Kanye West: discount travel agent

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Remember a time when musical artists weren't so quick to sell out?

Ah, the good old days.

What's up with this infinitely mediocre discount travel Web site by rapper and producer Kanye West? I know the site has gotten better over the past few weeks, but it's still not good.

I mean, he can't even bother to integrate his concert tickets into a travel package. The link to "Buy Kanye Concert Tickets With Your Travel" is a link to Ticketmaster. Gee, thanks.

What made Kanye think hawking cheap hotel rates was a good idea? The site is almost as funny as this recent exchange among two readers commenting on the site on the Washington Post's blog:

Just curious. Is this one of those travel companies that gets up trips for perverts to go molest children? Did you REALLY think that you could blog about him, and NOT have someone comment on his dispicable proclivities?

Kanye West, a molester? I think you're confusing him with R. Kelly, unless you're referring to West's collaboration last fall with Michael Jackson. Of course, if you have some insider gossip about West himself, please share!

All rappers nowadays are trying to find ways to create more revenue. Music sells are not what they use to be. Muscians have to find ways to intergrate themselves.
