The same reason it is hard to score a goal against Neuer.

The headline is just trying to be cute, not hyperbolic. It was a little low and to the left of the plate but cmon dude.

But that tweet about To Pimp A Butterfly being totally overrated IS SO BRAVE.

He usually doesn't do that at his shows. He played for 3+ hrs when I saw him, all full songs except for maybe 1.

Then it's probably scripted. I saw one before the Grammys on Hollywood Blvd and the interviewees were trying not to laugh.

Very little of this petition relates to his narcissism, which I would have at least understood. But it's blatantly anti-hip hop much like the petition for Jay-Z to be removed from the line-up in 2008.

These are totally fake, just like the Coachella vid. The names of the acts were edited in after, cause making fun of 'hipsters' is apparently still hilarious.

I agree with you. I'm not wearing rose colored glasses, in fact I wish he would stop making stupid comments and obsessing over this fashion stuff in general. When he lets his music speak for him, that's the best thing for everyone. LOL. I was just commenting specifically on the classism/price point thing. I know VERY little about it but I'm not sure if you can mass produce high quality clothing without a big company's help or a loss. At least that is what he's been saying again and again in interviews.

Yea? The only reason anyone would call it wussy is because he's a hip hop artist, and that implies that all of his stuff should be macho and misogynistic. If Marvin's Room were a D'Angelo song, would anyone even think to call it wussy for a second?

No one expects Croz to think Ye is one of the most talented people ever, but to say he has "no talent at all" is to deny an entire genre of music any credibility.

March 6, 2015 on David Crosby On Kanye West: “He’s An Idiot And A Poser”
I hear what you're saying, especially about Drunk and Hot Girls and Barry Bonds (not that I didn't enjoy the f*ck out of those when I was blasting Graduation at parties), but calling them "garbage" or 808s mostly "awful" is a bit of a stretch. 808s was his biggest departure from hip hop so I think that is 90% of the negativity it received. Not sure how you can deny songs like Paranoid or Heartless. I even pulled up Hell of a Life just now to reevaluate and I have to disagree with you, especially when I think of its placement in the Runaway movie. I love Blueprint but it will never mean more to me than Graduation, an album that I literally wore out (the last cd I ever bought before I switched to mp3s). Sure, I know a lot of people who say his new stuff is terrible but Yeezus was my and a lot of other people's album of the year so that is obviously subjective. I don't think everything he's ever done is mind-blowing or that MBDTF is a perfect 10 (it's not) but saying he's "very good" is an understatement.

What in particular makes Drake's music "wussy"? And please don't tell me it's because he's a male artist with feelings.

He goes into detail about the price-points as well, that in order to mass produce a high quality product he's having to go through an Adidas or a Nike, and he's gotten them lower but only has so much control over the price-point which is ultimately their call. $120 for a shirt that's made like Versace shit is actually very cheap (look at designer t-shirts online). Look, I don't care much about fashion Kanye and there's plenty of stuff to hate on him for, I just don't think you're actually listening to the interviews before bashing him on this particular thing.

If you listened to the interview you'd know that he's actually talking about classism, and that he's not considered a real artist because he's a "rapper" and therefore a lower class. He's saying that high quality products should be affordable and available to everyone rather than an exclusive experience for the rich. No one said it was the worst problem in the world, but it's a little more than "rich black guy" wanting to be more rich.

I am a HUGE fan of Beck. I think he has 5-6 incredible records, but Morning Phase is not one of them. It was a copy of Sea Change imo and the Beyonce record was way more ground-breaking for its genre. I am not a fan of the Grammys at all but out of the 4 options in that category (which is what we are talking about here), yea, I really have to agree that Beyonce deserved it. "Boring" is definitely not a word I would use to describe that record. Comparing Beck and Beyonce is ridiculous to begin with, but you can thank award shows for that.

February 9, 2015 on Kanye Wasn’t Kidding, Says Beck “Should’ve Given His Award To Beyoncé”
I'm not trying to take sides on this issue, but the paper has the right to print whatever they want just like WME has the right not to play there anymore. Freedom of speech is not freedom from consequences; something we learn when celebrities, athletes, etc. make bigoted comments or say inappropriate things. No one from the paper was sent to jail, so freedom of speech was upheld. With that being said, there are consequences to breaking someone's trust and the people who published the rider knew full well that Jack White wasn't going to like it. It has nothing to do with despising freedom of the press.

No one is really going nuts over it either, though. Where is that? Am I missing it? I'm reading all of the comments on SG and no one is really raving about this. No one on my twitter or fb feed has even mentioned it. I am the biggest Beatles AND Kanye fan you will meet and I don't think it's anything special. However, I think it's right up the alley of anyone who listens to modern country music or watches American Idol. I don't like any of that stuff, but like I said if this were someone like Carrie Underwood or T Swift, the reception would be even greater.

What's worse is I think it's a 100% publicity stunt for album releases, and nothing against SG, but it always works.

February 3, 2015 on Noel Gallagher Says Modern Rock Stars Are Dull, Especially Arctic Monkeys
I'm not even a Big Sean fan, so I can't speak on him, and most of the artists I like do "have something to say," but I honestly just don't think there's anything wrong or low standard about fun music, as long as it's good. I'm a huge fan of Ab-Soul and guys like that who are pushing the envelope as far as lyrical content, but sometimes I just wanna listen to Started From the Bottom. I don't see one as superior to the other, just different.
