The Soapbox: Kanye West May Be Arrogant, But He’s Also Right About Black Wealth

The Soapbox: Kanye West May Be Arrogant, But He's Also Right About Black Wealth

Over the past fortnight I’ve watched as a familiar narrative re-emerged around rapper Kanye West. Basically, Kanye’s an arrogant ranting asshole who needs to shut up, and stick to music. The end.

Admittedly, Kanye doesn’t help his cause. At times his behavior lends credence to what I think is a shallow theory.

Yes, Kanye West regularly makes outrageous statements about his overstated abilities and does silly things. But based solely on the Zane Lowe and Jimmy Kimmel interviews, Kanye’s fury can be distilled down to a single factor — he’s frustrated that despite his wealth, passion and accomplishments, he’s unable to start a joint venture with any of the major fashion companies. This frustration is deepened by the fact that he’s demonstrated he has influence over consumer buying habits and trends. Keep reading »

Kanye West & Jimmy Kimmel Kiss And Make Up

Kanye West & Jimmy Kimmel Kiss And Make Up
"Now as a celebrity, I’ve reached a ceiling."

Last night, Kanye West, clad in a serene light blue tunic, sat down with Jimmy Kimmel to clear the air over their whole “rap feud.” It was … interesting. First of all, Kanye, at one point, pronounces his own name the way the Kardashians do — Kan-YE. What’s up with that? After some early groveling by Kimmel, Kanye launched into a really long monologue of sorts (above, in two parts) about being taken seriously as a celebrity, the evils of the media, how he’s a creative genius, and, oh yeah, classism. It was really kind of epic and luckily, those busy little robots over at Buzzfeed transcribed the whole joint, which you can read after the jump.

Every Mention Of Kanye West In “KUWTK” Season 8

Every Mention Of The Apparition Of Kanye In "KUWTK" Season 8
Where's Kanye?

When it comes to appearing on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” Kanye West has a strict cameos-only policy. That means he refuses to be a regular “character,” and he even refuses to be mic’ed when he’s on camera … and he is rarely, and I mean rarely, on camera. There’s lots of talking about Kanye with very little actual presence of Kanye, so yeah, he comes across less like Kim‘s (future, at this point) baby-daddy and more like a weird apparition that may or may not take a physical form. The brilliant minds at Vulture put together this beyond amazing supercut of the Kardash klan mentioning phantom Kanye. “Ghost Of Kanye” is otherworldly and excellent. Please watch. [NYMag.com]

Woman Quits Job With Awesome Video Resignation

Woman Quits Job With Awesome Video Resignation
I QUIIIIIIIT!!!!!!!

Who hasn’t at one point — or many — dreamed of quitting their job in some sort of dramatic, clever fashion? Marina V. Shifrin, a video producer, was sick of insanely late nights spent creating videos that were only valued by her boss based on the views they received rather than the content therein. So, one night at 4:30 am, while stuck in the office, she decided to make one video on her own terms: an interpretive “I quit!” dance to Kanye West’s “Gone.” How much you wanna bet this video gets more views than the others she did for work? I’m happy to help with that by posting it. You go, girl. [via Thought Catalog]

  • Kanye West blew up at paparazzi lurking outside his house at 4 a.m, who were there to ask him about his dustup with Jimmy Kimmel. Frankly, after watching the TMZ clip, I don’t blame him one bit. Those photogs are just loitering in his driveway — at one point, practically going into his garage — and pestering him in the middle of the night. It’s creepy. [TMZ]
  • Zac Efron posted an Instagram pic of himself in Peru and thanked fans for their support. It recently came out that Efron had done multiple stints in rehab this year for drug abuse. [Celebuzz]
