Kanye West: I Am God Now

Kanye West is an undeniably talented artist, but when I read his New York Times interview today I had to wonder about his sanity. Statements like the following, in which he refers to himself in the third person, are either deadpan ironic or a sign of gargantuan megalomania: “I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means. I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period. By a long jump.” Meanwhile, Justin Timberlake‘s upcoming concert dates with Jay-Z are out-selling Kanye’s upcoming concert dates with Jay-Z by about 10 to 1. But he’s an artiste, ya know?
