Dear [lastfm]Kanye West[/lastfm]:
This is an intervention. No, you can keep drinking. No, we don’t think you’re a horder like those people on that scary Discovery Channel reality show. And the last thing we want you to do is get in touch with any of your feelings. We want you to STOP touching your feelings.
We want arrogant Kanye back.
You have a new article out in this month’s XXL Magazine in which you, AGAIN, explain the MTV Video Music Awards ceremony incident from last year.
“”I stress that the incident wasn’t about Taylor personally. And it definitely wasn’t about race. Where I messed up is, at the end of the day, it’s your show, Taylor. It’s your show, MTV,” you write.
We know, Kanye. We know.
You go on to say that you should not have been at the awards show at all, and that you had to win the public’s trust back.
“I knew I wasn’t in a great spot publicly after the incident, but I would just block it out and work as hard as possible and let my work be my saving grace,” you wrote. “In a way, I had thrown a Molotov cocktail at my own career, and it gave me an opportunity, for the first time, to go away and find out who I was. Because I felt very alone.”
Kanye, remember when you wrote this song?
Or maybe this one?
MORE OF THIS. You didn’t kill anyone. You didn’t run on stage naked. You interrupted someone during an awards speech and made the VMAs relevant again after a couple of bad years.
Besides, you already got your public scolding:
We love you, Kanye. We just want what’s best for you.
