From Ice T calling out a cop to 140-character birth announcements, Twitter is more or less the method of choice for celebrities to quickly communicate with the public - and Kanye West is ready to have his say.
So, about that album that’s supposed to drop in September - West confirms that it's no longer called “Good Ass Job." “I'm bouncing a couple of titles around now,” West tweeted Wednesday.
And, yes, he did spell Silicon Valley as “Silicone Valley" in an early tweet, but hey, perhaps he was “still thinking about the other type of silicone,” he tweeted when he saw the typo. “ITS A PROCESS!! : )”
West also gave a nod to blogger Perez Hilton for posting about the 33-year-old rapper’s acapella performance on top of a table at Facebook's headquarters.
“I’ve been writing new stuff for the new album, and I just have a couple raps that I really like, so I thought it’d be cool just to say ‘em for y’all,” West told the audience gathered at the Palo Alto, California office as he pondered which one to start with.
On his blog, West posted a clip of his appearance, saying, “many times in life I’ve had to deal with moments of doubt. And as it’s been a minute since I’ve performed any fresh material in front of an audience, this could’ve been one of those moments… but it wasn’t.”
He added, “Your energy was a gift so electric, so genuine, that it really helped me give my best. The energy was so inspiring I had to keep going! I just hope you got as much from me as I got from you…which was everything!”
