Mr. West, Genius

So, I love Kanye West. I guess he’s not that popular which actually seems to have more to do with him being rude to Taylor Swift than being generally bombastic and absurd. I mean, he is obnoxious for sure. I personally don’t really care. (Remember the Rolling Stones? Bombastic and absurd is the point of rock ‘n’ roll, dudes).

So what if he’s a little ridiculous? He told W. what was what, his foundation provides music production opportunities to underserved youth, his rhymes are fantastic and smart, his Twitter feed is hilarious and he is as innovative and masterful in his personal style as he is on his albums.

Though he might not realize it, his particular exaltation of all things outsider and creative, his love of fashion, his rebellion and his heart, make him emblematic of all I love about queer culture. So, thank you, Mr. West. You are one of us, I don’t care what anyone says. I salute you.

How many times have people taunted me because of a color that I had on or how tight my pants were? It’s nothing. I’m at the point now where I can go to ABC Carpet and spend five hours picking out sheets, ‘cause I love colors, like teal and taupe and salmon … When I visited Wayne at Rikers Island, I had a suit on with some slippers, and the guard said, ‘Man, those shoes are amazing.’ And I said, ‘Yes, they are. I’m Kanye West.’
Look at how excited he is to be with her! How can you hate that?

wat is happening here?

is he apologizing to taylor swift via twitter

You know what, I fucking love Kanye. There, I said it. I liked him despite the Taylor swift debacle, and I still like him… I think that with the level of brilliance he has, you tend to be a little out of touch with reality.  I’m not justifying what he did, but damn, he acted in a moment of passion about MUSIC, which he is obviously deeply consumed with.
Now let’s move forward and give the man a break.

 My love for Kanye never abated. Obviously you can analyze the Taylor Swift fiasco from a critical race and gender perspective but even doing that doesn’t serve to demonize Taylor or Kanye. And while the VMAs pretty clearly weren’t the most appropriate venue, Kanye is just such a passionate dude who loves Beyonce like crazy and I can’t fault him for that.
