I’m a big fan of Kanye West’s music, and will argue to the death that he’s one of the most gifted artists of our generation. But when I saw there was a new Kanye speech circulating I immediately played out a script in my mind, with Ye saying “Even after everything I’ve been through, bearing the cross of being The Person Inside The TV, people still have the nerve to say that my video full of dead women used as decoration could be taken as dehumanizing women a bit. How can they not understand that I am an ARTIST, and that means everything I do is sacred and must never be questioned??”
And sure enough that’s pretty much all we’ve got here. The worst crime of all is being predictable, Kanye, step your navel-gazing game up!
