Kanye West has always reveled in being controversial. The rapper (and auto tune singer) has done and said several things that have shocked a lot of people. Actually, several people in the industry have done weird things that seemed out of control. A couple of years ago Taylor Swift won a prestigious honor at one of those award shows. Kanye came out onstage and promptly dissed her by saying that the award should have gone to Beyonce. That seemed like a start to a “music feud” that many thought was genuine and real. Now when we cut to the current times we find out more of the truth about their relationship. Kanye recently put out a song entitled “Famous” where in one of his lyrics he claimed that he “made that bitch famous.” He was referring to Taylor Swift. Apparently Swift came out publicly in disapproval of the song and the mention of her name in the song. She claimed that Kanye did not ask for approval. On the other hand, Kanye claimed that he “did in fact have approval from her.” Well, the one who got exposed in this story was Swift, because Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, posted a number of videos on Snapshot showing her husband actually having the conversation with Taylor. Here is the story:
Kanye has been maligned in much of the press (even though some, if not all, of his antics may have been staged too). It’s good to know that at least this one time his reputation came out on the positive end of things (while Taylor’s rep took a big hit). However, it still doesn’t change the fact that a “LOT” of what you may hear in the entertainment industry can be fabrications or “staged incidents.” Promotion is big in this business and gossip sells. There are people that are “hired” to put out gossip so that people can think that they have a link into a star’s private life. If Kanye and Swift can call each other and have a friendly talk to plant a story, then what about all the other stories that have been put out there? It’s all designed to make money. Whether you want to believe the concept about Beyonce’s displeasure with Jay-Z over his infidelities is up to you (however, at last check, I believe they are both still together). The moral of this story is that you should never believe “everything you hear” in the entertainment industry. When the main objective is for them to make money, drama helps them sell. When you support their lies, then they come out with more stories. When the next story comes out, I hope you ask yourself “Does this seem too wild to be true?” Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought, and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
