Kanye West Named International Man of the Year at GQ Awards

kanye-west.jpgFollowing in the footsteps of his “big brother,” Kanye West was named International Man of the Year by GQ magazine at their annual awards ceremony in London on Tuesday (September 4). According to the U.K.’s Press Association, actress Rosario Dawson presented ‘Ye with his award during the ceremony at London’s Royal Opera House. Other honorees included actor Michael Caine who received the Lifetime Achievement award, and singer James Blunt, who picked up Solo Artist of the Year. The 2007 blowout marks the tenth year that the world renowned style magazine has named the biggest and most influential stars of fashion and popular culture. In 2005, Kanye’s mentor and the president of his record label, Jay-Z, was also honored with the International Man of the Year accolade.

  • kritiq

    just proves that once you go homo white people will love you, now watch ganye’s album sell like hot cakes

  • Fire

    Why would you say Kanye is, in your words, “going homo”? Is it because he isn’t a stereotype and doesn’t rap about typical crap? I hate the way he dresses and how he used to complain about not winning awards, but come on, that shouldn’t matter when you weigh it against the awesome music he’s made. Image is overrated in music.

  • Grown Ass Kid

    West coast dudes perm thier hair and wear burets or whatever the fuck those things are in their hair and niggas let it slide.

    South dudes got Dre 3000 wearing dresses in videos and Ceelo wearing moo moos on mtv cribs.

    Kanye is the least of yall problems. Just admit non thugs scare you. The guys that got thrown out of the party in Housse Party 1 WERE THUGS.

    HIPHOP MIGHT BE GETTING BACK TO THAT. YOU SCURRD.

  • swerv (rich city)

    I don’t comment on is shit cus half the muthafuckas in the world that listen to music don’t even know what the fuck you listin’ to. It’s difrent forms of hip hop rap wuteva you wanna call it, it all came from the same place. When you go to a diffrent city its diffrent slang, same thing with the game. The point is you cant compare people for real cus everybody in they on lane, but the thing is, is to create your own lane. When you do that you can do what you want because you make yourself a product and its up to you to market yourself. He makein his self bigger and more powerful like he posed to. What yall call sellin out aint sellin out, it’s SELLIN OUT, and ats what he gone do like 50 gone do when his album come out. You gotta be able to reach er’one. If you think inside the box you ain’t neva gonna expand. It’s bout money and if you ain’t gettin it why be in da game? I aint sayin mafuckas aint got love for this shit cus it’s how they eatin and openin otha doors so they can sit at that table and eat, but tis shit is a bizzness. Why you think it’s so easy to get dropd by the majors if you aint movein units like you posed to? On sum real, I don’t even like ye like at. I respected his beats before he came out wit his album, and I really aint even listen to his first few joints but his new singles, you cant knock em. Its easy to hate, but real mafuckas gona keep it real, give the man his credit, ya dig

  • cuuuuurrrrrtisss
