Kanye West War On Paps Continues

Posted By on May 20, 2009

    Kanye West recently talked about the mass paparazzi and what he says is the lack of photography skills when they shoot music artists like Jay-Z, Lil Wayne and Beyonce. Hitting up his blog, the grammy-award winning producer slash rapper slash singer said that paps lack "integrity."

    "Fresh a** picture!!!," Kanye wrote about a recent papa picture of Rihanna. "Yo, why can't all the paparzzi photos be this good? Well, obviously because most celebs just aren't Rihanna lol. But on the real, this pic is hardcore. Peep the perspective shot of the city in the back. Sometimes the paps overexpose the lens or have the flash too high taking all the emotion out of the moment. This moment is captured in time now. I look at our current superstars like legends in the making. Like Justin [Timberlake] is the new [Michael Jackson], Beyonce's the new Tina Turner, [Lady] Gaga's Madonna, Jay[-Z] is [Frank] Sinatra…[Lil] Wayne is [Jimmy] Hendrix, Thom Yorke is Roger Waters, these are the champions and should be documented as such. That said, it would be dope if the paps operated with the same integrity and attention of their craft as the legends they photograph….Good job on this one!"
