I’m fully prepared to be the only one who feels this way, but I think we should take a moment to focus on something aside from Kanye West’s douchebaggery. Sure, he says a bunch of shit that most people can’t even begin to understand, and he’s fully under the spell of the Kartrashian/Jenner succubi cult, but he’s actually contributed some pretty great things to the world. Let’s take a moment and reflect.
If you haven’t seen it yet, Kanye performed in Paris a few months back, and he got down with his bad self. Although he’s been seen getting jiggy on occasion in the past, I thought that he was probably too cool these days to shake what his mama gave him. Boy, was I wrong. Thanks to the weird place that the internet is, Kanye’s hypnotic, robotic moves have been seamlessly paired with a bunch of different songs that will make you cry-laugh to no end. It’s even become its own Instagram account @dancingkanye, and already has more followers than I’d ever want.
Whether or not you agreed with him, I think everyone would say that Kanye jacking the mic from Taylor Swift at the VMAs that year was a dick move. But shithead antics aside, I think a lot of people forgot about how he shrugged before leaving the stage. What a gift! If you haven’t already, please take a moment and think of all the instances where shrugging like KW would be useful to you. Nine times out of ten, shrugging like Kanye has been far more effective than anything I could possibly say, and I do it on a daily basis. So for that, Kanye, I thank you.
Before Kanye went down the beaten path between Kim K’s legs, he was dating a woman who is now pretty famous in her own right. Sure, her real talents are pretty questionable, but dat ass! I won’t try to sugarcoat shit here, and just say that Amber Rose is fucking great to look at. If it weren’t for Kanye’s excellent taste in women, we would have never seen as much of her as we do now. Pretty safe to say that Kanye, not unlike myself, is quite the ass man.
I really can’t stand kids, but Kanye’s daughter is cute as hell. It’s only once in a very blue moon that anyone’s child makes me do anything but cringe. North West is one of those kids that invokes my untapped father instincts, and makes me think “Holy shit, do I need to have kid?” Lucky for me, and the rest of the world, I know better than to purposely have another little me running around. No one needs that. But this kid is so damn cute, I was even able to get past the weird, typical celebrity name that he and Kim gave her.
I’m just gonna go there and say that Kanye’s music is good enough for him to be as famous as he is, even though I’m sure plenty would disagree. 808s & Heartbreak is still one of my favorite albums ever, and it really broke new ground in hip hop, and music in general. I won’t lie and say that his music isn’t fucking weird a lot these days, but it’s still good most of the time. He can totally fucking keep all the singing that he’s been up to, because no one asked for it, and we all wish that it never happened.
Now that I got all of that off of my chest, I don’t feel so guilty about constantly being annoyed by him, after being a big fan for quite some time. That being said, Kanye, cut the shit, and stop being such a dickhead, so that we can at least try to like you again..
