With the release of his newest album, “The Life of Pablo,” Kanye West has gone on quite the social media tear recently. After reigniting a feud with Taylor Swift that everyone thought had long-since been forgotten, Yeezus took to Twitter right before appearing on “Saturday Night Live” to claim he’s $53 million in debt.
With the 58th Annual Grammy Awards set to air live on Monday (Feb. 15), Kanye is at it again. After the conservative backlash against Beyonce’s new music video for “Formation,” West posted to social media requesting that “Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, New York Times, and any other white publication” stop commenting on “black music.”
Diversity has been an issue regularly discussed recently, what with the #OscarsSoWhite controversy.
February is Black History Month which makes the timing of Kanye’s tweet questionable. With “Life of Pablo” not qualified for any nominations this year, this may simply be a ploy by West to keep the eye on him during music’s biggest night.
