The Wisdom Of Kanye


“Anyone who says they are happy single is lying. I think you can only be happy in love. So I’m still looking. I wanna have kids, but I want the right girl. I like sex but I like fashion too. How many girls have a hot body and great fashion sense too?”
- Kanye West


You know how you know someone is a tool, but you keep giving them a pass because they're talented/amusing/interesting? That's been my attitude toward Kanye West. He has a habit of saying stupid, self-aggrandizing things, but on the other hand, he wrote "Jesus Walks!" Musically, at least, he seems to have his wits about him. And unlike Diddy, he did not subject the world to Danity Kane.

But Kanye's latest commentary on life and love is too ridiculous to ignore. I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that there are plenty of happy single people. God knows there are plenty of miserable people in relationships. And can someone explain what sex has to do with fashion? Is he saying that he won't sire children with a woman who is hot but shops at Sears? What about a woman with an amazing wardrobe but so-so abs? Would that be settling? See how it makes your head hurt just thinking about it?

Kanye West does not care about ugly people.

I like how all of his concerns are superficial. It’s not “I want a woman who’s hot and likes sex, but she also has to be smart or funny or kind or any other non-surface character trait” It’s “I want a woman who’s hot and likes sex, but she also has to dress nicely” He’s definitely wading around in the shallow end of the pool.

You are so right about that. I mean, take away his fame and ... well, he wouldn't be able to say stuff like that without being slapped silly.

What I love is how he seems to think he has to choose between sex and fashion. I guess you can't have your cake and wear it, too.

It's either or, Heather. Fashion and sex cancel each other out, so Kanye will remain unsatisfied no matter what he does. Can you imagine the pain of being rich, famous and unable to find your one true love?

I live it every day, my friend.
