I like some of Kanye's music but think he's completely nuts.  Which isn't necessarily a bad thing. 

Kanye is, at the very least, entertaining.

I like Miley more than Kanye, but I agree their personas are similar.  Just so we're clear, Miley is 20 and Kanye is 36.

I think he knows that when he acts like this, people think he's nuts. The Kimmel beef was just a tour promo.

Is Kanye the most self-aware or least self-aware person alive?  Is Kanye the most secure or the most insecure?

Maybe so.  But the line between "being nuts" and "coming across as nuts" is a fine one.  As Vonnegut says, "we must be careful what we pretend to be."

his memes were the best.


Also, this smells fishy.

Gay fishy?

Where has "being nuts" (or "coming across as nuts") done anything but help his career?

if "being nuts" makes you billions of dollars and gets you whatever you want for your entire life is it really "nuts"?

Kanye isn't the worst trend to come along, some of his songs are good, but he's nothing special.

who do you consider to be special?

he has 21 grammy awards and 53 nominations. MEH!

I'm not saying it hasn't helped his career.  But I was under the impression that you were saying he wasn't nuts but was only pretending to be nuts.  But if he actually is crazy, then that doesn't seem like such a good deal for him.

Would you sacrifice your sanity for being insanely wealthy?

I'm just saying that the line between nuts and pretending to be nuts isn't trivial.  At least not for him.

Not sure that wealth and "being nuts" are negatively correlated. 

Also, not sure that what you described necessarily = happiness and self-actualization, but it might depending upon the person. 

Money isn't a tool for everyone, sometimes it is an end that can never be achieved.  Sometimes it is a trap.

"Fame" is much more likely to be a trap and to lead to "being nuts" which is the most relevant issue.

I really don't think he's nuts, at all. He's definitely more bold than most people, but does that make someone nuts? He isn't risking life and limb. He isn't risking losing friends or family. He certainly isn't hurting career. So what's the harm? He confuses White America and makes them dislike him?

(loved that storify, BTW)

I don't think we've concluded anything about his mental health, nor are we probably in a good position to judge it.  I just think that there are some very obvious distortions to your life that are inherent in being as famous as Kanye is.  That clearly has consequences, although they are not the same for everyone.

that kanye west, he's so controversial!  my God, he's a like a jigsaw puzzle that i just can't figure out!  a very scary black man, if you ask me.  i wish he would just fall in line like the rest of the negro entertainers and be happy that i bought his new album for my 15 year old daughter.

Kendrick Lamar, Kid Cudi, Earl Sweatshirt, Lupe Fiasco. I prefer Kanye behind the glass not in the booth.

Anyone that doesn't consider Kanye one of the greatest hip/hop artists in the last 10-15 years doesn't know music. Pretty simple if you ask me?
