Kanye: the, erm, new king of pop?

28 July 2009


Now, Mr West is many things (front-row hogger, sometime GAP intern, designer of sneakers and, of course, rapper), but now it seems he wants to add another line to his CV: new King of Pop. Just a month after Jacko popped his white bobby socks, Kanye has come up with this humble offering: ‘You know everyone loves and respects Michael, but times change. It's so sad to see Michael gone but it makes a path for a new King of Pop and I'm willing to take that on. There's nobody who can match me in sales and in respect, so it only makes sense for me to take over Michael's crown. First there was Elvis, then there was Michael, now in the 21st century its Kanye's time to rule. I have nothing but respect for Michael but someone needs to pick up where he left off and there's nobody better than me to do that. I am the new King of Pop.' Martin Bashir, you heard it hear first. Better get on the blower to KW before the bidding war with Letterman starts...
