Kanye's Tweet Gets Him In Trouble
Okay so you got to give it to the media King, Kanye West. He knows exactly what to say to get himself media attention as just last week alone, West was in the media twice. Once for West being exposed of purposely creating an album cover to cause controversy and another for having a watch created with his face in it.
Today, he's in the spotlight for a tweet aimed at Ms. Britney Spears.
West's tweet was not only aimed at Spears, but also poked fun at his "incident" with Taylor Swift. Last Tuesday, Spears released a new song called, "Hold It Against Me," which immediately reached No. 1 on iTunes. Unfortunately, West and Jay-Z's new song, "H.A.M" was released on the same day but was ranked No. 2.
West's tweet said:"Yo Britney, I'm really happy for you and I'mma let you be #1, but me and Jay-Z single is one of the best songs of all time! LOL," the rapper wrote on his Twitter page.
While many fans enjoyed West's comical tweet, some did not.

According to Yahoo Music, one fan tweeted this to West: "Did u ever really think u could touch Britney in sales?" Andrew "thekingofpop" Quintal wrote. "Go back 2 the dumpster u came from."
This backlash eventually led West to delete the tweet. He then explained himself in a Tweet by saying, "I thought LOL signified a joke," West replied on Friday. "I didn't get the 2011 LOL doesn't signify a joke anymore memo ... LOL or something else I guess."
Spears' team's response?
"Thanks for ‘letting' us be #1. Much appreciated ... " Spears' manager Adam Leber wrote on the "Toxic" singer's Twitter page.
