Kanye West – A Common American

Kanye WestNormally I feel writing about “famous people” is too cheap and easy, almost too stupid. But sometimes it is entertaining to view what they consider problems. In this case, however, one problem is real and he joins what most Americans deal with: debt. Kanye West announces he is in
debt 53 million dollars.

The average American is about $5,000 in debt, and if they have student loans that could be another $30,000. With 80% of Americans in debt, it’s probably the most common worry. Normally we view celebrities as having more money than they know what to deal with, but they can fall into debt too.

Kanye has a history of proclaiming  his superiority to others and how much better he is. He is now requesting people to pray for him, needing donations, and even asking Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg for over a billion dollars to invest in his art.

All of this simply shows no matter how much money you have, if you don’t spend and save it wisely you can end up in debt. It’s especially dangerous if you disillusion yourself into thinking it can’t happen to you. Reality doesn’t care, it’ll happen, and you’ll look stupid.
