The Kanye West vs. Drake beef that never seems to end (ever) reminds me of the fancy sport cricket, or even better, the long play version of cricket called a test match. It’s an extended game that usually lasts five days or even longer if you’re an extremely unlucky spectator. It’s the athletic equivalent of watching paint dry, and not for anyone less than the die hard cricket fan. This rivalry is becoming the cricket test match of celebrity feuds, ie. it is so boring I forgot we were still supposed to be paying attention. But apparently we are, because Kanye is pissed at some old Drake news that’s had him throwing a tanty all over Twitter this morning. Someone call this feud off already so we can all go out for pitchers and slices!
Kanye’s latest big boy meltdown has occurred over finding out that Drake “re-followed” his wife, Kim Kardashian on Instagram after a feud they had. In September. Yes, today, December 29, Kanye is flipping out over Drake re-following Kimmy K on Instagram back on September 3. Wow, to be a fly on the wall of the Kardashian-West mansion this morning. I’ve seen more creative childcare center toddler brawls with more merit than this beef.
In typical Kanye fashion, he fired off a series of hot fingered meany tweets about Drake this morning before taking then down later on. Luckily, The Shade Room took screen shots for our amusement.
Yes, sure, Kanye. Your household was really happy this morning with you ruining breakfast when you threw your half-grapefruit across the wall with this snoozy old news. Actually, scratch that. I’m sure you and the Mrs. were thrilled when you managed to create a little press out of thin air. Happiness for fame whore seekers indeed!
Kanye erased the tweets as manically as he threw them up, and left us with this Bobby McFerrin inspired uplifting version of the Hang in There cat poster of yore, probably after getting a swift talking to from someone in his camp who has a touch of rationalism:
Drake has not responded to this latest Kanye rant. But what would he say? “I’m sorrrrrry I became one of the 123 million Instagram followers of your wife. I’ll do better next time.“Or perhaps, “I’m sorrrry I’m just so good at pushing your buttons. I’ll aim for a knee cap and not your throat next time.” Drake has probably yet to wake up today and even know that his Google hits have spiked, so maybe he’ll thank Kanye with a simple “Re-unfollow” of Kimmy K’s page and they can all continue to live in their symbiotic fame whore triangle until the next sleeping beast rises.
