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

Its tough kept pace with countries around 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 announcements and Twitter rows( part one)

After releasing a brand-new way, Facts, on New Years Eve, Kanye followed it up with another new trail, No Parties in LA, on 18 January. At that quality, his forthcoming album was due to be called Whoosh( supplanting 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 work, the book opening was to be combined with a demo for his Yeezy range for Adidas. Oh, and it would be shown in cinemas worldwide. Of course.

You would think, with all 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 Ripples rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa proposed hed pinched the brand-new refer from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to read 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 books all the path through I am your OG and I will be respected as such. All of which elicited 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 “king arthurs round table”, I tell you.

February: Twitter sequences( areas two and three) and the book launch

Well, having a pop at a fellow rapper can get to feel tame sometimes. So why not tweet your support for “the mens” at the centre of a massive sexual-assault scandal instead? On 9 February, West chose to do only that, with the massively unambiguous: BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!! As the Champion Dave Schilling detected: I have a sneaking suspicion Kanye West has a chest full of note cards, and on those note cards there are transgressive explanations written on them. Exclaiming Bill Cosby is innocent of crimes 37 women is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better path to be distracted from that by announcing that your brand-new album has its third brand-new claim 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 epic of So Help Me God/ Swish/ Waves/ The Life of Pablo?

Then, on 11 February, West finally divulged 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 sungs. 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 flow that maintained buffering due to expect, took on an unguarded beauty on the big screen. Alls well that aims 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 became that fucking bitch far-famed. West participated at the Swift condemnation by saying theyd had an hour-long conversation about the chant, and she yielded her praises. As for the album itself, our review by Alexis Petridis detected a distinct shortage of focus. Still, the rest of our scribes liked it sufficient to make it our fourth better book of its first year.

Youd think that would have been enough activity for a few months. But you would be wrong. Dates after liberating 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 $53 m in debt and asked Facebooks Mark Zuckerberg for a$ 1bn be invested in his ideas: Hey, Larry Page Im down for your assistance, very. He also announced he would be liberating another brand-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( constituent four) and album revises( part one)

At last-place, a breather in Westworld. It was a quiet month, with simply the one battle 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 specific a minnie mouse dead-mow-five pate not a mickey mouse dead-mow-five head ). 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 exhausted the month before, he was busy updating it, so when you are logged in to Tidal you faced their chances of listening to a different book to the one youd been listening to the day before.

April: Book updates( part two) and litigations( part 1)

Once again, pacify settled 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 fidgeting 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 is a signatory to Tidal on that promise are less 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 latest book led to an influx of new Tidal subscribers and allowed the service to accumulate users personal information. No matter the obvious chaos smothering the book, though this was the month The Life of Pablo became the first album to top the US plots based primarily on streaming.

May: Suits( part two) and Macca donates support

The eras were get longer and warmer, and West was largely biding out of the headlines. Except when other parties were putting him in them. People such as the Hungarian rock musician Gabor Presser, who filed a clothing in the US district court in Manhattan to suggest that New Slaves, from the book Yeezus, took without permission from his own 1969 chant Gyngyhaj Lny. He required $2.5 m in shatters clearly, he hadnt heard 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 great spokesmen for black people that Wests employment of the N-word in his words was justified, quoting its appearance in their cooperation All Day. Parties like Oprah, whos a bit conservative about that substance, said, You shouldnt do it, even black people shouldnt expend that term. I said, Yeah, but its Kanye! And hes talking about an metropolitan generation that uses that term in a completely different lane. Its different contexts. So I was actually pleased with it.

The month in a Kanye title : Facts

June: Cancelled evidences( part 1) 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 scheduled 2am gig, ensuing in it being nullified and the venue being locked down by authorities. 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 introduced it at the time, an living of the Chicago rappers late 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. Exclusively One has been in development since 2015. It is not yet in browses.

Then the moment wed all been waiting for, the moment where he caused wholly useless offence the release of the video for Famous( the lyric in which he said hed acquired that bitch Taylor Swift famous, if you recollect ). The video featured a rollcall of waxworks of celebrities connected in some manner with West in bunk with him and his wife, Kim Kardashian West. It was a comment on renown, West anticipated. Lena Dunham wasnt amazed she announced it one of the more disturbing artistic efforts in recent storage and “said its” emblematic of crime 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 crimes are still being uncovered and be understood as referring to trauma for the women he assaulted but also massive traumata to “the member states national” consciousness … Now I have to see the prone, unconscious, waxy bodies of famed wives, twisted like theyve been narcotic and chucked aside at a rager? It gives me such a nauseating appreciation of dis-ease.

The month in a Kanye title : Guilt Trip

July: Twitter rows( duty five are available 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 discussing Famous, in which she appeared to approve the song though there was no reference to the that fucking bitch route. Swift answered, 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 psychological response to being announced that fucking bitch in front of the whole world. Who should we call to resolve this one? Thats right advocates. And what did they have to say? That lawyers should be involved. Because if West had entered the call in California, without Swifts consent, he had interrupted the laws and regulations and could face a year in county incarcerate. The reality that West has remained unincarcerated suggests, very much, that Swift thoughts 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, brain 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 said, as he explained why students would want a dorm room designed by him. And who are now we to doubt that realism of anything designed by the man who came up with leather running throbs? Ikea Australia answered 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 $53 m of obligation by opening 21 popup browses around the world, exchanging limited-edition stock for three days only. The brand-new patronizes follow on from Wests popup in New Yorks Soho in March, which he said generated$ 2m( 1.5 m) in sales of items including thrift store cases customised by the rapper for $400, the Guardian reported. So, 21 of those, and hes exclusively $11 m short of paying off his indebtedness. Jobs a good un. After that, beginning his Saint Pablo tour on a theatre that hovered above the gathering, naturally seemed positively restrained.

Autumn, season of clouds and mellowed fruitfulness, and Kanye West concentrating on the project, failing to precipitate any major rows , not insisting on his suitability to design space shuttles , not announcing he should be the leader of Ukip, or anything like that. If anything, he reacted suspiciously like a musician. The Guardian reported that the Saint Pablo substantiate was value five hotshots dynamic and compelling, dont you are familiar with? West announced that he and Drake were making an book together( building it the third album he announced in a year that viewed simply one actually contacts the public ). And he put on his Yeezy Season 4 fad establish, which featured real tigers garmented in galoshes made from the highly treated surface of lions.( It didnt; but you believed it, didnt you ?)

The month in a Kanye title: Highlights

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

The Saint Pablo tour encountered its first hitches, when West sauntered off stagecoach halfway through a reveal after learning that Kim had been parted from her properties at gunpoint by a mob in Paris. He then cancelled two appearances, moving them to December( more on that subsequently ). As for the robbers, they fled on bicycles. Just thought youd like to know that detail. He was feeling 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 chosen 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 bestows happenings, which is normally consisted of publicly explaining sometimes to the recipients face, while they received their award why he thought someone else should have got the gong.

November: Nullified demoes( character 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 voted in the presidential election, but if he had, he would have voted for Donald Trump. The army was unimpressed. Nor, apparently, were they won round by his explanation that a Trump presidency would push racists into the open. A few weeks later, in Sacramento, he launched into a ranting against Beyonc, Hillary Clinton, radio stations and Mark Zuckerberg. He managed to play three sungs before treading 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 tired. He stayed for a few weeks 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 word was that he got eight nominations. The bad news was that none of them is currently in big categories register of its first year, album of the year, song of its first year, or even best metropolitan contemporary album, though he did get a good rap album gesture. The worse word was that Frank Ocean didnt get any nominations, though that was because he didnt defer an entering before the 30 September cutoff date. Well see whether West persists to his have committed themselves to boycott the awardings on 12 February. If he was feeling dismissed, he could at least take comfort in The Life of Pablo being voted the fourth good album of its first year by Guardian critics.

But, hey, Grammys, bolt you West had bigger fish to fry. Not only any big fish, but the biggest fish of all. The whale shark of fried fish. A fish so big-hearted youd need to open a chain of chippies to fry it. And that fish had a identify: 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 repeat the two movements of Nigel Farage. The ground for high-level visits, he said, was to discuss multicultural issues, including bullying, reinforcing schoolteachers, modernising curriculums and brutality in Chicago. Were sure Trump has now gave them surface 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 intends he seems to have gone back on his threat to run in 2020.
