Kanye West: Love’s More Important Than Branding

His posts, frequently in all caps, would go from random, humorous comments to epic rants, to an 80-plus-tweet business plan for “DONDA.” He’s since scaled waaaaay back on the 140-character updates, and we’ll admit that we miss them. September 2009: Even with his noted troublemaking at past awards shows, no one — including West — had figured out by September 2009 that they weren’t the best places for him to hang out. What transpired at the MTV event is one of the most infamous moments in live TV, as he interrupted Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech for the Best Female Music Video. September 2008: Yeezy’s beef with paparazzi didn’t just Kim Kardashian sex tape buy start in May 2013, when he hit his head on a street sign while trying to get away from them. No, this battle of wills goes all the way back to September 2008, when West was arrested on felony vandalism charges at Los Angeles International Airport after he got into a skirmish with two paps and allegedly damaged their cameras.

Kanye West moves his own mountains at Toyota Center

It`s just reducing down the amount of information that you need. People say a design is the point where you can`t take anything else away. Yeezus was very, very designed,” West said. “I took a departure from radio and popular music in order to get this seat here. If I hadn`t made Yeezus, I wouldn`t be sitting here with this cool font at Basel right here.” It seems West`s studio sets are getting shorter and shorter, `Yeezus` has been his shortest to date with just 10 songs and a running time of 40 minutes, which differs from the usual 12-13 songs that West usually settles on.

Deconstructing The Grammy Snubs: How Miley Cyrus’ And Kanye West’s Antics Killed Their Awards Attention

Williams’ and Timberlake’s success speak for themselves — they’re charming, talented performers with longevity who can find acclaim for collaborations across all genres as well as within their own solo work. And, lo and behold, none of them come off as antic-ridden, capital-letter Celebrities. It’s not that West and Cyrus should tame their personalities for the sake of awards recognition. No one adores a dull pop star.

Kanye West’s Most Egotistical Comparisons Ever

He had launched into the fourth of five segments FIGHTING, RISING, FALLING, SEARCHING, FINDING in his touring Yeezus spectacle. His face was completely covered by a mask (as it was for most of the show). And it was all expectedly epic and sometimes confounding. What do I get in trouble for?
