It’s week three of ridiculous questions, and this one was so out there, my husband said I probably shouldn’t even post it.

But I’m going to anyhow!

This week’s question has to do with Kanye West. To my mind, few human beings are more annoying than Yeezus. I do recall a day when I really, truly liked Kanye West. Remember how fun this was:

Anyhow, now it’s 2015 and this guy and his wife have officially become the most insufferable people on the planet. They have zero self-awareness, and rate at a negative 10 in the sense of humor department. For two people who have so much money and get to do so many cool things, they sure seem to be sad and serious all the time. Except when Kanye made this really funny speech at the BET Honors (spoiler alert: it’s painfully awkward).

But I digress.

Here’s this week’s question:

“It’s the 2016 Grammys. Kanye is all set to perform something from his new album, So Help Me God. But when the music starts, he suddenly demands silence.

Over a hushed crowd, he states that he’s not really a rapper. He’s actually a comedian named James Smith who started this Kanye West alter ego in a Second City improv class around 2002. Though he does perform and record all the Kanye West music, it was always done as a joke. Taking the mic from Taylor Swift? Joke! His ridiculous fashion line? Joke, obviously! Marriage to Kim Kardashian? He can’t believe you guys fell for that one. He decided to finally come clean because things had gotten way out of hand. He literally could do anything crazy and get away with it, which didn’t seem funny anymore.

Upon hearing this admission, do you suddenly kind of love Kanye West?”

    This has been my theory of Kanye for years!!! I kind of love him because im convinced he’s doing this as the ultimate joke/performance art piece.

    I think he could be the Andy Kaufman of our generation!

    Hey Molly,

    I can accept and understand that you don’t have any piece of knowledge about the concept of art and the capacity to evaluate a real creative artist. But this does not justify you for posting meaningless allegorical texts on internet. You are a moron who should only make interpretations about cheap cometic products which noone really cares.

    Wish you the best. XXX

    Best Regards.

    Love this funny question…

    I hate to say that Kanye has a soft spot in my heart as he did something nice that it affected my job performance at the old career job. One of the tasks, I had to do is produce a hip hop concert once a year in the college I worked at. We had his protege serving as the headliner. Well Kanye was in town and decided to drop by and do a surprise performance to the students for free. He was surprisingly nice and pleasant to work with on such as short notice.

    I do love this theory. Heck I wouldn’t be surprised. I think this persona he has created is a way to sell records and have people talk about it.

    LAURA! I have so many questions for you!

    First of all, that is very cool. When did it happen? Was it pre-yeezus/Kimye? What did he perform?

    I truly hope it’s a little put-on because his life (while totally fabulous), seems really unnecessarily stressful.

    I love Kanye West. He’s my very favorite kind of human, those that are unapologetically authentically themselves with a shrewd awareness of culture and the status quo who practice unabashed vulnerability without care about how others interpret their intentions. Kanye West is a phenomenal artist and a fierce social commentator with humble regard to the talent around him. He plays his strengths and holds steadfast to his values – he’s the very best Kanye West he can be and he doesn’t play nice just to make life easier for himself. My world is enhanced by Kanye West and the trails he blasts. I doubt I’d care much for James Smith.
