Within two days last week, Kanye West blasted Entertainment Weekly for its coverage of his ongoing Glow In The Dark Tour, and then apologized for some of his comments.

The EW review [click to read] grades the tour a B+, and has sentences such as, “Okay, so [Kanye is] a nut. Still, West’s commitment to communicating inner passions and identity crisis is so consuming it nearly redeems any conceptual hokeyness.” The article gives equally seesawing opinions on the other artists: Lupe’s great catalog is diminished by his rapping over studio tracks, while Pharrell (who performs with his band N.E.R.D.) is a “great party starter” but a subpar singer. And despite Rihanna performing her set smoothly and being a welcome change-up from the otherwise male-dominated line-up, according to the EW review, her performance of “Umbrella” disappointed.

In a May 2 entry named “Entertainment Weekly’s not invited!” [click to read] Kanye dissed the magazine’s reviewer, staff, and the rating of Graduation, which is a B- on the mag’s web site.



“What’s a B+ mean? I’m an extremist. It’s either pass or fail! A+ or F-!” he wrote. “I just wanna know when was the last time you enjoyed yourself. If you can’t have fun and lose yourself at this tour it’s a good chance you’re a very miserable person. … You don’t know shit about passion and art.”

Yesterday, however, he apologized for some of his words. In an entry entitled “Houston I Love You!” [click to read], Kanye spoke about technical difficulties during the Houston date on the tour, and proceeded to revisit the EW ordeal.

“I did go in a little 2 much on that one,” he typed. “I’m sure there are some cool people who work over there and had nothing 2 do with that review.”
