Jesus Christ Superstar
While taking a break from extolling the virtues of gold diggers to loyal disciples who ain't checkin' for no broke nukka, he espouses self-fellatory praise as the 11th commandment:
"In America, they want you to accomplish these great feats, to pull off these David Copperfield-type stunts," he says. "You want me to be great, but you don't ever want me to say I'm great?"Kanye is being selfless enough to die for our sins. Isn't that precious? Unfortunately, I won't be able to extend my gratitude as I have a one-way boarding pass on the Triple 6 Express. I suppose I can count myself in the minority of people really don't give a rat's ass about getting worked up over the imagery. But predictably, someone has to take the bait and America's Catholic League fell hook, line and sinker. Spokeswoman Kiera McCaffrey states, "It's moronic. I mean, Kanye West as Jesus? He's a pop star." You mean kinda how Jim Caviezel was merely an actor yet got branded with the evangelical seal of approval in spite of the whole Passion of the Christ thing being chalked up as pretty much the gospel according to Mel Gibson. Love him, hate him, just don't ignore him. And this classic move out of the shock rock playbook insures that the ego hasn't landed. Let the countdown to an on-air Grammy implosion begin.
"If I was more complacent and I let things slide, my life would be easier, but you all wouldn't be as entertained," says West.
"My misery is your pleasure."
