And In Kanye West-Is-Crazy News…

Oh, Kanye, you are batshit crazy. A great artist, but an insane human being. Either that or he’s playing the media like a fiddle with his always-outrageous antics. Here’s a quick roundup from the last couple of days.

  1. Apparently, Kanye had an “epic meltdown” backstage at Saturday Night Live. To the surprise of no one, of course.
  2. Confused about where you can get Kanye’s The Life of Pablo? A lot of people are. It’s apparently a 100% Tidal exclusive. (I’m still not subscribing.)
  3. Meanwhile, Kanye wants “white publications” to stop commenting on “black music.” Why? He was upset that Pitchfork gave the new album a 9/10 when “it should have been 30/10.”
  4. He’d also like Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg to give him $1 billion to pay off $53 million in person debt.
  5. Virgin Australia doesn’t think much of Kanye. They tweeted for him to “go eat a dick.”
