    Goddamn, man child Prestigious

    Classic christina. Super on brand for her and I could see it somewhat fitting into Stripped aka her magnum opus

    Awkward af with her trying to stay neutral on Kanye tho. Like sis. I know he produced some songs off ur album before all this mess came out and ur cursetina with the timing of it all, but no. U don't need to do that.
    ryan.conde and Jason Tate like this.

    Great time! I don't think she's staying neutral, I just think she's privy to the fact, like almost everyone else in the music industry, that his whole act a couple weeks back was some sort of performance art.
  5. No. Just no. You don't get to boost up the worst people in this country through astonishing ignorance and have people pretend it's "performance art."

    Naw she is excusing him for her own gain tbh

    I thought it was pretty obvious he's reinterpreting Joseph Beouys "America, I Love You"? He even alluded to it in his tweets. Theres obviously an endgame to this for him, I think the album is going to reveal that.
  9. Gross. He emboldened the worst people and raised their platform to millions of people. Gross. Gross. Gross. What is with people wanting to give a pass to someone that has called rape victims liars and handed his platform to bigots? This would be the worst performance “art” of all time.

    You understand what Beouys was trying to say in the 70's right? It's all very gross, but good art is about pushing emotional buttons...AGAIN, I'm saying this is fine with me if this is what he's doing...if he's just trolling or truly embraces these views authentically its disgusting.

    I'll write you into all of my songs Supporter

    What piece are you referencing here? Buey's "I Like America and America Likes Me"?


    There's a very large difference between what Beuys was doing and what Kanye was "doing" in the name of "performance art" (if we're going with that angle). There's a nuance and subtley to Beuys performance piece that Kanye sorely lacks, and contextually its flipped in the way that Beuys interacted with his piece and how it relates to his interaction with "America". Kanye doing what he did over the last few weeks should not be graded by its intent. He rightfully deserves the scathing critiques that he's receiving.

    Yes, this is the piece I was referring to. He vaguely referenced him like 3 weeks ago, and then a couple nods to Andy well as his tweet about reproducing others art in,a different age led me to believe this is what he was doing.

    Even if it was performance art, how dangerous, irresponsible, and damaging would that be. Like it honestly wouldn't be any better because his actions have consequences.

    I completely get what you're saying but he's a entertainer, I don't take anything he says as gospel, same with our entertainer President, they're all a joke. I just think if he is doing a PA piece it's interesting and valid....again, it could all just be another manic episode, so who knows.
