America's love/hate obsession with Kanye West continues. His new album, "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," is alternately aggressive and heartfelt
, with West sparing no punches as he attacks and celebrates his own faults.
But at what point, if ever, do his Twitter rants and media attacks, including one at the Los Angeles Times
, overtake the music? Yes, the media react with hysteria at every word West says, but West also continues to indulge. Music this strong doesn't need a side show.
