Everyone should be like Kanye

Cultural Cadence

I am tired of hearing the same old stories about Kanye West. A recent TMZ headline reads “Kanye West Goes Nuts Again On Paparazzi.” Again? It’s common, it’s expected, it’s laughable.

Tunes on Tuesday: Jake Bugg, Taylor Swift, JLS

It seems every week we have another British sensation. Something about the climate or double-decker buses or who knows what produces incredible musical talent.
