Here we go again, Mr. West always seems to find himself back at square one.
Britney Spears new single, "Hold It Against Me" peaked at #16 on the Pop billboard charts with a record-breaking 4,061 plays. Kanye West and Jay-z are preparing a collaboration album together titled, "Watch The Throne," with "H.A.M" being the first official single. Of course, Kanye had to rain on Britney's parade.
Yesterday, Kanye West took to his twitter and tweeted the following to Britney Spears
Kanye later added "LOL" to the end of his tweet."H*A*M #2 on ITunes… THANK YOU!!!"
"@britneyspears: Yo britney, I'm really happy for you and I'mma let you be #1, but me and jay-z single is one of the best songs of all time.
Britney Spears manager, Adam Leber tweeted a response,
Later on, Leber added the LOLs to his tweet."@kanyewest Thanks for "letting" us be #1. Much appreciated…."
After deleting his tweet to Britney Spears, Kanye went on to say
"I thought LOL signified a joke… I didn't get the 2011 LOL doesn't signify a joke anymore memo… LOL or something else I guess
On a serious note I'm truly happy for @AvrilLavigne and @BritneySpears… No hate in 2011!"
I guess LOL's signifies hate when it comes down to Kanye's situation. Mr. West took to his twitter again to address the issue in depth this time,
"Just saw that MSNBC said I tried to start a twitter war with Brittany.This sh*t takes the air out my lungs sometimes from blogs to news reports… enough already!!! All I do is focus on my work.There’s a new lie everyday… a new media spin… I never got a watch with my face on it!!! A company tried to give that to me 9 yrs ago!
I’m one of the most considerate people in real life. Maybe over considerate. Over caring. Overly real. There is no astronaut training for celebrity… even though this whole life is so outer space! I was actually surprised that a record as raw as H*A*M could make it to #2 on Itunes. How can u “let” someone be number one??!! That was the whole joke!!! I know intelligent people know this so bear with me. When I said the comment about Brittney I was giving her props for being #1 not dissing her at all! But stop making it seem that my aim is to hurt or down people! That’s just not my style!
As pop stars we’re all in this shit together! We on the inside of the TV! If the media wants to make a story … just say I have atrocious spelling and terrible grammar…
If you don’t give em a story they just make one up. I’m just trying to focus & stay creative! Keep bringing dope shit to the world! Once again thank you to all my fans who made MBDTF certified platinum!
You all give me the power and I never take it for granted. I am an extension of my listeners. I won’t always say the right thing but my heart is always in the right place."
Well said, although I don't think he needed to explan himself. He already said what he meant behind it but of course the media will blow it out of proportion. Oh well ..*Kanye shrug*
