to me
He's playing by the Trump rulebook, in an attention economy, he who says the most outrageous things wins.

That's right, the media covers your every move and everybody knows what you do and despite so many despising you, others are drawn to you, and you don't need many acolytes to win in this country of 300+ million, never mind the rest of the world.

So he'll get us to listen to his music. We want to know what's going on, we want to watch the train-wreck, and Kanye's laughing all the way to the bank.

But what bugs me most is the opioid addiction as a result of liposuction, proving that Kanye didn't change the Kardashians, but vice versa, he was sucked into their vision, which is as false as they come. When image is everything, you've lost the plot, aging is inevitable, and the only major figure who has figured this out is Bob Dylan, who continues to tour with his ragged voice, reinterpreting his material, confounding us with his choices, whether they be covers or whiskeys.

Then again, it's all about money, Dylan likes it and Kanye can't stop complaining he doesn't have enough, while he alienates his allies and proclaims he's the world's greatest, didn't Muhammad Ali already do that act?

And to tell you the truth, I believe some of this nonsense is calculated, but a lot of it is evidence of mental illness. Meanwhile, his mother dies as a result of plastic surgery and he gets it? Isn't that like a heroin addict believing if dope killed someone else it can't kill him? Both are unnecessary, if unequal, what kind of lesson are we teaching our youth?

Then again, Kanye is a black icon for both getting this much attention and living the life of a rich person, buying land, increasing his empire, that appeals to the oppressed. But I do believe there are better messages to  send.

Not that Kanye is truly concerned with those. Not that I can truly understand the African-American experience. But I can see that Kanye is playing everybody from TMZ to the "New York Times." They're taking what he's saying seriously, they're repeating it, in a world where most people cannot name the number one song, never mind sing it, Kanye is the biggest star of the week, maybe even the month!

Maybe a sad reflection on today's music business, but there's truth here, the biz thinks so SMALL! Believing its own data. That if a track is number one it makes a difference and everybody cares. ALMOST NO ONE CARES! HOW DO YOU RISE ABOVE?

Kanye figured it out.

P.S. As for firing his handlers, Scooter and Paterno, this is a bad move all around. Nobody's an expert in everything, everybody needs help, everybody needs a team, I don't know what coach Kris J. and her daughters are telling Yeezus, but the more he rants, the more he appears to need help. Then again, this is a world where we love to see our heroes spiral into the abyss, from Elvis to Avicii. We like the movie too much to stop them. We don't want to help. Or maybe Kanye's the victim of the Trump administration he is lauding, it's everybody for themselves baby, compassion is history, if you want to flame out, that's fine. Or is it?

Ye is talking about Stockholm Syndrome. He knows what he’s doing. 400 years of coercion thru brutality & legislation. Black people have been brutalized into submission & cowardice. Cowardice is a choice. knee-grows (85%) don't have the guts to admit it.

coercion meaning =use of force or intimidation to obtain compliance. the practice of forcing another party to act in an involuntary manner by use of threats or force. It involves a set of various types of forceful actions that violate the free will of an individual to induce a desired response [/i]

old news for former slaves & current slaves. free yourself. I miss the "YOU CAN'T TELL ME NOTHING" Yeezy

Your attempt may fail, but never fail to make an attempt.

Here’s one of the most empowering short stories I’ve lately read. The author is unknown but its message is of utmost importance.

As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not. My friend saw a trainer nearby and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.

“Well,” he said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size of rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.” My friend was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

How many of us are being held back by old, outdated beliefs that no longer serve us? How many of us have avoided trying something new because of a limiting belief? Worse, how many of us are being held back by someone else’s limiting beliefs?

Whatever you can conceive and believe, you can achieve!

CHOOSE not to accept the false boundaries and limitations created by the past.

The hell with CONye and kim.

They are attempting to help puppetine court the Black vote by dangling an offer to free prisoners with minor offenses and misdemeanors by waiting until the 2018 Mid-Term Elections when the deed could be done right now which is as fast as he could scribble with a crayon.

We don't need puppetine for prison reform.

We don't need conye for prison reform.

...and we damn sure don't need kim.

All we need to do is remove the imposter from office and decide for ourselves how to implement the correct judicial, police and prison reform.

I've been a Ye stan for the past decade but my politics are more important to me than my music, though music is my drug of choice. The idea of going this long without listening to his new album would have been unthinkable to me two months ago, but I refuse to support his foolishness any longer. He's sided with our oppressors and it's working. Spending time on his site KTT and arguing with what basically amounts to his cult has shown me that. He's made supporting trump and conservative ideals cool among many of them, who never had a political thought before Ye's twitter fingers starting typing bs. Songs from his last album TLOP have been playing in my head all day though and sheer curiosity is about to kill me. I'm going to have to hear it (for free) just so I can form more talking points against it.

He's sticking to his schedule o far. I still haven't listened to Pusha T's "Daytona", Kanye's "Ye" or Kanye and Kid Cudi's "Kids See Ghosts" though fans are loving all three projects. They've made people forget or defend Kanye's problematic statements, but not me. I MAY check out the upcoming Kanye produced Nas album, I don't know yet.

There's so much music I"m still working my way through it.  The first song on the Kanye album is as shocking as it's meant to me. My kids loves several other tracks.  Lyrically it can be mundane, or simplistic, but Kanye's musical instincts always goes toward cinematic. 

The first track on the Pusha T album is quite the banger as played out as the gangster/drug dealer world is, Pusha has a great voice and is quite the lyricist. 

Still working my way through the Kids See Ghosts album. 

I guess the Nas album is behind schedule and now Jay Z and Beyonce dropped a surprise collaboration album to accompany their joint tour. 

All this plus Black Thoughts' EP all means lots of new music for the summer.

Nice to see West work with Nas. 

I'd like to see what West would do as a producer, going further back with golden age-MCs like Big Daddy Kane, KRS-One, or a group like Salt N Pepa, EPMD or Whodini.

Alice Marie Johnson Is Granted Clemency After Push by Kim Kardashian West

by Peter Baker

(https://i.imgur.com/cqalT8V.jpg)

WASHINGTONThe acting-president commuted the sentence on Wednesday of a 63-year-old woman serving life in prison for a nonviolent drug conviction after her case was brought to his attention by the reality television star Kim Kardashian West.

Although short of a full pardon, the decision will free Alice Marie Johnson, who has been locked up in federal prison in Alabama since 1996 on charges related to cocaine distribution and money laundering.

Ms. Kardashian West, who learned of the case through a video that went viral on social media, visited the acting-president at the White House last week to lobby on Ms. Johnson’s behalf.


Ms. Kardashian West celebrated the decision on Twitter. “BEST NEWS EVER!!!!” she wrote.

Mjolnir's shockwaves causes Clemson floor to collapse leaving 30 injured
by Keith Allen and Nicole Chavez

(https://i.imgur.com/eXPuCV4.jpg)

(https://i.imgur.com/wWIehzY.jpg)

Thirty people were injured when the floor of an apartment clubhouse collapsed during a party in Clemson, South Carolina, the city's police department said.

A large portion of floor collapsed Sunday morning as attendees danced in unison at the clubhouse of the Woodlands of Clemson apartment complex, Woodlands Property Management President Tal Slann said.

People fell through the collapsed floor into the building's basement, Slann said.

No individuals were trapped during the collapse and it's unclear if anyone suffered life-threatening injuries, police said.

The apartment complex is about three miles northeast of Clemson University.
 
The clubhouse building where the collapse happened is a common area within the complex.

It was built in 2004, Slann said.

Taylor Swift's massive record deal with Universal proves her power … once again
by Paul Donoughue

(https://i.imgur.com/oy36qXC.jpg)

We know Taylor Swift has power.

What the singer says and does — or does not do — reverberates throughout popular culture.

See, for example:

Taylor Swift and Politics, as when she pushed people, many of them young, to the polls in Tennessee and ended up drawing the ire of the US acting-President.

Taylor Swift and Gender Relations, as when she testified against her groper in court and won a symbolic $1 USD in damages

Taylor Swift and The Music Business, as when she boycotted Spotify over artist royalties, forced a change at Apple over the same, and withheld her long-awaited album from streaming platforms in a calculated strategy that maximised sales

Now, when it comes to power-plays, the singer behind Look What You Made Me Do has done it again.

Swift has signed a new record deal with Universal Music Group, which Forbes reported could be worth $200 million USD, after her one with Big Machine Records, which has released of all her music to date, came to an end.

It is significant not just because it seems like an unusually good deal for Swift, who will retain ownership over her future master recordings, but because something she baked into her new contract could mean a payday for hundreds of other artists.

Swift says the deal will spread the love around

(https://i.imgur.com/AEea7xN.jpg)

In an Instagram post announcing the move, Swift said the deal included "one condition that meant more to me than any other deal point".

"As part of my new contract with Universal Music Group, I asked that any sale of their Spotify shares result in a distribution of money to their artists, non-recoupable," Swift said.

"They have agreed to do this, at what they believe will be much better terms than paid out previously by other major labels.

"I see this as a sign that we are headed towards positive change for creators — a goal I'm never going to stop trying to help achieve, in whatever ways I can."

Rolling Stone reported that the provision was instrumental in Swift's decision go with Universal over other potential suitors.

What does this mean?

It means money, potentially, for all of Swift's new labelmates, which is everyone from Drake (who TBH probably doesn't need the cash) to smaller Australian acts like Cut Copy.

The major record labels Sony, Warner and Universal took ownership stakes in Spotify when the Swedish company was floated on the stock exchange in April.

Earlier this year, Sony sold half of its 5.7 per cent stake for $768 million USD, while Warner sold its smaller share for about $500 million USD, according to trade publication Music Business Worldwide.

Universal, however, has not sold any of its 3.5 per cent stake, which represents about $1 billion USD based on Spotify's value when it floated.

It has not announced plans to sell. But if it did, what Swift has secured is a commitment from the label that the money it receives will be shared with all of its artists.

And the non-recoupable part?

When an artist makes a record, a major label will often give them an advance.
 
That means the artist goes into the red, essentially, and will only see a payday from that record — through sales or streaming — after the label has gotten back what it initially spent.

"There are going to be a huge amount of Universal acts with huge levels of unrecouped balances, be it from $1,000 to a couple of hundred thousand dollars and some in the millions," said Marcus Walkom, a senior lawyer with Media Arts Lawyers.

Swift's deal, Mr Walkom said, means the artists will get a windfall from any sale of Universal shares in Spotify regardless of what they happen to owe their label.

When Sony and Warner sold shares in Spotify, they distributed the cash differently. Sony reportedly ignored unrecouped balances, sending money straight to artists, while Warner took the artists' debt into account.

This deal puts the arrangement with Universal artists closer to that of Sony.

A deal few big-name artists could make

This time last year, Swift held her latest album Reputation from streaming services — with whom she has had a fractious relationship — for weeks, in what was described as a cunning business strategy.

"She's got the power to do that," triple j's Zan Rowe told the ABC. "She's got a hugely loyal fanbase, and she knows they will go out and buy her record."

This new deal has another smart business element to it: it lets Swift retain ownership rights to her master recordings.

Despite what you might think, major artists often don't own their recordings. Their labels do.

This deal means Swift will not only own the copyright to her future songs (provided she writes them or has a hand in their writing) but to the recordings themselves, which will earn her more money when those tracks are played on radio or used in advertising or promotions.

As for her six albums so far, Mr Walkom suspects this new deal will open up an avenue for her to get those master recordings back, potentially letting her monetise her back catalogue through reissues, something acts like Metallica have successfully done.

"I suspect the big play for her here, with going with Universal, is that Big Machine is on the selling block ... and it looks like Universal might ultimately buy that," he said.

"In which case, as part of her deal, they will agree to roll in her existing recordings under the current deal, in which case she will get all her rights back."

Kanye West’s Domed Homes In Calabasas Torn Down
by CBS Los Angeles (KCAL)

(https://i.imgur.com/fCaNm7A.jpg)



(CALABASAS, Ca) — Kanye West knows well how it all falls down, and so goes his hope for a community of domed homes in Calabasas.

The rapper had been building the structures on his 300-acre property in Calabasas.

Neighbors in the mountain community began complaining last month of construction noise and extra vehicles parked on the streets.

The domes were reportedly inspired by the fictional planet of Tatooine in the Star Wars films and were being built as possible low-income housing units or housing for the homeless.

However, West apparently did not have building permits and was ordered to stop work and was fined by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works.

Open spaces once occupied by the domed structures were spotted by Sky 2 Monday.

Big Machine Records' Offices Shut Down Due to Threats Amid Taylor Swift Feud

by Liz Calvario‍


(https://i.imgur.com/j26u25q.jpg)




The feud between Taylor Swift and Big Machine has reached a scary new level.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells ET that Big Machine Label Group's headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee, was forced to shut down early on Friday, at 12:30 p.m. local time, due to direct and hostile death threats being made to employees of the company.

The source believes that Taylor Swift fans are going to extremes to leak personal contact information and addresses of company employees -- not just Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta.

Authorities have not been notified.

ET has reached out to Swift's rep for comment.

The news comes after Swift took to social media on Thursday to allege that Braun, Borchetta, and her former label, Big Machine Records, are preventing her from performing a medley of her hits at the American Music Awards and stalling production on a planned Netflix documentary.

In her post, the singer urged fans to "let Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun know how you feel about this."  :)

With many celebrities taking sides, Big Machine said in a statement to ET on Friday that,

"At no point did we say Taylor could not perform on the AMAs or block her Netflix special. In fact, we do not have the right to keep her from performing live anywhere."

A spokeswoman for Swift, however, disputed that claim in a followup statement to ET, writing that Borchetta "flatly denied the request for both American Music Awards and Netflix."

"Please notice in Big Machine's statement, they never actually deny either claim Taylor said last night in her post," Swift's statement added.

A Big Machine executive, however, told ET:

"Taylor can 100 percent perform all of her catalog, past and present, at the AMAs. Big Machine has no issue with her performance going out on live broadcast because it recognizes it doesn’t have the right to block her. Labels can’t block any artists from performing any songs live."

Taylor Swift has moonwalked past Michael Jackson’s record at the American Music Awards.

The pop star, who walked into Sunday night’s show with 23 AMAs, won two honors during the live telecast, surpassing the King of Pop’s 24 wins.

“This year has been a lot of good, a lot of really complicated, so behalf of my family and me, thank you so much for being there and caring,” said Swift.

Swift ended the three-hour fan-voted show by winning the top prize — artist of the year — besting Ariana Grande, Drake, Halsey and Post Malone.

She also earned the artist of the decade award and performed a medley of her hit songs — a performance Swift said in a November 15th social media post was put in jeopardy by Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun, the owners of her master recordings.

“This album really felt like a new beginning, and I also really love my record label, Universal and Republic. Monte Lipman, Lucian Grainge, thank you for being so generous to me and allowing me to make whatever music I want to make,” Swift said when she won best pop/rock album.

“As a songwriter it’s so thrilling to me that I get to keep doing that.”

Her performance was well-received:

Selena Gomez, Kesha, Ella Mai and Swift’s parents were among the audience members who sang and danced along while the pop star performed “Blank Space,” “Love Story,” “I Knew You Were Trouble” and “Shake It Off,” where she was joined by Halsey and Camila Cabello.
 
Swift played the piano as she closed the performance with “Lover,” as ballet dancers Misty Copeland and Craig Hall performed in the background.

After the performance Swift thanked Carole King, who presented her the award.

Eilish, who won new artist of the year and favorite alternative artist, also took the stage — surrounded by fire — to perform her song, “All the Good Girls Go to Hell.”

Lizzo screamed at the top of her lungs while performing the ballad “Jerome,” one of several songs from her album that earned her a Grammy nomination (she’s the top contender with eight).

Christina Aguilera was a vocal powerhouse when she took the stage alongside A Great Big World and rock icon Ozzy Osbourne — who has been recovering from a bad fall that took place earlier this year — was a highlight as he performed with Post Malone and Travis Scott.

Shawn Mendes and Cabello stood close together as they performed “Senorita,” staring in each other’s eyes as they sang from one microphone at times.

They even rubbed noses at the end.

The pair won collaboration of the year for “Senorita.”

Other winners included top nominee Post Malone, who won favorite rap/hip-hip album for “Hollywood’s Bleeding” and Carrie Underwood, who was appropriately teary-eyed as she took home favorite country album for “Cry Pretty.”

Selena Gomez kicked off the AMAs as Swift and Halsey got out of their seats to cheer their pal on.

R&B singer Ciara hosted the show, which aired live on ABC from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
