-A.S. Yahoo! Music Blog GetBack has named names. They just put out their list of Rock’s Biggest Egos. Though Kanye West was discussed in the introduction, he did not make their list. I think he would fill the first three spots on mine. Here is their list:
-Bono: C’mon, he’s the world’s largest turd. Writing the piece on Dylan for the top-100 Greatest Singers of All Time doesn’t help his case in my book.
-John Lennon: At least Kanye hasn’t called himself bigger than Jesus yet. Although to some, Elvis or Michael Jordan might be more blasphemous.
-Noel & Liam Gallagher
-Terence Trent D’Arby: Jesus was already taken, so he said he was bigger than the Beatles. I am more offended by his misstep than Lennon’s.
If you ask me, Kanye West has the biggest ego of them all. He has stormed the stage at award shows, pouted in front of cameras back stage and compared himself to every legend under the sun. He blames everyone but himself when something goes wrong and uses any platform he can to speak his mind whether that be complaining about the President on national television or blogging about Bonnaroo. Plus, you have to have an insanely large ego to think that you can get away with putting out as bad of an album as 808s & Heartbreak.
