Kanye West. Being a little more real than his fans realize.

So i’ve been pretty impressed with Mr. Kanye West in a lot of ways. He’s an incredible artist who is pumping out some crazy orignal stuff. His newest album is a blast to listen to while being completely different than his previous albums.

Sure, he’s got some junk in his life that would qualify him as less than perfect, but so do i (luckily, i’m not a celebrity and most people don’t know my junk).

But i can’t get over the song in this video. In this song he seems to be vocalizing some real hurt and stress. He’s talks about wanting to be a “real boy.” He just wants to be a real person. He asks his listeners, “Do you really have the stamina. For everytime they see you they say ‘where’s my camera.'”

i can’t even imagine what a guy with that sort of fame goes through. I can’t imagine how hard it is for him to build authentic relationships. I can’t imagine what it would be like to have thousands of people screaming for you while you’re singing a song about how lonely you are.

be thankful you’re not famous.
