Um, what did you expect Chuck Norris to do when you tried to write a profit-making book off an Internet meme? After all, the dude does not sleep. He waits for the most opportune moment to kick (or sue) your ass.
“You will come to in front of your disappointed parents with a face full of Sharpie and the sneaking suspicion that you’ve been teabagged by one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people of 2007.”—John Mayer warns underage drinkers what will happen if they misbehave at future concerts
SPIN: You think Graduation is blacker than The College Dropout?
KANYE: Way blacker. “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” — how hood is that record? “Good Life” is straight Steve Harvey, all day long. “Flashing Lights”? I never had a record that was that black. But it’s white at the same time. Certain things are so good it doesn’t have to be white or black. That’s what Graduation is. Take “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.” It’s a white sample, but everything I do to it is to make it as black as possible. So I’ma make the bass as black as possible; I’ma make the lyrics as intense as possible.
SPIN: Are these choices strictly artistic, or are you thinking as a marketer, too? Can you separate those roles?
KANYE: I can’t. I’m a pop enigma. I live and breathe every element in life. I rock a bespoke suit and I go to Harold’s for fried chicken. It’s all these things at once, because, as a tastemaker, I find the best of everything. There’s certain things that black people are the best at and certain things that white people are the best at. Whatever we as black people are the best at, I’ma go get that. Like, on Christmas I don’t want any food that tastes white. And when I go to purchase a house, I don’t want my credit to look black. [Laughs]
SPIN: And what foods would fall into that category?
KANYE: White-people food? You know what it is. You never ate fried chicken and said, “This tastes white.” It’s America. People know the stereotypes. I play to the stereotypes. I believe in the stereotypes. And I submit to them. [Affects a black, Southern accent] “Man, black people sure can cook some chicken! And I’ma get some black chicken.”
The blonde beauty wants to be taken seriously as an actress and believes baring all is the best way to earn the respect of Tinseltown, even if it goes against her family’s wishes.
JESSICA! No one will respect you in Hollywood no matter what you do. And what kind of logic says that taking off your clothes will earn you more respect? Is that some twisted shit straight outta Papa Joe’s perverted brain?
Paris Hilton’s millionaire parents once snored cocaine off a floor - with ‘Village People’ cowboy Randy Jones, it has been alleged. ‘Y.M.C.A.’ star Jones has claimed that he once shared a table with Hilton hotel barons Rick and Kathy Hilton at New York’s Studio 54 club in 1997, where they indulged in recreational drug taking. Jones told the New York Daily News newspaper: “There was one rock of cocaine left, and it rolled off the table. They just didn’t even bother bringing it back up to a hard surface - they just crushed it into the carpet and snorted it off that.
