Kanye West VS. The World
You may know Kanye West from: his interruption of Taylor Swift at the 2009 VMAs, declaring that George W. Bush doesn’t like black people, his supposed Illuminati membership, assaulting a photographer at an airport, stopping everything onstage to make requests, his Twitter rants, his ALL CAPS blog posts, getting mad at the Today Show, comparing himself to Hitler, and more. But did you know he also makes great music?
Kanye West is a villain. He is hip hop’s Darth Vader. The Voldemort of the music industry. The Tom Cruise of real life. The only person to have ever made Regina George feel personally victimised. That’s how the media portrays him, at least. Regardless of how good his intentions are, the media is quick to find the negatives in everything Kanye does. Given his reputation, most people believe them too. Even an act of pure goodness can be demonised to make Kanye be the narcissistic, controlling, ego-driven maniac so many people want him to be.
