Kanye's been blogging again. He appears to have been caught swearing on stage because his plasma screens were broken:
Don't believe the hype! When I started the show the other night we were having a lot of technical issues due 2 the heat. The 2 huge screens on both sides of the stage were glaring bright blue like when your DVD player acts up at home. I asked for them 2 turn the screens off 3 times because it was distracting 2 the show. The fans were not getting what they paid for. I admit, in my frustration, I did use profanity on the 4th time I asked. I stopped the show 2 go over and check it out myself. After the screens were turned off I started the same song from the beginning. The screens were eventually fixed 5 songs in but it was definitely better 2 have them blacked out rather than bright blue.
It's arguable if people who pay to see Kanye West actually think they're paying to watch the television instead, but never mind. It's the "don't believe the hype" that should detain us here - because Kanye is worried about how he's being portrayed in the media. Again.
Unfortunately for certain media outlets, you will never be able 2 'Michael Jackson' me. That means 2 make it seem like everything I do is so weird or out of place... they always try 2 make it seem like everything is about my ego! That joke is getting old. At a certain point you have 2 respect that I'm one of the last artist that still cares about the fans having the best time of there lives!
Yes. All the other pop stars - they don't care like Kanye. All the lad was doing was trying to stage-manage from centre stage - for the fans, whose little, empty lives could only form into some sort of meaningfulness for a moment or two if there was a big screen with a Kanye-mandated animated teddy bear or something on it.
We're not sure that Kanye is right using Michael Jackson as a verb in this case - one of us has clearly terribly misunderstood the Jacko story, which we thought was about Jesus juice and sharing bedrooms with young friends in a totally non-sexual way rather than swearing at television screens.
Kanye then goes on to crawl a little to the blogosphere, or at least the self-appointed kings of it:
Thanks 2 Bossip and Perez for taking it easy on me on the EW spaz... I did go in a little 2 much on that one. I'm sure there are some cool people who work over there and had nothing 2 do with that review. With all that said.... "I'm still the greatest!!!" lol!! Oh and I was in the studio with T.I. last night.... so get ready!!!
LOL indeed, Mr. West. LOL indeed.
