THIS WEEK? ...and the award for big­gest tw*t: Kanye

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

Some­times it stems from a lurk­ing in­se­cu­rity about their tal­ents. In oth­ers it’s from a gal­lop­ing ar­ro­gance like that of a horse that has just been whacked on the arse with a glow­ing poker.

Think James

Arthur. Bene­dict “f**k the politi­cians” Cum­ber­snatch. Alexis Ar­quette. Any­one who thinks mime is an art form.

But Kanye takes bom­bas­tic c**tery to such a whole new level it’s dif­fi­cult to know how far it may reach. C**TERY: Kanye West

The sus­pi­cion grows that if Kanye could plea­sure him­self orally he’d jump at the chance. And then tell him­self in the mir­ror af­ter­wards that he was sim­ply the best he’d ever had.

He was go­ing nuts on Twit­ter again on Mon­day, too, call­ing on “white pub­li­ca­tions” like the New York Times and Rolling Stone mag­a­zine to “please do not com­ment on black mu­sic any­more”.

Er, what? Imag­ine if a white per­former was to say that about a black mu­sic critic? Imag­ine what Kanye him­self would say?

Some­thing along the lines of “Go west”, I’d imag­ine.
