Bible “I changed the sound of music more than one time… For all those reasons, I’d be a part of the Bible.” Then he released an album titled Yeesus as proof that he is in fact, the self-proclaimed Jesus of our time.
Whether he’s comparing himself to Jesus, ranting about being the “most influential of all time” or having a meltdown on social media, he always seems to be offending someone.
In an industry obsessed with image, Kanye has the image of an A grade douchebag.
Kanye West is a douchebag at award shows
Whoever sends out invites to award shows should seriously consider banning Kanye from attending anything ever. Its almost like he sees all the people and cameras as a calling to take his arrogant doucheyness to the next level.
2004 American Music Awards
After losing out to Gretchen Wilson in the Best New Artist award, West stormed out of the AMAs in a show of protest. He later told reporters, “ I was the best new artist this year.” In true Kanye fashion, he then went on to declare a massive conspiracy against him before he questioned the award show’s voting process.
2005 Grammy Awards
Kanye made his feelings of persecution known once more during a massively self-serving Grammy performance. Just minutes later, his album College Dropout is named Best Rap Album, at which point West gives a hyper-cocky speech that ends with him proclaiming, “A lot of people were wondering what I was going to do if I didn’t win anything.”
2005 Preemptive Strike at Grammy Awards
Kanye got in early for this one. A week before Grammy nominations are even announced, he gave an interview to MTV News in which he threated to have “a real problem” if Late Registration doesn’t win Album of the Year. He then predicted that it won’t win because of comments he made about George W. Bush. He also had a go at magazines for not bestowing “classic” status on his albums. Oh, and he compared himself to Tom Cruise for some unknown reason.
2006 MTV Europe Music Awards
After his “Touch the Sky” clip lost out to Justice and Simian’s “We Are Your Friends,” West leaped onstage and interrupted the duo’s acceptance speech, arguing that his video deserved to win because it “cost a million dollars and Pamela Anderson was in it.” Backstage, he continued his rant to the press by crying “I did it to be the king of all videos” like a little baby. How did that one work out for you Kanye?
2009 MTV Video Music Awards
Who could forget that infamous moment when Kanye stormed the stage and interrupted Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. “I’m sorry, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time,” he proclaimed as Beyoncé looked on from the crowd with a stunned look on her face. Even Barack Obama called him a “jackass” for that one.
2015 Grammy Awards
Kanye strikes again, this time interrupting Beck at the Grammys before launching into a post-show rant about talent, respect and inspiration. Ironically, three things he seems to lack himself. I’ve written a follow up post about it here.
He should be banned from awards shows for good. He should be banned from everything for good.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West marriage
Because he wasn’t able to marry himself, Kanye was forced to seek out a partner so obviously he searched for the second most shallow, egotistical waste of oxygen he could find in Kim Kardashian.
They got married a few weeks ago in one of the biggest “who gives a fuck” celebrity moments of the year.
Both of them are massive attention seeking egomaniacs but I would put Kanye on top. His ego is so big he probably watched himself on TV whilst consummating their marriage that night.
Kanye has compared their relationship to that of Romeo and Juliet. I’m not so sure about that but I think if they both kill themselves that wouldn’t be such a bad thing.
People have put Kanye and Kim’s names together to make Kimye, but I think a more suitable name would be Slunt.
Unfortunately Kanye isn’t going away. He loves the attention and now that he is married to a Kardashian he is going to be there, on your screen every time you turn on the TV or open a newspaper
The sad thing is that I actually don’t mind some of his music, the trouble is that his head is rammed so far up his own ass he can’t hear it himself.
