I like the Daily Currant because unlike the Onion, the stuff is written just close enough to reality to make you actually buy it for a bit.
I figured Kanye actually said this stuff–he has said crap not that far away from it–until I realized the source. Still, that folks figure he would say such things just says what most people think of the guy.
My favorite line, personally, was after the interviewer asked what Kanye had done to fight racism, and Kanye says, “I’ve blazed a trail with my career… I faced mad racism when I entered this profession. I mean how many black rappers can you name that came before me? I was a pioneer. And now I’m doing the same thing in the fashion world.
“Not to say Mandela wasn’t for real. I have mad respect. I just think we need to keep things in perspective here. Anyone can be replaced. And I think I’m well on my way towards being the next great black leader. I’m already worshiped around the world. And there’s more to come.”
