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 packed 12 months of megalomania

January: Album proclamations and Twitter sequences( part 1)

After releasing a new track, Facts, on New Years Eve, Kanye followed it up with another new racetrack, No Parties in LA, on 18 January. At that object, his forthcoming album was due to be called Whoosh( replacing the previous So Help Me God ), and was its make 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 album launching was to be combined with a establish 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 Waves rather than Swish, Wiz Khalifa intimated hed pinched the new refer from the Harlem rapper Max B. Never one to understand enticement without taking it, West piled in. Your first single was corny as fuck and most there after No one I know has ever listened to one of your books all the direction through I am your OG and I will be respected as such. All of which precipitated 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 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 mens” at the centre of a massive sexual-assault gossip instead? On 9 February, West chose to do just that, with the massively unambiguous: BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!! As the Guardian Dave Schilling celebrated: I have a sneaking suspicion Kanye West has a casket full of note cards, and on those note cards there are transgressive explanations written on them. Extol Bill Cosby is innocent of raping 37 dames is probably just one of them. Still, theres no better course to distract attention from that by announcing that your brand-new album has its third brand-new title 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 saga of So Help Me God/ Swish/ Waves/ The Life of Pablo?

Then, on 11 February, West eventually exposed the album 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, the information 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 deterred buffering due to expect, took on an unguarded attractivenes on the big screen. Alls well that terminates well, then. But hang in! 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 shaped that fucking bitch famous. West responded to the Swift condemnation by saying theyd had an hour-long speech about the sung, and she afforded her bless. As for the book itself, our review by Alexis Petridis detected a distinct deficiency of focus. Still, the rest of our columnists liked it enough to make it our fourth best album of the year.

Youd think that would have been enough activity for a few months. But you would be wrong. Daylights after liberating 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 $53 m in debt and expected Facebooks Mark Zuckerberg for a$ 1bn investment in his ideas: Hey, Larry Page Im down for your assistance, too. He too 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 sequences( place four) and album revises( part one)

At last, a respite in Westworld. It was a quiet month, with simply the one crusade 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 leader not a mickey mouse dead-mow-five thought ). He also said he might never exhausted 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 informing it, so when you are logged in to Tidal you faced the prospect of listening to a different album to the one youd been listening to the day before.

April: Book revises( part two) and suits( part 1)

Once again, allay reconciled over Kanye West. He began the month by announcing that a freshly revised, remixed and remastered form of The Life of Pablo would be streaming on all major services from 1 April, though he was indicated that hed carry on fidgeting with it for the foreseeable. The trouble, though, was that in February he had told the world his album would only ever be on Tidal; devotees whod is a signatory to Tidal on that promise were rather disgruntled by that development. One Justin Baker-Rhett, in fact, was so disgruntled that he launched a litigation, alleging the promise of exclusive access to Wests recent book had contributed to an influx of new Tidal subscribers and allowed the services offered to obtain customers personal information. No substance the apparent chaos surrounding the book, though this was the month The Life of Pablo grew the first album to surface the US plots based primarily on streaming.

The month in a Kanye title : Bad News

May: Lawsuits( part two) and Macca assurances support

The epoches were getting longer and warmer, and West was largely abiding out of the headlines. Except when other parties were putting him in their own homes. Parties such as the Hungarian rock musician Gabor Presser, who filed a dres in the US district court in Manhattan to suggest that New Slaves, from the album Yeezus, took without allow from his own 1969 song Gyngyhaj Lny. He wanted $2.5 m in detriments clearly, he hadnt looked 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 employment of the N-word in his words was apologized, citing its form in their cooperation All Day. Beings like Oprah, whos a little republican about that stuff, said, You shouldnt do it, even black people shouldnt exploit that statement. I said, Yeah, but its Kanye! And hes talking about an city generation that uses that parole in a completely different mode. Its the context. So I was actually pleased with it.

The month in a Kanye title : Facts

June: Nullified substantiates( part 1) and a abuse culture video

West started getting back into the swaying of things as summertime 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 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 peculiarity, as the Guardian introduced it at the time, an living of the Chicago rappers late mother Donda West, who travels 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 is still not in browses.

Then the moment wed all been waiting for, the moment where he justification wholly useless offence the release of the video for Famous( the song in which he said hed obligated that fucking bitch Taylor Swift famous, if you recall ). The video peculiarity 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 prestige, West anticipated. Lena Dunham wasnt impressed she announced it one of the more disturbing artistic efforts in recent storage 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 crimes are still being uncovered and be understood as referring to trauma for the status of women he assaulted but likewise massive injuries to “the member states national” consciousness … Now I have to see the prone, instinctive, waxy bodies of famous women, twisted like theyve been pharmaceutical and chucked aside at a rager? It gives me such a nauseating appreciation of dis-ease.

July: Twitter rows( persona 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 row, 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 course. Swift answered, 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 people psychological response to being called that fucking bitch in front of the whole world. Who should we call to resolve this one? Thats right solicitors. And what did they have to say? That lawyers should be involved. Because if West had recorded the call in California, without Swifts consent, he had smashed the laws and regulations and could face a year in district jail. The fact that West has remained unincarcerated proposes, very much, that Swift belief 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 engages with Swift, but theres no time off when youre Kanye West. At least he got into the silly-season sway, psyche you, when he told Radio 1 of his dream to intend furniture for Ikea. Yo Ikea, allow Kanye to create, allow him to make this thing because you know what, I want a couch that he makes, I miss 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 realism of anything designed by the man who came up with leather 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, please. Meanwhile, he set about are seeking to clear that $53 m of indebtednes by opening 21 popup browses all over the world, selling limited-edition merchandise for three days simply. The new stores follow on from Wests popup in New Yorks Soho in March, which he said generated$ 2m( 1.5 m) in the sale of parts including thrift accumulation casings 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, beginning his Saint Pablo tour on a stage that winged above the gathering, naturally seemed positively restrained.

Autumn, season of clouds and mellowed fruitfulness, and Kanye West concentrating on the study, is inadequate to cause any significant rows , not contending 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 behaved suspiciously like a musician. The Guardian reported that the Saint Pablo present was value five suns dynamic and compelling, dont you know? West was indicated that he and Drake were making an album together( manufacturing it the third largest album he announced in a year that insured simply one actually contacts the public ). And he put on his Yeezy Season 4 mode establish, which peculiarity 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 presents( part two) and Grammy politics( part 1)

The Saint Pablo tour encountered its first hiccups, when West went off stagecoach halfway through a indicate after learning that Kim had been parted from her controls at gunpoint by a mob in Paris. He then cancelled two presents, moving them to December( more on that afterwards ). As for the robbers, they fled on bicycles. Just thought youd like to know that detail. He was feeling 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 album I listen to the most this year is Frank Oceans album. Ill tell you this right now, if his album is not nominated 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 programme on apportions episodes, which has usually consisted of publicly clarifying sometimes to the recipients face, while they received their award why he thought someone else should have got the gong.

November: Cancelled demoes( proportion 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 had voted in favour of the presidential election, but if he had, he would have voted for Donald Trump. The army was unimpressed. Nor, apparently, were they prevailed round by his explanation that a Trump presidency would pressure prejudiceds into the open. A few days 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 nullified when West was admitted to hospital to be treated for exhaustion. 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 report and some bad news. The good bulletin was that he got eight nominations. The bad news was that none of them were in the big categories enter of the year, album of the year, psalm of its first year, or even excellent city contemporary album, though he did get a better rap album gesture. The worse news was that Frank Ocean didnt get any nominations, though that was because he didnt submit an introduction before the 30 September cutoff date. Well be interested to know whether West persists to his promise to boycott the awardings on 12 February. If he was feeling ignored, he could at the least take comfort in The Life of Pablo being voted the fourth better album of its first year by Guardian reviewers.

But, hey, Grammys, screw 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 big-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 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 just 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 repeat the movements of Nigel Farage. The reason for his visit, he said, was to discuss multicultural issues, including browbeat, supporting teaches, modernising curriculums and savagery in Chicago. Were sure Trump has now set them top 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 words of Trump. On the bright side, it necessitates he seems to have gone back on his threat to run in 2020.
