Kanye Has A Mancrush

| Filed under: Justin TimberlakeKanye West

fiddddy1.jpg

Who is this person and what has he down to the old Kanye West?

The rapper with the insanely large ego wrote an idolizing song about Jay-Z on his new album and now he's saying really nice things about Justin Timberlake.

"My biggest inspiration and biggest competition is Justin Timberlake," Kanye tells the October issue of XXL magazine. "He's the only other person that gets an across-the-board response and respect level - black radio, white radio. If Justin hadn't come out and killed the game, I can't say that my album, singles and videos would be on the same level that they're on."

How magnanimous of him!

"We push each other," says West. "I look at me and Justin like Prince and Michael Jackson in their day."

Oh, there he goes! That's the Kanye we know and love know!

Pumping his own ego, West boasts…

"I feel like my lyrics are, if not THE, then equal to, the realest lyrics out," he says. "I connected with so many people without talkin' about guns and drugs. … It's harder to go to work 365 days than shoot a person in one day."

And, just to add some whipped cream on his humble pie, he says, "… When people come up to you like, 'That was really good,' you're supposed to play stupid, like, 'Wow, you really think so?' Because people can't really handle the truth," he continues. "But I am the truth. I'd rather be hated for what I am than loved for what I'm not."

We can handle the truth Kanyeizzle. But not YOUR truth!

    Comparing Kanye, Justin Timberlake, and Michael Jackson to Prince is an insult!!

    PRINCE is a musical genius! NO ONE COMPARES to Prince. Prince is an honest to god musician who can do it all. Never mind JT bringing sexy back, SEXY NEVER LEFT!!!! One word, PRINCE.

    Michael Jackson and Prince. Is this dude out his mine. Justin please Justin is a thief. Usher,Ralph Tresvant, are the real thing Justin gets paid to do the white version of soul music he is not original. Kanye please lyrically you are wack, how can he compare himself to Prince and MJ there is nothing original about Justin and Kanye nothing at all. Kanye is dope beat maker thats it. As far as stage artist ,lyricist he sucks. Justin is fake Kanye you should think twice before u say shit about a person who let janet jackson swing from a fuckin tree. Justin is corny. Justin is your inspiriation thats why you cant rhyme ya fuckin coon what about Rakim,Nas,KrS1 I hate KANYE WEST!!!

  20. Whatever says – reply to this

    Of course his lyrics are the "realest" Black people are so "real" that they have to remind themselves and everyone around them on a daily basis that they are "the realest", "keeping it real." For real. Really.

  24. Mr. Me says – reply to this


    24

    prince and michael jackson pushed each other? i think there are better examples of artists who have pushed each other than those two… uh, maybe Lennon and McCartney, or maybe Gauguin and Van Gogh?… Kanye, maybe you need to expand the list of artists you like to ripoff…

    He was complimenting another artist…very publicly; which for Kanye (I think) is pretty big/different.

    Puhleeeeeeezzzzzzzeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    You're not on any sort of level with Prince. Prince has more talent in his pinky toe than you could ever dream of. You don't play any instruments. You make great music by pressing buttons and sampling other artists. Don't get it twisted Kanye. You good but you ain't THAT good.

    Kanye is one of the biggest pieces of shit of our time. Oh he spits truth, huh? I haven't seen one true statement by him yet.

    And Perez -
    "Oh, there he goes! That’s the Kanye we know and -love- know!" - I love this lol.

  42. Eliann says – reply to this


    42

    I thought you were on Kanye's side???? I mean, he IS one of the cockiest people in the business and that's a turnoff, but he's right about his lyrics. He hasn't gone "gangsta" and started talkin about killing people and selling drugs. I think he could use a slice of humble pie but at least he's making music on his own terms and about real life, so for that I'll give him some respect. plus, he's right about justin being able to crossover both black and white radio, and he's doing big things….kanye, tell it like it is!!!!!

    And don't even get me started on Justin TIMBERFAKE!!!! He's your inspiration? WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!! That is truly sad. Someone who imitates Michael Jackson AND Ralph Tresvant? Just goes to show you Kanye that the best musicians have come and gone AND Mr. Timberfake is NOT one of them. At any rate I will be buying your CD on Sept. 11 because I think you are dope and I want 50 to just GO AWAY!!!!

  50. no way, mofo! says – reply to this

    dude, he is whack! no effin way he & jt compare to prince & michael jackson. prince makes real music, kanye! he doesn't sample shit from others…your lyrics may be "real", but your music sure as hell isn't!!

    52

    HEY #25…….Michael Jackson and Prince are both amazeingly talented artists. Kanye is referring to artists that associate with the kind of music HE does. Do you really think Lennon and McCartney are anywhere close to the kind of Music that Michael Jackson, Prince and Kanye do? NO YOU FUCKING DUMBASS!!! Why dont YOU go and expand your list of artists you listen to……maybe some from the past decade or so. Van Gogh? You need to get out more!!

  53. TO #47..... says – reply to this


    53

    Hmmm, I dont really remember saying you should praise anyone?!
    Apparently you need to come up from your shitty cloud of bitterness…..
    Maybe if you get passed you negative angry mentality; you would see that what I meant is theres is something called "acknowledging something for what it is"……
    Hence, my saying, "He was complimenting another artist…very publicly; which for Kanye (I think) is pretty big/different."

    Soooo, calm the fuck down angry one!

    Michael Jackson and Prince? Is he insane? MJ and Prince have real talent JT is good but he is no MJ and Kayne is ok but for sure he is no Prince. Kayne's ego is bigger than him.

  57. LOL@HIM says – reply to this


    57

    LOL………PEOPLE WHO KNOW ABOUT THIS BUSINESS KNOW THAT ITS THE PRODUCERS WHO MAKE OR BREAK ANY ARTIST. HIM BEING GOOD MY ASS. WHOEVER MAKES HIS MUSIC IS THE GOOD ONE…..STUPID COCKROACH.

  58. Markus says – reply to this


    58

    Kanye is FUCKING delusional, with a hit of ACID on the side, if he thinks either him or Justin are in the same universe as Prince - EVER- LMAO. Perhaps it is an accurate description of the lack of quality of new talent - NONE. Really, the current music scene is absolutely weak. Rap just sucks and is dying, but there is nothing to take its place. Sad Sad Sad.

    FUCKING STEP OFF LOSER. Michael Jackson, before he got weird, broke new ground and had something to offer. All Kanye/Timberlake does is collect checks, really funny.

    But Prince, call Bellevue Mental Hospital and have them reserve a bed for Kanye, INSANE.

    UNREAL, TIMES A THOUSAND!

    Kanye is so racist….."black radio, white radio"…what a load of shit. He just can't shut is fucking mouth can he? ALWAYS Sticking his foot right in it. Public speaking or speaking period is not a good thing for him to do. Shut up and sing you racist fuck!

  61. Mr. Me says – reply to this


    61

    To KK(K)… Uh, Michael Jackson's #1 inspiration was The Beatles… so I'm guessing, yeah, Michael Jackson's music was of the same kind… Also, genius, you missed the whole fucking point: Unlike Lennon and McCartney, Michael Jackson and Prince didn't push each other… at all.

    Oh, one last thing: 'music' isn't normally capitalized.

  62. Ohhhhh Yeahhhhhh! says – reply to this


    62

    Of course, Justin is Hotttttttttttttttt! his music is the Hotest thing going. His concerts are so Hotttttttttttttttt! I'd gush all over Justin too. I can't wait to see the HBO special thats coming on Sept. 3. I'm so excited, I hope it's as hot as his concerts. OMG it was great. Anyway I like Kanye. The new singles off his new Album sounds great. I'm going to buy it.

    Kanye has proven his ignorance and his hubris knows no bounds, a most unattractive and quite repulsive quality. Too bad he's making millions while real black men who KNOW the truth live in quiet obscurity, loving their women and supporting their families.

    Actually, Prince and Michael Jackson never really competed, that's a total myth. They are both complete originals, and cannot be compared. JT makes me sick too, he has no credentials whatsoever. He piano-synches. I'm a pianist, i know. he sits at the piano and plays like one or two notes and expects us all to bow down to him. PLUS HE DISSED PRINCE. so f*** him!

    86

    What a fucking idiot, I can't believe any of you people actually like this piece of shit?! His music sucks, he sucks, anything and everyhting he does SUCKS! What kind of a little boy has a HISSY FIT when they don't win an award?

    He needs to suck it up & I wish he would disappear…FOREVER!!!

    Kanye saying he is the truest rapper out there is an insult to the game. All he talks about is chicks…that he has to PAY to keep around! LOSER

    Justin Timberlake, makes me ill just to think about his closeted gayness. Come out of the Mickey Mouse Club boy. When your on American Idol or MM Club you lose ALL credibility.

    Just watching Timber front the Paps, he is so lucky ANYONE notices him. Timberlake is like a fart in a bag, can't get a hold of his purpose.

    Justin Timberlake = CONTRIVED

    Oh My God! Kanye must be on the pipe because Justin is NO Prince nor is he Micheal Jackson in any way except that he got his fame as a boy. The only talent Justin has is his music producer and following choreographed dance steps like a good little monkey. Honestly, where will he be when his target audience of twelve year olds (and a deluded Kanye) grows up?

    96

    why did you have to put of a picture of the ARROGANT RAT FACED JUSTIN BIMBOLAKE??????? he's such a hack! does not write his own songs (or with the help of several TALENTED songwriters), looks like shit (and gonzo from sesame street), cries like a bitch after nipplegate, and thinks he's better than Prince! also he targets himself towards pre-teen and young teenage girls. real women know he's just a whiny punk bitch!

    Kanye, I used to like you until you started talking about that Justin Timberlake. I haven't liked jt since the super bowl ordeal w janet. And i lot of people feel the same way i do. Compare yourself to jayze or nas or someone else. Kanye u r an idiot!!!!!!!
    And Micheal Jackson and Prince you guys will never compare!!!!!!!

  99. Eric says – reply to this


    99

    He quoted Cobain, obviously on purpose. Does he see himself as the current modern day lyrical genius that Cobain was hyped to be? Prince and M. Jackson. Both weirdly popular performers with millions of lunatic fans. K west, and Timberlake, an audience of teen girls and part time posers. In ten years, the comparison will be even more idiotic. Timberlake, now there is a snake. How do you go from boyband nobody to hip hops favourite sample boy without any sort of creditability whatsoever? Congratulations to him.

    WTF??! please he sucks, and btw he fucking said Kurt Cobain quotes!!!! I'd rather be hated for what i am that loved for what i'm not BITTER!!!
