Why do people like Kanye West so much? I don't get it.
probably because I have 'age related racism'
Blimey, it was a meh! joke, why the capitalisation?....... I cant distinguish between them....If I said this people normally, people would say 'racism' and yet I also cannot recognise Taylor Swift or Lana Delray, because Im not into their music.
Im probably not into their music because 'I am old' and do not feel the need to 'keep abreast' with all the latest pop stars.
You're a white, middle class, psychopathic boat-race fan who is threatened by his amazing ears for a good track.
a kanye tumblr posted last call so i pressed play. i would like this to get 300 replies but nobody on dis takes kanye seriously because as a poc his important views are mocked. 😬
theres a lot of criticism from yedoubters who say that he doesn't speak out ENOUGH but whenever he does the press desperately try to put him in, what they consider to be, his place and never let him forget it
just cause he's a high profile black celebrity doesn't mean he has to be a spokesperson for black americans. people really want him to say something about ferguson, though. probably more now cause his wife and her sisters didn't acknowledge not-even-a-minutes silence led by his mate common
It just makes me laugh. His voice is fucking ridiculous.
I typed out a thread on the music board about bands I don't get and kanye was one of them. but I decided not to post it because talking about music is really boring.
wearing deodorant for the first time in a week or so. wearing kanye on my tshirt and hoping he gives me strength
I mean he's made some decent tunes/albums but aren't they a bit... accessible? I'm not even particularly into indie, but I'd rather be caught listening to something a bit more challenging.
forgot about that.
I just don't really get the amazing love for his music.
Although his calling out of Dubya for racism is just the best thing ever.
No self awareness
He's a great great pop star
He comes over a bit slow
