Kanye West Gets MAJOR Respect For Yeezus, From Rock Legend Lou Reed!

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!!!

    Lou Reed Probably doesn't even know who the hell Kanye is what a loser. Don't eff up your own legacy to get five minutes of attention. Dead beat.



  2. 2

    Drugs have fried his brain. You actually want us to believe he listened to that crap?

    Blah blah blah. Obama's assessment of Kanye was better: "he's a jackass".

    Yeezus is a great album. The fact that you don't like it does not make it bad. So you should respect other people's opinions… Especially rock legends

    From what I've read about Lou Reed he's a terrible jerk, not unlike Kanye himself.

    Also, is an 1800 word essay really necessary? Good lord.

    PS Is Kanye going to make everyone call him Yeezus now? Ugh.

    Taylor, in regards to Kanye, represents someone he — or his ego — have harmed, so the mention of killing her is hardly literal, it simply represents getting rid of some naysayers. As an English lit major, this is how I would interpret it.
