The power of Adele is … immense.
I have added my very first Kanye West song to one of my playlists. Me, the woman who constantly tells people how much she hates Kanye. Me, the person who rolls her eyes the hardest whenever Kanye West appears on my Facebook feed. I have added one of his songs to my playlists and I listen to the song at least once a day; I’m obsessed.
This is all Adele’s fault.
A couple of weeks ago James Corden from The Late Late Show with James Corden posted his carpool karaoke segment with Adele. I mean the entire 14 minutes of the video were amazing, but the stand-out moment was when Adele rapped Nicki Minaj’s verse in one of Kany West’s songs.
So this Music Monday lets start our week off by listening to “Monster” by Kanye West ft. Rick Ross, Bon Iver, Jay-Z & Nicki Minaj. I really want to type some pretentious shit about all of the ways that this song is the fucking worst, but I can’t do that because the song is actually pretty great.
and I’ll say Bride of Chucky is child’s play
just killed another career it’s a mild day
besides ‘Ye they can’t stand besides me
I think me, you and Am* should menage Friday
pink wig, thick ass, give em whiplash
I think big get cash make em blink fast
now look at what you just saw, this is what you live for
Ah, I’m a motherfucking monster!
Okay, so I’ve always been aware of Kanye’s talent because there is not denying that this man has talent. I just find it extremely difficult to enjoy someone’s music when they seem to be pretty shitty people. Yes, I know that the fact that he’s an obnoxious, arrogant, full-of-himself human being doesn’t take away from the fact that he creates amazing music but unfortunately it all comes together for me. I am trying to separate the two, which is why I added this song to my playlist – why do I write about music so dramatically? haha. You would think I’m choosing whether to kill someone or not.
Anyway, the song is annoyingly great and a great motivator to start the wneek with a bang. As, for me, a lot of exciting things are coming to this little website soooo things are looking up!
