Could this goddamn reporter wipe the film of fog off his damn camera lens? Either way he did still managed to catch some new Kanye gold in this long-winded, vaguely delusional, awks speech on the power of the paparazzo. It’s well articulated and resonating well with the worldwide community of news outlets and listeners. But honestly, at certain points, West seems like that guy you’ll see out at a bar or club rambling to himself like a strung out madman on the weekends who dipped way too deep into the mind-numbing substances. Like he really drags this speech out bros, and I appreciate the fact that he manages to turn every question into an advertisement for music streaming service, Tidal.
Kanye even sheds some light on the fact that he’s supposedly taking all the heat for one of his co-worker’s computer activities:
“It’s funny because, you know, it’s obviously not my computer. I took a picture of it in the studio, and then everybody was like, ‘Don’t put that up.’ I was like, ‘Let it go up.’ You know, the irony that that was the site that downloaded a million of my albums…”
So there’s that. I don’t know, do we give Yeezus mad kudos for potentially just pulling an epic ‘fuck it’ move, or was this merely a staged interview for Kanye to apologize/clarify the Pirate Bay controversy, on his own terms? Probably the latter, but you know what, the new Kanye might actually make some positive change in the world.
