Reasons Why Kanye Can Sit His Black Ass Down

Look. I’m a Kanye, well Kanye pre-Kim, fan. The guy is musically brilliant. Cool. But I think we can all agree Yeezy could sit the fuck down sometimes, yes? Here are my top reasons:

1. Beyonce don’t need Ye caping for her.  Beyonce is very accomplished in her own right. She has 20 grammys. She is in no way underrated, hell I’d argue a bit overrated. (I like her but I STAN when she makes more emotional music a la 4.) She’s chilling. HER husband is chilling. She don’t need you on this one Ye.

1.5. I never see Ye going up for the REAL underdogs.  Not a word when Janelle Monae got snubbed last year, despite Electric Lady being a beautiful album both sonically and in content. But he can find ALL the words for Beyonce. Bye Ye.

1.75. Ye and Beyonce are NOT the only two artists on the musical landscape with talent. Just because he doesn’t rock with Beck or whoever the hell else doesn’t mean they aren’t worthy. Hell most of the artists I rock with don’t get the acclaim they deserve. I’m pretty sure my iTunes reads as ALL the future seasons of Unsung.

2. This fashion shit is wearing me thin. Truly. His fashion tantrums are the dumbest ones of all. Dude has Anna Wintour, Ricardo Tisci, an’nem on speed dial and couldn’t make a fashion moment work?!?! I guess it never occurred to him that maybe it’s NOT discrimination. Maybe he’s just NOT that damn talented. I follow fashion from a business perspective. I know that it is rife with discrimination, but nothing his privilege, wealth, and connections couldn’t overcome.

I’ve never seen anything that Kanye designed that really looked signature or original (I mean flight jackets sir?!?). I take that back. His first Louis Vuitton sneakers were dope as hell. Actually, his sneaker designs are good. NEVERTHELESS, his first runway show was Kim’s closet – a bunch of Herve Leger. All his other clothing collaborations have looked like a dumbed down version of Alexander Wang or The Row, WHICH MEANS ITS BASIC AS FUCK!!. I mean Wang and the Olsen waifs are flourishing off accessories and outerwear but I would NEVER pony up for some of their basic ass black and white clothes. His shoe collaborations with Giuseppe Zanotti were better-ish. But, they just looked like “standard” ass Giuseppes. And the bullshit called a fashion show yesterday?!? Girl, bye. I say all of this to say, no one is checking for Ye in fashion, not because he’s black, BUT BECAUSE HIS CLOTHES JUST AREN’T THAT DAMN GOOD. Tell him North!!

3. I left her for last because I can’t stand her ass – Kim. I’m not EVER going to see it for Kim. Kanye is like that cousin that marries the bish you’ont like and tries to force her on you. I aint like her ass then, and I’m not gonna like her now that you married her. He really has to make peace with that shit and stop trying to convince us of the many reason Kim is great. We don’t want her.  Bey doesn’t want her. Anna doesn’t want her. He wants her. We tolerate her because we still want Ye, for now. Dude gotta chill.

(but seriously… can we discuss this picture?!?!? Diddy/Puffy/whatever is like “this shit here,” Jay is perplexed, Bey is sitting in all her black mama “this is why Blue is not here” judgment, and Anna is trying not to get hit. I’m DYING!!)


So About The Grammys…

I’m not the biggest fan of red carpets. I usually find them pretty boring. Pretty dresses and tuxes… Yawn, yawn, yawn. The Grammy’s are a bit of an exception because artists are bit more fun. Here are my favs… and Kim and Kanye

The Swift Child always slays a red carpet, now that she stopped wearing all Glenda the good witch gowns. Grammys were no exception. She looked amazing in this Elie Saab. I still don’t like her ass though.

YES GWENY!!! I love this Atelier Versace sculptural moment. She is all.

I liked Rih’s Giambattista Valli Haute Couture dress… but I like her a little more… well naked. I mean when you got it FLAUNT IT!!!

Nicki (Tom Ford) is wearing what I wanted Rihanna to wear…

Rita Ora in this Prada that I ALSO would have preferred to see on Rihanna.

I like this Walter van Beirendonck blazer John Waters…

YAAAAASSSS NICK JONAS!!!! I love this Versace suit. I mean, it’s the Grammys… Live a little!!!

AND For the best outfits, Group, Band, Duo:

John Legend (Dolce & Gabbana) and Chrissy Teigan (Emilio Pucci) always give it to the people

I kinda love this. I’ont even know who these folks are but I SEE YOU BASTILLE!!!


Why did Kanye and Kim look like they were wearing pajamas?!?!? Kanye was in his Sunday sweatsuit with his house shoes (yes I know they’re Yeezys). Kim was in a bedazzled bathrobe. Touch Lord.

If Madonna’s ass don’t get a seat. It’s not even about her age, it’s just too damn much. It Givenchy. And belongs on a stage.
