    I did not know this was a thing. Now I wish I still did not know.

    If I can count on Kanye for one thing, it's making me laugh. Dude is a walking trainwreck. Absolutely hilarious.

    his new music sounds like it's trying to cop the fucking hip hop from Hamilton. God this sucks.

    Looks like Kanye was caught in a lie... with footage to prove it.

    Yikes. I mean Kanye was still slithery in this case, but NME didn't even watch the video or read the transcript apparently. The full transcript is in this Variety article:

    https://variety.com/2020/music/news/...pt-1203541363/

    The part about her "needing time to think it over" was in reference to Kanye's suggestion that she put out a tweet beforehand in support of the track, not using the line. In that same paragraph they pulled that quote from she says it'd be better if she kept silent on the issue. Kanye is slithery because he revised what the line was, to Taylor, 3 times in the conversation; each time she responds with a version of "you've got to do what's best for you".

    WTH is this popping up now?

    Amid all of the various musicians and institutions changing profile pictures and icons to a featureless black background for Blackout Tuesday, Kanye has changed his YouTube icon too... all white.

    He also was in a protest in Chicago and is donating 2 million dollars to the Floyd, Taylor and Arbery families so who gives a shit about a YouTube pic honestly? He’s made a fool of himself the past few years but he’s legitimately standing with protestors and giving money, IMO actions are a lot better than social media clout chasing lip service.

    i fucking hate Joel Osteen, but i watched Kanye perform his Sunday Service thing at that church awhile back, and, as a Christian, i was actually moved to pray.

    Kanye is nuts, but he's also amazing in a way.

    He is a strange dichotomy of a man.

    I'm not gonna dispute any of that or claim he was making a statement, it just caught me off guard, is all. End of the day i chalk it up to Kanye being Kanye and trying to get a rise out of people. *shrug*

    I’ve seen people on twitter saying that the whole MAGA thing was just what he had to do to get Trump onside to release some people from prison. Is this true? If so I guess that’s forgivable. I’m a total atheist though and I could never be down with the Uber Godly stuff though

    I actually kind of liked the song until the Travis Scott part... I can't stand this auto tuned vocal thing anymore.

    Yeah, I liked it, too. Travis Scott is his kinda brother-in-Law, so I guess that's why he's there. Or something.

    I didn't understand the beginning of that video, at all.

    that "opera" though or whatever... this is the first clip from it that I've actually seen, and... well, I don't know what I expected.

    No those people on twitter are just Kanye fans in denial....he said recently he would vote for Trump this year (if he was going to vote)

    I am still trying to figure why Snoop was posting pics in the studio w Kanye the other day after 2 years of destroying him and calling him every name in the book and even going so far as to have his cousin put a hit out on him 2 years ago......

    Kanye can die in a fire at this point, and the "lyrics" here are complete garbage. BUT....that beat is crazy.

    Kanye running for president? What’s the point of this as there’s states he’s too late to run in! Seems like a deal with Trump to drain away some democrat votes

    He’s an attention whore, straight up.

    Someone on Twitter suggested that he could possibly take black votes from Trump, which I thought was interesting.

    It’s likely that it’s far too late to be on any ballot in most - if not all - states.

    We already know he's a Trump supporter. Most folks in the African American community would not want to vote for someone who's not only demonstrated that he's a racist bigot but also uses aggressive police force to suppress peaceful protests. Especially not now. However, they might vote for the Democrats... ooooor another potential black president who (as a celebrity) they recognise and possibly even look up to.

    Let's ignore the fact that West believes that 400 years of black slavery was a choice. Yeah, that part's not important.

    It would not surprise me in the slightest if he got paid to do this.

    This Is America.

    We all know this is just some dumb shit to get his name in the news right? Oddly enough there’s been a full week or clothing/music announcements & now this? This is “press cycle.” Do/say outlandish shit, get everyone talking & then drop album.

    Unless you are black, it's best not to speak for the black community and we should sit this one out.

    There has been an exodus of the black community from the Democratic party. That’s how that idiot Candace Owens has sucked black people into her vortex of propaganda (with the help of Dennis Prager).

    I have a friend who thinks Kanye has done more for advancing White Supremacy than any other Black person in history. Hard to argue with that. I've also seen West compared to Dalí, which tracks — in the sense that they both started off as groundbreaking artists at the vanguard, then gradually morphed into self-parodies who openly & enthusiastically support fascism.

    Kanye would get my vote before either of the two other morons. I can’t believe I just typed that, especially since it’s probably true.
