Thus Spoke Kanye

Philip M. writes from England:

After taking some time out to think about life after rushing the stage and grabbing that award from the hands of Taylor Swift at a music award program last year, Kanye West has returned. With diamond teeth. To summarise the article:

Kanye’s Prologue

When Kanye was thirty years old, he left his ‘hood and the b-ball court of his ‘hood and went to Hawaii. Here he enjoyed his spirit and his solitude, and for ten months did not tire of them. But at last his heart turned, and one morning he rose with the dawn, stepped before the world’s media, and spoke to it thus:

“No, Ellen. They ain’t grillz. I’ve ripped out my bottom teeth, and replaced them with diamonds. I just thought that diamonds looked cooler.”

The story, linked above by Philip, is at the Mail. I find it wonderfully instructive that Kanye thought that the way to get past the harm to his reputation caused by his brutish behavior toward Taylor Swift, was to replace his lower teeth with diamonds. His message seems to be: “See, world, I’m not just a plain old barbarian. I’m a barbarian with diamond teeth.”

D. from Seattle writes:

Replacing teeth is for sissies, not rock stars (not that Kanye qualifies as a rock star, but that’s a different topic—let’s give him the benefit of the doubt). He should have replaced his leg with a flame thrower and his arm with an electric guitar—now that’s a rock star. And while he’s at it, he should have replaced his head with a PlayStation running Grand Theft Auto. That would have been much better for everyone involved.
