KANYE WEST SHAMELESSLY EXPLOITED MEMORY OF HIS MOTHER AT GRAMMYS
We actually started to forgive Kanye West for his arrogance and egocentricity after his mother died so tragically. His appearance on the Grammys changed all that good will. He used the memory of his mother to call MORE attention to himself and solicit pity. First he sang that melodramatic song dedicated to her, with all the James Brown theatrics, including angels floating in the sky. But that wasn’t enough. Later, when he was making a long dull acceptance speech and the music started softly playing to hurry him up, he became outraged. Holier than thou Kanye started up again with a dedication to his mother to make himself look not like a blowhard, but a devastated son. Cheap manipulation.
