KANYE WEST

No matter how rocky your Valentine’s Day went, something tells me it wasn’t as rocky as Kanye West’s. It seemed every few hours Kanye would post some poorly cropped image of an outfit Pete Davidson wore that he didn’t approve of while vaguely threatening bodily harm on Pete Davidson and begging for his ex wife back all while dating Julia Fox which is pretty fucking awkward. 

His posts were so outlandish, he even posted a picture of him holding a sign saying his account wasn’t hacked along with a timestamp. 

So why is Kanye doing this? Well, while most people think Kanye is having a mental breakdown, I can’t help but notice Kanye has an outburst every time a new project is about to be released

So why is Kanye doing this? Well, while most people think Kanye is having a mental breakdown, I can’t help but notice Kanye has an outburst every time a new project is about to be released. The first Donda album had Kanye going toe-to-toe with Drake, while the sequel has him beefing with Pete (or as Kanye calls him, “Skete”) Davidson and Billie Eilish, and Kid Cudi, and SNL and Satan. Good news: He’s friends with Drake again I guess.

He also dissed Machine Gun Kelly, which I respect him for doing because Machine Gun Kelly exists and therefore, deserves it. 

If this isn’t a publicity stunt, it’s Joe Goldberg levels of fucking creepy.

If this isn’t a publicity stunt, it’s Joe Goldberg levels of fucking creepy. Imagine you have a stalker, and that stalker is a world famous billionaire? Shit would probably suck. 

And dissing Pete Davidson by calling him Skete seems like a poor choice because if someone was fucking my ex that I was still obsessed with, the last thing I’d want to think about is his skete. Nor would I want to envision it on any windows or walls, or his balls. Skete, Skete  Mother fucker. God Damn. Okay. I’m quoting Lil Jon. I have writers’ block so I’m quoting Lil Jon. Fuck you. 

There’s a weird conspiracy part of my brain that think Kanye and Kim know the relationship is done and they’re using this situation to further each other’s respective careers. 

Maybe behind the scenes Kanye and Pete hang out and laugh while hoping this will turn into people actually watching SNL… Do people actually watch SNL. Is SNL funny? Is Pete Davidson funny? 

The verdict is still out. 

I miss when Kanye’s outbursts were genuine. I miss the “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” Kanye. The Trump supporter that hangs out with DaBaby and Marilyn Manson at precisely the same time as they’re in the news seems desperate.

It’s hard to tell anymore if Kanye wants clout or is experiencing a psychotic break. 

Maybe it’s both, it’s hard to say, but I miss the Old Kanye…

    He is also bipolar and has stated he goes off his meds when he makes art. It’s dangerous (and ableist) territory to make assumptions about strangers’ mental health, so who knows if that’s what’s happening here. But I CAN say that these rants trigger disturbing memories for me of dealing with both unmedicated manic friends and narcissist abusers in my life. So whether it’s a stunt or a spiral (my money is on the latter, though he’s not above letting that ALSO be the former, and in fact I think the buzz his bad behavior generates fuels his belief that he doesn’t need meds, help, or self-improvement because it’s good for business ), it’s disturbing to a lot of us out here watching it.
