Kanye was dissed by time by Taylor Swift this week. That must be worth something?

OK - that still didn't enlighten me. I may have heard the Kardashians mentioned a few times but know nothing about them either.

I think I'll just keep it that way.

For those who want to waste more time on this , Money.com has an article on what that debt really means: Kanye West's $53 Million In Debt Makes Him a Typical American

Essentially, in proportion to his income, his debt level is not unexpected and in line with the income and debt ratios of many Americans.

+1000. I see a headline about this idiot now and I quickly move on to the next story. What a pathetic individual.

That's a really good reason to turn off the news and talk shows/morning shows, and not read the newspaper!

Maybe someone should take up a collection and send Kanye through Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace class....

You could do it, but you should probably change your name to franye.

So Kanye's 53 million in debt and it can be a good thing!?!

I don't think that people with only one name are worth discussing unless they found a religion or equivalent.

BTW, I also know near nothing about any Kanye/Kayne/Kardasian people. They probably know as much about me as I know about them.

Is anyone else here as disappointed as I am that these people had to be mentioned on this website at all?

LOL why? lighten up guys. With all the other news I get bombarded with,

Isis
stocks going south
Donald fighting with the pope, Hillary and the rest of the merry gang
Daily murder count in Philadelphia

I have no problem using Kanye, Kim and Beyounce for a guilty pleasure of laughing at their stupidity.
