Kanye West knows how to ruin a good thing with a silly statement.
Kanye performed last week at the Glastonbury Music Festival. The Chicago native was electric, gliding across the stage while performing "Yeezus" and "Yeezy Taught Me.” He bought out Bon Iver's Justin Vernon for a melancholic extended version of "Lost in the World" and "Hold My Liquor." We even got Yeezy got a full performance of "FourFiveSeconds.” (with Kanye singing Rihanna’s part.)
All was well,until Kanye jumped off the bridge with a bold statement: “I am the greatest living rock star on the planet.”
The Rolling Stones are still alive. Paul McCartney is still alive. Bruce Springsteen is still kicking. I wonder what space Kanye was in when he thought he had any of those guys within their genre.
I doubt we will get a classic Kanye apology for this one, which means we are stuck sitting in this statement forever.
