Is Kanye West America's biggest rock star?



"I'm the No. 1 rock star on the planet," Kanye West once told Time magazine -- and you know what, he might just be in the discussion.

West, who plays the Tampa Bay Times Forum on Saturday, is beloved and berated for the same reasons, a man who has a filter-sized hole in his filter, inspiring jaw-dropping reactions in the incredulous rest of us. He is unfailingly honest, unvarnished, living a life without a harness — and really, who wouldn't want to strut like that, even for a day? Kanye lives without fear of reprisal.
