Is this going to be another bizarre Kanye West moment? Why, yes of course. We thought you’d never ask.
By now, we’re all used to Kanye West incessant and sometimes needless bragging. He’s also no stranger to handing out disses about unassuming celebrities and random things/current issues. Even while asking Mark Zuckerberg for USD 1 billion.
Kanye got on Twitter on Saturday (13th February) to “humbly” say that he’s USD 53 million in debt. This was followed by him begging his fans to subscribe to Tidal where his new album “The Life of Pablo” was exclusively streamed.
Then, on Monday (15th February), the 38-year-old artiste took to Twitter again to call on Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to “invest $1bn into Kanye West ideas … after realizing he is the greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time”.
Note: He also conveniently gets Mark Zuckerberg’s birthday wrong while he’s at it. Mark Zuckerberg was born on 14th May.
Ah, and all so-called “begging for help” is not without taking the opportunity to brag about his music and his “art” all in the same breath (read: rant).
He also goes on to talk about being “this generation’s Disney” but he “doesn’t have enough resources” to create what he really can. Although, we seriously wouldn’t recommend Kanye West to kids, if you know what we mean.
And we doubt that Disney would spend disgusting amounts of money on say a wedding proposal i.e. hiring a 41,000 capacity baseball stadium in San Francisco complete with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra to supply the music. Or hole up in a USD 20 million Hidden Hills estate (basically the mini Versailles of Los Angeles) which comes with a vineyard.
That’s not the end.
Just in case Mark Zuckerberg wasn’t listening, Kanye widened his appeal to other tech billionaires. Who better to also reach out to than Google Inc.’s Larry Page, eh?
At this point, it would’ve been easy to ignore the rants of “the greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time” had he not said:
Oh, because Africa can wait. Sure.
Let’s just say that Kanye West needs to get off Twitter and perhaps be sent to live on Pluto forever or something like that.
