Influential rapper "Ye", formerly known as Kanye West, has been on something of a rampage lately. He is, as far as we're aware, unmedicated and completely out of control. Going on unhinged rants, getting himself banned from social media platforms, burning every bridge he has. And his tirade has only gotten more bizarre, as he's now proclaimed himself to be the rightful monarch of Germany.
In a series of now-deleted social media posts, Kanye attempted to trace his lineage back to a Germanic bloodline, and insist that his ancestors were once royalty among the Germanic people. This appears to be the latest in a series of ideas that Ye has been adamant about, and refuses to let go of. Despite criticism, he's doubled down on this claim, and is now declaring that he will unite all of Europe. This seems to extend into his plans for his presidency, as he seems to have implied he will bring together the "West" under one nation, both Europe and the Americas.
Even the likes of Alex Jones and other right-wing or extremist figures have been utterly perplexed by Ye's outbursts, and don't seem to have any idea what to do about the monster they've created and unleashed.
"Kim tried to hide my lineage from me. God showed me. True Emperor of Yermeny. Doctors tried to medicate me, they're trying to calcify my pineal gland. After all they did to MJ, yall still gonna believe them? They want me to be a slave. But Jesus won't allow that. For my kids, Jesus said Germany will rise again. The white supremacists don't want that, but Europe will come out of this stronger than before. God is on our side. Jesus will protect us. Love God. Love Jesus." Ye rambled on in a series of tweets that are now gone, as his account was suspended for making fun of Elon Musk's funny body. Elon said it wasn't because of that, but we all know that it was because of that. I don't even know how you get that bad. Elon is the richest guy in the world, and he can't just pay to make his body look good? What is he eating? He can't pay for healthy food, or at least some kind of medical procedure to fix that? I think that's the craziest thing, honestly. It's bizarre. Even crazier than Kanye, really.
Don't get me wrong, Ye is definitely crazy. I don't think I've ever seen an artist go this crazy before. I'm not sure what does it to them. Remember when Britney Spears went crazy? That was fucking wild. I mean, she didn't rant about politics or anything. But still, that was pretty crazy. I feel like a lot of artists go a little crazy, I wonder what that's all about. A lot of them also die pretty young. Must be stressful or something, I guess. The paparazzi, the record companies, the rich and powerful families and all that. It's a hidden world we see almost nothing of, except what they show us through media outlets. It's like some crazy, 1984 dystopia for them. Everyone always watching them, scrutinizing them, ready to ruin their lives at any second. The Ministry of Truth, I think it was called? Like, damn. Imagine what that must do to someone, being watched constantly, drugged, pushed in whatever direction powerful billionares want you to be pushed. I guess it's better they die young from drugs or gang violence or something instead of growing up to be Kanye, huh?
I'm so glad we have good artists out there to balance out the Kanyes. Like Drake. Drake never did nothing wrong. Drake is a good boy. He even gets that little heart shaved into his hairline. That's pretty cute, isn't it? I'm sure all the little girls love it.
