Before It Gets Old: 'Kanye West' on 'South Park'
Though some have decried recent seasons of South Park for being a bit too smug in its satire--"South Park has gotten so self-important it should be parodied by South Park," a friend of mine said just now--I still think it's mostly great, deftly tackling targets that (usually) deserve it. The latest subject was Kanye West, with jokes involving his infamously large ego, natch.
Here's a clip:
Kanye, to his credit, was totally cool about it on his blog. Surprising, maybe, but he's smart enough to know that if he had reacted poorly, the resulting press would not have been kind.
"SOUTH PARK MURDERED ME LAST NIGHT AND IT'S PRETTY FUNNY. IT HURTS MY FEELINGS BUT WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM SOUTH PARK!"
And, the best part:
"I JUST WANNA BE A DOPER PERSON WHICH STARTS WITH ME NOT ALWAYS TELLING PEOPLE HOW DOPE I THINK I AM."
Advice we could all learn from, really.
