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 proclamations and Twitter sequences( part one)

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

You would think, with everything 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 Wavings rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa indicated hed pinched the brand-new name from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to learn 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 all the course 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( constituents 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 support for the three men at the centre of a massive sexual-assault gossip instead? On 9 February, West chose to do precisely that, with the massively unambiguous: BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!! As the Protector Dave Schilling detected: I have a sneaking suspicion Kanye West has a container full of note cards, and on those note cards there are transgressive affirmations written on them. Proclaiming Bill Cosby is innocent of abusing 37 women is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better room to distract attention from that by announcing that your brand-new album has its third brand-new entitlement in less than a month. 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 saga 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 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 flow that impeded buffering due to requirement, took on an unguarded allure on the big screen. Alls well that resolves well, then. But hang on! Whats this? Its Taylor Swifts people saying she wasnt at all happy at Kanye rapping about her: I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I manufactured that bitch far-famed. West responded to the Swift condemnation by saying theyd had an hour-long gossip about the sung, and she caused her favors. As for the book itself, our review by Alexis Petridis detected a distinct shortfall 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 one month. But you would be wrong. Epoches after exhausting 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 $53 m in debt and expected Facebooks Mark Zuckerberg for a$ 1bn investing in his ideas: Hey, Larry Page Im down for your help, extremely. He likewise announced he would be liberating another new album in the summer. But he didnt. Nor did he turn out for Preston North End funds, though in all honest he never claimed he would do that.

March: Twitter rows( area four) and album modernizes( part one)

At last, a breather in Westworld. It was a quiet month, with precisely the one campaign of tweets( with Deadmau5, who was affronted when a photograph West tweeted appeared to show him applying Pirate Bay. West responded by inviting the EDM star to perform at his daughters birthday defendant with specifically a minnie mouse dead-mow-five foreman not a mickey mouse dead-mow-five thought ). He also said he might never secreted a CD again. Perhaps he was tied up at work, because despite The Life of Pablo having been secreted the month before, he was busy updating 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 revises( part two) and suits( part 1)

Once again, soothe resolved over Kanye West. He began the month by announcing that a recently 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 question, though, was that in February he had told the world his album would only ever be on Tidal; followers whod signed up to Tidal on that promise were rather disgruntled by that development. One Justin Baker-Rhett, in fact, was so disgruntled that he propelled a lawsuit, alleging the promise of exclusive better access to Wests latest book led to an influx of brand-new Tidal readers and allowed the services offered to compile useds personal information. No subject the apparent chaos surrounding the album, though this was the month The Life of Pablo grew the first album to surface the US plots based primarily on streaming.

May: Lawsuits( part two) and Macca pledges support

The dates were getting longer and warmer, and West was largely abiding out of the headlines. Except when other people were putting him in them. Beings such as the Hungarian rock musician Gabor Presser, who filed a clothing in the US district court in Manhattan alleging that New Slaves, from the book Yeezus, took without dispensation from his own 1969 song Gyngyhaj Lny. He missed $2.5 m in injuries clearly, he hadnt heard 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 implement of the N-word in his lyrics was vindicated, citing its impression in their collaboration All Day. People like Oprah, whos a bit conservative about that trash, announced, You shouldnt do it, even black people shouldnt utilization that message. I spoke, Yeah, but its Kanye! And hes talking about an metropolitan generation that uses that word in a quite different direction. Its the context. So I was actually pleased with it.

The month in a Kanye title : Facts

June: Offset depicts( part one) and a assault culture video

West started getting back into the swing 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 scheduled 2am gig, ensuing in it being offset and the venue being locked down by governments. Well, he was always going to bounce back from that, which he did by unveiling the trailer to his Alone One video game. The trailer peculiarity, as the Guardian employed it at the time, an living of the Chicago rappers late mother Donda West, who goes on the back of a winged white horse that is galloping through the cloud towards heaven. Just like Call of Duty. Exclusively One has been in development since 2015. It was still not in shops.

Then the moment united all been waiting for, the moment where he made wholly unnecessary offence the release of the video for Famous( the lyric in which he said hed reached that bitch Taylor Swift famed, if you recall ). The video boasted a rollcall of waxworks of fames connected in some manner with West in plot with him and his wife, Kim Kardashian West. It was a comment on honour, West calculated. Lena Dunham wasnt affected she called it one of the most disturbing aesthetic efforts in recent memory and said it was emblematic of assault culture. And theres more. As assaults are Periscoped across the web and girls is suicide after being exposed in ways they never imagined … While Bill Cosbys misdemeanours are still being uncovered and understood as 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 wives, twisted like theyve been medicine and chucked aside at a rager? It gives me such a repelling feel of dis-ease.

July: Twitter rows( constituent 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 discussing Famous, in which she appeared to approve the song though there was no reference to the that bitch wire. 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 people emotional response to being announced that fucking bitch in front of the entire world. Who should we call to resolve this one? Thats right advocates. And what did they have to say? That solicitors should be involved. Because if West had recorded the call in California, without Swifts consent, he had transgressed the rules and could face a year in county incarcerate. The detail that West has remained unincarcerated advocates, very much, that Swift thought 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 pushes with Swift, but theres no time off when youre Kanye West. At least he got into the silly-season waver, thought 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 berth that he makes, I want a chair that he makes, West said, as he explained why students would want a dormitory room designed by him. And who are now we to doubt that practicality of anything designed by the man who came up with leather jogging 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, satisfy. Meanwhile, he set about trying to clear that $53 m of debt by opening 21 popup patronizes around the world, selling limited-edition merchandise for three days only. The brand-new browses follow on from Wests popup in New Yorks Soho in March, which he told generated$ 2m( 1.5 m) in sales of items including thrift accumulation coats customised by the rapper for $400, the Guardian reported. So, 21 of those, and hes exclusively $11 m short of paying off his obligations. Jobs a good un. After that, embarking his Saint Pablo tour on a stage that flew above the gathering, naturally seemed positively restrained.

Autumn, season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, and Kanye West concentrating on the effort, failing to precipitate any major sequences , not holding on his suitability to layout 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 indicate was worth five suns dynamic and compelling, dont you are familiar? West announced that he and Drake were making an book together( establishing it the third album he announced in a year that assured only one actually contacts the public ). And he put on his Yeezy Season 4 fashion evidence, which featured real tigers dressed 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: Offset demoes( part two) and Grammy politics( part one)

The Saint Pablo tour encountered its first hiccups, when West ambled off theatre halfway through a prove after received information that Kim had been parted from her controls at gunpoint by a gang in Paris. He then cancelled two appearances, moving them to December( more on that afterwards ). As for the raiders, they fled on bicycles. Just thought youd like to know that item. He was seeming 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 book I listen to the most this year is Frank Oceans book. Ill tell you this right now, if his album is not chosen in no categories, Im not showing up to the Grammys. As masters, weve got to come together to fight the bullshit. This was entirely consistent with his plan on accolades contests, which is normally 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: Offset reveals( area 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 mob was unimpressed. Nor, apparently, were they triumphed round by his explanation that a Trump presidency would push prejudiceds into the open. A few days later, in Sacramento, he launched into a ranting against Beyonc, Hillary Clinton, radio stations and Mark Zuckerberg. He managed to play three songs before going 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 discharged.

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

The Grammy nominations were announced, and West had some good information and some bad news. The good word was that he got eight nominations. The bad news was that none of them was already in the big categories preserve of the year, book of the year, hymn of its first year, or even excellent metropolitan contemporary book, though he did get a excellent rap album nod. The worse report was that Frank Ocean didnt get any nominations, though that was because he didnt submit an entering before the 30 September cutoff date. Well be checked whether West persists to his have committed themselves to boycott the accolades on 12 February. If he was feeling rejected, he could at the least take comfort in The Life of Pablo being voted the fourth best album of its first year by Guardian critics.

But, hey, Grammys, screw you West had big fish to fry. Not merely any big fish, but the biggest fish of all. The whale shark of deep-fried fish. A fish so big-hearted youd need to open a series of chippies to fry it. And that fish had a appoint: 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 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 replicate the movements of Nigel Farage. The rationale for his visit, he spoke, was to discuss multicultural issues, including bullying, reinforcing coaches, modernising curriculums and savagery in Chicago. Were sure Trump has now gave them pinnacle of his political agenda. He then signed off with a hashag: #2024. Which surely signifies West is planning to run for the White House in 2024, after two terms of Trump. On the bright side, it entails he seems to have gone back on his menace to run in 2020.
