Kanye's ongoing public meltdown

    I can't believe this hasn't been discussed yet.

    He's declared on Twitter that he's $53 million in debt, mostly because of his fashion line apparently. He's begged Mark Zuckerberg for money.

    He says he needs money to be able to continue to fund his art and his ideas.

    I would guess that if he dropped the fashion line, and concentrated on his music, and did an extensive tour, which managed its costs, he would be in the black pretty quickly.

    I'm also having a hard time viewing his fashion line as art that deserves patronage.

    Where's it go from here? (And, is he a victim of the Kardashian Kurse?)

    I honestly think (armchair psychiatrist alert!) he still hasn't recovered from his mother's death. Granted, most of us don't respond to personal tragedy by starting Entertainment 720, but I doubt Kanye has many people in his life telling him no.

    Is what real? His debt?

    "Sources" so who knows, but:
    So, maybe (and again, "sources" so who knows), he has a liquidity issue more than a debt issue.

    Yeah. All of it.

    I think so.

    Sounds like he really did plow a ton of money into his fashion line, and he puts on hugely expensive tours.

    He has high day-to-day expenses.

    And, he definitely appealed to Zuckerburg for money.

    Taylor Swift also won the Grammy for Album of the Year.

    Looks like Kanye is having a really bad week.

    I'm sure his wife could bail him out.
