Kanye West is appearing on the cover of the latest Rolling Stone, posing as Jesus. There’s probably going to be a bit of a “controversy” over this, but I just don’t see the big deal. Superstars like West know how to get attention, and the public as a whole completely falls for the sham every time some celebrity does something “scandalous” (often at a time in their career where they have to in order for someone to care about them again—though, that's not so much the case for West).
So, Kanye thinks he is a Christ figure. Who cares? He’ll go the way of the dodo just like every other star who thought they were hot-shit-enough to liken themselves to a king, queen, prince, god, deity, etc.
Besides, Kanye may be copying Christ, but his Rolling Stone cover won’t be at all as good as the Rolling Stone cover Jesus did.
