Kanye West is always on the news going ham on the paparazzi, seemingly always upset with them taking his picture, yet he allows his child’s photograph to become internet fodder for the hungry masses to digest at will. By the way his baby he and Kim Kardashian named North, apparently to play off of the last name West, is very photogenic and extremely cute. Some famous people such as, Kanye West and others are confused about the industry. They yearn for the lifestyles of the rich and famous, however a few of them clearly cannot handle the pressures of the glitz and glam.
Kanye West and the other celebrities that spurn the paparazzi should re-evaluate their situations and standards surrounding being thrust into the limelight. As a celebrity, there will inevitably come a time when the crowds of fans cease to exist and the paparazzi move on to the next big thing. The saying “what goes up, must come down” is so very true, so while intrusive and tiresome, the flashbulbs, screaming fans and paparazzi ambushes may be, embrace it and respect it while you got it.
Let’s not forget the fact that Kanye West habitually loses control of himself in all sorts of situations. He has had numerous award show meltdowns and is consistently controversial. One thing is for sure is his antics seem to be more newsworthy than his music is at this time. Opinions of Hip-hop is subjective so it is understandable if noses get wrinkled by the previous statement hung on his music, however it is this authors opinion, not a consensus of numerous others. So to Kanye West and other famous, relevant or newsworthy artists that find their fame bringing about the pesky and fortuitous paparazzi to steal their images in hopes of a lucrative payoff, I say, “don’t be smug and too comfortable there is an inevitable ending, and one day you may miss the fanfare.”
