Dear Alexandra,

I’ve always been the one who thought Kanye was a moron without a disconnect between brain & mouth. But you did make me think.

His self-confidence, while healthy enough for a psychopathic megalomaniac, turned towards art has indeed produced record after record, what I have began to admire about him is his tenacity, which goes hand & glove with his belief in himself. He would have achieved NOTHING without it.

So I absolutely see your point! And while one of my favorite local lines from The Simpsons is “I wish you loved me the way Kanye loves Kanye!” I do understand how important your absolute & unshakable self-belief has to be to achieve the kind of success he did.
