Kanye West Rages Against The Machine

“Yo Britney, I’m really happy for you and I’mma let you be #1, but me and Jay-Z’s single is one of the best songs of all time! LOL. On a serious note I’m truly happy for @AvrilLavigne and @BritneySpears…… No hate in 2011! I thought LOL signified a joke… I didn’t get the 2011 LOL doesn’t signify a joke anymore memo… LOL or something else I guess”

After Britney’s new song took the #1 spot on iTunes, Kanye jokingly tweeted the statements above last Friday. After the rapper caught wind of MSNBC and other various sites reporting his tweets as slander, he took to Twitter this evening to unleash on the media. Take it away Ye.

Just saw that MSNBC said I tried to start a twitter war with Brittany. This shit takes the air out my lungs sometimes from blogs to news reports… enough already!!! All I do is focus on my work. There’s a new lie everyday… a new media spin… I never got a watch with my face on it!!! A company tried to give that to me 9 yrs ago! I’m one of the most considerate people in real life. Maybe over considerate. Over caring. Overly real. There is no astronaut training for celebrity… even though this whole life is so outer space! I was actually surprised that a record as raw as H*A*M could make it to #2 on Itunes. How can u “let” someone be number one??!! That was the whole joke!!! I know intelligent people know this so bear with me.

When I said the comment about Brittney I was giving her props for being #1 not dissing her at all! But stop making it seem that my aim is to hurt or down people! That’s just not my style! As pop stars we’re all in this shit together! We on the inside of the TV! If the media wants to make a story … just say I have atrocious spelling and terrible grammar…If you don’t give em a story they just make one up. I’m just trying to focus & stay creative! Keep bringing dope shit to the world!

Once again thank you to all my fans who made MBDTF certified platinum! You all give me the power and I never take it for granted. I am an extension of my listeners. I won’t always say the right thing but my heart is always in the right place. Thinking out loud… Whenever I read press I just need to remind myself that there’s people that care about music and don’t care about press.

    I’m Not Going To Lie. I Understand It Was A Joke & Everything BUT If He Was Truly Sorry & Remorseful For What He Did To Taylor Swift; Why Would You Make A Joke Out Of It? It Shows That You Really Didn’t Give A Fuck & Just Did The Apology Bullshit For The Media; Which Is Interesting Because Here You Are Bitching About The Media..

    Kanye @ his best and worst. His spelling point of Britney name is so orchestrated as this whole Britney twitter stunt. What better way 2 get free press for himself and H.A.M. C this twitter run through the media like wild fire. Genius. He dont need astronaut training and need to know rocket science b/c its like he is a genius @ the game. He takes Britney along for the ride this time . . . on her coattail not his. Btw, what is the name for the male version of the female attention whore?

  • http://N.com nah

    kanye is a douche bag!

  • http://www.watchyoursetup.com JUS SAYIN

    Kanye is bipolar. LOL. It’s funny as hell tho. I feel him and his explanation, but cmon son. You be giving the ingredients to the media to cook up the assumptions, bruh. Bipolar ass.

    Example (aka “not completely what he said, but still…”):

    REAL LIFE Kanye: “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.”
    TWITTER Kanye: “I don’t know why politicians hate me.”

  • KingWonder

    Media sources should never do a story on a twitter post. 140 characters does not equal news

  • alchemist

  • BK

    Why don’t he just SHUT THE FUCK UP? I mean shit, when in doubt and all that right? Of course they’re gonna report shit like that. The thing is he gives them reason to. If you’re gonna bait the media, you may as well face the repercussions when they call you a dick later on and not cry about it.

  • h!GhT!m3$

    kanye always do shit for attention….dis dude here gona kill da game soon

  • nsisu

    She definetly has sold more albums than him, but when it comes to critical acclaim (Grammys) Kanye has her beat many lifetimes over. What he has been able to do for the culture of hip-hop will be unmatched forever.. thank you mr. west

  • tr

    I’m glad he addressed that bullshit. Media are looking for the first opportunity to take him down lol but he keeps bringing the heat with his music.

  • Thank Me Hater

    I like kanye but this is one he shoulda left alone. Of course the media is gonna do anything to stir up controversy. That’s how they make a living. was kanye born yesterday? That’s their lane kanye…now know yours! ur an entertainer!! the media thinks of u as a spectacle plain and simple. they’re not ur friends or ur relatives. its time to realize that!

  • Thank Me Hater

    And for those of u
    saying the media is full of pricks and assholes …..duuuuhhhhhhh. they got u to read their bullshit story so mission accomplished. the only way to fight the media is not to fight them. they’re getting buzz off this kanye statement. dumbasses

  • Itz Yourz

  • Jayo

    Kanye is a fool. Does he really think a song like H.A.M could do well in the charts. The charts are ruled by the kids, and if Kanye really wants to be loved by the kids, then fuck him.

  • illaDeuce

    I love how some stans are out here tryna shit on yeezy when Em made a career out of shitting on popstars, mainly britney spears, and to the dude that said kanye lost gggggg-unit… the fuck is 50 doing musically, he`s as relevant in music as the midget in Luda`s stand up video. I`m not saying hes not getting money, but in the world of MUSIC he fell off for a little minute. g-unit as a whole is deaded, with all their sales talk 50s last album flopped and banks`sales isnt even worth talking bout.

  • Foyolyfe

    uhhhh @Jayo. didn’t it say that Ham went number two on iTunes charts and you are wrong, because most of the kids love Kayne, my nephew and all of his friends included. and everybody else who is still tripping over Taylor swift get your panties out of a bunch men included and grow a pair man. the main people that comment on Kanye being this and that so much sound soooo suspect to me…let him do him, for the sake of HIp-Hop leave the critiquing to the critics
