It would appear that Kiss frontman Paul Stanley has something of a bee in his bonnet when it comes to Kanye West, which must be quite unnerving for the rapper considering Stanley’s physical resemblance to West’s lady love, Kim Kardashian.
Stanley first took umbrage at Kardashian’s husband stroppy behaviour when West petulantly strutted onto the stage at the Grammys like a hormonal teenager when Beck was receiving his Album Of The Year award for Morning Phase.
West’s daft and entertainingly juvenile protest was all about hogging the limelight and stealing the show, but the rapper later tried to dignify his surly and brattish actions by explaining that giving Beck the prize over Beyonce’s self-titled record was disrespectful to “the craft” of music. Yeah right!
Grammy winner Beck took Kanye’s toddler tantrum in stride, perhaps allowing for West’s insecurity issues about being married to Kim Kardashian, a woman who is apparently obsessed with making sex tapes and exposing herself in public, and the rapper’s seemingly sycophantic regard for Beyonce.
However, as is often the case with celebrities, when one of their number is insulted, they too can’t resist throwing their hat in the ring. Take Kiss frontman Paul Stanley for example.
Frothing at the mouth in an incandescent rage, Stanley took to Facebook after Beck’s muted showdown with West and snarled, “Beck should have kicked Kanye right in the nuts last night and said ‘Get the f**k off my stage.'”
An attitude it has to be said which is not really helpful, but nevertheless quite amusing.
Deciding to escalate the situation in what would seem a measured attempt on the Kiss frontman’s behalf to enter a war of words with West, Stanley then goes on to post an inflammatory meme on his Facebook page, comparing West in a very unfavourable light with rock legend Jimi Hendrix.
Wether or not Stanley’s bear baiting antics will work their magic on West and engage him in a little bit of celebrity tit for tat remains to be seen. However, it has not gone unnoticed that Paul Stanley bears a striking resemblance to Kim Kardashian.
So think of poor West’s predicament, a long-haired man famed for wearing lots of make-up and high-heels and who looks a lot like his wife, has started to harass, possibly even stalk him on social media. Will Paul’s striking resemblance to Kim invoke in West uncomfortable feelings that’ll make the hip hopper lash out in anger? Or will he just rise above it and patiently plan his next stage invasion?
