Kanye to Journalist: You’re a Miserable Person, I’m an Artist
Kanye West is an artist. Also, he's an extremist, and that means you can't judge him. Or that's what he said in a recent blog aimed at Entertainment Weekly's Chris Willman, who reviewed the opening night of 'Ye's Glow in the Dark tour in Seattle, giving it a paltry B+.
West's response: "Yo, anybody that's not a fan; don't come to my show. For what?! To try to throw yall to cents in? Yall rated my album sh--ty and now yall come to the show and give it a B+. What's a B+ mean? I'm an extremist. It's either pass or fail! A+ or F-! You know what, f--- you and the whole f---ing staff!!! I know I shouldn't dignify this with a comment, but the reviewer threw a jab at all the artists."
The rap star went on to question Willman's ability to enjoy the show. "I just wanna know when was the last time you enjoyed yourself. If you can't have fun and loose yourself at this tour it's a good chance you're a very miserable person. I actually feel sorry for you guys. Your job forces you to not have fun anymore. Grab a drink, holla at some nice girls, and party b----!!! You don't know s--- about passion and art. You'll never gain credibility at this rate. You're f---ing trash! I make art. You can't rate this. I'm a real person. I'm not a pop star. I don't care about anything but making great art. Never come [to] one of my shows ever again, you're not invited and if you see me... BOW!!! This is not pop, it's pop art!"

Chris Willman, what part of 'Drunk and Hot Girls' did you not get? Did you fail art history or something? ART means you give Kanyeezy an A+ everytime, all the time! Otherwise you're not invited to his next rave party.
ART: "I'm like a fly Malcolm X, buy any jeans necessary."
Kanye went on to post a quasi apology:
"I did go in a little [too] much on that one. I'm sure there are some cool people who work over there and had nothing [to] do with that review. With all that said.... "I'm still the greatest!!!" lol!!"
