Someone sent out a batch of press releases recently about rapper Kayne West and inviting him to do porn. Turns out someone didn’t check their facts because they quoted him as saying something he didn’t in fact say and today he officially responds in this eonline news story.
One awards show stage Kanye West won’t be storming anytime soon: the AVNs.
After catching wind of an outrageous—even for him—Internet report claiming the rapper is “open to doing porn” and, in particular, “bisexual scenes,” West has shot back on his blog, blasting the fake, hater-fueled interview and claiming that someone is trying to tamp down his greatness by hacking into his online accounts.
“Yoooo why won’t you let me be great!!!” writes West. [Editor’s note: We’ve translated to spare you his signature all-cap style.]
“I had the two greatest days of my life and when I get back…I read some s–t claiming I said I’m down to do porn and some bisexual porn!!!!!
“Please I beg you, give me a break!!!!! Pleeeeeeeeeeeeease!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let me be great!!!”
The rumor began on Tuesday when an anonymous poster launched a thread on AllHipHop.com’s online forums with an interview containing what he claimed were quotes from West.
AVN, Adult Video News, naturally picked up the juicy item, which led to its massive Web dissemination.
In the phony interview, West was quoted as saying he had a “softcore porn” based on his new album, 808s & Heartbreaks, in the works and then launched into his own possible participation in like projects.
“I know people will find that as another thing to hate me on, but f–k it. I’m open to doing porn,” he was reported to have said. “Hell, I’ll even do bisexual scenes. Myself, another man and a woman or just me and two women. I know people will find that as some weird s—t but I am who I am.”
The story has since been pulled from AllHipHop’s forums and AVN has apologized for running with the item.
Not that that seems to have satisfied West, who appears to be suffering one online injustice after another.
“I can’t believe the AVN would post,” he wrote. “First people believed the Twitter/Stephen Colbert thing, Rolling Stone even printed it!!!! Now somebody has been hacking into my MySpace and somebody’s actually hacked into my personal Gmail account and has been emailing people from it.”
The “Twitter/Stephen Colbert thing” refers to a fake Twitter account set up in West’s name in the wake of The Colbert Report’s successful carryout of Operation Humble Kanye last month.
“Who the f–k is Stephen Colbert?” was the tweet that caught the press’ attention, but West refuted his involvement in the account and the page has since been removed.
But it wasn’t the end of West’s hack attack.
“Hey world I no longer have a Gmail! I found out I had twelve unauthorized Skype accounts under my name!!! This all in the past four days. Welcome to Kanye West world!”
It’s a world that, admittedly, isn’t all bad. Earlier this week, the rapper performed at one of the many inauguration balls in honor of President Barack Obama and then launched his new shoe line for Louis Vuitton, which he called “a dream come true.”
