Washington, May 22 (ANI): Kanye West has said modern day performers such as Justin Timberlake, Beyonce Knowles, Lady Gaga and Jay-Z are on their way to becoming future legends.
The renowned rapper compared the current artists to classic musical icons such as Jimi Hendrix, Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra and Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters, insisting they held similar characteristics.
“I LOOK AT OUR CURRENT SUPERSTARS LIKE LEGENDS IN THE MAKING… LIKE JUSTIN IS THE NEW MIKE , BEYONCE’S THE NEW TINA TURNER, GAGA’S MADONNA, JAY IS SINATRA… WAYNE IS HENDRIX, THOM YORKE IS ROGER WATERS, THESE ARE THE CHAMPIONS AND SHOULD BE DOCUMENTED AS SUCH,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying on his blog.
The 31-year-old singer further praised paparazzi for capturing a stunning picture of Rihanna in the backdrop of an idyllic landscape.
He wrote: “WHY CAN’T ALL PAPARAZZI PHOTOS BE THIS GOOD? WELL OBVIOUSLY BECAUSE MOST CELEBS JUST AREN’T RIHANNA LOL! … BUT ON THE REAL, THIS PIC IS HARDCORE. PEEP THE PERSPECTIVE SHOT OF THE CITY IN THE BACK. SOMETIMES THE PAPS OVEREXPOSE THE LENS OR HAVE THE FLASH TOO HIGH TAKING ALL THE EMOTION OUT OF THE MOMENT. THIS MOMENT IS CAPTURED IN TIME NOW. GOOD JOB ON THIS ONE!” (ANI)
