Taylor, Trump and Twitter- a year in living conditions of Kanye West

Its tough keeping pace with the world of Kanye West. So let us take the hard work out of it and present to you the highlights of a jam-packed 12 months of megalomania

January: Album proclamations and Twitter sequences( part one)

After releasing a brand-new track, Facts, on New Years Eve, Kanye followed it up with another new trail, No Parties in LA, on 18 January. At that level, his forthcoming album was due to be called Swish( replacing the previous So Help Me God ), and was its creator said the best book of all time. On 26 January, he announced he would be premiering it at Madison Square Garden in New York. Never one to shun cross-promotional work, the book opening was to be combined with a display for his Yeezy range for Adidas. Oh, and it would be shown in cinemas worldwide. Of course.

You would think, with everything that to take care of, West might have better things to do than having sequences on Twitter. You would be wrong. After West announced the new album would now be called Wavings rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa recommended hed pinched the new epithet from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to ensure bait without taking it, West piled in. Your first single was corny as fucking and most there after No one I know has ever listened to one of your albums all the way through I am your OG and I will be respected as such. All of which prompted a most peculiar replies from Khalifas girlfriend( and Wests ex ), Amber Rose: Are u mad Im not around to play in ur asshole anymore? #FingersInTheBootyAssBitch. Its just like the Algonquin round table, I tell you.

February: Twitter sequences( components two and three) and the album launch

Well, having a pop at a fellow rapper can get to feel tamed sometimes. So why not tweet your is supportive of the man at the centre of a massive sexual-assault gossip instead? On 9 February, West chose to do only that, with the massively unambiguous: BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!! As the Protector Dave Schilling mentioned: I have a sneaking suspicion Kanye West has a casket full of note cards, and on those note cards there are transgressive statements written on them. Extol Bill Cosby is innocent of raping 37 wives is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better behavior to divert attention from that by announcing that your new album has its third new entitle in less than a month. Now it was to be called The Life of Pablo. Half the tracklist had changed from when it was called Swish. Surely that would be it for the tale of So Help Me God/ Swish/ Waves/ The Life of Pablo?

Then, on 11 February, West eventually discovered the book at Madison Square Garden: he played it on his laptop from the stage, and appeared to get an email after one of the lyrics. Still, “its been” fun at the cinema, reckoned Ben Beaumont-Thomas: What may have seemed ramshackle in Madison Square Garden, or watching at home on the official brook that obstructed buffering due to request, took on an unguarded glamour on the big screen. Alls well that terminates well, then. But hang in! Whats this? Its Taylor Swifts people saying she wasnt at all joyous at Kanye rapping about her: I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I acquired that fucking bitch famous. West responded to the Swift condemnation by saying theyd had an hour-long conference about the sung, and she passed her bless. As for the book itself, our review by Alexis Petridis detected a distinct deficiency of focus. Still, the rest of our writers liked it enough to make it our fourth better album of its first year.

Youd think that would have been enough activity for one month. But you would be wrong. Daylights after secreting The Life of Pablo which by the time it arrived at the Tidal streaming service was already different to the version premiered in New York he told the world( via Twitter) that he was $53 m in debt and questioned Facebooks Mark Zuckerberg for a$ 1bn investing in his ideas: Hey, Larry Page Im down for your help, very. He too announced he would be releasing another new book in the summer. But he didnt. Nor did he turn out for Preston North End reserves, though in all honesty he never claimed he would do that.

March: Twitter sequences( proportion four) and album modernizes( part 1)

At last, a breather in Westworld. It was a quiet month, with just the one struggle of tweets( with Deadmau5, who was affronted when a photograph West tweeted appeared to show him expending Pirate Bay. West responded by inviting the EDM star to perform at his daughters birthday party with specifically a minnie mouse dead-mow-five president not a mickey mouse dead-mow-five leader ). He also said he might never secreted a Cd again. Perhaps “hes been” tied up at work, because despite The Life of Pablo having been released the month before, he was busy modernizing it, so when you are logged in to Tidal you faced future prospects of listening to a different album to the one youd been listening to the day before.

April: Book updates( part two) and litigations( part one)

Once again, appease determined over Kanye West. He began the month by announcing that a newly updated, remixed and remastered version of The Life of Pablo would be streaming on all major services from 1 April, though he added that hed carry on dabbling with it for the foreseeable. The difficulty, though, was that in February he had told the world his album would only ever be on Tidal; devotees whod are signatories to Tidal on that predict were relatively disgruntled by that development. One Justin Baker-Rhett, in fact, was so disgruntled that he propelled a litigation, alleging the promise of exclusive access to Wests latest album have all contributed to an influx of brand-new Tidal readers and allowed the services offered to compile users personal information. No concern the apparent chaos encircling the book, though this was the month The Life of Pablo became the first book to top the US graphs based primarily on streaming.

The month in a Kanye title : Bad News

May: Suits( part two) and Macca pledges support

The periods were get longer and warmer, and West was mainly remaining out of the headlines. Except when other parties were putting him in them. Parties such as the Hungarian rock musician Gabor Presser, who filed a suit in the US district court in Manhattan to suggest that New Slaves, from the album Yeezus, took without dispensation from his own 1969 chant Gyngyhaj Lny. He required $2.5 m in shatterings clearly, he hadnt met Wests tweets about being $53 m in debt. Or people like Sir Paul McCartney, who told the world from his position as one of the largest spokesmen for black people that Wests give of the N-word in his melodics was vindicated, quoting its look in collaborative relationships All Day. People like Oprah, whos a bit republican about that substance, announced, You shouldnt do it, even black people shouldnt application that word. I responded, Yeah, but its Kanye! And hes talking about an urban generation that uses that term in a completely different route. Its the context. So I was actually pleased with it.

June: Cancelled sees( part 1) and a crime culture video

West started getting back into the swaying of things as summer arrived. First, a popup concert at the 1,500 -capacity Webster Hall ended in the requisite chaos after many thousands tried to get into the hastily scheduled 2am gig, ensuing in it being offset and the venue being locked down by sovereignties. Well, he was always going to bounce back from that, which he did by unveiling the trailer to his Only One video game. The trailer peculiarity, as the Guardian applied it at the time, an animation of the Chicago rappers belatedly mother Donda West, who travels on the back of a winged white horse that is galloping through the cloud towards heaven. Just like Call of Duty. Only One has been in development since 2015. It has not yet come into browses.

Then the moment wed all “re waiting for”, the moment where he stimulated utterly useless offence the release of the video for Famous( the lyric in which he said hed constructed that fucking bitch Taylor Swift far-famed, if you withdraw ). The video peculiarity a rollcall of waxworks of luminaries connected in some way with West in bunk with him and his wife, Kim Kardashian West. It was a comment on honour, West supposed. Lena Dunham wasnt affected she called it one of the most disturbing aesthetic efforts in recent retention and “says its” emblematic of rape culture. And theres more. As assaults are Periscoped across the web and girls commit suicide after being exposed in ways they never imagined … While Bill Cosbys misdemeanours are still being uncovered and understanding of damage for the status of women he assaulted but also massive bruises to “the member states national” consciousness … Now I have to see the prone, subconscious, waxy bodies of famous dames, twisted like theyve been narcotic and chucked aside at a rager? It gives me such a repelling gumption of dis-ease.

July: Twitter sequences( part five extended to Snapchat and Instagram)

Would there be no end to the West-Swift kerfuffle? This time it was Kim Kardashian West restarting the row, by uploading to her Snapchat account film snippets of West and Swift on the phone exploring Famous, in which she appeared to approve the song though there was no reference to the that bitch text. Swift greeted, although she chose Instagram: Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me that bitch in his song? It doesnt exist because it never happened. You dont get to control someones psychological response to being announced that bitch in front of the entire world. Who should we call to resolve this one? Thats right lawyers. And what did they have to say? That advocates should be involved. Because if West had entered the call in California, without Swifts consent, he had smashed the law and could face a year in district jail. The knowledge that West has remained unincarcerated intimates, very much, that Swift guessed the lawyers could just keep out of it as far as she was concerned.

August: Dreaming of Ikea and opening popup shops

The dog days of August were free of battles with Swift, but theres no time off when youre Kanye West. At least he got into the silly-season swing, memory you, when he told Radio 1 of his dream to intend furniture for Ikea. Yo Ikea, allow Kanye to create, allowed to make this thing because you know what, I miss a couch that he makes, I want a chair that he makes, West added, as he explained why students would want a dormitory room designed by him. And who the hell is we to doubt that feasibility of anything designed by the man who came up with skin plodding breathes? Ikea Australia responded with a mockup of a Yeezy bed, big enough to recreate the Famous video. The Famous video? Tells not go back there again, delight. Meanwhile, he set about trying to clear that $53 m of obligation by opening 21 popup patronizes of all the countries, selling limited-edition stock for three days simply. The new stores follow on from Wests popup in New Yorks Soho in March, which he enunciated generated$ 2m( 1.5 m) in sales of items including thrift storage cases customised by the rapper for $400, the Guardian reported. So, 21 of those, and hes only $11 m short of be paid by his debts. Jobs a good un. After that, beginning his Saint Pablo tour on a stage that flew above the audience, naturally seemed positively restrained.

Autumn, season of clouds and mellow fruitfulness, and Kanye West concentrating on the occupation, is inadequate to precipitate any major sequences , not holding on his suitability to design space shuttles , not announcing he should be the heads of state of Ukip, or anything like that. If anything, he reacted suspiciously like a musician. The Guardian reported that the Saint Pablo display was worth five suns dynamic and compelling, dont you are familiar with? West was indicated that he and Drake were making an book together( constituting it the third largest album he announced in a year that ascertained simply one actually reach the public ). And he put on his Yeezy Season 4 pattern depict, which featured real beasts garmented in galoshes made from the highly treated skin of lions.( It didnt; but you believed it, didnt you ?)

The month in a Kanye title: Highlights

October: Nullified indicates( part two) and Grammy politics( part one)

The Saint Pablo tour encountered its first hitches, when West sauntered off stage halfway through a testify after received information that Kim had been parted from her wealths at gunpoint by a mob in Paris. He then cancelled two substantiates, moving them to December( more on that later ). As for the robbers, they absconded on bicycles. Just thought youd like to know that detail. He was experiencing vivacious by now, and when the Saint Pablo tour resumed, he told the crowd in Oakland how the 2017 Grammys needed to pan out: The album I listen to the most this year is Frank Oceans album. Ill tell you this right now, if his album is not elected in no categories, Im not showing up to the Grammys. As creators, weve got to come together to fight the bullshit. This was entirely consistent with his policy on honors contests, which has usually consisted of publicly interpreting sometimes to the recipients face, while they received their award why he thought someone else should have got the gong.

November: Nullified reveals( character three) and Trump time( part 1)

There will be no armchair diagnosis here, but goodness knows November was not a great month in Westworld. Addressing the crowd at his San Jose show, he said he hadnt therefore voted in the presidential election, but if he had, he would have voted for Donald Trump. The bunch was unimpressed. Nor, apparently, were they prevailed round by his explanation that a Trump presidency would thrust prejudiceds into the open. A few weeks later, in Sacramento, he launched into a tirade against Beyonc, Hillary Clinton, radio stations and Mark Zuckerberg. He managed to play three lyrics before treading off stage. And that was that for the Saint Pablo tour, which was rapidly nullified when West was admitted to hospital to be treated for tired. He stayed for a week before being discharged.

December: Grammy politics( part two) and Trump time( part two)

The Grammy nominations were announced, and West had some good word and some bad news. The good news was that he got eight nominations. The bad news was that none of them were in the big categories account of its first year, album of its first year, song of the year, or even good city contemporary album, though he did get a better rap album gesture. The worse bulletin was that Frank Ocean didnt get any nominations, though that was because he didnt defer an introduction before the 30 September cutoff date. Well see whether West lodges to his promise to boycott the awards on 12 February. If he was feeling ignored, he could at the least take comfort in The Life of Pablo being voted the fourth good book of its first year by Guardian commentators.

But, hey, Grammys, clamped you West had big fish to fry. Not simply any big fish, but the most difficult fish of all. The whale shark of fried fish. A fish so large-hearted youd need to open a chain of chippies to fry it. And that fish had a call: Donald Trump. It would be fair to say the general action when West went to meet the president-elect in Trump Tower the taste-free skyscraper in Manhattan that is Trumps Bond-villain lair was not, I cant wait to hear what these two famed purveyors of commonsense “re saying”, so much as, Good God, even he should know this is beyond the pale. But no; he didnt think it beyond the pale to replicate the movements of Nigel Farage. The reasonablenes for his visit, he did, was to discuss multicultural issues, including bully, subsidizing schoolteachers, modernising curriculums and savagery in Chicago. Were sure Trump has now set them pinnacle of his policy agenda. He then signed off with a hashag: #2024. Which surely makes West is planning to run for the White House in 2024, after two terms of Trump. On the bright side, it means he seems to have gone back on his menace to run in 2020.
