Kanye West has had enough. He’s over being used. He’s tired of being disrespected.
Heard that one before?
Well, yeah. Dude melts down publicly every couple of months.
In an interview on Philadelphia’s HOT 107.9, Kanye said “I’m not gonna mention him no more, I’m past that… That’s out my thoughts. That’s lowering my priority of thinking at this point.”
But why Kanye? Why?
Still mad because he called you a jackass?
WASHINGTON POST: When radio hosts Shamara and Laiya asked Mr. West if he would ever “break bread” with the president, the rapper suggested that Mr. Obama had used him as a foil for political purposes.“Oh, you talking about how he use to come and visit me and my mama and tell me he’s about to run for president?” Mr. West replied. “I just think that we’re pop icons, and the president likes to use that type of thing just to be down. People was fine with me being everyone’s punching bag for about five years — ‘This is the person we love to hate, so if you want to distract people from everything that’s going on … just say you hate Kanye and there’s going be 30 other people who say they hate Kanye.’ That was kind of my position in culture and he kind of used that too — ‘Oh, he’s a jackass’ — because that’s how the world felt.
“I don’t care if someone’s the president or not,” Mr. West said. “I care about thoughts and how you helping people and what you bring to the world.”
For what it’s worth, I think I actually agree with Kanye on the whole “being used” thing. While Kanye’s certainly not the only “icon” the sentiment could apply to, President Obama has made a career out of using celebrities to help boost his street cred and Q score among key demographics. Without the pop culture stamp of approval, Barack Obama would have been just another out-of-touch Ivy League snob.
What makes this story priceless is that it took the craziest guy in an entertainment industry full of certifiable lunatics to finally call a duck a duck. Million dollar question – Do other celebs follow Kanye’s lead? Is Obama officially banned from the cool table?
Even better – Does Carney get a question about the budding Kanye-Barack feud tomorrow at the daily briefing?
