It turns out the ambassador didn't even eat sea rat. He claims he "did not eat what was on my plate (but did not reject it) so as not to offend participants" and later switched to salmon, dashing our hopes of a slapstick meal where the ambassador quickly flipped a piece of lobster into the bushes every time Bolsonaro looked away.
Kanye West Accidentally Tweeted Himself Using Pirated Software
Kanye West is the Kanye West of Kanye Wests. He's carefully crafted the image of an egomaniac by being an egomaniac, but he also obviously leans into it because the media eats it up. That's why when he got caught illegally downloading software, it was actually an embarrassing moment for him.
In 2016, West tweeted a screenshot to show that he was listening to a Sufjan Stevens song, but eagle-eyed followers noted that another tab in his browser showed him using Pirate Bay to illegally download a $200 program called Serum. One of those followers was Deadmau5, who had quite a few things to say about his fellow Tidal ambassador's behavior. OK, really just one.
"What's the big deal? It's only $200. What is that, like, a couple of white T-shirts?"
It is pretty rich, considering that not only did Kanye release his latest album exclusively on Jay-Z's streaming service, but he had also tried to pursue legal action against The Pirate Bay for circulating it mere weeks earlier. When Billboard interviewed Kanye in the aftermath, his response was essentially "It's a prank, brah." He didn't deny that someone was ripping the software; just that it wasn't him. It wasn't even his computer. Also, he totally knew how it would look, so he tweeted it for the lolz. Kanye is a master troll, and he did use the incident to promote Tidal, so it's entirely possible that he's playing 4D chess. It's also possible that he's an idiot. You never can tell with that guy.
