In absolute truth, I am not aware of ever hearing any music by Kanye West. I have not got the slightest idea of who he is, beyond being a rapper.

Anyone with $300 can get Autotune. Anyone with $0 can get GSnap. That doesn't make you "king" of anything.

Has anyone made a gay fish joke yet?

At least Jackson could sing. When West appeared on SNL, attempting to sing without an auto tuner, people were so aghast, I'm surprised he even showed his face in public afterward.

Talentless hack doesn't even BEGIN to describe this self important turd. (new window)

I stand corrected. I am told by somebody here that Kanye West "..is the man who put the K into Rap Music".
I think he is trying to have a joke at my expense.

Well. The last king was self-appointed. I don't see a problem with this.

You know, some people can't even open a can of shoe polish, so give him some credit.

I learned my lesson. I buy the kind with the screw-on lids now. And Kanye West probably has his humble manservants take care of his shoes.

You and me both, pal. Most of the names that get mentioned in the Showbiz tab? I don't have the slightest farking clue who they are, except that I vaguely recognize the names. Kanye West is a bit different due to the Bush remark, but I still haven't heard one of his songs.

/to be fair, Michael Jackson was also self-declared the "king"
//key difference: Jackson had a shiatload of talent

I was going to suggest you check out the absolute psychosis that is "Trapped in the Closet," but a quick Google tells me that it was R. Kelly... so yeah, I don't think I've ever heard anything by him either.

Holy crap! That was bad! No talent at all.

50 Cent's a fag, so is Kanye West
Shooting hot sperm on each others' chest



metal is back baby!

but i will give west his do. He is now the NEW KING OF POPing little boys in the arse.

Note: Michael Jackson wasn't self-proclaimed. Dame Elizabeth Taylor proclaimed him the King of Pop, and the MSM listened and ran with it, as did his record companies.

Michael Jackson never came out of the blue and said, "heheeee...I'm the King of Pop!"

Liz said it, everyone repeated it.

It's awesome how the "source" for this article is apparently a bad satire site.

Dear Kanye West,

Please go away.

It would be interesting to see Colbert smack on Kanye some more, now that Kanye's a King, and all.

/honestly, only place I've ever heard Kanye's stuff was on Colbert, which was only a couple of seconds, thankfully.

I actually enjoyed his first 2 albums, he went downhill real fast real farking quick though. And he needs to keep his mouth shut.

I second this. And as self proclaimed Pope Of The Internet, I declare it to be true.

Wait. I just got here.
Who is this "Kanye West" person again?

/The only rap I listen to is by the Black Eyed Peas.
 
2009-07-29 01:16:14 AM
Kanye West can't sing. Hell, he can't even rap. It's a wonder how he got to where he is.
 
2009-07-29 01:18:27 AM
Kayne declares himself king of pop seriously, The only thing he is king of is masking his voice with technology, I have a suggestion EAR PLUGS!!!!!
 
2009-07-29 01:19:55 AM
he actually didn't

this story is fake. the source they're quoting is scrapetv, whose main story a few hours ago was about silver bullets being ineffective on werewolves:

OMG, I totally called this the day Michael Jackson died (somebody else said it would be Usher, but I decried "No, only the one known as Kanye has the balls to take this mantle without the talent to deserve it". I knew it was only a matter of time; I'm genuinely surprised he waited a whole month before declaring this.
 
2009-07-29 01:21:10 AM
I tried to send in a message about this when I saw it was greenlit before hitting the main page- if you click the source in tfa, you'll see it's scrapetv, which is a fake news site.

Poor reporting on the side of the Examiner (and many other websites) and laziness on my part lead to me thinking it was real just long enough to hit submit.

Sorry guys, he pretended he was Jesus, but apparently he didn't say this, unless Scrape TV is in fact legitimate, and the story on their front page about silver bullets being ineffective against werewolves is cutting edge, hardcore truth.

Yeah, but it's just so believable that he would do something like this that I didn't think to fact check the story. I googled it though and found quite a few websites reporting it, so at least I'm not alone in my idiocy. I got trolled.
