I am not a fangirl for sure, I am more of a casual fan of his. But he seems really self aware and weird and I think it would be really interesting to just like, hang out and have lunch and some beers or whatever.
Ok, I'm officially a fan. The College Dropout is straight up phenomenal. I love taking an interest in an artist that already has a plethora of material for me to check out. I'll be immersed in his discography for quite some time.
You are making me curious Pea. I feel like I am missing out on something, but I am pretty sure I will be wasting my time by even attempting to like his stuff. I have never been into hip-hop or whatever Kanye is classified as. I have had times in my life where I listened to some rap and hip-hop but it never lasts. Sir-mix-a-lot, Easy E, Snoop, Too Short, NWA, Too Live Crew, Dr. Dre, and most recently Kid Cudi for about a week. The closest thing I get to any kind of hip-hop/rap is older Michael Franti and Rage Against the Machine. Thats quite a stretch too.

Backlash against a performer because of his personality is the stupidest. Fucking. Thing. Everyone whose music you enjoy is a huge asshole. I've never sat through a complete Kanye album, but I've heard enough to know that whatever kind of insane douchebag he is, he is one of the most aggressively creative people working in music today.

Gaga's doin' SOMETHING right. She's got the aesthetic down, just her music is for shit. What I can't understand is why the public at large is so interested in something so aggressively WEIRD. I mean, if people wanna see weird stuff they should just come over to my house for a movie night.
