Kanye West: “I hate business people . . . Since when was making art about getting rich?” Mr. West might be relieved to know that often times there is no correlation between making art and making money. Which is precisely why he is a millionaire.

Here is a little bit more of the story from on the illustrious kenya west. I’m sure that isn’t the korrekt spelling of his name but, who cares? Beating a dead horse? Sure, I do that. He kept going and so do I. http://www.upi.com/blog/2013/02/28/Kanye-Wests-on-stage-rant-Rapper-disses-Taylor-Swift-Jay-Z-Justin-Timberlake-in-London/9091362061942/

The part about how beyonsay dances in heels and shit, so her superior talent was definitely overlooked when they honored Miss Swift, probably he figured because Miss Swift has no apparent excess melanin.

This is still 1 of the funniest thing I’ve ever seen, & I don’t think Kayne was trying to be funny…

…Mike Meyers looks so uncomfortable when he realizes that West has jumped the shark.

Kanye, you glittering jewel of colossal ignorance (and marginal-at-best talent):

Do you understand what it is you do?

You make music and SELL it to willing buyers. You go to a studio and tell people what to do in order to make the product be what you want it to be.

You stage a performance and SELL it to willing buyers. You go to a concert venue and tell people what to do in order to make the product be what you want it to be.

That makes you a business. There is no substantive difference between what you do and what the CEO of the company that made your car(s), phone, recording equipment, or the autotune hardware & software (without which, I suspect you would sell significantly less of your product).

Get over yourself.

Since when was making art about getting rich, said the one worth 90 million dollars. Why not give $85 million away then? I wonder how many people could live in his $11 million mansion in Bel Air? I don’t follow music like I used to, but Justin Timberlake has some talent in my opinion. He can sing, play the piano, write some catchy songs, dance a bit, and do a bit of comedic acting. I remain unconvinced that rappers are talented, with maybe an exception or two.

He’s not just a “fartist”, he’s classy too!

Kanye knows how to say the word art?

He just leaves the “F” off of fart.

I’m thinking he wouldn’t know art, or music, if it hit him in the head with a 2×4.

Kanye is in the music business to make money. No different than any other business person out to get rich. Art is a very weak argument to separate himself from the 1%.

The only thing that separates him from the 1% is that he got there by luck and the rest got there by hard work.

“I hate business people…Since when was making art about getting rich?”

So asked Kanye West who is a millionaire and a jackass.

Kanye is to art as spray paint is to the opera.
