Kanye West and Darth Vader

Yo, anybody that's not a fan; don't come to my show. For what?! To try and throw ya'll two cents in? Ya'll rated my album shitty and now ya'll come to the show and give it a B+. What's a B+ mean? I'm an extremist. It's either pass or fail! A+ or F-! You know what, fuck you and the whole fucking staff!!! I know I shouldn't dignify this with a comment, but the reviewer threw a jab at all the artists. I just wanna know when was the last time you enjoyed yourself. If you can't have fun and lose yourself at this tour it's a good chance you're a very miserable person. I actually feel sorry for you guys. Your job forces you to not have fun anymore. Grab a drink, holla at some nice girls, and party bitch!! You don't know shit about passion and art. You'll never gain credibility at this rate. You're fucking trash! I make art. You can't rate this. I'm a real person. I'm not a pop star. I don't care about anything but making great art. Never come 2 one of my shows ever again, you're not invited and if you see me...BOW!! This is not pop, it's pop art! [Kanye West - ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY'S NOT INVITED!]
And after some controversy with Kanye walking off stage in Houston on Friday....

Lupe Fiasco Darth Vader

Kanye said....

Don't believe the hype! When I started the show the other night we were having a lot of technical issues due 2 the heat. The 2 huge screens on both sides of the stage were glaring bright blue like when your DVD player acts up at home. I asked for them 2 turn the screens off 3 times because it was distracting 2 the show. The fans were not getting what they paid for. I admit, in my frustration, I did use profanity on the 4th time I asked. I stopped the show 2 go over and check it out myself. After the screens were turned off I started the same song from the beginning. The screens were eventually fixed 5 songs in but it was definitely better 2 have them blacked out rather than bright blue. Unfortunately for certain media outlets, you will never be able 2 'Michael Jackson' me. That means 2 make it seem like everything I do is so weird or out of place... they always try 2 make it seem like everything is about my ego! That joke is getting old. At a certain point you have 2 respect that I'm one of the last artist that still cares about the fans having the best time of there lives! Thanks 2 Bossip and Perez for taking it easy on me on the EW spaz... I did go in a little 2 much on that one. I'm sure there are some cool people who work over there and had nothing 2 do with that review. With all that said.... "I'm still the greatest!!!" lol!! Oh and I was in the studio with T.I. last night.... so get ready!!! [Kanye West - Houston I Love You]

He is a popstar though. Fuck you Kanye. You're a mediocre rapper and you have to deal with it.

since kanye is now claiming pop art i'm eagerly awaiting a pet shop boys collaboration.

What a fucking child.

no more Kanye West posts... please?

Posted by Anonymous | May 5, 2008 12:55 PM

what's the most distracting is his ridiculous use of the number 2 in place of the word 'two'. Talk about getting old. I know he wants to be thought of as a pop artist, but he comes across as a texting fourteen year old girl.

Here it is, folks. The rapper of the Y-generation.

Was that picture taken at Madame Tusade's or something? He looks like he's made out of wax.

still don't understand why is was never reported when he CHOKED on SNL last fall on the premiere... it's so fucked how media is controlled. It' didn't even make it to the west coast, but was live in NYC.

i liked the show, but kanye's people made us take down the photos i took, they (the photos) sucked a fat cock, they were taken w/my small handheld and after the childish behavior from kanye and his people, i don't think i can like kanye anymore

Eh, while I'm not into Kayne I'm even less into Entertainment Weekly.

Posted by Lars | May 5, 2008 2:04 PM

Kanye is the man. I'm sure he really gives a crap what people write about him on the comments section of Brooklyn Vegan. So it's you guys--not Kanye--that has to "deal with it."

Posted by Bernie | May 5, 2008 2:13 PM

is kanye an angry BV commenter or what?

Posted by Anonymous | May 5, 2008 2:13 PM

He is under a lot of pressure, he's got to play his crappy album every night...

Posted by Anonymous | May 5, 2008 2:22 PM

i have to agree with kanye. obviously i wouldn't have worded what he said the same way. All these reviews that these magazines do of live shows are bullshit. How can you quantify a live show to a letter grade. it's such a personal experience. its just stupid.

Posted by Anonymous | May 5, 2008 2:28 PM

maybe it has to do with the fact that he sucks and has absolutely no talent whatsoever?

Posted by Anonymous | May 5, 2008 2:31 PM

Graduation was awesome. The College Dropout was awesome. Late Regstration was awesome. What more can the man do?

Posted by Bernie | May 5, 2008 2:37 PM

i do believe at this point, he has his money right, and as displayed above, you can't tell him nothing, right?

"I'm sure he really gives a crap what people write about him on the comments section of Brooklyn Vegan."

Nobody cares about what we write here, I don't think that the people who are on BV expect anything else.

I love when people call themselves 'artists'!

Least Talented "Artist" Poll

Kanye
Dan Deacon
No Age
Kanye's stylist (Urban Outfitters/ Versace)

Posted by Anonymous | May 5, 2008 3:24 PM

but...but...no age just got a 9.2!?!?!?!?!?!?

Posted by Anonymous | May 5, 2008 3:29 PM

sounds like quite the meltdown...in both cases.

Posted by ryan97ou | May 5, 2008 3:39 PM

dont even try to put Dan Deacon on that list. Dan Deacon destroys.

And artists should expect no less than to be judged by the "people" or press. How else can the people know whats good or not? Letter grade is just a shortcut. B+ is a great rating too, He cant complain.

Posted by Anonymous | May 5, 2008 3:54 PM

Hah, that list made me chuckle. I don't like Kayne but Dan Deacon is much worse.

Posted by Lars | May 5, 2008 4:20 PM

"maybe it has to do with the fact that he sucks and has absolutely no talent whatsoever?"

What a completely ignorant statement! Get to know.

Posted by Anonymous | May 5, 2008 4:22 PM

clearly, he should have studied a little harder.

Posted by Anonymous | May 5, 2008 4:33 PM

Who is Kanye West? I've never seen his name on Gorilla v. Bear so I am a bit unclear. Does he sound like Television or The Velvet Underground?

Posted by Anonymous | May 5, 2008 4:42 PM

You guys are really funny. Those posts made my workday. Thanks for igniting a giggle from me, 'ye.
