♪♫ Kanye West balances on a thin line between joke and genius
Seemingly without even trying, Kanye West manages to hold the title of Most Talented of 2010 and Most Lambasted of 2010. Early into the new year, that doesn't look as if it'll change any time soon. Thanks to his stream-of-conscious presence on Twitter, at award shows and on national charity telethons, West has placed his Louis Vuitton sneakers in his diamond encrusted mouth so many times, he's a Christopher Guest mockumentary waiting to happen. And yet, despite his many, valiant attempts to be entered firmly into the public joke registrar, he manages to cling to a collective cultural respect. Why? Because his music is just so darn good. Even the music written based on his tweets is good. Even when Miss Piggy sings his music, it's good. Check it:
