Kanye West Declares (IN ALL CAPS!!!!!!) That He’s Not Gay

gallery-3120771AVN published an “interview” (which it has since retracted and made disappear from the Internets) with Kanye West in which the hip-hop star/fashion icon said that he was gay. AVN stands for ‘Adult Video News’, which explains why they didn’t bother to check their source, which was, I kid you not, a bulletin board posting on AllHipHop.com, claiming to be an interview from Kanye that said, “I’m open to doing porn. Hell, I’ll even do bisexual scenes — myself, another man and a woman or just myself and two women.”

Nor did they think to themselves, “Wait a second, isn’t Kanye performing at the inauguration? How does he have time to say he’d do bisexual porn on some bulletin board?” So, shockingly, it turns out that AVN is not a trusted news source, but the damage was done and Kanye turned to his blog to respond to the gay rumors–using many, many capital letters.

Says Kanye:

“YOOOO WHY WON’T YOU LET ME BE GREAT!!! I HAD THE TWO GREATEST DAYS OF MY LIFE AND WHEN I GET BACK FROM THE LOUIE SHOW I READ SOME SHIT CLAIMING I SAID I’M DOWN TO DO PORN AND SOME BISEXUAL PORN!!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE THE AVN WOULD POST FIRST PEOPLE BELIEVED THE TWITTER/STEVEN COLBERT THING, ROLLING STONE EVEN PRINTED IT!!!! NOW SOMEBODY HAS BEEN HACKING INTO MY MYSPACE AND SOMEBODY’S ACTUALLY HACKED INTO MY PERSONAL GMAIL ACCOUNT AND HAS BEEN EMAILING PEOPLE FROM IT… HEY WORLD I NO LONGER HAVE A GMAIL! I FOUND OUT I HAD TWELVE UNAUTHORIZED SKYPE ACCOUNTS UNDER MY NAME!!! THIS ALL IN THE PAST FOUR DAYS. WELCOME TO KANYE WEST WORLD! …. IT’S NOT OFFICIAL. I JUST GAVE THE PERFORMANCE OF MY LIFETIME FOR OUR NEW PRESIDENT … THEN I FLEW TO PARIS AND THEY DEBUTED MY NEW SHOES THAT I DESIGNED WITH LOUIE VUITTON WHICH WAS A DREAM COME TRUE. PLEASE I BEG YOU, GIVE ME A BREAK!!!!! PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LET ME BE GREAT!!! WHO HAVE I HURT SO BAD THAT THEY WANT TO DESTROY ME? WHO HAVE I EVER SPOKE ABOUT SO NEGATIVELY? I JUST WAS SPEAKING WITH OUR NEW PRESIDENT TWO DAYS AGO… AND NOW THIS…. SIDEBAR… NEVER TAKE A PICTURE FROM MY OBAMA PERFORMANCE AND PUT IT NEXT TO A BS QUOTE LIKE THAT! THAT’S IN POOR TASTE! THAT UNDERMINES WHAT MY CONTRIBUTION TO THAT EVENT WAS AND SLAPS EVERYBODY WHO FELT UPLIFTED BY THAT PERFORMANCE IN THE FACE! A PICTURE SAYS A THOUSAND WORDS… LOOK HOW FRESH MY SUIT IS… NUFF SAID!”

We were going to fix the case on it, but we gotta let Kanye be Kanye, right?

      Why do rappers find it necessary to emulate an IQ of 37 in order to gain “street cred”?

      For that matter, why do so many people feel the need to dumb themselves down online? Every day I come across countless postings that read like: “Ur just jealous cos shes the won with the beamer.” Or, “Its definately time for this country to find it’s new hope, Obama rocks stop hatin lol.”

      They said for years that the proliferation of Internet access would give us a more educated society. I think the opposite has happened! I’ve watched for years as the Internet itself (once a haven for geeky academics) became dumber and dumber until it surpassed levels of idiocy I’ve ever seen before. Yikes.

      I’m not much of a fan, the all caps is horrific, but he has a point. Although, if he’s continually being hacked, how do we know this is even him talking? hmmmm

      @AzGaybe: Kanye West is one of the few rappers out there who spoke out against homophobic lyrics in songs and the pervasiveness of homophobia in the hip hop community his reward has been constant questions about his sexuality. There are many out and proud black people in this country and your comment is OFFENSIVE. If you knew anything about Kanye West you would know he has the biggest mouth in the business and would be the loudest most outspoken gay man in America if he was gay. Everyone isn’t gay remember about 90% of the population is straight.

      Sometimes I’m amazed by the ignorance on this site. West has been a strong advocate for gays.

      Many of the comments here also reflect subtle racism, like JJJ’s comment. Obama has nothing to do with rap. He’s a politician, a lawyer, a legal scholar, a husband, and a father. He is not a rap music artist.

      Blake : Someone strictly being an advocate for gays doesn’t cut it. Are we that pathetic? This West character has a stupid face, an afro-mullet, is musically talentless, and sends his own mother, fatally, to a back-alley plastic surgeon. Rap, in general, is a celebration, and exploitation, of lowlife criminal society and claimed victimhood. The standards are raised now for African-Americans, with Obama, and rightfully so. Gangsta rap culture has reached its point where it should fizzle out.

      Japhy,

      I’m disappointed in how you positioned this posting. You basically set West up for derision. An obviously phony article from AVN was picked up by another site and then rescinded.

      West published a note saying that the article was false. Given that West has repeatedly spoken out for acceptance at gays, you don’t see a problem with taking a swipe at him? Why attack someone who is definitely more friend than foe?

      ignorance is pervasive. the comments about kanye sending his mother to a “back-alley hack” are absolutely abominable. va-JJJJ, do you have NO decency?

      for those of you in the cultural un-knowingness, KW sold more music that ANY other rap artist in the last few years, a DOZEN Grammy Awards and has ‘crossed-over’ writing hits with world-class artists as diverse as Labi Siffre and Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx.

      Everyone is entitled to privacy. Frankly, I think he probably is gay (mostly from his fervent womanizing, but never a girlfriend, and a um, fondness, for designer clothing that only a ‘Butch Queen’ could possess. But so what? If he isn’t ready to come-out yet that’s his bizness. Stop hatin’, you ignoramuses or ignorami if that makes Pragmatist feel better. (Note to Prag: Language is a living, ever changing medium of communication. Let people speak in what ever way they feel capable. Do you think Shakespeare was grammatically correct, or didn’t use 16th-century slang? Of course, he did. He was PRAGMATIC enough to be concerned with conveying a message and not a slavish victim of the latest edition of the Oxford style manual…why do you think they keep publishing new editions? duh? ROTFLMAO! the world moves ahead wif or wif-out yo’ ass, Dvlaries. You’ll catch up with the 21st-century….one day…maybe.)

      ..and also to JJJJ. Did you know that Kanye’s mother, Dr. Diondra West was a career academic and the Chair of the English Dept at Chicago State University, where Kanye studied writing and music production? Did you know that that “back-alley” you claim to know so damn much about was in Beverly fucking Hills? Did you know the “hack” doctor you speak of was a California board certified plastic surgeon? Did you know Kanye and Pharrel have a ‘special’ relationship? Then keep yo’ mouf shut, before you stick you foot in it again…

      Right on @MzLibertee: Thank you, Mzlibertee. The only one with any class or gratitude on this board. Kanye has supported gays to the black culture. Let’s not bite the hand that helps us. Ungrateful bitches.

      My gay dar buzzes when I see KW but he is not a hack –he is intelligent, outspoken and comes from a very accomplished family. Ms West was told by many that she was high risk for surgery and went ahead. She consented knowing the risks. I am a white male but believe good rap is an art form just as valid as any other. He is not a homophobe but my gay dar is usually right .
