But Kanye isn't really a genious... Just full of himself because he's a star.
Wow, that does sound like Wilde...

I actually think that Kim Che has some mental problems. Have you seen the way he acted on Jimmy Kimmel? He was a ******* train wreck. He started spouting nonsense only to stop every five minutes to say that he's a genius. I seriously couldn't understand what he was thinking or how his sentences made any continuity and I honestly think that he has some mental issues going on that he doesn't talk about.

Besides Ghengis Khanye, most people who are powerful writers or thinkers or leaders see themselves as a sort of god or above other people. Look at Julius Caesar. Do you think he would have done all he did without considering himself a sort of god?

I think Kanye was morphed into douchehood by fame, as it often goes. He keeps calling himself a genius, but I think that is just because for a while, everyone was telling him so - specifically when he released his debut trilogy of albums (College Dropout, Late Registration, and Graduation), which were pretty goddamn awesome in my opinion. Everything he's done since though has been pretty bad to me

Actually, the technical sides to rap lyricism and production are pretty genius.

I still don't think he's allowed to be an ass.

He kind of is a genius. When my dad worked with him in the mid-late 90's his rapping was great and his hands moving across the sound board was phenomenal. I don't understand the hate on him

Yes, you can make that comparison but that would make you wrong. It's as simple as this, there's a difference between saying "I couldn't because I have only written 5" in response to the question "Could you list your favorite 100 books" and going "I am Pac" or screaming repeatedly "LEATHER JOGGING SHORTS". If you want another example of your being wrong, Oscar Wilde once said "You can never be overdressed or overeducated" and Kanye West once said "I ain't saying she a gold digger, but she ain't messing with no broke ****** ". There is a difference between showing off your genius and frantically running around yelling that you are one, on the top of your lungs. Simply put, one is a genius and the other is an Idiot who has been led to believe that he is a genius by idiots themselves. "The prophet of idiots, will always be an idiot" and also (Now this may be a really unpopular opinion but it is the correct one) Kanye West does not make good music he just makes noise, just stupid noise.

Thank you! His music is terrible!

Read a few Oscar Wilde poems and plays and you'll find dozens of great, inspiring quotes full of wisdom that are thrown about in his stories almost casually. I've listened to Kanye West a lot, I really enjoy his music (mostly the stuff from a few years ago, mind), but I really couldn't say the same about him.

I guess you could say he was a pretty Wilde guy

It was bad, and yes I feel bad

Wilde was an arrogant asshole but so witty that it worked for him until his fatal flaw. Many know he was imprisoned for sodomy and that he died in prison. Many do not know, however, that the only reason the case even reached court was because he sued the man who accused of him sodomy for defamation. Wilde knew full well that he was indeed having an affair with Douglass (it was his father who filed the suit) but wanted to make an example of the man for calling him out. Wilde didn't take the court seriously and made jokes, basically making a fool of Doug's dad. The jury loved it at the time, but after reviewing the evidence found not only that Doug's dad wasn't guilty of defamation but that Wilde was in fact guilty of sodomy. Wilde was the first to be charged with sodomy in a long time and it was really a rare occurrence. It wasn't homophobia that resulted in the arrest and death of Wilde, it was his own arrogance.

That being said, I love Wilde's work and the dude had a complete reason to be an asshole. The guy was glorious.

I think his downfall only adds to the beauty of who he was and what he did, to be honest. He wouldn't be as interesting if he was perfect.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oscar_Wilde#Death

Where does it says he died in prison? He was imprisoned yeah, but he didn't die there.

In fact he was released 2 years later.

So we are making up facts right know or I'm losing something?

He actually went to jail for a bit for being gay.  Just in case anyone is wondering-he was that happy

Doesn't it seem a little odd to ask someone to list their "100" favorite books?
100 is a lot of ******* books, especially to be putting in order

I should go back and read some of his stuff again. I never liked it in high school when I was forced to read them but somehow I think I might have missed a lot.

i don't even dislike the book (although too homoerotic for me), but this quote makes me want to urinate on a copy of the Portrait of Dorian Gray

I always end up wanting Dorian to violently destroy my anus because he sounds that gorgeous.
