    I can't believe Michael Jackson and Jay-Z would be put in the same creative bucket IMO, they're miles apart.

    Are you talking about Kanye? I find your opinion about his music very intriguing, because I never thought of Kanye as a very talented person, though, I hear he is. Perhaps I have not really given him a chance. If you wouldn't mind, would you share a few songs that you believe demonstrate his talent. I'm serious. I will check it out. If I had the name of the songs, I could focus on them and with an open mind, evaluate it.

    Yup. Check out his new stuff from the new CD (Yeezus). Any song (I am partial to I Am A God and New Slaves). It's pretty raw and would doubtless offend many people, but he is really a cut above anyone in hip-hop. I'm not at all a fan of the genre in general - I can count on one hand the number of artists I can muster up appreciation for - but West is in a class of his own. I mean that in a good way. I would listen to his work a thousand times over top 40 drones like Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Rhianna, Lady GaGa, Justin Timberlake, Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, etc.

    He makes it really challenging to separate the art from the artist because of his public persona - again, unfortunate.

    I can't stand Kanye as a person, but I love his music.

    I don't know if I knew he was married .He has always seemed a loner to me. I think he's a good looking man

    They seemed a fairly stable couple. This one surprised me.

    I think he's Gorgeous with a capital G and has been one of my celebrity crushes for years. I, too, am surprised to hear that he and his wife are divorcing as they have been married for quite some time (not that that means anything ).

    Also, he has a home, or maybe several, out on the East End of Long Island, so I do tend to read about him from time to time in the local newspaper.

    I love the twinkle in his eyes. Maybe he likes the peaceful life, nothing wrong with that .

    I like him, too. He's a good actor and a very attractive man. One of the earlier Danny Zuko's on Broadway.
