It's only fitting that on the anniversary of Johnny Cash's birth, we'd be reminded that the state of music in America is equal to the toilets of a truck stop Taco Bell. Leading this current bowel movement to turn this country's children into quasi-retarded, spoiled fame whores is rapper and father-to-be Kanye West, who unleashed a verbal tsunami of sociopath rage on Saturday night at his concert in London.
Apparently West is pissed off at the Grammy's again, probably because they wouldn't pay for his rib removal surgery so he could blow himself on stage to open the show, but the outdated and meaningless awards ceremony was only part of a rant that included gems like...
Since when was making art about getting rich? And I know it's easy for me to say this. And having money's not everything. And having it is.
Remind me why we in this shit? Why the Grammys can suck my dick? Suck my dick, bitch.
Remind me why we in this shit? I lost my motherfucking mom!
So, you gonna help me put on a better show, corporations? Can you please support me? Please? Me, Kanye West. I swear I'm a nice leader now.
I gotta call the business manager. Did the corporations send the check? What is my public rating? Are people liking me again? Enough to get some money from the corporations?
And I don't know what any of that shit means either, because West is worth approximately $90 million (and probably a lot more), but he was back at it again on Monday night in Paris, this time reminding his fans that he's better than people who are dead, presumably because he's not dead.
Per The Sun:
Kanye, who returns for another London show this Friday, was comparing himself to the most creative minds of the last 100 years, of course.
He shouted: "There's no motherf***ing awards or sponsorships or none of that s*** that can stop the dedication to bringing y'all that real s***.
"No matter how they try to control you, or the motherf***er next to you tries to peer pressure you, you can do what you motherf***ing want. I am PICASSO. I'm WALT DISNEY, I'm STEVE JOBS."
Pablo Picasso created "Garçon à la pipe" and "Nude, Green Leaves and Bust", which at a combined $210 million, are two of the most expensive paintings ever sold. Walt Disney created a lasting empire worth billions of dollars and holds the record for most Academy Award nominations and wins (although some people believe he was a Nazi, so Kanye can keep that comparison if he'd like). And Steve Jobs was an innovative billionaire whose legacy is a technology empire that is present in millions of American homes. Then there's Kanye, a rapper who cries about not winning Grammys and brags about dating an amateur porn star.
In fact, it's a shame that The Onion caused so much controversy with that cunt joke during the Oscars on Sunday, because Kunt would have made such a lovely baby name.
