When it comes to making headlines for all the wrong damn reasons, no one does it quite like Mr. Kanye West.

More than a musician, the self-proclaimed “rockstar” has become a magnet for irrepressible controversy–it’s as if he wakes up in the morning, gold chains gleaming in the morning sun, the ol’ ball and chain admiring herself in the mirror, and thinks aloud, “how can I make a bigger ass of myself today?”

He must plan, plot and prep exceptionally well.

Over the past few weeks, West (oops, we mean “Yeezus”) has submerged himself in radio and television appearances to promote his new self-entitled album, as well as his nationwide “Yeezus” tour. They say Jesus Christ himself hits the stage to perform with Kanye.

That’s lucky.

During a radio promo with Ryan Seacrest, West delivered yet another gem to the listening public, claiming that new fiancee, industry-jump-off-turned reality star Kim Kardashian, has greater national influence than…wait for it..the first lady of the free world, Michelle Obama.

Yep, drink it in.

In fact, he’s lobbying to get the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star her first Vogue cover.

“There’s no way Kim Kardashian shouldn’t be on the cover of Vogue. She’s like the most intriguing woman right now. She’s got Barbara Walters calling her like everyday,” he said, noting that reality stars have often been overlooked by mainstream fashion magazines. “And collectively, we’re the most influential with clothing. No one is looking at what [Barack Obama] is wearing. Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a [bikini] pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day.”

When his Prada-wearing boo landed the cover of CR Fashion Book, West saw it as a transcendent moment.

“[Former French Vogue editor] Carine Roitfeld supports my girl. That’s a breakthrough,” he explained. “There’s a wall of classicism that we are breaking through.”

Without cracking a smile, West said it’s not his intention to be controversial.

“That’s not my concern,” he shared. “My concern is doing God’s work and he’ll work everything else out.”

Doing God’s work, huh? If that’s not blasphemy, nothing is.

  1. Kanye has lost all his marbles, he is with someone who became famous for lying on her back. Michelle (First Lady) has super top class. That K is nothing but trash with money. She can’t compare to Michelle Obama!!

    He is such an embarrassment to man kind. I don’t understand why black people particularly black women continue to support this jerk!! He clearly hates black women!!

    Kanye – Don’t let this white woman take away everything including your brain!!! She may have some influence over young girls who don’t even know themselves yet. But Michelle Obama is a grown-ass woman with a plan for herself and her young daughters and could care less that K thinks K has more influence. You and Kim now have a daughter and you should be the kind of parents that she will want as role models and then you’re campaigning for the cover of Vogue? Please!!! what has she done to deserve such an honor – not a damn thing

    Money can not buy happiness, buy common sense, or buy Kim any class. I refuse to buy any item that has KK or KW’s brand on it. I saw that run down Dash store in Miami and walked right past it. They don’t need my hard earned money to continue to propagate the cray-cray.

  5. He spoke the truth here!!! These young girls these days would rather be an easy hustle such as Kim opposed to working hard, getting a good education like FLOTUS. He has to pump his baby’s mother up, he impregnated a tramp.

      Thank you, Debbie. Everyone is focusing on Kanye, when the focus should be on why so many young people focus on questionable role models.

  6. Kanye is an idiot. But lots of young people love him….what can I say. Any influence that Kim may have comes from people that don’t know any better

  7. Not sure if Kim is the person who started the loosey-goosey movement. I think that was even before her time. I’m not concerned with the comparison with Michelle Obama. The idea that he thinks that Kim is some sort of an icon is laughable. What a joke. I’m pretty sure Kanye is bipolar.

  8. Kanye really is not on the same planet as the rest of us, he has become so deluded of late that it is difficult to ridicule him, instead I just feel pity for him. I think he has gone mad. Does he not have any family or friends. He is so desperate to make Kim a lady but she will always be a ho.

    • I said it. on said:

      I don’t know if he is still reeling from his mom’s death, or if he was always touched and she was able to center him and hold him down. He says he is a genius and he might be right. Most geniuses are socially inept. He really thinks that he has a “STAR” and that everything he touches turns to gold. He did help Taylor Swifts’ career. The pity she garnished from Kanye embarrassing her, sent her record sales soaring. Of course she didn’t have that stank sex tape, or getting knocked up by one of the most conceited guys in the world hanging over her head. Yeezus, help them.

      One thing is for sure, a lot of young girls look up to Kim before Michelle because they don’t see where brains (an education) will take you farther than sex tapes (Kim K) and twerking (Miley Cyrus). Hopefully, as they grow, they’ll separate the real from the fake. There is much work to be done.

  9. Kanye is HOOKED and whipped on that stuff!! Kim MUST be slangin it on him good!! Thats why he is talkin this crazy talk!!! Good poo-na-nee can do that to some brothas!!!! Make em lose their minds and do/say crazy stuff!!! Kim should get the kitty cat of the year award for her accomplishments!! ROFL!!!

    While I do not agree with Kanye’s take. I do get his point. Yeah, I know we are all quick to jump all over his comments. However, when you see all of the stuff young girls look at, emulate, and try and do the very same things kim does, he does have a point. Yes, I said it. Dont get all huffy becuase it’s Michelle. Yes, those of us who are cerebral love and use Michelle as an example. True that! However, there is a whole bunch of young girls, in fact ( some not so young) that attempt to live Vicariously thru all of the women they see on reality TV. Slow your role on politcal correctness for a minute and you know its true.

    • Time: Yes Kim does have some influence over (some) young girls. Who? 13 year olds that at this point in life don’t know S from shi-no-la!!

    • Suzette on said:

      Kim Kardashian shouldn’t be mentioned in the same breath as the First Lady! This is the ultimate disrespect by Kanye. He is still fuming that he was called a JACKASS by the president and that’s why Kanye is always taking a swipe at the president. Kim K may have her obsessed fans but she is in no way more influential than the First Lady.

  11. What an idiot! I feel so bad for their child. I hope someone around her looks out for her so she’s not as screwed up as Kim and Kanye.

    • Boo: “hope someone around her looks out” Good luck on that one. Most people around them don’t appear to be very intelligent. I will give the Kardashians this….they do know how to make money….however demented (the way they make money) is
