I guess those SD cards that automatically, and instantly, send the images via WiFi to a remote server must be popular with the paps.
Camera smashed/taken/stolen? No matter. If the pics are good enough they;ll be worth way more then the camera and they'll be safe.
 
2008-09-11 06:32:40 PM
wow, at least he made it count when he wrecked the camera. at first, i assumed it was a pap pulling the usual "he broke my camera" trying to get money/attention/revenge for not getting the shot he wanted.

if this hadn't been in an airport, it probably wouldn't have gotten that much attention

Stay classy, Kanye.

I see, so they destroy someones personal property and walk away saying "there ain't no police" while the cameraman gets detained by security?
 
2008-09-11 08:44:21 PM
Tough to pick who to pull for in this one...paparazzi or Kanye. I think I'm actually happy for the lawyers who'll win off both sides in this one.

You the party's over when the old ass no nonsense
skull headed dudes of airport security show up.

I know that if I was in the same spot I would hate haveing the no life losers following me around hoping I did something that could net them a few grand.

I hope there is a level of hell just for paparazzi. You follow a guy around and annoy the hell out of him and then go cry to the police when he gets upset. I hope you die of cancer.

Kanye West does not care about pap people.

My wife works in a hair salon where all the celebrity magazines collect. I love how inside they have such ground breaking info like "The Stars are just like us!", w/pics showing them buying groceries and/or taking out the trash. Ugh.

Petulant child.

Sorry celebs, but when your fame, your wealth, your revered status and all the trapping that go along with it are built from the adoration, attention and cash of your fans you belong to them.

You are a publicly held entity.

No privacy for you.

The paparazzi are an inevitable side-effect of that.

You made your millions from the fans they're gonna make their money off the fans as well.

You want privacy?

Go move in with J.D. Salinger.

Okay Kanye, if you are that mean towards people with cameras, perhaps you should consider a career change. One that's not so glam-filled.

Uh no one deserves to have there life ruined by creepy people who think they are entitled to know everything about a persons life just because they might act or sing. This is an obsession that us Americans have to get over. These people make there millions because they are part of a product that makes 10 times the amount there making and feel they deserve an appropriate portion. Sadly in order to sell said product you need to sell an image because no one cares about content here. The image should be the only thing that gets face not the person behind it. There is a line and these a$$holes are crossing it just to make a quick buck. No one knows what started this incident maybe Kanye finally broke down maybe the camera man said something to incite him (they are known to pull fire alarms and evacuate a whole building just to get pictures of a celebrities baby). I'm not saying he's innocent cause anything is possible but don't make these greedy little idiots who don't have enough education to get a real job the victim they are as much to blame as Kanye.
Saying what you said is just buying into the excuse these tabloids sell you. It's the only way they can do what they do and not feel guilty.

He was detained a few feet away and both Kanye and his bodyguard were arrested for felony vandalism. LAPD was right there.

Who started all of this pap stuff? Where did all of this spycho tabloid crap start? anyway, If I was rich like Kanye, he really should invest in a good lawyer, and have him follow him and his body guards, after asking all of the pap to go away, start filing stalking charges left and right. God knows I would have done terrible things if it was this nuts to me.

meh, 3/10. Your slash indicates you want people to really think it's your true feelings, but your statement was so obvious that you want attention. so feel happy that when you ctrl F your login, for there will be something to be had.

Headline should have been "Antique Farm Equipment Rages Out Of Control".

So it isn't politically correct.
When Kanye starts acting like a human I'll respect him as a human.

True. But he did it like a pissy little girl, not like an adult man trying to make a point. I mean, I expected him to pout and stomp his feet like my 3 year-old niece.

There is! Corpadverticus, the new 10th circle of Total Bastards, was added just a few years ago. It's for lobbyists, marketers, advertising executives, tobacco executives, monopoly-law experts retained by major corporations, creators of office-based sitcoms...and, of course, papparazzi.

Well, dues were paid for that. Also, if you want to get technical you should probably throw Jamie Foxx in there too, since he was the one singing it.

No talent hack..

People.. really.. since when was being able to use a synthesizer, a drum machine and a keyboard pre-programmed with different sound effects "talent"?

Remember back in the day when a concert was a band actually playing instruments? The band members actually wrote the lyrics? Remember that?
 
2008-09-12 11:48:17 AM
Dude doesn't have a lot of money.
Why do you think he's flying commercial?
Read up on these rappers. They're leveraged to the hilt on future earnings and blow it all on crap like girly backpacks.

Damon Dash is one of the worst offenders pretending he's rich.

The Simmons brothers and Diddy are probably the only ones with real cash. At the moment.

If he was such a baller he wouldnt be flying commercial air and would be going on his own jet.

He is not even at the level of drug dealers, industrialists, I think even the Donald has his own planes and choppers.

Sorry Kanye you get a big FAIL

nice Louie backpack right? How do you like my fake tag I bought in patpong?

Dude, the Donald is a billionaire. I would also guess that Kanye is worth upwards of $50 million.

Not saying I am a fan, but I have seen the paparazzi around where I live and they are vultures.

Hey douche, you see this?

farm3.static.flickr.com

From nothing, try creating a bunch of birds chirping with that. Until then, you have not 1 clue how deep the composing/production/mixing/mastering hole goes, and you should probably STFU as your favorite talented guitarist probably uses these pre-programmed hardware FX modules that automatically, to you, void any talent within the area.


Kanye is an asshole. fark him. But he does have talent.

That picture is total bull. Some super complicated graphic you chose to make something look more difficult.

The process of trying to write entire songs part by part is certainly a difficult process (especially if your going for quality) but I would be willing to bet he spends most of his time piecing together little samples he recorded on some usb piano months ago. He's probably got a HD filled with clips and drum beats, he throws them together and he's got a rough track to sample out to some crappy ass rapper.

it's not as if he records himself playing real instruments for each track.

There should be alot of respect given for how complicated his work is, but it doesn't require the kind of skill that mastering an instrument does. It's more like learning the nuances of photo shop. as opposed to being a pro photographer.

No I believe that is a plugin from fruity loops which is actually considered a pretty dumb down drum machine program for newbs to kinda get there feet wet. You gotta understand good producers spend 1/3 of there time making there beat and spend the other 2/3 cleaning up the sound and getting the audio to sound clean and not to dull or to punchy.

Hmm, you made assumptions from my post. Basically every celebrity has a Louie backpack, they all pretty much look the same. He's called the "Louie Vuitton Don" so it's kinda obligatory. Don't forget, Even James Bond has Louie luggage.. is he supposed to be portrayed as a little girl? A little girl's backpack usually looks like:

www.highschoolmusicaldvd.co.uk

or

www.monogramsplusgifts.com

How does his hand-made italian leather girlie? Really?
