Kanye is so famous, all he has to do is tweet you, and you’re an instant star. After a fan named Steven Holmes left a comment on his Twitter page, Kanye decided to follow him and the rest is history.
A young white kid from Coventry, England was inundated with tweets after Kanye decided to choose him as the one person he’d randomly follow.
“I just commented on something on Kanye West’s account and next thing I know he’s following me,” Holmes told his hometown paper, the Coventry Telegraph.
After he realized he’d been singled out, an elated Holmes thanked West on his account, Tweeting, “Holy s— bro thx for following!” West, who’s been making headlines for his vastly entertaining tweets, responded in kind, “You are the chosen one dun dun dun dun.”
But the honeymoon didn’t last long, as Holmes found it difficult dealing with the barrage of followers and journalists hounding his Twitter account.
“About 20 seconds later I had 20 messages from people I didn’t even know and my phone wouldn’t stop bleeping,” Holmes told the newspaper.
While West basked in his renewed limelight, his “chosen one” has decided that fame’s not for him. Following the influx of followers post-Kanye and pestering from the press, Holmes decided to take a break from Twitter until his fifteen minutes simply pass him by.
“This has been completely surreal and I really have no desire for this attention i’m just a normal person,” Holmes tweeted Monday. “I won’t be speaking to [any more press], surprisingly not everyone wants to be famous. That’s all I’m saying – peace out x.”
Kanye’s tweets are like Lil’ Wayne’s penis. Everything it touches becomes famous for no reason. All he has to do is call you ‘the chosen one’ and POW, instant fame! Dun Dun Dun Duuuun! GTFOH. Ye’ said it best: “No one man should have all that power.”
