It’s no Martha Stewart posting pictures from her trip to the Bahamas, but Kanye West has got himself a little blog. Sure, he’s been at it for some time now, but it seems that Mr. West’s blog hasn’t quite found its…identity.
The post currently at the top of the site is an advertisement for the futuristic Placentero lounge chair with an attractive woman sitting in it, on which the rapper—or his assistant, more likely—has drawn a conversation bubble that says, “I’m Chillin’.”
The next post is another advertisement. This time of a gold Supra hightop sneaker again with an attached conversation bubble that says, “Samantha Ronson Loves Me!!!”
Others posts seem to exist to let Mr. West clear things up. Like the post entitled, “I DIDN’T RELEASE THE OTHER FLASHING LIGHTS VIDEOS!!! PEOPLE LEAKED THEM.” (Okay, okay. Stop shouting.) The first line of the post says, “I shot 3 vids for flashing lights cuz I ain’t like the first 2.” It goes on to explain the experience of shooting the videos and ends with the line: “For fun, I want yall 2 read this whole post in the Grandma’s Boy JP robot voice LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!” LOL, indeed.
Mr. West is no slacker. There are seven posts marked with today’s date, and nine from yesterday. His commenters are equally prolific. That post with the Placentero chair, had 37 comments and counting.
And in case you’re going to criticize him for his spelling and grammar, Mr. West wants you to know, “And I know that’s incorrect english but that’s how I talk when I want 2. Oh and I’ve just been 2 busy 2 get at the New York Times for all that his Ego BLAH BLAH BLAH bullshit so stay tuned.” Besides, the guy’s breakout album was called College Dropout.
