Is there anything Kanye can’t do, short of yanking in that galaxy-sized ego? It’s been only a week since news first broke of Kanye’s pilot with HBO, it doesn’t even have a title, and the man’s already blabbing. NME got a quote from the great one recently, what the earlier articles lacked:
“I wouldn’t do something as clichéd as a reality show,” said West. “At least give me the credit for being more creative than that… For the last couple of years, Larry, Rick and I have been developing this pilot. It’s a situational half-hour comedy. It’s fictional, and loosely based on my life.”
“Developing it for a couple of years.” Man, if i had a nickel for every time a celebrity said that . . .
