“Kanye West” Arrested For Throwing An Amp Out An Office Depot Window In Chicago
Posted by Newson 05/31/2012 at 5:22 PM
Kanye West has his share of arrests on his record, but none for defenestration. (That sort of thing is more Chris Brown’s domain.) That’s still the case. It’s some other (some other other) Kanye who was arrested for something like that–namely, a Chicago resident named Linda Resa and now legally named Mrs. Kanye West, who threw an amplifier through the window of a Office Depot in Times Square and is doing 100 hours of community service afterward.
This is the sort of story that attracts a lot of media mockery and/or bullying. We’re not interested in that. However, three details from this Complex profile do strike us as a bit… odd:
1. Her reasoning for changing her name to Kanye West and not Beyonce (whose songs she performs as well as West’s) is simply this: “I don’t want to sleep with Beyonce.”
2. There’s no real way to talk about that statement without being really creepy, but… what?
3. Kanye West is totally OK with this. His only stipulation is that she act ladylike.
4. She has a website.
Read more at Complex, then be even more confused. It’s that sort of story.
