Steven Holmes, Kanye West’s chosen one?
It seems Kanye West has declared his chosen one- a single young man fortunate enough to be the one and only person that Kanye follows on twitter. Only, the teenager from Coventry, England- Steven Holmes– isn’t exactly stoked about it all… at least not anymore.
Holmes originally told his hometown newspaper that he’d “commented on something on Kanye West’s account and the next thing I know he’s following me” and that he’d thanked Kanye by tweeting “Holy sh** bro thx for following!”
And if you’re thinking it was some sort of mix-up, think again. Kanye tweeted back to Holmes, saying, “You are the chosen one dun dun dun dun.”
After the initial shock and elation set in, the honeymoon was over. Holmes says “about 20 seconds later I had 20 messages from people I didn’t even know and my phone wouldn’t stop bleeping.” Oh Kanye, first you go interrupting Taylor Swift, now you’re interrupting the life of an unsuspecting teenager.
For now Kanye’s chosen one has decided to take a break from the twitter-verse while things blow over. On Monday Holmes left us with these tweets to explain his break: “This has been completely surreal and I really have no desire for this attention i’m just a normal person. I won’t be speaking to [any more press] surprisingly not everyone wants to be famous. That’s all I’m saying- peace out x.”
I think I like this kid. Unless of course it’s some Spiedi-esque ploy to trick us all and he’s really an aspiring rapper/musician.
