The best lies are the plausible ones.  Like Kanye's.
 
2013-12-11 09:49:34 AM
To sum it up, Kanye will sound like an egotistical douche regardless of what he says. He could recite the phone book and will use it to stroke his ego.

And there's a theory that this is all an act from him, like Andy What'shisname. If true, that actually makes him a bigger douchebag.

with his case, I'm perplexed, on one hand, I dislike his "I'm better than everyone, suck it" attitude

on the other, I like his smart/dumbass move of selling ludicrously expensive plain white tshirts

/he'd still be an asshole if he donated all his money to charity
//not Charity, though she does have kids to feed

Oh, really, things the daily currant report aren't true?

Thanks, CNN

I believe Nelson Mandela cared about black people.
 
2013-12-11 10:34:22 AM
He is, in fact, now the current Nelson Mandela.  Friends now may address him as "Kandiba"
 
2013-12-11 10:35:19 AM
No, he's just comparing himself to Jesus, which is SO much better...
 
2013-12-11 10:36:21 AM
Mandela's video wasn't that great.
 
2013-12-11 10:36:22 AM
Legend in his own mind.
 
2013-12-11 10:37:29 AM
There is a particular sense in which I actually do wish he were the next Nelson Mandela.
 
2013-12-11 10:37:45 AM
This trolling of the news is getting to be pretty funny.

He sells plain white tees? Like Hanes white cotton tees?

If Kanye wants to work in a lime quarry for a decade or so, contract TB and be imprisoned for 20 years or so, then he can possibly lay claim to being the "next" Mandela.

Is there no end to the depths of his stupidity??
 
2013-12-11 10:40:41 AM
Kim remains confused about the whole thing. "Look at my ass," she was heard to exclaim.
 
2013-12-11 10:44:07 AM
1) I wouldn't believe CNN if they reported that water is wet.

2) Even if Kanye or Kanwee or Kenya or whatever the f*ck that douche's name is didn't say it (and really this is the first I've even heard about this) I really wouldn't doubt that he WOULD say something like that.

3) At least it wouldn't be as bad as defending a reference to Al Sharpton in a memorial headline.*

*and BOOM goes the dynomite
 
2013-12-11 10:50:40 AM
Yet.
 
2013-12-11 10:52:10 AM
Good. Let's throw him in jail for 27 years.
 
2013-12-11 10:52:50 AM
Really?  It seems like he MUST have at SOME point.

/weird.

That's the funny part. We all found that believable

came for 'serious to happy & back to serious'  kanye

leaving disappointed ... now happy ... now disappointed again

If anything, this shows how stupid the populace has truly become.
 
2013-12-11 11:02:05 AM
no, he just compared himself to Jesus.
 
2013-12-11 11:09:11 AM
Doesn't this almost go along the lines of Rodman saying he was a world peace ambassador and deserved the Nobel Peace prize for becoming friends with NK's leader?

In any case...  Kanye is an insufferable deuche.  Such to a point that I really don't understand why he is so famous.  I couldn't tell you a single song he's produced other than Gold Digger.  That is a really amusing song.  Even if some of it was ripped off...

No, you see, he called himself Al Sharpton's polar opposite, got some early support from his closest associates, then once the news broke, got 105 negative votes
 
2013-12-11 11:25:26 AM
Until kanye spends 20 years in jail for genocide, I think he's ahead in points with mandela.
 
2013-12-11 11:35:04 AM
Soon...
 
2013-12-11 11:35:27 AM
Don't give Kanye ideas, he'll probably start comparing himself to Mandela in the near future.
 
2013-12-11 11:42:12 AM
The actual quote was "I am the ORIGINAL Mandella."  Not "I am the NEXT Mandella".
 
2013-12-11 11:46:14 AM
So we can't just lock him up for a few years?
 
kab
2013-12-11 11:47:57 AM
Why is what he says of any concern or interest to anyone, at any point in time?

His schtick is attention whoring, and nothing more.  Stop falling for it.

Maybe they like fish schticks.

I so wanted this to be true when I heard it on Sunday morning.

I thought it was POSSIBLE that he was that much of an asshat.

I am disappoint.

Winner!!!
 
2013-12-11 12:18:32 PM
Good then can he go to South Africa and run for president there and stop bugging us
 
2013-12-11 12:21:30 PM
He called himself the next terrorist?
 
2013-12-11 12:22:04 PM
No, he said he was bigger than Mandela.

Also, did this show up on front page as "Kanye West said what?" or some other clickbait?  Because holy cow CNN has gone all-in on clickbait headlines lately.
 
2013-12-11 12:31:31 PM
The only thing that comes to mind is a quote from The Replacements

"My bruthas, would someone please, please get this asshole out of here?"
 
2013-12-11 12:40:32 PM
But the fact that one could look at that statement and find it plausible does say something about Kanye.
 
2013-12-11 01:09:19 PM
I thought that meant he'd die next. For a minute there, I felt relief.
 
2013-12-11 01:14:48 PM
I don't think Nelson Mandela was a gay fish
 
2013-12-11 01:24:05 PM
Ive tried to listen to his music a few times, different songs.

I don't get the hype - I think it's terrible.

/rap rap
//I like rap
 
2013-12-11 01:25:37 PM
 
2013-12-11 02:45:53 PM
I never heard about this, but I am actually more shocked that he didn't say it than I would have been if he did.
 
2013-12-11 03:21:53 PM

sovietski: He sells plain white tees? Like Hanes white cotton tees?


Plain white t-shirts, yup. For $120. Apparently plain white t-shirts are now known as "hip-hop shirts".

It seems that the only people more idiotic than Kanye are his fans, as they sold out.
 
2013-12-11 04:31:22 PM

It's a bit more entertaining.

Holy crap. Those are like the t-shirts all the old Chinese men in Hawaii wore... you could buy them for like $1.99 at Long's Drugs.
