Kanye West has been so present in the media lately, between promotional appearances and his regular mid-concert “visionary streams of consciousness” (as he calls them), that any interview warranting a mention must be pretty damn special. His showing earlier today on New York’s Power 105 is one such interview. For over 40 minutes, the hosts (especially Wendy Williams’ former sidekick, Charlamagne the God), pummeled Ye with questions, frequently pointing out his contradictions. These included:
yeezy makes some aite points but.
I wonder what part of the interview people watched; Kanye West spent 40 minutes not acknowledging half of the BULLSHIT that came from the poisonous Charlemagne and continuously focused on his message, of anti everything. say whatever you like, but I can’t agree with anyone shutting him down, that’s not what I observed.
Marissa Alexander, woman from Florida sentenced to 20 years for shooting a warning shot towards her husband when he attempted violence against her, has been freed on bail as she was granted a retrial last month by the state, claiming the Judge’s decision to exclude the “Stand Your Ground” Law as basis for her shots was considered unconstitutional! :)
Make Your Move is an effort from Missoula’s Intervention in Action Project, a group of community organizations dedicated to ending sexual violence. Its campaign’s goals are to: 1) Engage men and women as allies to prevent sexual violence by increasing awareness and education about the dynamics of sexual violence and 2) Encourage bystanders to foster healthy non-violent relationships and interrupt attitudes, language and actions that support sexual violence.
don’t complain about the world if you plan on doing nothing to change it.
could there be a reason for this newfound invasion of privacy?
The State of Florida finally decides to respect the dead and listen to the people in uncovering the graves of possibly 20 children missing when the Mansfield Training School was still in session, a location considered haunted by the family in Season 1, episode 4 of the SyFy television show, Paranormal Witness.
