Some people are PAH-RAISING Yeezus! Others, well…not so much.
But Kanye West's latest album is getting two legendary thumbs up from rock icon Lou Reed!
No, seriously. This happened.
The 71-year-old sat down and wrote a 1,800-word essay on why he LOVES Yeezus! Lou said:
"There are moments of supreme beauty and greatness on this record. The guy really, really, really is talented. He's really trying to raise the bar. No one's near doing what he's doing, it's not even on the same planet."
Wow, Lou. We get it! You like it!
There are parts of Lou's review though that have us BEYOND confused. Like why he chose to bring up Taylor Swift:
"Some people ask why he's screaming on "I Am a God." It's not like a James Brown scream — it's a real scream of terror. It makes my hair stand on end. He knows they could turn on him in two seconds. By "they" I mean the public, the fickle audience. He could kill Taylor Swift and it would all be over."
Say whaaaaa …???
What does killing TayTay have to do with anything!
Regardless of how bizarre this review might be, we think it's pretty cool that a man who changed the face of rock and roll can appreciate a man who has no doubt left his mark on hip-hop.
Maybe it's time for you two to collaborate??? Yeezus 2!!! DO IT!!!
