Kanye West Threatens Us With a Good Time

As you can see in the shot above (and the gallery below), taken at a New York Virgin Megastore yesterday, Kanye West is busy at work promoting the release of Graduation. But, according to the New York Post, he isn’t promoting-promoting it. The Post cites three recent cancellations from Kanye — a Today show performance last week, and TRL and Letterman spots that were to go down yesterday — as an indication of Kanye’s ballooning arrogance.

The paper surmises that his thought process could be something like, “I don’t even have to promote my album for people to buy it.” While it’s fun to think that Kanye’s delusions may have reached self-destructive heights, it’s probably not the case. Fame whoring is as crucial to Kanye’s career as laying down beats — you can be sure that only the most extreme circumstances would keep him from in front of the camera (his publicist says that problems with the production of his act were the cause of the Today cancellation). He’s doing this for us, people. And by “us,” I mean “him.” [New York Post / All images: Getty]
