Why should I waste this blog space to talk about a pretentious, insecure, scumbag who pats himself on the back so much that his shirts have handprints? Why should I defend the “jerk” as President Obama would call it, that stole a poor innocent girl’s spotlight on national television? Why should I go to bat for the sacrilegious heathen who takes photo shoots rocking a crown of thorns? I’m doing it because “Jesus died for our sins, Michael Jackson died for the sins of the media, Jesus had the bible, Michael had Wikipedia.” In other words, individuals who have pushed the envelope in society have always been persecuted for their forward thinking. While I’m certainly not juxtaposing Kanye West to any religious figure or music icon, I am saying that his candid words in a recent 17 minute interview reveal that West is too complex of a person to be written off as a douche bag, scum bag, or a –hole.
