Kanye Becomes King So You Can Forget You’re Broke

Speaking of changing names, here’s a name change maybe we all can agree on. Self-obsessed Kanye West recently told Complex Magazine he’s changing his name to Martin Louis the King Jr. to embody MLK Jr. and his favorite label, Louis Vuitton. He demands everyone address him as such, but no one would blame you if you decide to call his Highness a “royal” pain in the ass instead. Along with the name change, he says he’s doing “crazy, bold stuff so [the public] can live through me and get their mind off the recession.” I don’t know about you, but every time I play “Love Lockdown,” I totally forget I’m under-employed and can’t afford decent health insurance.
