Holy shit! It's an end-of-week quotes blog featuring both Jesus and Kanye, yet the two things are not related for once! What is the world coming to?! Don't worry. Egos are still running rampant this week regardless, with Justin Bieber trying to sound humble and doing the opposite, Azealia Banks thinking she's better than (basically) the (entire) world and Kanye (still) thinking he's the best celebrity. Or something. Thank goodness we've got grandmas and Don Henley to keep everyone in check... 

Here are the quotes of the week:

"I believe he is serious. And I know that he, you know, if he puts his mind to something, he'll do his best... I don't know if that was planned and I just didn't know about it, or if he came up with that idea right then and there... That was a fun night."
Kim Kardashian on Kanye West's (probably accidental) future run for President. (Ellen)

"And then as soon as I said that, it was like, 'Wait a second, we would really be into that, because actually if you think about it, he's extremely thoughtful. Every time he's ever gotten in trouble, he was really jumping in front of a bullet for someone else. He's probably the most honest celebrity that we have.'"
Who are these people that would be "really into" Kanye being President? Own up, fuckers! (Vanity Fair)

"He won't be president. He's either incredibly arrogant or incredibly insecure, or some combination of the two."
Thanks for clearing that up, Eagles legend Don Henley. (The Guardian)

“Who the hell's Mutombo?”
Listen to the Grandma, Drake. (YouTube)

“I just wanna honestly live like Jesus. Not be Jesus — I could never — I don’t want that to come across weird. You don’t need to go to church to be a Christian. If you go to Taco Bell, that doesn’t make you a taco."
Justin Bieber = Not Jesus. (Or a great thinker, apparently.) (Complex)

"LGBT community (GGGG) are like the gay white KKK’s. Get them some pink hoods and unicorns and let them rally down rodeo drive."
Azealia Banks = Just Toxic Waste At This Point. (Twitter)

The greatest version of "Bitch Better Have My Money" we've heard all week (The Tonight Show):

“I do apologize for Limp Bizkit. I really do. I feel really bad that we inspired such bullshit."
Thanks, Rage Against The Machine bassist Tim Commerford. We've waited long time for this apology. (NME)

"I’ve always detested mechanized dance music, its stupid simplicity, the clubs where it was played, the people who went to those clubs, the drugs they took, the shit they liked to talk about, the clothes they wore, the battles they fought amongst each other… basically all of it, 100 per cent hated every scrap."
Steve Albini don't want none of your dance shit. (NME)

"The '85 Bangles tour was a death trip."
And finally, Bill Murray's new mockumentary - Rock The Kasbah - is probably going to be very funny: (YouTube):

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
