RE: Kanye West attention whore?
Can you imagine this becomes a new fashion trend among urban hip hop heads? Some of these shirts are kind of cool.

Years ago I had a snowman shirt and I got lots of opens from girls, I didn't even know what it stood for at the time. I've got plenty of girls numbers because of it though.

I think I'll probably get one of these shirts and rock it during the summer. It'll be a great opportunity for getting opened. All conversation is good conversation.

Aha Confederate gear reminds me of the time this philipino dude all decked out in Confederate swag was riding the bus to the local university. The looks on the manginas and feminist faces were hilarious. Of course instead of someone calling him out on it there was only passive aggressive remarks.

RE: Kanye West attention whore?
I really didn't want to start another thread on the retard.

But it is symbolic of how pathetic people are. Actually, how classless the guy is, but then how he is then the example that other losers follow and act classless themselves.

Apparently, Beck won some award last night and Kanye decided to White Knight on behalf of Beyonce. He is saying Beck should give his award to Beyonce. What the fuck?

So much bitterness. I am starting to think he married Kim to try and upgrade himself, since he carries around such a giant stone on his shoulders. He should have tried to marry someone with more class because Kim isn't much at all, like a younger version of Julia Roberts. She is a pretty classy lady who isn't an attention whore. But of course, someone like her would not have a guy like that. Before people go nuts, it isn't a race thing, he just doesn't have any class or dignity.

Kanye West used to be someone I looked up to, he appeared to have supreme self-confidence, and arrogance is something I tend to admire. My view on him has changed in the past couple years. Hollywood got him.

It seems like he abdicated his authority when he married Kim K after writing a semi-cautionary song about materialistic and shallow women.

Kanye doesn't know when to quit. Getting up on stage and faux interrupting Beck was pretty funny. If he'd left it at that people's opinion of Kanye would've improved a lot because it showed he's capable of laughing at himself. But throwing shade at Beck trying to white knight Beyonce after was pure faggotry.

Beyonce doesn't even write her own music. Everything she says and does is decided for her by her management team to make her record label as much money as possible, like her getting all on-board with feminism on her last album. I want a hit of whatever Kanye's smoking if he thinks she's an artist.

Meanwhile, this is the best thing that's happened to Beck in over a decade Laugh

Let's be real here, Beck is soft as fuck. We all know the most a guy like him would ever do is defriend him on Facebook and have a cry about it.

RE: Kanye West attention whore?
I think Kanye has some incredible style sometimes and I respect his zero fucks attitude but the guy is a clown. It's one thing to go on stage as a joke and leave right away, yea it was funny to all your celebrity pals but to say all that nonsense about artistry after is another. Beyonce is a complete joke, she has a team of people doing everything for her, all she does is provide her voice which is still heavily processed. She is not an artist she is a business. Beck is an extremely talented, multi-instrumentalist and is the type of artist that doesn't care about the mainstream, he's in it for the art - which is a real artist. I feel sorry for him for getting dragged into this whole media onslaught by professional attention whores.

RE: Kanye West attention whore?
1. Who the fuck is Beck today? Who cares if he was good ten years ago.. Give him credit for then. His relevance is not the same. I'm not trying to put him down as an artistic, but in terms of numbers
I'm not a Beyonce fan.. But don't try to downplay that she isn't an artist.
I'm not saying that damn near every artist doesn't have a team of writers... But she still puts in more than enough work.
Pop culturally and music culturally, she has made much more of an impact.

2. Kanye is a loser.... Kanye is doing better than you

3. Kanye has no talent.. Kanye has 21 Grammy's

4. Kanye is a coward... Kanye is the most outspoken artist out right now.

Kanye is an attention whore... His brand makes money off his words..


*... On another note. You see how Kim was looking at him while he was talking ..
Bet when she walked off , there was a puddle underneath her..

I'm probably as big of a Kanye fan as anyone on this board. The Yeezus tour was an awesome spectacle. I fondly remember walking around my campus as fall semester kicked off with "Black Skinhead" blaring in my headphones.

But the guy is a fucking retard. Marrying Kim Kardashian is cringeworthy, I don't care how you look at it. Half the time he opens his mouth he spew pretentious bullshit or says something idiotic. And there's no way around that. Furthermore, anyone, who makes a huge deal over Grammy wins is stupid. I don't even believe Beck truly deserved it this year, but shaming him, a world-class musician and songwriter who has been churning out classics for decades, is absolutely pathetic. Especially for a world-worshipped star like Beyonce.

This is the second time he's jumped on stage for Beyonce. First time it was hilarious, he ruined Taylor Swift's night. I don't give a fuck about Beck, but to me pulling the exact same stunt twice is pathetic.

Also, Beck's latest album was one of his best in years. I've been a fan of his since "Loser". I don't know if it was best album of last year but it surely was in the top 10. He's still relevant.

I don't think numbers represent artistic quality. Look at the idiots out there. More idiots than smart people, etc. Album sales just represent better marketing, if anything.

They just need to seat Kayne and fat ass further from the stage and a couple of under cover guys to tackle him before the stage. When you're fractured, all perspective is lost.

What I don't get is why is Kanye white-knighting for Beyoncé? It's one thing for him to react when he loses an award that he thinks he deserves, but it's another thing to throw a bitch fit for your friend's wife.

Basically, more of this:





Less of this:

RE: Kanye West attention whore?
Let's look at a little history, shall we?

On Kanye's first album, he quotes Beck. On his sophomore effort, he enlists frequent Beck collaborator, Jon Brion, to co-produce the entire album.

Yet you have millions of people screaming at their TV and computer screens, trying to explain to Kanye the music of one of his influences Laugh

What a coincidence that this happens as he's been releasing and leaking singles for his new album that's about to come out tard

This guy is playing the media and public like a fiddle, because people who "hate" him can't stop talking about him. As I already pointed out earlier in this thread, there's a huge discussion on the forum over every single thing he does.

Meanwhile he'll release his 8th platinum album in 11 years.

What does having a big mouth have to do with not being a coward?

Kanye is only able to act the way he does because he pays security to protect him around the clock.

What isn't cowardly about that? It's no different than a girl who thinks she can do whatever she wants to men because she has white knights and police to protect her.

Kanye is more feminine than Drake. He runs around in skin tight leather pants throwing temper tantrums like a 13 year old girl.

He's a drama queen and attention whore. Everything we shame in women.

Sad to see how far he's fallen off. Kanye is seriously a top 5 best hiphop beat-maker/producer and has multiple classic albums, but this shit is pathetic.

D-Respect explains it pretty well here.
