Ladies and gentleman, we have breaking news: Kanye West has found his sense of humor.
In a shocking turn of events, Kanye West—known just as well for his rants as his music—reportedly “laughed so hard” at the send-up of his “Bound 2” video by actors and funny men Seth Rogen and James Franco. At least, according to Kanye West’s fiance, Kim Kardashian, and if you can’t trust her, who can you trust?
“Kanye says what’s up! He loves u guys! He laughed so hard at this,” tweeted West’s fiance and the mother of his daughter, North West.
Historically, Kanye hasn’t been too receptive to parody. Take the Kanye West/Jimmy Kimmel Twitter feud for example. That was squashed when Kanye appeared on the show, but sources close to West said he was none too happy about him and Kim being lampooned on a recent episode of Saturday Night Live. So it’s a little surprising that, among all the things that piss Kanye West off, a spoof of his video love letter to the future Mrs. West isn’t on the list.
Then again, will it be Kim West or Kanye Kardashian?
In a recent interview with The Breakfast Club on New York’s Power 105, West was jokingly introduced as Kanye Kardashian. When Charlamagne tha God (yes, really) asked him his reaction to such an intro, Kanye was in good spirits about it.
“Man, I’ma tell you something, at nighttime when I go to bed with my girl, I would change my last name,” Kanye said laughingly.
Two laughs in one week. It was close there, for a while, but it may be safe to say that Kanye West’s sense of humor is alive and well. Then again, after suing the co-founder of YouTube, taking on Nike, (allegedly) boycotting Louis Vuitton, and (unintentionally) destroying William Shakespeare, there’s no telling when or where Kanye West’s rage may pop up next. Just ask Bruno Mars.
Hopefully West’s wrath won’t make a guest appearance when he coach’s North’s soccer team, but if it does, hopefully someone puts it online.
