What Were the Worst Things on the Internet in 2013?

What a wild ride 2013 was, huh? So many memes, so many funny tweets, so many things on the Internet that infuriated us and made us think very hard about each other and also ourselves — particularly, “Why don’t we just delete all of our social media accounts so that we don’t have to see all of this stupid shit day in and day out?” (The answer: because we need it.) If you’re the kind of person who has ever dreamed about writing angry blog posts, you’re also the kind of person who watched with a combination of fascination and shame while the Internet made some weird attempt to self-destruct over the past 12 months. Let’s revisit some of the most annoying moments of the year; I apologize in advance for refreshing your short-term memory. … Read More

Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel — The Media Gets It Wrong, Again

Kanye West appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, discussing the fallout from Kimmel’s already-infamous skit wherein a couple of children reenacted parts of West’s interview with the BBC’s Zane Lowe. West was his usual mix of awkwardness and volubility — the feud over the skit in question was put to bed fairly quickly, with Kimmel explaining his side of the story (including that he hadn’t actually watched the BBC interview) and suggesting his intention hadn’t been to infantilize West. The rest of the segment was devoted to West explaining exactly why the whole thing bothered him so much: “Protecting my ideas and my dreams, and that’s the reason I went so crazy.” … Read More

Kanye West Refuses to Play Jimmy Kimmel’s Game

A couple of weeks back, a Google search screenshot did the rounds on Tumblr. It was a study of how the media reports the public utterances of black and white stars — Lady Gaga and Macklemore “speak out,” while Kanye West “rants.” It came with the comment, “Coded language don’t really be coded,” an observation worth revisiting in the wake of the rapper’s widely reported response to a skit on Jimmy Kimmel’s show last night, a skit that ridiculed the BBC’s interview with West earlier this week. … Read More
