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

Its tough keeping up with “the worlds” of Kanye West. So let us take the hard work out of it and present to you the highlights of a packed 12 months of megalomania

January: Album notices and Twitter rows( part one)

After releasing a new line, Facts, on New Years Eve, Kanye followed it up with another brand-new line, No Parties in LA, on 18 January. At that object, his forthcoming album was due to be called Whoosh( supplanting the previous So Help Me God ), and was its maker 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 launching was to be combined with a demonstrate 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 Waves rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa suggested hed pinched the new mention from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to realize 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 provoked 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 “king arthurs round table”, I tell you.

February: Twitter rows( segments 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 is supportive of the three men at the center of a massive sexual-assault scandal instead? On 9 February, West chose to do just 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 testimonies written on them. Exclaiming Bill Cosby is innocent of crimes 37 dames is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better behavior to divert attention from that by has declared that your new album has its third brand-new claim 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 ultimately uncovered 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 anthems. 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 the official torrent that preserved buffering due to challenge, took on an unguarded knockout on the big screen. Alls well that terminates 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 obligated that fucking bitch far-famed. West responded to the Swift condemnation by saying theyd had an hour-long dialogue about the psalm, and she gave her supports. As for the album itself, our review by Alexis Petridis detected a distinct shortage of focus. Still, the rest of our columnists liked it enough to make it our fourth good book of the year.

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

March: Twitter rows( character four) and album informs( part one)

At last, a breather in Westworld. It was a quiet month, with only the one crusade of tweets( with Deadmau5, who was affronted when a photo West tweeted appeared to show him using 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 premier ). He also said he might never release a CD again. Perhaps he was tied up at work, because despite The Life of Pablo having been exhausted the month before, he was busy modernizing it, so when you are logged in to Tidal you faced the prospect of listening to a different book to the one youd been listening to the day before.

April: Album modernizes( part two) and lawsuits( part 1)

Once again, soothe determined over Kanye West. He began the month by announcing that a freshly informed, 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 twiddling with it for the foreseeable. The problem, though, was that in February he had told the world his album would only ever be on Tidal; love whod signed up to Tidal on that predict were relatively disgruntled by these new developments. One Justin Baker-Rhett, in fact, was so disgruntled that he launched a litigation, alleging the promise of exclusive better access to Wests latest book have contributed to an influx of brand-new Tidal readers and allowed the service to obtain consumers personal information. No substance the seeming chaos surrounding the album, though this was the month The Life of Pablo became the first book to surface the US plots based primarily on streaming.

The month in a Kanye title : Bad News

May: Suits( part two) and Macca donates support

The eras were get longer and warmer, and West was primarily abiding out of the headlines. Except when other people were putting him in their own homes. Parties such as the Hungarian rock musician Gabor Presser, who filed a suit in the US district court in Manhattan alleging that New Slaves, from the book Yeezus, took without allow from his own 1969 sung Gyngyhaj Lny. He missed $2.5 m in injuries clearly, he hadnt accompanied 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 implement of the N-word in his melodics was justified, quoting its look in collaborative relationships All Day. Beings like Oprah, whos a little conservative about that substance, supposed, You shouldnt do it, even black people shouldnt help that term. I alleged, Yeah, but its Kanye! And hes talking about an metropolitan generation that uses that parole in a quite different style. Its the context. So I was actually pleased with it.

The month in a Kanye title : Facts

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

West started getting back into the fluctuating of things as summertime 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 planned 2am gig, ensuing in it being cancelled and the venue being locked down by powers. 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 put it at the time, an living of the Chicago rappers sometime mother Donda West, who rides on the back of a winged white horse that is galloping through the cloud towards heaven. Just like Call of Duty. Merely One has been in development since 2015. It is not yet in browses.

Then the moment wed all “re waiting for”, the moment where he caused wholly superfluous offence the release of the video for Famous( the anthem in which he said hed established that bitch Taylor Swift famed, if you echo ). The video featured a rollcall of waxworks of luminaries connected in some manner with West in bottom with him and his wife, Kim Kardashian West. It was a comment on reputation, West anticipated. Lena Dunham wasnt amazed she announced it one of the most disturbing aesthetic efforts in recent remembering and said it was 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 felonies are still being uncovered and understanding of traumas for the women he assaulted but also massive bruises to “the member states national” consciousness … Now I have to see the prone, instinctive, waxy bodies of far-famed females, twisted like theyve been drugged and chucked aside at a rager? It gives me such a repelling sense of dis-ease.

July: Twitter sequences( portion 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 phone debating Famous, in which she appeared to approve the song though there was no reference to the that bitch pipeline. Swift responded, though 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 emotional response to being called that fucking 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 transgressed the rules and could face a year in district penitentiary. The happening that West has remained unincarcerated recommends, very much, that Swift concluded 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 combats with Swift, but theres no time off when youre Kanye West. At least he got into the silly-season change, thinker you, when he told Radio 1 of his dream to pattern furniture for Ikea. Yo Ikea, allow Kanye to create, allow him to make this thing because you know what, I want a berth that he makes, I miss a chair that he makes, West remarked, as he explained why students would want a dorm room designed by him. And who are we to doubt that realism of anything designed by the man who came up with leather plodding throbs? Ikea Australia answered with a mockup of a Yeezy bed, big enough to recreate the Famous video. The Famous video? Makes not go back there again, please. Meanwhile, he set about trying to clear that $53 m of indebtednes by opening 21 popup patronizes around the world, selling limited-edition merchandise for three days exclusively. The brand-new patronizes follow on from Wests popup in New Yorks Soho in March, which he suggested generated$ 2m( 1.5 m) in sales of pieces including thrift accumulation casings customised by the rapper for $400, the Guardian reported. So, 21 of those, and hes only $11 m short of be paid by his indebtedness. Jobs a good un. After that, inaugurating his Saint Pablo tour on a stagecoach that ran above the gathering, naturally seemed positively restrained.

Autumn, season of clouds and mellowed fruitfulness, and Kanye West concentrating on the wreak, failing to prompt any significant sequences , not insisting on his suitability to blueprint space shuttles , not announcing he “mustve been” the leader of Ukip, or anything like that. If anything, he behaved suspiciously like a musician. The Guardian reported that the Saint Pablo depict was importance five wizards dynamic and compelling, dont you are familiar? West announced that he and Drake were making an album together( constituting it the third largest album he announced in a year that envisioned simply one actually contacts the public ). And he put on his Yeezy Season 4 pattern depict, which peculiarity real beasts 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 evidences( part two) and Grammy politics( part 1)

The Saint Pablo tour encountered its first glitches, when West moved off theatre halfway through a demonstrate after learning that Kim had been parted from her controls at gunpoint by a mob in Paris. He then cancelled two proves, moving them to December( more on that eventually ). As for the raiders, they fled 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 book. Ill tell you this right now, if his album is not elected in no categories, Im not showing up to the Grammys. As masters, weve got to come together to fight the bullshit. This was altogether consistent with his policy on awardings 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: Nullified pictures( constituent three) and Trump time( part one)

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 audience was unimpressed. Nor, apparently, were they won round by his explanation that a Trump presidency would thrust prejudiceds into the open. A few days later, in Sacramento, he launched into a rant against Beyonc, Hillary Clinton, radio stations and Mark Zuckerberg. He managed to play three ballads before treading off stage. And that was that for the Saint Pablo tour, which was rapidly offset when West was admitted to hospital to be treated for tired. He stayed for a week before being exhausted.

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

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

But, hey, Grammys, clamped you West had bigger fish to fry. Not simply any big fish, but the biggest 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 rationale for his visit, he enunciated, was to discuss multicultural issues, including bullying, supporting teachers, modernising curriculums and brutality in Chicago. Were sure Trump has now introduced them crest of his political agenda. He then signed off with a hashag: #2024. Which surely necessitates West is planning to run for the White House in 2024, after two periods of Trump. On the bright side, it symbolizes he seems to have gone back on his threat to run in 2020.
