Kanye West always has his name in some controversy. His wife Kim Kardashian-West, seems to always be on damage control duty and/or having a baby . Kanye recent comment on his “Sunday Service” series has people questioning the Yeezy….again.
The Chi Town rapper made statements about how the public can tear down artists and try to take everything they have due to allegations. Now that could be interpreted as Yeezy discussing Michael Jackson, and his hometown musical peer R.Kelly, and all the drama surrounding “Surviving R.Kelly” controversy.
Michael Jackson’s past allegations of sexually abusing children have recently came back to light due to a new documentary making its debut at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival.
“Everybody, they want the art from the artist, but anytime they do anything erratic, they just gonna pull up full documentaries on ’em,” he said. “And then they gonna come with the Michael [Jackson] documentary … We can enjoy all their music all we want. I thought I wasn’t going to go there today but uh … If we gon’ tear down artists, let’s go ahead and take [Leonardo] da Vinci out the Louvre while we at it. Let’s take down all the art.”
As the backlash hit the fan Mrs. Kardashian-West stepped in captain save a ho mode , and tried to clarify her husband’s comments.
“I’m going to nip this in the bud right now,” she wrote via Twitter. “Kanye was speaking about his own experience of everyone quick to say they are cancelling him because of differences in opinion & not being perfect. The analogies were in context to his own experiences, not defending anyone else.”
“I want to make it very clear, he is not condoning anyone’s actions or unacceptable disgusting behavior,” she added. “My husband’s words are being taken out of context due to timing.”
Kanye did reference documentaries but ok.
