Kanye West Is All Class


Now that Michael Jackson is dead and hopefully will soon be buried and not a way for Joe Jackson to make a buck, Kanye West feels like it is time that a new King Of Pop be named and he figures no one would be better for it than him. He told Scrape TV,

"There's nobody who can match me in sales and in respect so it only makes sense for me to take over Michael's crown and become the new King. First there was Elvis [Presley], then there was Michael, now in the 21st century it's Kanye's time to rule. I have nothing but respect for Michael but someone needs to pick up where he left off and there's nobody better than me to do that. I am the new King of Pop."

Wow, I really don't know how he ever gets his head inside a room. The whole King Of Pop thing isn't like a President. When one dies we don't have to name a successor the next day or anything. The world of pop doesn't go into a tailspin and the economies of the world come crashing down just because there is no one to hold the title of King Of Pop.

Kanye supposedly asked the Jackson family for their blessing of his new title. "Yeah, sorry to hear about your kid, dad, brother, or whatever. Listen, now that Michael is dead, we are going to need a new King Of Pop and face it I am better than Michael anyway and so I want your blessing to be the King Of Pop. Could you sign these for me please? I will throw in a couple of free copies of my CD. Thanks."

This is perhaps the best post ever Ent. LOVE the third paragraph especially. Someone totally has their snark on today.

empyrios said...

no one but MJ will ever be The King of Pop. ever.

Kanye can suck it. He'll never have the longevity MJ had.

Roger said...

Great post, but the article is satire. Reading some of the other "news" on Scrape TV should clear that up.

In other words, funny but fake.

RocketQueen said...

Agreed with Roger. Even Kanye isn't that much of an asshole.

I'm proud to say that I have never listned to a Kanye West song in my life, and wouldn't be able to recognize one if I heard it.

I am not a music fan, but at least I can recognize Michael Jackson songs.

This King of Snot can shove it.

Miranda said...

Wow, fuck you Kanye. I'm with JP; I wouldn't know a Kanye song if it bit me on the face.

Isabel said...

I'm not going to deny that West is talented, however, he's missing the whole "people liking you" part of being an icon. WHY won't they let Kanye be great?!?!?!

empyrios said...

the article may be satire at this point but it's something Kanye would say for sure. he IS that much of an asshole.

it's only a matter of time before he says this-or something like it- officially, lol

.robert said...

Never listened to him either, but yeah, I think it is the general public whose opinion matters and not some ego-tripper.

ardleigh said...

How about we call Kayne the "King of talking out of his ass" instead?

austinrob said...

Kanye's music is good, but it takes the fans to call you King of Pop....I doubt anyone would do that and mean it.
This story sounds like BS. I don't believe it.

captivagrl said...

asshole.

Guttersnipey said...

I wish I could rip this stupid A-hole's miniscule dick off. I HATE him.

Yeah. Because "Heartless" even comes CLOSE to reaching the genius of, say, "Billie Jean."

Fuck him.

merrick said...

Kanye's ego is big enough to fill the Orange Bowl, unfortunately, his talent is not. MJ was and will forever remain the King of Pop. No successores. I dont believe he abdicated before he died.

Mike said...

Like others have said, the article is totally satire, but it says a lot about Kanye that a lot of people online today believe it.

That said, Enty's third paragraph made me laugh too.

Mooshki said...

Even Kanye isn't that much of an asshole.

Um, "Put this in the magazine: There's nothing more to be said about music. I'm the fucking end-all, be-all of music."
-Kanye West

Pfffffft. Just PFFFFFFFT.

Cheryl said...

I'm with JP and miranda. I'm not familiar with his body of work.

Mooshki said...

For those of you who don't know Kanye's songs, this one is definitely worth listening to.

Lisa (original) said...

austinrob, not to take anything away from Michael, but he was the one who insisted back in the day that magazines, and radio stations, et al refer to him as the "King of Pop". The fans didn't do it, HE did. People just went with it.

I also agree with the posters who feel that "Kanye IS that much of an asshole".

Miranda said...

@Mooshki ... that's probably all I know about Kanye! Big ego, gay fish.

WriterMommy said...

I say let's make him the new King of Douchechusetts.

Tori said...

He's just insecure cause he knows he's a gay fish.

PJ Nelson said...

The thing is... yes, Scrape TV is sarcasm and satire - but betcha Kanye - being the egoist - believes this to be true regardless. Ppppppptttttttttthhhhhhhttttt is right. I have one song of his to all of MJs :)

jax said...

King of Hype more like.

Cheri said...

For those of you who say that Kanye's music is good...I urge you to listen again. He takes good songs and then chants in a monotone in the background about his "greatness". He's not a musician.
