7 Reasons Why Kanye West Is One Big Walking Contradiction

Kanye West may not have a cutely-called cult like Rih or Bey, but his fans are just as loyal as a hardcore Hive or Army-member. We’ve stood by him through the platinum albums sales and violent run-ins with radio hosts and teen pop stars. But there’s only so much a fan can take.

In the last few years, Kanye has been giving us one contradiction after the other—through his actions and his bars. And well, enough is enough. Call it tough love, but maybe airing out the proverbial dirty laundry will help.

So Kanye, I hope (albeit, in vain) that you’re reading this, because no one wants another verse like your feature on “I Won.”  —A Devout Yet Concerned ‘Ye Fan

 

Kanye West contradiction Kim K

1. Kim Kardashian 

Was it not Mr. West who spit with humorous disdain about the all-too-familiar stereotype of goldiggers? And didn’t he also end that same song with the line about a man leaving his woman for a “white girl,” or, more aptly put, a trophy wife? Oh, the irony of art imitating life.

2. The Kardashian Klan

The contradictions don’t stop with just one Kardashian. Kanye’s new family has a combined number of plastic surgeries that would make Joan Rivers shut up. And yet, Kanye’s mother lost her life while under the knife. Odd, no?

Kanye West contradiction mask

3. Mask

In a now infamous rant at the London Wireless Festival, Kanye told the crowd he wears the Martin Margiela bejeweled mask as sort of a “f-ck you” to the fashion industry saying he can’t do fashion. But it’s a designer mask. Made by someone in the fashion industry. Hmmm…

4. Louis Vuitton Don

We all remember that period in ‘Ye history when you couldn’t catch him without a Louis V monogram somewhere on his ensemble. But when the designer was slow to show love back to his walking advertisement, the once Louis Vuitton Don flipped the script and called for an immediate boycott. Obvi, that didn’t go over too well.

Kanye West contradiction chi rappers

5. Support of “Positive” Chicago Rappers

Back in 2012, Kanye took a Chicago hit made popular by then underground rapper, Chief Keef, and turned it into a summer anthem with the help of a few G.O.O.D. co-stars. And sure he shouts out other Chicago artists who, like Chief Keef, perpetuate violence. But as for those emcees who publicly denounce the Windy City’s gun violence, not so much as a peep from the “Murder to Excellence” co-conspirator.

Kanye West contradiction religion

6. Religion

Old Kanye made no qualms about how much he needed Jesus; like Kathie Lee needs Regis, right? But Yeezus—of all stage monikers—now professes to be a god himself. Shall I grab a bible and look for one of the many scriptures about false idols… or nah?

Kanye West contradiction paps

7. Paparazzi

It’s no surprise that Kanye isn’t fond of photographers snapping away at him while he’s going about his (normal) day. But seriously—he married Kim Kardashian, a woman who would probably call the cameras over for Sunday dinner if she could. Wait, she has already: Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
