Quote Me Baby!: Kanye Steps Out Of Bounds...Again

Tuesday, December 2, 2008

“Nobody really wants to recognize that Beyoncé is a f*cking living legend and that she is
just as great, if not greater, than the artists that we had in the past…that
she’s probably greater than Tina
-Kanye West on why Beyonce is "probably" greater than Tina Turner

I think I just threw up...and it's not from me being sick...I'm guessing Kanye didn't see Tina Turner on tour this year...once Beyonce is nearing 70 and still kicking her legs up on stage with women half her age, then he can say all that mess but for now...Hell NO!


  1. No way is she better than the legend that is, Tina Turner. NO WAY!

    Tina will always be ina completely different league and anyway, you simply cannot compare the two. Tina Tunrer brings something different to the pot and will always be in another league and Beyonce hasn't been in the industry for half as long, so she cannot even be considered a legend. That word is trown about so willingly nowadays, without a thought into what it means to be a legend.

    Beyonce has had her success, which is great. But Tina Turner is on a whole different level.

  2. Agreed. I just think people should just stop comparing period...though we music heads do it anyway *wink* I think this stemmed from Kanye's American Music Awards trip where he went off and compared himself to Elvis, which was off...Kanye's going for the shock factor as usual, especially since his '808's' got dismal opening sales, once he says something wild another 1,000 units will be sold LOL

    I know I keep telling strangers, but see Tina Turner in concert if you get a chance...it's worth the cash. Even though I was in the nosebleed section, it was fantastic...I hated I didn't get a program to this tour, they had sold out!

  3. LMAO @ the nosebleed section. Haha!!

    Yeah, it draws in a few more album sales, which is what half of these headlines are for, publicity.

    Tina Turner is a legend, when Beyonce has been around as long as Tina has, then maybe just maybe a comparison can be given and even then she'd be short of being on the same level as the one and only, Tina Turner. When you get an artist of that league, it's hard for anyone to ever come close.

  4. Amen sista! Kanye finally crossed the line! Compared to Tina, Beyonce is trash!
