Kanye Loves The Brits!

Wow! This is QUITE the compliment!

Kanye West recently spoke out to The Sun about his admiration for British artists, and claims that he prefers them to most American musicians!

He continues:

"America has, and probably always will, dominate music across the globe but its always been the Britis who pull out that very special band. I love Coldplay, and I honestly think they are on the same level as The Beatles."

We're not sure we'd go as far as that, but we have to agree!

We LOVE our UK tune-age!

And we DEFINITELY think that Kanye and Coldplay need to seriously collaborate again! Maybe full-band and not just Chris Martin this time!

Thoughts??

    He can't shut his mouth can he ? Coldplay are not in the same league as The Beattles you asshole ! You just prove every day that you're an ignorant prick and you know NOTHING about music !!
    GO AWAY.

    coldplay is on a level with the beatles ???????????????
    now i know this guy really is an idiot.
    no matter if you like coldplay, comparing them & their one or two hits to the unparalleled career of the iconic band that is more indluential than any other in music history is just ignorant.
    plus…coldplay sucks

    Another incredibly stupid statement from someone who doesn't know sh*t about rock music. I guess since the Beatles won't let you sample all their music you equate them with Coldplay(who are okay but damn Beatles).

    God can we not just let Kanye fall off the map by stopping coverage of his moronic statements? I mean really, what else is there to him? How can someone who has been so successful in music know so little about music history and equate Coldplay with the Beatles?! Whatever. And as far as America forever and always dominating the music scene….well, all you can say to that is 'get an education asshole'. America is going to down the toilet in terms of the global economy and the only reason they put out more artists and dominated the last half of the 20th century is because they dumped dollar after dollar for it. And the other day he said he raps the truth…Christ, what an pinhead.

    Some of the biggest stars at the moment are British… Florence + the Machine, Taio Cruz, Jay Sean, Muse, Coldplay, Susan Boyle…
    Don't get me wrong America may produce some of the biggest stars on the planet but no one does diversity like the Brits. And that's what makes them brilliant!

    He is dumber than a rock - have you ever heard any of his interviews ? Severely limited vocabulary. Not to mention this is an artist and I so use that term loosely that can't sing , can barely write and yet thinks his talent is genius . He is a half talent at best that got lucky yet he is so arrogant that he thinks his opinions matter more than everyone else in the industry including other artists - Can't wait till this looser spends all his money and has to grovel for work - he's an idiot

    KANYE listen man. Make time, because you're rich, and sit down with your record player. You know, that thing that spins vinyl records? Listen to the Beatles "White Album" all the way through. Then, go listen to your "favorite" cold-play record. If you are really an artist, you can tell the difference. But anyone who has to constantly remind the public that one is an "artist" you probably are just another prick. Actually, I know you are a prick. Just buy stuff and get out of our lives.

    Coldplay = The Beatles ? HAHHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHHAHAHHAHA
    thank you for the laughs !
    oh dear…..

    Kayne is an idiot…everyone knows the Brits are overwhelming white and Kayne..well, he hate white people.

    Shut up Kanye. You are stupid and arrogant and no one cares WTF you think about anything!



  12. 12

    Coldplay are a million times better than the Beatles



  13. 13

    coldplay is such a gay band and i still don't get what's so great about the beatles?!



  14. 14

    the Beatles to me is like everyone obsession with Marilyn Monroe.. too much hype.. I love their music, I really do, but hate when they perform their music. A lot of covers made by others to me are wayy better when the Beatles does it.



  15. 15

    Wow…how can a guy who's so musically talented be so musically ignorant? Coldplay are a less exciting, more watered down version of U2, nothing more nothing less. Even just lyrically you're talking about the difference between Hemingway and the chick who writes the Twilight books.

    Re: Chinwe Okorie Ŧ – Name me another band or artist who released 6 masterpieces in the span of 4 years (7 in the span of 5 if you include Let it Be, which some think was weak…but only when compared to the previous 6…Coldplay has yet to release an album as good as Let it Be).

    I'm shocked he's speaking so kindly about a white guy. Really… oh wait… it's not in America, forgot. Every white person in America owes HIM something because everyone is racist against blacks. Forgot…

    Sorry but I find him to be full of it. He's dug himself into a hole in my book, I used to really like him but how he's acted about uncalled for racial assumptions, fuck him! He is so disrespectful all around and now he's trying to kiss ass and make up for it because his managers are probably just now mentioning how bad he's made himself look. I don't believe that crap for a minute. He's just trying to fit normally into Hollywood again. All this is, 'I'm innocent and a sweet person'. Right. I could totally see him calling someone racist because they didn't give a homeless person who happens to be black, money. Totally see that happening lol!

    Re: Chinwe Okorie Ŧ – I agree, I've never really cared to listen to the beatles to be honest.

    Re: Heggoo – Yeah Europe has a very vibrant sense of music compared to America. American music to me seems too cookie-cut.



  20. 20

    I've always liked Kanye, but he says the craziest shit. Coldplay as big as The Beatles??? He can't be serious!



  21. 21

    i definitely agree that the uk has better bands/music..i'm ashamed to even be living here while Justin Beiber and miley cyrus and other overrated "artists" are suppose to be considered amazing. but coldplay is ok..not like the beatles though. and kanye is a douche so anything he says shouldn't be taken seriously

    This neegger is a racist.
