    Who cares what he thinks, he has trouble selling out his own concerts

    Frankly, the day anybody like this starts to influence my choice of products I would begin to question my sanity.

    He can use what he likes, I will use what I like.

    And life goes on regardless...:D

    Kanye having a bad day? Perhaps Kim and those crazy Kardashians are getting on his nerves…..

    Seriously. I wish Apple would innovate and make some kind of "Kanye Filter" that could filter out anything with his name in it. So sick of seeing this guy and hearing his name.

    Why does the press give this low life ******* attention? Who cares what Kanye West thinks about Tim Cook. This guy is a total tool who does things in a lame attempt to feel relevant. His actions did exactly what he had hoped and the so-called media plays right into it. Guy should just go crawl under a rock. He's not an artist, a musician, or even a decent human being.

    The guy just needs to shut up. Not even the biggest artists and bands in the world have a problem with the iTunes Festival.

    If artist performing at the iTunes festival don't get paid then he has a valid point. Not sure if he is directing his anger at the right people though. This might be something that Cook has nothing to do with.

    Doesn't stop his music from sucking though.

    Not a fan of Kanye West and have no time for him but agree with this comment. One has to be able to separate the individual from the issue.

    Not sure what point that would be -- it's not like anyone is forced to perform at the iTunes festival. Whatever Apple's terms are, an artist can choose to accept or decline.

    His point is he doesn't get paid. He obviously chose to decline and then complain about.

    Hmm...I'd be curious to know if other artists have complained about not being paid. It's not like Apple is charging for tickets but asking the performers to play for free.

    Probably just Mr West. He likes to moan as most may know. Any others not up for it will probably just decline and leave it at that.

    Agreed. There are a lot of people that the media should just plain ignore.

    Some artists complain about not being paid enough to play at Glastonbury. :rolleyes:

    Little artists see it as a great deal for them, but bigger artists see it as being a little brand they're lending their hand to. The "little brand" in this case being Apple.

    It wouldn't be just a problem for Apple, but with all festivals in general these days.

    Kanye has become purely an attention who're these days. Guess he has to keep himself in the media somehow since his 'Yeezus' album was trash.
