Be The Odd Man Out.
We didn't bat an eye when Kanye West released a song last year called “I Am a God,” mostly because we didn't think those were actually his real sentiments. Over the weekend, at a concert in Australia, though, Kanye threatened to stop the show if a wheelchair-bound audience member didn't stand up.
Where it gets really, um, Kanye, though, is when he disregarded the screams and pantomiming of the audience that the guy literally couldn't stand because of his condition, Mr. West still sent a bodyguard into the crowd just to double check.
Doing one's due diligence is well and good, but in some instances it really is best just to take other people's word. Like, when we say these are the best things going on this week, you can totally trust us. — Cory Graves
