I have a couple thoughts on Kanye West:
I’m willing to give him another chance because he can still do stuff like this (‘this’ being the SNL performance.) This is what I want from a professional entertainer who’s going for a spectacle. Don’t half-ass it; go big like Kanye and Lady Gaga are doing.
I think that the way he is releasing music is ingenious. Every Friday = GOOD Friday. We get an incredible song packed with special guests for free. His forthcoming album will most likely be released in a traditional fashion, but what he is doing now get him positive attention from all sides (he looks like a nicer person, people love free stuff,etc.)
