The trouble with Kanye West is that he’s one of the few artists whose personal life/public persona keeps me from fully enjoying his music. I acknowledge that he has made wonderful music, I’m a fan of his, and I agree (to an extent) that he has been an extremely powerful and important figure in the music industry and pop culture for the past decade or so. There are certain records of his where I would agree that he is actually a genius, and no doubt a creative visionary.
But while I understand that the musician is now 2 separate people, the artist and the person, my dislike of the person he is actually reaches the level where I can’t treat his work with the respect that it deserves, and which he so clearly desires. His ego, the things he does, and the things he says, just taints the whole thing for me.
People argue that he lost his artistic credibility solely because he started dating Kim Kardashian, but I don’t agree. I think he’s been chipping away at his own credibility for the past few years, all by himself, even before his public disaster of a relationship.
I still date/go for assholes.
Clearly, the events of the past year have taught me nothing.
The boy that I politely turned down last year has apparently been telling his friends that I’m ‘the coolest girl ever’ and that he’s changing the places where he walks and stuff and the times he’s at certain places so that he can ‘accidentally’ run into me. Like dude, I feel you, but it’s kind of weirding me out tbqh.
And also, he just started texting me again tonight and I really do not want to lead him on because he’s a nice guy. But just ugh HELP
Today I almost crashed my Jeep into a snowbank like the REASON I DRIVE A JEEP IS SO THAT I CAN COMMUTE DURING WINTER DAYS
