Letting Kanye Be Kanye

Kanye West loves the caps-lock key. He also loves misspelled words, exclamation points and unnecessary grandstanding. He regularly uses his blog to boast about his accomplishments, but in January 2009 he outdid himself. "YOOOO WHY WON'T YOU LET ME BE GREAT!!!" West complained on Jan. 22 in a rambling, nonsensical blog post that seems to be about his hacked MySpace and Gmail accounts. "PLEASE I BEG YOU, GIVE ME A BREAK!!!!! PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LET ME BE GREAT!!!" He ended his tirade by posting a photo of himself performing at one of President Obama's Inaugural Balls and observing, "LOOK HOW FRESH MY SUIT IS."
