I *seriously* disagree.

Kanye West has proven himself to be the most self-centered and egotistical performer of recent memory and from his acceptance speech, I would gather also a despicable person as well.

I read your blog post and for the most part you make some decent points. I can't disagree with you that Kanye is extremely "self-centered".

However -- my view point is simple. Kanye makes music. He's good at it. Really good (and his music sales also indicate this as well). That's all I care about. Regardless of what he says outside of the music he's making, I could really care less. I like him for his music not for his viewpoints or how he handles his personal matters.

That's the bottom line and that's all I care about.

I can see where you are coming from -- but understand I look at artists as experts in what their job is... which is making music. That's it. I never have any expectations that anything else outside being good at making music is required for me to like what they do.

Want a better example, take a look at Michael Jackson.
