Kanye West's Ego Hit By Jay Z And Taylor Swift
It’s no secret that Kanye West takes himself pretty seriously but his famous ego has just taken a bit of a beating. Kanye is said to be reeling after it has emerged that Taylor Swift could be collaborating with Jay Z, Beyonce and Justin Timberlake.
They are labelling it the “Mount Rushmore of music.” A project that will see arguably the industries most recognised solo artists work together, but there is no room for Kanye.
According to Hollywood Life, Kanye’s furious that Jay Z doesn’t consider him be on the “Mount Rushmore.”
“Kanye doesn’t see things over his ego very often — if ever — and he is upset that he isn’t in the club with Taylor, Jay Z, Beyonce and JT,”
They suggest that Jay Z has chosen to exclude Kanye as he’s not exactly Taylor Swift’s favourite guy in the world. It’s hardly surprising either after he crashed her acceptance speech at the VMA’s back in 2009. (Video at the bottom)
“Jay Z is a great business man and Taylor is what music is all about right now. Jay is not going to miss out on that. Kanye is currently being left on the back burner. His ego is catching up to him and ruining some opportunities.”
“Taylor Swift’s birthday was not just a fun celebration, it was also a business meeting for her, Jay Z, Beyonce and Justin Timberlake.”
Ouch. As it’s Christmas we will try and feel sorry for Kanye. The most shocking in all of this is that the Wealdstone Raider isn’t being considered for “The Mount Rushmore of music.” An oversight surely.
Here is Kanye’s infamous gatecrashing of Taylor Swift from five years ago.
