Time for Bon Iver fans to rag on Kanye for the collaboration…..on Bon Ivers Facebook fan page. The biggest insult seems to be how egotistical Kanye is. How egotistical is posting your disapproval of a strangers choices on their Facebook page under a post where the stranger says “So honored to be apart of Billboard’s No. 1 Album of 2010.”
I’ve highlighted the spelling mistakes. I can’t spell for shit but pointing them out makes the people seem stupid and it gives an indication of how hastily they probably typed this out in their frenzy of disapproval….”Oooh that Bon Iver….Guuuhhhh wait till I tell him what I think about this….”
“ I love Bon Iver and Justin Vernon very much, but I’m endlessly confused about why such a talented artist would decide to participate in an album with Kanye West. Justin Vernon, I hate to hear your music stepped all over like that.”
“One of the greatest artists collaborating with one of the worst. I know it’s good to help those less talented Justin, but you are going above and beyond the call of duty.”
“Bon Iver, absoloutely amazing. Thats why i struggle to see why you would contribute to the album of this egotystical, racist, talentless fool. I love listening to the Take Away stuff in Paris, really pure, and special, and then you decide to collaborate with Kanye West? I know it wouldn’t be for the money, or the fame, but that doesn’t really leave much else. I do not understand.”
“ It was unpleasant for me to hear my favourite track of 2009 turned into something so crude at the hands of the most arrogant character in popular music. I can however understand why as an artist you chose to do it.”
“you’re talented, but Im still dissapointed you worked with such a throughly untalented “artist”.”
“Dislike. Justin you sold out dude. You would have got the attention you deserved. No need to coloborate with the biggest jackass in all of music. poor poor form my friend. It’s called integrity as an artisit. Get some.”
“I don‘t want Justin Vernon’s music associated with artists that base their talent on throwing around how rich they are, or artists that litter their lyrics with “bitches” and “nigga”, I am a hipster? If THAT makes me a hipster, then so be it, I guess I am one. I find it sad when a society deems someone “pretentious” because they actually want legitimacy in music that claims to be talented. Let me go shoot myself for being a goddamn hipster.”
How did this work before the internet. Did Aerosmith get handwritten letters about working with Run DMC.
“Dear Mr. Tyler, I’m writing you to talk about something serious…..”
Ludwig is talking to Diddy’s fly chick.
Kanye was really good last night. I hadn’t heard the new album because I wanted to wait until it came out officially. So the concert was the first time I’d heard a lot of the songs (other than Good Friday releases).
It’s funny reading everything this morning because I felt like he was being very earnest with everything he did and it seems like everyone still wants to make him an asshole.
I don’t get it. He’s giving you dope music, people.
Bon Iver was involved with the new album and the amount of Kanye hate on Bon Iver’s facebook is amazing. Voicing this on the collaborating artists page adds to the insanity.
“I just lost a little respect for bon Iver. Kanye sucks, his music is not even music. He is not an artist he is a scum bag”
” I may offically stop listening to Bon Iver due to this. That sucks!”
“I’m sorry, I love all kinds of music and appreciate good music for what it is, even
If it’s not my cup of tea, however, I have no respect for Kanye West. This is disappointing.”
“Sorry to say Justin. But I only heard Lost in the world and Monster but I absolutely don’t like it. :(
“I’m scared of the day when I listen to Bon Ivers Woods in my car and the people think it is a Kanye song. Not awesome!”
For every 20 negative comments there are 1-2 positive.I’m not saying this is race related but it feels like hipster Klan rally talk. I guess everyone who likes “good” music needs to focus hate toward pop artists. Kanye’s the black target, Biebs is the white kid target, GAGA is the female target. I’m not above hating shit but I really do dislike when people rally together to group dislike something so passive. This all just sounds like people yelling at cereal in the breakfast aisle. “Trix is the worst, fuck that shit, it’s disproportionately flavored, too much lime. I will never eat Trix or any cereal that is on the same shelf”
