that and being in the lime light? Why does it almost always seem to warp good people and make them for lack of a better word "ugly"? I was looking at people like Kanye West and his incident this past week and can't help but wonder is it the money? Fame? inability to cope with issues in private? I never really enjoyed rap music but his early music was so great and different from the faux gangster rap that you still hear and then all of a sudden he kinda just changed. His ego has gotten far to big and he seems on a unavoidble downward spiral. He's just not likeable anymore. It seems celebrities like him, Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Chris Brown and others just turn for the worst. I don't follow their lives in magazines and such but what I do hear is sad. To a degree Michael Jackson's later life is an extension of that, at times I don't know whether to pity them or what. What do you guys think? BTW - Is it funny I never heard of Taylor Swift till this happened? Not to condone Kanye's behavior but she like came out of nowhere.
