Kanye's Rant, Last Night


Well! People are saying that last night's tiny Kanye West show was amazing, but when you listen to the clips of his ten-minute monologue, those are not really the sounds an audience makes when the preacher is on fire, or when something amazing is happening. (Although everyone does crack up when he thanks "the energy from the models." Because that is hilarious. And there's applause and enjoyment of it—just less and less as it goes on.) But mostly I think this is the sound an audience makes when someone has gone off the rails. (There's whole parts that don't make sense, after all! And anyone who spends ten minutes explaining "I don't give a fuck what you think" is obviously not telling the truth.) Anyway, we'll know more in about five hours when most attendees wake up!

He needs a new speechwriter. Too bad Sorensen died.

When you drop the best-reviewed album of the year and have your own listening party, you get to take the mic. Fair's fair.
Honestly, don't we like our artists a little eccentric anymore? Especially when they crank out great work? We put up with more from lesser artists all the time.
