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

After releasing a brand-new racetrack, Facts, on New Years Eve, Kanye followed it up with another new track, No Parties in LA, on 18 January. At that object, his forthcoming album was due to be called Swish( ousting the previous So Help Me God ), and was its maker said the best album 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 act, the album propel was to be combined with a picture 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 book would now be called Curves rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa proposed hed pinched the new appoint from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to encounter 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 albums the whole way through I am your OG and I will be respected as such. All of which provoked 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( portions 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 man at the centre of a massive sexual-assault gossip instead? On 9 February, West chose to do merely that, with the massively unambiguous: BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!! As the Guardian 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 accounts written on them. Extol Bill Cosby is innocent of crimes 37 girls is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better acces to distract attention from that by announcing that your new album has its third new name 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 story of So Help Me God/ Swish/ Waves/ The Life of Pablo?

Then, on 11 February, West eventually discovered the album at Madison Square Garden: he played it on his laptop from the stage, and appears to be get an email after one of the carols. 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 government officials creek that obstructed buffering due to ask, took on an unguarded beauty 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 established that bitch far-famed. West responded to the Swift condemnation by saying theyd had an hour-long communication about the psalm, and she rendered her boons. As for the book itself, our review by Alexis Petridis detected a distinct need of focus. Still, the rest of our columnists liked it sufficient to make it our fourth excellent album of its first year.

Youd think that would have been enough activity for a few months. But you would be wrong. Periods after releasing The Life of Pablo which by the time it reached the Tidal streaming service was already different to the version premiere 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 assistance, extremely. He too announced he would be liberating another new book in the summer. But he didnt. Nor did he turn out for Preston North End substitutes, though in all integrity he never claimed he would do that.

March: Twitter rows( percentage four) and album modernizes( part 1)

At last, a respite in Westworld. It was a quiet month, with exactly the one conflict 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 defendant with specifically a minnie mouse dead-mow-five front not a mickey mouse dead-mow-five brain ). He also said he might never release a CD again. Perhaps “hes been” tied up at work, because despite The Life of Pablo having been liberated the month before, he was busy updating it, so whenever you 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 revises( part two) and suits( part 1)

Once again, appease determined over Kanye West. He began the month by announcing that a freshly 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 was able to ever be on Tidal; love whod are signatories to Tidal on that predict were relatively disgruntled by these new developments. One Justin Baker-Rhett, in fact, was so disgruntled that he propelled a litigation, alleging the promise of exclusive access to Wests recent book led to an influx of brand-new Tidal readers and allowed the services offered to compile users personal information. No substance the self-evident chaos encircling the album, though this was the month The Life of Pablo became the first album to surface the US graphs based primarily on streaming.

May: Suits( part two) and Macca donates support

The daylights were going longer and warmer, and West was primarily staying out of the headlines. Except when other parties were putting him in their own homes. Beings such as the Hungarian rock musician Gabor Presser, who filed a dres 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 required $2.5 m in mars clearly, he hadnt met 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 great spokesmen for black people that Wests give of the N-word in his lyrics was apologized, quoting its figure in collaborative relationships All Day. Parties like Oprah, whos a bit republican about that stuff, told, You shouldnt do it, even black people shouldnt use that parole. I told, Yeah, but its Kanye! And hes talking about an city generation that uses that term in a quite different course. Its the context. So I was actually pleased with it.

June: Offset presents( part one) and a abuse culture video

West started getting back into the shaking 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 planned 2am gig, resulting in it being offset 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 boasted, as the Guardian gave it at the time, an living of the Chicago rappers belatedly mother Donda West, who razzes on the back of a winged white horse that is galloping through the clouds towards heaven. Just like Call of Duty. Exclusively One has been in development since 2015. It has not yet come into browses.

Then the moment marriage all “re waiting for”, the moment where he induced utterly wasteful offence the release of the video for Famous( the chant in which he said hed seen that bitch Taylor Swift famed, if you echo ). The video featured a rollcall of waxworks of personalities connected in some way with West in bunk with him and his wife, Kim Kardashian West. It was a comment on popularity, West calculated. Lena Dunham wasnt affected she called it one of the most disturbing artistic efforts in recent remember 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 understood as traumas 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 girls, twisted like theyve been doped and chucked aside at a rager? It gives me such a sickening sense of dis-ease.

July: Twitter sequences( fraction 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 path. 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 emotional response to being called that fucking bitch in front of the entire world. Who should we call to resolve this one? Thats right solicitors. 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 divulged the laws and regulations and could face a year in county incarcerate. The information that West has remained unincarcerated indicates, very much, that Swift speculated 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 campaigns with Swift, but theres no time off when youre Kanye West. At least he got into the silly-season jive, subconsciou you, when he told Radio 1 of his dream to design furniture for Ikea. Yo Ikea, allow Kanye to create, allowed to make this thing because you know what, I require a plot 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 plodding pants? Ikea Australia responded with a mockup of a Yeezy bed, big enough to recreate the Famous video. The Famous video? Makes not go back there again, delight. Meanwhile, he set about trying to clear that $53 m of debt by opening 21 popup shops of all the countries, selling limited-edition merchandise for three days exclusively. The brand-new browses follow on from Wests popup in New Yorks Soho in March, which he added generated$ 2m( 1.5 m) in sale of components including thrift accumulate jackets 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 stage that hovered above the gathering, naturally seemed positively restrained.

Autumn, season of clouds and mellow fruitfulness, and Kanye West concentrating on the drive, is inadequate to precipitate any significant sequences , not insisting 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 demonstrate was worth five stars dynamic and compelling, dont you know? West was indicated that he and Drake were making an album together( clearing it the third largest album he announced in a year that accompanied exclusively one actually contacts the public ). And he put on his Yeezy Season 4 fashion appearance, which boasted 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 sees( part two) and Grammy politics( part 1)

The Saint Pablo tour encountered its first hitches, when West ambled off stagecoach halfway through a appearance after received information that Kim had been parted from her wealths at gunpoint by a gang in Paris. He then cancelled two depicts, moving them to December( more on that subsequently ). As for the raiders, they absconded on bicycles. Just thought youd like to know that item. He was find spunky 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 elected in no categories, Im not showing up to the Grammys. As creators, weve got to come together to fight the bullshit. This was exclusively consistent with his policy on awards events, which has usually consisted of publicly excusing sometimes to the recipients face, while they received their award why he thought someone else should have got the gong.

November: Cancelled presents( part 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 mob was unimpressed. Nor, apparently, were they triumphed round by his explanation that a Trump presidency would oblige 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 carols before going off stage. And that was that for the Saint Pablo tour, which was rapidly cancelled when West was admitted to hospital to be treated for fatigue. He stayed for a week prior to being exhausted.

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

The Grammy nominations were announced, and West had some good news 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 the year, anthem of its first year, or even good metropolitan contemporary book, though he did get a good rap album nod. The worse word was that Frank Ocean didnt get any nominations, though that was because he didnt submit an entering 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 least take comfort in The Life of Pablo being voted the fourth best book of its first year by Guardian pundits.

But, hey, Grammys, bolt you West had bigger fish to fry. Not exactly 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 series of chippies to fry it. And that fish had a mention: 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 have to say, so much as, Good God, even he should know this is beyond the pale. But no; he didnt think it beyond the pale to repeat the two movements of Nigel Farage. The ground for his visit, he answered, was to discuss multicultural issues, including bully, corroborating schoolteachers, modernising curriculums and savagery in Chicago. Were sure Trump has now threw 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 necessitates he seems to have gone back on his threat to run in 2020.
