I’m actually starting to feel sorry for Kanye West. When Britney Spears’ new song knocked Kanye out of the number one spot, he tweeted her, saying, “Yo Britney, I’m really happy for you and I’mma let you be #1, but me and Jay-Z single is one of the best songs of all time.” Apparently, Kanye West is not allowed to make fun of himself, because no one has a sense of humor, including Britney Spears. Spears’ manager, Adam Leber, replied to Kanye’s tweet, saying, “Thanks for “letting” us be #1. Much appreciated.” Can we all stop picking on Kanye West please? Enough is enough. The guy made a mistake, and his mistake actually catapulted Taylor Swift into super stardom. Also — give the guy permission to make a joke for goodness sakes.
Matt Lauer is a gigantic douchebag. I’m glad I opened with that, because I’m often told to get to the point with my writing. He interviewed Kanye West and, though I’m not a fan of the often ill-tempered Kanye West, I completely agree with his complaints about the interview below. Lauer opened the interview with questions about President Bush, referencing Kanye’s famous statement, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.” Kanye immediately apologized for his comment, stating that he thought it was wrong, and that he does not think President Bush is racist. But Lauer didn’t stop there. Instead of accepting Kanye’s apology and moving on to the next question, he continued to berate him, showing him another clip of the interview, and then asking Kanye to “look at his face.” I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — Matt Lauer is a judgmental prick in his interviews, and there is absolutely no reason to harass Kanye after he already sincerely apologized for the comment. It was cheap and unnecessary, and I’m surprised Kanye’s people even agreed to this interview, considering Lauer is known for this kind of low-grade behavior. And if you think I’m defending Kanye because I’m a loyal fan, you’d be wrong. I often think he lets his temper overshadow his talent. Not this time, though. This time his rage is justified.
Want to know the best way to get mentioned in the press when you’re Z-lister? Well, you bash an A-lister, of course. In a recent interview, Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes, discussed the current state of the music industry, and singled out Taylor Swift, as “talentless,” and a poor example of how everything “sounds and looks the same” these days. Did Chris learn nothing from the Kanye West debacle? Taylor Swift is untouchable, and unless you’re going to hop on the pop/country bandwagon, you better stay in your cave.
