Kanye West should be, to borrow a term from his back catalogue, touching the sky this week after playing the Obama inauguration and debuting some shoes that he designed for Louis Vuitton. But people always have to get him down by doing things like hacking into his e-mail account, opening accounts under his name on the Internet phone service Skype, and impersonating journalists who have a piping-hot scoop on his forthcoming leap into the adult film industry. Wait, what?
Apparently yesterday a writer named David Watts (I’m guessing it’s not this guy, but who knows) was going around saying that West had given him the following quote during an interview:
“I know people will find that as another thing to hate me on, but fuck it. I’m open to doing porn. Hell, I’ll even do bisexual scenes—myself, another man and a woman, or just me and two women. I know people will find that as some weird but I am who I am.”
The quote, as you might expect, made its way around the Internet until it made its way to West—who, naturally, took to his blog to deal with this problem (warning, caps lock ahead):
YOOOO WHY WON’T YOU LET ME BE GREAT!!! I HAD THE TWO GREATEST DAYS OF MY LIFE AND WHEN I GET BACK FROM THE LOUIE SHOW I READ SOME SHIT CLAIMING I SAID I’M DOWN TO DO PORN AND SOME BISEXUAL PORN!!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE THE AVN WOULD POST FIRST PEOPLE BELIEVED THE TWITTER/STEVEN COLBERT THING, ROLLING STONE EVEN PRINTED IT!!!! NOW SOMEBODY HAS BEEN HACKING INTO MY MYSPACE AND SOMEBODY’S ACTUALLY HACKED INTO MY PERSONAL GMAIL ACCOUNT AND HAS BEEN EMAILING PEOPLE FROM IT… HEY WORLD I NO LONGER HAVE A GMAIL! I FOUND OUT I HAD TWELVE UNAUTHORIZED SKYPE ACCOUNTS UNDER MY NAME!!! THIS ALL IN THE PAST FOUR DAYS. WELCOME TO KANYE WEST WORLD! …. IT’S NOT OFFICIAL. I JUST GAVE THE PERFORMANCE OF MY LIFETIME FOR OUR NEW PRESIDENT … THEN I FLEW TO PARIS AND THEY DEBUTED MY NEW SHOES THAT I DESIGNED WITH LOUIE VUITTON WHICH WAS A DREAM COME TRUE. PLEASE I BEG YOU, GIVE ME A BREAK!!!!! PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LET ME BE GREAT!!! WHO HAVE I HURT SO BAD THAT THEY WANT TO DESTROY ME? WHO HAVE I EVER SPOKE ABOUT SO NEGATIVELY?

THAT UNDERMINES WHAT MY CONTRIBUTION TO THAT EVENT WAS AND SLAPS EVERYBODY WHO FELT UPLIFTED BY THAT PERFORMANCE IN THE FACE! A PICTURE SAYS A THOUSAND WORDS… LOOK HOW FRESH MY SUIT IS… NUFF SAID!
Surely the No. 1 suspect on this list has to be the shit-talking 50 Cent, who, you may remember, has an album coming out soon? (It’s OK if you didn’t; it would seem that a lot of people just don’t care.) Not only is he probably miffed that Kanye compared him to Ma$e (talk about your backhanded compliments), you just know that dude would think the “I’ll do bisexual scenes” bit was, like, a high form of comedy.
