Them Fightin’ Words

Peep what Kanye West had to say at a recent press event in New Zealand:

“Nobody really wants to recognize that Beyonce is a f*cking living legend and that she is just as great, if not greater, than the artists that we had in the past…that she’s probably greater than Tina Turner.”

Kanye just doesn’t know when to quit runnin’ his mouth. We’d like to know what other legendary diva’s he thinks Beyonce’s greater than. Egomaniac.

    We need to just pardon him. He’s special. Rude as hell to the R& B elders but special nontheless.

  • jas

    HE’S NOT LYING!!!!!! SHE’S THE GREATEST…WELL ONE OF THE GREATEST EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Oshie - freak ho freak ho touch your knees to your elbows

    @ Chanel: You are right about that. He is like the retarded cousin that keeps grabbing the girls booties at the family get-togethers. Don’t mind cousin Kanye, dear, he’s “special”.

    This is basically another Beyonce post…ya’ll are not slick…

    But that is nice of him…to big up another artist (basically an old fellow label-mate’s wife, but whatever).

  • BeanTown

    Well, what do you expect? She is a part of the ROC.

    He has to be on her side.

    This dude just foams at the mouth does he? Makin’ ridiculous comments like this. I wonder…what makes a legend in his book? *smh* Its official, I no longer care to hear what this man has to say.

  • I'mjusayin'

    Beyonce is a living legend. We as black people have to give credit where it’s do and stop putting each other down.

    Kanye pretends to be a big egomaniac…I think he’s just an intelligent but very flawed human being.

    Only someone insecure could go on as many whiny rants as he does…like getting awards validates his self-worth.

    His 808 was not bad, and artistic…but it’s poignant moments were when he reflects on himself…hence the line, “…showed me pictures of his kids, but I could only show him pictures of my cribs.” Or something like that.

    Kayne, calm down *patting Kanye on the head*…just calm down.

    Puleeeeeeeze. Marketing has gotten better since Beyonce came on the scene but the woman cant sing better than Phyllis Hyman. Tina Turner’s Clear Water paved the WAY for Ms. oh oh oh and Diana Ross played the HELL out of Mahogany and Lady Sings the Blues before Beyonce was born. Yall best recognize the OGs. Bey would HOPE upon HOPE she has the longevity of a Patti,Tina or Aretha. Aint a damn thing Bey has put out become a ‘classic’.

  • PURPPLE

    well opinions are like azz holes so i guess hes entitled…

  • jazi

    Kanye will say anything to keep the focus on his corny ass. That statement is as real as beyonce’s hair..How dare he put that mediore singer in the same sentence as Tina?

    Tina……..a true ICON!

  • c'mon black people

    Say what ya want, but Beyonce is a damn good entertainer. She is the truth! I also respect that fact that she keeps her private life PRIVATE.

  • Val

    Kanye is a hot mess! Has he exhausted himself of ranting about his own ego that he’s now riding Bey’s? Here’s the real – has anyone ever heard the following women utter the words “I want to be a legend, an icon” in interview after interview: Patti Labelle, Diana Ross, Lene Horne, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin & so on. No. Why? BECAUSE LEGENDS & ICONS ARE NOT MADE NOR MANUFACTURED NOR DO THEY SAY DUMB ISH LIKE THAT. Bey can sing yes, can dance yes – can’t give her credit for acting, sorry. But she’s not a legend – SHE’S NOT EVEN 30 YRS OLD yet! Her stories nowhere near over so let’s just let it ride out & see how it goes. I mean, I remember when everyone said Whitney was sure to be a legend & we see how that went left. Just do the work Bey & stop asking to be made a legend… time will surely tell.

  • Sawyer

    Haha! Kanye is just a kiss ass! Look at him trying to get on Jay Z’s goodside.

    Beyonce cant sing…you know it, I know it, we all know it! She’ll be irrelavnt in a couple years. Tina Turner’s been doing it for a minute know. She got classics! Tell me a song Beyonce got that we will bang like “Whats love got to do with it” or “Shake a tail feather” in 10 yrs from now?! Kanye go lay somewhere with your voicebox and take a nap!

    @ jazi
    Younguns seem to think things didnt start jumpin’ off till they hit highschool. Tina and Patti have been making hits since the 60’s. DC didnt blow up till ’99 and Bey went solo a mere FIVE years ago. Living legend my *ss.

  • jas

    BEYONCE SAYS HERSELF THAT ICONS SUCH AS TINA, ARETHA, PATTI, AND DIANA ROSS HAVE PAVED THE WAY FOR HER.

    SO DONT HATE ON BEYONCE SHE HAS DEF. GIVEN PROPS WHERE THEY AR DUE! SHE JUST ASPIRES TO BE LIKE THEM WHEN SHE’S THEIR AGE AS WELL!

    HATERS FALL BACK…

  • lady

    nobody want’s to recognize, because it’s not true!! she a good entertainer,there’s nothing legend or iconic about her at all.. get over the hype.

  • HoneyBrown
