Taylor, Trump and Twitter- a year in the life 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 edicts and Twitter sequences( part one)

After releasing a brand-new line, Facts, on New Years Eve, Kanye followed it up with another new way, No Parties in LA, on 18 January. At that item, his forthcoming album was due to be called Whoosh( changing the previous So Help Me God ), and was its producer 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 task, the book opening was to be combined with a display for his Yeezy range for Adidas. Oh, and it would be shown in cinema worldwide. Of course.

You would think, with all that to take care of, West might have better things to do than having rows on Twitter. You would be wrong. After West announced the new book would now be called Ripples rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa recommended hed pinched the brand-new reputation from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to meet enticement 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 books the whole way through I am your OG and I will be respected as such. All of which elicited a most peculiar response 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 rows( personas two and three) and the book launch

Well, having a pop at a fellow rapper can get to feel tamed sometimes. So why not tweet your support for the three men at the centre of a massive sexual-assault scandal instead? On 9 February, West chose to do simply that, with the massively unambiguous: BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!! As the Keeper Dave Schilling mentioned: I have a sneaking suspicion Kanye West has a container full of note cards, and on those note cards there are transgressive announcements written on them. Exclaiming Bill Cosby is innocent of crimes 37 ladies is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better acces to divert attention from that by announcing that your new album has its third brand-new name in less than a few months. Now it was to be called The Life of Pablo. Half the tracklist had changed from when it was announced Swish. Surely that would be it for the story of So Help Me God/ Swish/ Waves/ The Life of Pablo?

Then, on 11 February, West ultimately uncovered the book at Madison Square Garden: he played it on his laptop from the stage, and appears to be get an email after one of the hymns. Still, it was fun at the cinema, reckoned Ben Beaumont-Thomas: What may have seemed ramshackle in Madison Square Garden, or watching at home on government officials flow that maintained buffering due to ask, took on an unguarded attractivenes on the big screen. Alls well that objective well, then. But hang on! Whats this? Its Taylor Swifts people saying she wasnt at all glad at Kanye rapping about her: I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I prepared that fucking bitch far-famed. West participated at the Swift condemnation by saying theyd had an hour-long dialogue about the hymn, and she handed her favors. As for the book itself, our review by Alexis Petridis detected a distinct scarcity of focus. Still, the rest of our novelists liked it enough to make it our fourth good book of its first year.

Youd think that would have been enough activity for a few months. But you would be wrong. Daytimes after releasing 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 assistance, too. He too announced he would be exhausting another new book in the summer. But he didnt. Nor did he turn out for Preston North End funds, though in all integrity he never claimed he would do that.

March: Twitter rows( place four) and album revises( part one)

At last, a breather in Westworld. It was a quiet month, with only the one war of tweets( with Deadmau5, who was affronted when a photo West tweeted appeared to show him exploiting Pirate Bay. West responded by inviting the EDM star to perform at his daughters birthday party with specifically a minnie mouse dead-mow-five foreman not a mickey mouse dead-mow-five brain ). He also said he might never liberated a CD again. Perhaps he was tied up at work, because despite The Life of Pablo having been liberated the month before, he was busy updating 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: Album informs( part two) and lawsuits( part 1)

Once again, mollify terminated over Kanye West. He began the month by announcing that a newly modernized, 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 tinkering with it for the foreseeable. The trouble, though, was that in February he had told the world his album was able to ever be on Tidal; love whod are signatories to Tidal on that promise were relatively disgruntled by that development. One Justin Baker-Rhett, in fact, was so disgruntled that he propelled a suit, alleging the promise of exclusive access to Wests recent book have contributed to an influx of new Tidal customers and allowed the services offered to collect useds personal information. No topic the seeming chaos surrounding the book, though this was the month The Life of Pablo became the first album to top the US charts based primarily on streaming.

The month in a Kanye title : Bad News

May: Suits( part two) and Macca assurances support

The periods were get longer and warmer, and West was largely biding out of the headlines. Except when other parties were putting him in their own homes. People 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 permission from his own 1969 lyric Gyngyhaj Lny. He missed $2.5 m in detriments clearly, he hadnt read Wests tweets about being $53 m in debt. Or people like Sir Paul McCartney, who told the world from its own position as one of the largest spokesmen for black people that Wests apply of the N-word in his lyricals was justified, quoting its appearance in their collaboration All Day. Parties like Oprah, whos a little republican about that nonsense, responded, You shouldnt do it, even black people shouldnt employment that text. I suggested, Yeah, but its Kanye! And hes talking about an metropolitan generation that uses that message in a completely different style. Its different contexts. So I was actually pleased with it.

The month in a Kanye title : Facts

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

West started getting back into the fluctuating of things as summer arrived. First, a popup concert at the 1,500 -capacity Webster Hall ended in the requisite chaos after numerous thousands tried to get into the hastily scheduled 2am gig, arising in it being cancelled and the venue being locked down by experts. 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 featured, as the Guardian applied it at the time, an living of the Chicago rappers belatedly mother Donda West, who journeys on the back of a winged white horse that is galloping through the clouds towards heaven. Just like Call of Duty. Merely One has been in development since 2015. It is not yet in stores.

Then the moment wed all “re waiting for”, the moment where he justification wholly superfluous offence the release of the video for Famous( the ballad in which he said hed seen that fucking bitch Taylor Swift famous, if you withdraw ). The video boasted a rollcall of waxworks of celebrities connected in some way with West in bunk with him and his wife, Kim Kardashian West. It was a comment on notoriety, West guessed. Lena Dunham wasnt affected she announced it one of the more disturbing artistic efforts in recent remembering 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 understood as damage for the status of women he assaulted but too massive injuries to “the member states national” consciousness … Now I have to see the prone, subconscious, waxy bodies of far-famed wives, twisted like theyve been medication and chucked aside at a rager? It gives me such a repelling gumption of dis-ease.

July: Twitter rows( 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 sequence, by uploading to her Snapchat account film snippets of West and Swift on the telephone considering Famous, in which she appeared to approve the song though there was no reference to the that fucking bitch position. Swift responded, 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 around the 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 recorded the call in California, without Swifts consent, he had separated the law and could face a year in county jail. The detail that West has remained unincarcerated recommends, very much, that Swift believed the lawyers could just keep out of it as much as is she was concerned.

August: Dreaming of Ikea and opening popup shops

The dog days of August were free of opposes with Swift, but theres no time off when youre Kanye West. At least he got into the silly-season swinging, head you, when he told Radio 1 of his dream to layout furniture for Ikea. Yo Ikea, allow Kanye to create, allow him to make this thing because you know what, I require a couch that he makes, I crave a chair that he makes, West did, as he explained why students would want a dorm room designed by him. And who are we to doubt that practicality of anything designed by the man who came up with skin running gasps? Ikea Australia answered with a mockup of a Yeezy bed, big enough to recreate the Famous video. The Famous video? Lets not go back there again, please. Meanwhile, he set about trying to clear that $53 m of debt by opening 21 popup patronizes around the world, selling limited-edition merchandise for three days exclusively. The brand-new patronizes follow on from Wests popup in New Yorks Soho in March, which he responded generated$ 2m( 1.5 m) in sales of parts including thrift accumulate cases customised by the rapper for $400, the Guardian reported. So, 21 of those, and hes only $11 m short of paying off his obligations. Jobs a good un. After that, embarking his Saint Pablo tour on a theatre that moved above the gathering, naturally seemed positively restrained.

Autumn, season of clouds and mellowed fruitfulness, and Kanye West concentrating on the act, is inadequate to cause any major rows , not holding on his suitability to intend space shuttles , not announcing he should be the leader of Ukip, or anything like that. If anything, he behaved suspiciously like a musician. The Guardian reported that the Saint Pablo evidence was value five starrings dynamic and compelling, dont you know? West announced that he and Drake were making an album together( obliging it the third largest album he announced in a year that encountered only one actually reach the public ). And he put on his Yeezy Season 4 manner present, which featured real tigers dressed in galoshes made from the highly treated scalp of lions.( It didnt; but you believed it, didnt you ?)

The month in a Kanye title: Highlights

October: Offset depicts( part two) and Grammy politics( part one)

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

November: Cancelled depicts( persona 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 gang was unimpressed. Nor, apparently, were they acquired round by his explanation that a Trump presidency would push racists 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 anthems before ambling off theatre. 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 prior to being discharged.

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

The Grammy nominations were announced, and West had some good bulletin 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 preserve of its first year, album of the year, carol of its first year, or even excellent metropolitan contemporary book, though he did get a best rap album gesture. The worse word was that Frank Ocean didnt get any nominations, though that was because he didnt submit an entry before the 30 September cutoff date. Well see whether West stays to his promise to boycott the gives on 12 February. If he was feeling rejected, he could at least take comfort in The Life of Pablo being voted the fourth best album of its first year by Guardian pundits.

But, hey, Grammys, clamped you West had big fish to fry. Not exactly any big fish, but the biggest fish of all. The whale shark of deep-fried fish. A fish so big youd need to open a series of chippies to fry it. And that fish had a reputation: Donald Trump. It would be fair to say the general reaction 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 conclude for high-level visits, he responded, was to discuss multicultural issues, including bullying, subscribing educators, modernising curriculums and brutality in Chicago. Were sure Trump has now made them crest of his political agenda. He then signed off with a hashag: #2024. Which surely symbolizes West is planning to run for the White House in 2024, after two periods of Trump. On the bright side, it means he seems to have gone back on his threat to run in 2020.
