"Could Kayne be any more insecure? "


he's a whole hell of a lot of things, but insecure isn't one of them

it'd be nearly impossible to be as vulnerable as he is while being insecure

Attention-seeking and constant need for external validation is a hallmark trait of deep seeded insecurity. Are you seriously arguing otherwise?

he literally goes out of his way to advocate for other artists and one of his main points during his acceptance speech was that validation for art in the form award shows is dumb

I'm not sure insecure is the right word, but I dont know the word. He seems extremely confident I his self, abilities and decisions while at the same time bristling whenever others don't see that. Very similar to Michael Jordan and I don't think anyone would call Jordan insecure.

Insecure implies feeling bad about yourself vs worry how others see you, I think

Thin skinned maybe?

I really don't understand what people find appealing about her.

She's basically a fuck doll that can play pre-recorded sentences if you pull on the string. But I guess some people are into that kind of thing.

It's one thing to bang her for a while, but to marry her as a 'trophy wife'? She's one of the most vapid and brainless people out there. He could totally do better. Even Amber Rose could probably hold a better conversation.

I never claimed to know them personally, but it's not like either of them hides from the press or lives their life in secrecy. The image they've created for themselves is pretty undeniable. Kayne= angry black man that's desperate to be loved/understood. Kim= human Barbie doll that has everyday struggles just like everyone else!!1

The designs were awful, even for the wacky fashion elites. And regular folks who'd buy it for the label couldn't justify scraping together three grand for a sweater.

I don't know how he could have lost millions on the endeavor though. I thought it was just a fun thing, not something he actually expected to turn a profit.

I thought nobody would back him, so being the genius that he is, he put his own money / credit down for the whole thing.

I hope he loses all of his money so Kim leaves him and he has to go back producing songs for others, which is really what he was put on the earth to do

I dunno man.... Just looking at pure numbers of records sold, awards, successful tours, and a line of people wanting to work with him.... It's hard to say his music sucks.

nobody's been talking about kanye for the past few months so he had to get in the tabloids/headlines somehow to bring attention to his new album. pretty much standard operating procedure for celebs like him.

"that thing you like, yeah it sucks" is kinda a silly argument when we're talking about music, art, etc...isn't that all rather subjective?

don't get me wrong...you can dislike or like whatever you want. but reducing it to a "that artist's music sucks" is sorta dumb, imo

So looking at more objective measures, and not just your opinion, West is doing exactly what he is supposed to be doing with his music

808s? How can anyone enjoy something with so much fucking autotune...this current record probably included.

yes, because there's so much more to that album than auto-tune

including the reasons for using it

Auto-Tune/Melodyne, vocoders, and talk boxes (Frampton) are all fundamentally different things with different sounds and uses.

^ For the most part, I don't like when Kanye uses it. He has a terrible voice (that works for rapping)...and he uses it to be able to sing in a way that is tolerable to listen to...which I don't like. It sounds like AI trying to sing a song.

I honestly don't get the blind devotion to Kanye. He hasn't had a decent album in like ten years. He's a solid producer, but at this point, the only argument I'm hearing is that Kayne is brilliant because he's Kayne. And it's a stupid one.

Saw a kid on Teen Jeopardy that professed his love for Kanye, because "everything, especially his fashion"

The thing is, too, the people defending Kanye are generally saying "yes he is a dbag, but his music is great and if you don't like his music, fine"

Detractors are trying to act like his music is categorically bad AND nobody likes it, both of which are false.

Every album he's released has been critically acclaimed AND commercially successful (with the possible exception of Yeezus which was released in the early streaming era so harder to judge commercial "success")
