The Blemish » kanye west Better than a slap to the face Thu, 21 Aug 2014 07:32:38 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Kanye West Fired His DJ, Probably Because He Sucked Thu, 14 Aug 2014 23:04:50 +0000 DJ Million Dollar Mano (we’ll call him DJ MDM for short) has been given the boot as Kanye West’s DJ. Kanye offered no explanation as to why but a fan from a Kanye West message board compiled a video of all the times DJ MDM fucked up Kanye’s set. From not playing the right song to forgetting to play the song completely.

Then again, maybe he just really liked trolling Kanye.

Kanye West’s Video for ‘RoboCop’ Leaked Sat, 09 Aug 2014 00:55:09 +0000 A short clip from Kanye West’s unreleased music video for RoboCop has been leaked. Shihan Barbee, the 3D modeler who directed the video, says the video never debuted despite being “dope.” The video features Amber Rose’s head on top of a Barbified version of her body as she twerks and jerks for Kanye. It’s like one of those really awkward sex dreams you had as a kid after playing with your sister’s dolls. No, I don’t think that’s oddly specific at all, why do you ask?

Kanye West Still Comparing Celebrities to Blacks in the 60s Thu, 07 Aug 2014 17:47:57 +0000 TMZ obtained a copy of Kanye West’s deposition in the case where he’s accused of beating a photog and smashing his camera. Lo and behold, Kanye is still trying to draw parallels between celebrities of today and black people from the 60s.

“I mean in the ’60s people used to hold up ‘Die N****r’ signs when my parents were in the sit-ins also.” Goldberg asks if he equates the struggle of blacks in the past with celebrities today and Kanye says, “Yes, 100 … I equate it to discrimination. I equate it to inequalities.”

“We, as group of minorities here in L.A., as celebrities have to ban together to influence guys like this — guys trying to take the picture, guys trying to get the big win, guys trying to get the check.”

People trying to take pictures of celebrities walking down the street to their Lambo is totally like blacks being denied their rights in the 60s. Back then they could barely get to their Lambos either! Well, no more. This small minority of obscenely wealthy people in LA need to band together to make their voice heard. Too long have they been ignored. Come out from behind those gated mansions and 50 foot tall hedges and let it be known that you, filthy rich LA citizen, will not stand for having your picture taken as you walk into a shop on Rodeo Drive for a Givenchy dress fitting while flanked by a herd of inconspicuous security.

Also in the deposition, Kanye whines that his daughter is stalked by drones.

“Is your daughter stalked by like drones? Are there drones flying where she’s trying to learn how to swim at age 1?”

“Wouldn’t you like to just teach your daughter how to swim without a drone flying? What happens if a drone falls right next to her?  Would it electrocute her?”

“Could it fall and hit her if that paparazzi doesn’t understand how to remote control the drone over their house?”

Like Martin Luther King famously said, “I have a dream that one day little rich boys and girls will finally be segregated from the unwashed masses without suffering the indignity of having their picture taken.”

Kanye West Says Celebrities are Treated Like Blacks Were in the 60s Mon, 21 Jul 2014 17:08:11 +0000 I don’t know if you know this, but Kanye West feels persecuted because of his fame. West covers the latest issue of GQ and tells the magazine that being a celebrity is just like being a black person in the 60s. While talking about his 45-minute jerk-off session at his wedding, Kanye explained:

And what I talked about in it was the idea of celebrity, and celebrities being treated like blacks were in the ’60s, having no rights, and the fact that people can slander your name. I said that in the toast. And I had to say this in a position where I, from the art world, am marrying Kim. And how we’re going to fight to raise the respect level for celebrities so that my daughter can live a more normal life. She didn’t choose to be a celebrity. But she is. So I’m going to fight to make sure she has a better life.

Apart from the beatings, hangings, burning crosses, firehoses, racism, and poverty, this is all true. How right you are Kanye. Celebrities are just like blacks were in the 60s. The only differences are the man isn’t keeping them down, the segregation is voluntary, and the water being forcibly sprayed at them comes from a golden bidet in their multi-million dollar mansion.

Before Kanye Was Kanye Fri, 18 Jul 2014 20:38:35 +0000 Before Kanye West became the egotistical lyricist with the emotional stability of a 2-year-old, he was just a regular old rapper spitting rhymes at Fat Beats in New York City. DJ Eclipse, former GM of Fat Beats in New York, unearthed this footage of a 19-year-old Kanye performing at the store.

Yesterday I started converting old Hi8 video tapes to DVD and came across some interesting footage from that day. Now we had a lot of the usual suspects in the place that day such as ILL BILL, Arsonists, Lord Finesse, Adagio, Breeze Brewin, A.L. Skills, Percee P, J-Live, Mr. Live, Chino XL, Al Tariq, Black Attack, Xzibit, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Rawcotiks, Ak Skills, Rob Swift, Roc Raida, DJ Spinna and many, many more. But what took me by surprise was the appearance of this 19-year-old kid who at that time nobody knew. At least in NYC.

Who could have predicted this Kanye would have gone on to become the tantrum throwing crybaby he is today.

Kim and Kanye Skipped Out on Honeymoon Bill or Did They? Wed, 09 Jul 2014 17:01:53 +0000 An insider says Kim Kardashian and Kanye West refused to pay a $20,000 bill for their Irish honeymoon. The two stayed in Castle Oliver in Ireland after getting married but promptly left and reversed the charges. They complained about the castle being too big and that there was no phone reception. Guys, you’re staying in a god damn castle.

But according to hotel insiders, the hotel had already ordered countless items to satisfy their over-the-top demands, and when Kimye reversed the deposit on their American Express card, the hotel staff were left on the hook for thousands!

“Everyone is shocked to say the least,” an insider said. “The castle is out a fortune on their honeymoon. It is absolutely awful.”

“They made all these requests ahead of their visit, for certain foods, champagnes, thousands in flowers, candelabras everywhere,” the insider said. “The hotel brought in everything they requested, and there were dozens of items. But then they took back all the money they had paid for them!”

The issue, the source said, is that black Amex owner Kardashian used a “high-level credit card” to pay for the venues and extras, and it “allows them to get it all refunded back at any time,” says the source.

However, the plot thickens. Calls were made to the proprietor of Castle Oliver, Emma Cormack, who said she had no idea what anyone was talked about. She started getting calls from people asking about the rumor and said, “I don’t know what you are talking about.”

Cormack explained that they were paid in full and payment was exactly how they’re always paid. Through their agent in Dublin who got the booking. She was also unaware of any problems and said “everything was as it should be.”

So Kim and Kanye aren’t as big of assholes as we thought they were. The more you know.

Kanye West Compares Being Followed by Paparazzi to Rape Mon, 07 Jul 2014 19:13:54 +0000 Another day another celebrity using hyperbole to whine about their fantastic lives. In a 20 minute rant at the Wireless festival in London in which he was booed, Kanye West (who was filling in for Drake) compared being followed by paparazzi to rape.

“I don’t care what you do in life, everybody needs a day off, everybody has the right to say, ‘You know what, I need a minute to breathe’.”

Yea, so just tell your wife to stop calling the paparazzi before going out. Sounds pretty easy.

“I want to bring my family to the movies without 30 motherf*****s following me. Everybody here, they like sex right? Sex is great when you and your partner are like, ‘Hey, this is what we both want to do’.”

“But if one of those people don’t want to do that, what is that called? That’s called rape. That is called violation.”

No, I believe that’s called marriage. And comparing being followed by photogs to being forcefully penetrated by another person while fearing for your life is just asinine. This is about as dumb as Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard’s campaign comparing paparazzi to pedophiles.

Kendall Jenner Has the Worst Hype Man Ever Mon, 23 Jun 2014 07:00:19 +0000 Kanye West and Kim Kardashian threw their daughter North West her first birthday party which they titled Kidchella. It was a kid’s version of Coachella complete with bounce houses, multiple stages for performers and a gigantic ferris wheel.


Newsflash. This kid would have been happy playing in an empty cardboard box. But that wouldn’t be the grotesque display of opulence they wanted everyone to see. Instead we get this. A party North West won’t even remember unless she’s browsing an archived version of Instagram in which she’ll see her aunt, Kendall Jenner, lip syncing to Kanye West.

And also lip syncing to Rihanna while the world’s worst hype man tries to get everyone excited. He looks like a bum they dragged off the street.

Kanye West Spent 4 Days Editing His Wedding Photos Tue, 17 Jun 2014 18:19:03 +0000 After Annie Leibovitz pulled out of shooting Kanye and Kim’s wedding, Kanye spent 4 days editing the wedding photos himself in an attempt to imitate Leibovitz’s style. Speaking at a Cannes Lions panel, Kanye explained what happened.

He added that he then spent four days of his honeymoon perfecting the photo of himself kissing Kim at the altar in Florence in front of a wall of roses.

Kanye explained, “Let me tell you something about that kiss photo that my girl put up … this was pissing my girl off during the honeymoon, she was exhausted because we worked on the photo so much because Annie Leibovitz pulled out right before the wedding. I think that she was, like, scared of the idea of celebrity.”

That’s funny because Leibovitz probably just does some minor corrections and has a preset filter she uses. Meanwhile, Kanye’s spending 4 days trying to figure out how to blow out the highlights.

“Because Annie pulled out, I was like, ‘Okay, I still want my wedding photos to look like Annie Leibovitz,’ and we sat there and worked on that photo for, like, four days because the flowers were off-color.

“Can you imagine telling someone who wants to just Instagram a photo, who’s the No. 1 person on Instagram, ‘We need to work on the color of the flower wall,’ or the idea that it’s a Givenchy dress, and it’s not about the name Givenchy, it’s about the talent that is Riccardo Tisci — and how important Kim is to the Internet.

“And the fact the No. 1 most-liked photo [on Instagram] has a kind of aesthetic was a win for what the mission is, which is raising the palette.

“It was a long time,” he added — drawing laughs from the audience, before later adding, “Why did Annie Leibovitz pull out one day before the wedding?”

Can you imagine Kanye just sitting there looking at all the buttons and switches in Lightroom and just hovering his finger over the keyboard because he’s afraid that pressing the wrong button will make his computer explode and then shouting profanities because he clicked something that turned him into a smurf? I can and I can’t stop giggling.
