UPDATE: Shirley said on Facebook that she wasn’t talking about Kanye West, but was talking about some non-famous “industry insider.” So Shirley decided to blast some no namer on Facebook and not name names while doing so. Shirley IS your passive-aggressive cousin.
Kanye West doesn’t know what that smashed paper bag lunch, wood and Lucite trophy is for, but he still wishes he could take a time machine back to that moment and snatch that award out of Shirley Manson’s hands so that he can give it to a true artist like Beyonce.
Last month, the Internet stood and slow clapped for Shirley Manson after she tore a new one into Kanye West (Calm down and pull your chonies back up, Riccardo Tisci, I didn’t mean that literally) for spitting out some nonsensical shit about artistry and for saying that the Best Album of the Year Grammy should’ve went to Beyonce instead of Beck. Well, I guess Kanye clapped back at Shirley in an email he sent to her privately, because she has Crisco’d up her face, put on all her rings and dragged him again on Facebook. Shirley could’ve responded to the private email with a private email, but that wouldn’t be fun and she wouldn’t get any attention from it. So she wrote this mystery trick an open letter on Facebook.
Shirley called him “He who shall remain nameless” and basically told him to have a seat in the front of the classroom while she schools him. Shirley says that this nameless trick is in the “business of representing artists’ interests” yet doesn’t understand that not every artist is a fame whore who only cares about album sales. Shirley let the ho know that some artists just love making music and aren’t obsessed with spitting out commercial hit after commercial hit. You can read Shirley’s full rant here, but below is the part where she really went all the way off:
Clearly you are unable to wrap your head around the idea that some musicians actually prefer NOT having to perform on Children’s TV shows. Who do NOT want to be gossiped about in the popularity contest columns. Who most definitively do NOT want to be chased by paparazzi and who do NOT want to put their family name to some shitty , poorly made product in order to build a “brand” and who most definately do NOT want to go out every night, dressed up to the nines to the opening of an envelope.
SO allow me to make my choices as I see fit without having to endure your childish and un-evolved criticism.
As you so rightly pointed out, there are plenty of talented people in the world who will sell their grannies to serve your desires.
So now then sir, that all said,
Go F#CK yourself.
Shirley shouldn’t have told him to go and fuck himself. Kanye West makes sweet love to everything Kanye West does, so he doesn’t need more encouragement.
My only problem with Shirley’s open Facebook letter is that she doesn’t name names and didn’t throw up a copy of the email that lit up her b-hole once again. I can’t fully get high off of Shirley’s response without seeing Kanye’s email which probably looks something like this: “YOU JUST JEALOUS GARBAGE GIRL BECAUSE I HAVE MORE HITS THAN GOD. KANYE WEST X ADIDAS YEEZY F/W 2015!!!!&!!!”
And here’s Black Madonna with Paul McCartney at the Stella McCartney show in Paris today and also pictures of him kissing on bleached Kummy Kakes.
