Kanye is Uncool, Says the Guardian

The Guardian's fashion editor Hadley Freeman has penned a piece about Kanye West. In it, she calls west a "big uncool puppy." We love this paragraph: "I first realised this when he started coming to fashion shows several years ago. He would come to pretty much every fashion show on the schedule—just another example of his overkeenness. The first time I saw him was at a Louis Vuitton autumn/winter show in Paris. I noticed him because he started body popping to the music mid-show. This was funny enough, but what really endeared me to him was that he was body popping TO HIS OWN SONG. Even Anna Wintour looked amused." [Guardian]
