Just when the world was beginning to think that Hater Nation had lost its king, Kanye West returned to let us know he hates…everyone.
During a Saturday show in London, he took verbal shots at Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, and everybody who accepts corporate sponsorship…excluding himself and future baby-mama Kim Kardashian, of course.
“I got love for Hov, but I ain’t f—in’ with that ‘Suit & Tie,”’ Kanye said about JT’s comeback single featuring his one-time collaborator Jay-Z. He then told the Grammys to, “suck my d—,” and pretty much said the same to music execs, corporate sponsors and, of course, country music’s biggest sweetheart. Apparently Hollywood drama lasts way longer than high-school drama does. But let’s not fight fire with fire, ‘cause Kanye’s not all bad. Check out the competition, then let us know whose side you’re on: Kanye’s or the The World’s?
+ Kanye West
Last year, Kim and Kanye popped into a Los Angeles children’s hospital, where they visited and played with patients. He also performed at the 12.12.12 Concert for Sandy Relief, which raised $30 million for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Kanye may sometimes be an a–, but let’s not forget he has to live up to the biggest a– of them all: Kim Kardashian’s…and when he’s not writing raps about it, he’s often on Twitter, going on odd but intellectual rants about race, politics, and education.
+ The World
From supporting gay marriage to raising $4 million for Obama’s reelection campaign, Jay-Z is arguably one of the most politically involved rappers in the game. Justin Timberlake may sing about “Suits & Ties,” but he looked his best in a casual, meaningful tee at the Stand Up To Cancer telethon. And from encouraging kids to stay in school to auctioning off her own belongings for charity, Taylor Swift is such a giving person that only 14 people in the world could possibly hate her: 13 exes and Kanye West.
