Should We Be Talking About Kanye?

February 22, 2022

Since the breakup of Kimye, it seems like we've been keeping up with the Kardashians more than ever. We’re watching made-for-TV type drama unfold IRL, and you can’t go on social media without seeing the rapper going viral. 

But not all fans are here for the spectacle. Some say that the way Ye's talking about his ex and her new boyfriend are abusive and triggering, while others are questioning his current mental health status. And others say it's all a publicity stunt for his new "jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy" Netflix doc or the "Donda 2" album release. 

Whatever's going on, it's complicated. And if we're talking about it, are we part of the problem? We're asking an expert.
