"Is Kanye really that much crazier and fucked up than any of us? It’s easy and even safe to believe that he is, but have you never been at a table with friends venting about something that happened at work? Maybe you said something that was equal parts brilliant, arrogant, genius, and delusional, and the best you got out of it was a friend quoting you in a tweet. Kanye’s work is his music and his art and the culture he creates, except when he has a conversation about it, cameras are there, and literally millions of people are watching."
