Dana Carvey: John, Paul & Kanye

On The Howard Stern Show, Dana Carvey did a bit from his new Netflix special, Straight White Male, 60, in which he envisions a conversation between Paul McCartney and John Lennon where Paul tries to explain Kanye West. His micro-impressions are amusing too.

Kanye West’s Favorite Noises

Kanye West’s Favorite Noises

Kanye West has built up a repertoire of hoots and hollers to get the people going. We miss the Uhh Kanye, the Laaa la la la Kanye, not banshee-tune Kanye, or angry HAH?! Kanye. The auntie team Kanye, not the god dream Kanye, but we’ll let Kanye be Kanye.

Kanye Self-Confidence Generator

Kanye Self-Confidence Generator

Try walking in Yeezus’ shoes with USA Today’s Kanye West Self-Confidence Generator, which has hilarious quotes from the narcissistic superstar. But remember: he’s not turned up 100% of the time, and you shouldn’t be either.

This funny infographic of things floating around in Kanye West’s head only goes to our theory that even after peeling back the layers, we still have no idea what he’s trying to say. (Thanks Gisel!)

All of the Lights Cello Cover

A cover of Kanye West’s All of the Lights by The Portland Cello Project. We would have had goosebumps if we heard this live. At the very least it’s a version without Fergie’s lame-ass rap.
