This past season of South Park they aired an episode entitled ‘Fish Sticks.’ In the episode–if you haven’t seen it–the characters Cartman and Jimmy work together to create a joke where they ask people if they like fish sticks; if they like to put them in their mouth; and if so, this person is a gay fish. Funny huh? During the episode the singer Kanye West is told the joke and he takes the gay fish comment seriously, and tries to track down Cartman and Jimmy in order to find out why everyone is calling him a gay fish. Priceless. After this episode aired, Kanye West wrote in his blog:
‘SOUTH PARK MURDERED ME LAST NIGHT AND IT’S PRETTY FUNNY. IT HURTS MY FEELINGS BUT WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM SOUTH PARK! I ACTUALLY HAVE BEEN WORKING ON MY EGO THOUGH. HAVING THE CRAZY EGO IS PLAYED OUT AT THIS POINT IN MY LIFE AND CAREER. I USE TO USE IT TO BUILD UP MY ESTEEM WHEN NOBODY BELIEVED IN ME. NOW THAT PEOPLE DO BELIEVE AND SUPPORT MY MUSIC AND PRODUCTS THE BEST RESPONSE IS THANK YOU INSTEAD OF “I TOLD YOU SO!!!” IT’S COOL TO TALK SHIT WHEN YOU’RE RAPPING BUT NOT IN REAL LIFE. WHEN YOU MEET LITTLE WAYNE IN PERSON HE’S THE NICEST GUY FOR EXAMPLE. I JUST WANNA BE A DOPER PERSON WHICH STARTS WITH ME NOT ALWAYS TELLING PEOPLE HOW DOPE I THINK I AM. I NEED TO JUST GET PAST MYSELF. DROP THE BRAVADO AND JUST MAKE DOPE PRODUCT. EVERYTHING IS NOT THAT SERIOUS. AS LONG AS PEOPLE THINK I ACT LIKE A BITCH THIS TYPE OF SHIT WILL HAPPEN TO ME. I GOT A LONG ROAD AHEAD OF ME TO MAKE PEOPLE BELIEVE I’M NOT ACTUALLY A HUGE DOUCHE BUT I’M UP FOR THE CHALLENGE. I’M SURE THE WRITERS AT SOUTH PARK ARE REALLY NICE PEOPLE IN REAL LIFE. THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO DRAW MY CREW. THAT WAS PRETTY FUNNY ALSO!! I’M SURE THERE’S GRAMMATICAL ERRORS IN THIS… THAT’S HOW YOU KNOW IT’S ME!
Now here is my question…was he just saying that so that he got support from his fans, or does he honestly want to work on his out of control ego?
Here’s the link to the video from the episode where Kanye West sings his song ‘Gay Fish,’ and comes out as a *ahem* gay fish:
I don’t know about you, but if there was a South Park episode about my over sized ego and lack of intelligence–damn, I’d only want more attention!You must be good if South Park is making fun of you!
So, should we believe that blog?
