Kanye West and the 9 Other Biggest Egos in Music

Kanye West and the 9 Other Biggest Egos in Music

1.Kanye West claims he's the voice of his generation. He compares himself to Michael Jordan. He compares himself to Steve Jobs. He compares himself to Jesus. He complains loudly and publicly when he doesn't win awards. He's not afraid to use his real name. Whether or not he is his generation's defining voice, it's clear that he definitely has its biggest ego.

2. BonoAny dude who can meet with world leaders one weekend and then have two 19-year olds sit on his lap the next has a big ego. Bono's life is dedicated to bigness. He sings big anthems, not songs. He's out to save rock 'n' roll and the world. He's not just a rock star; he's a messiah, at least to himself. And, yes, I'm a little jealous.

3. John LennonHow huge was John Lennon's ego? He said his band was bigger than Jesus. What more proof do you need? By the way, this week the Vatican finally forgave Lennon for his 1966 diss. Those guys can hold a grudge.

4. Noel & Liam GallagherOasis's brothers spent most of the '90s claiming they were the best band in the world and boasting how they saved British rock from ruin. They also spent a lot of time writing songs "inspired" by a lot of other British rock band. It takes a big ego to remake Beatles songs and call them your own.
5. MadonnaMadonna's ego is so big, she believes that she can actually stop time. The Material Girl is on a never-ending quest to be forever twentysomething. Her bionic limbs are the first step toward immortality. Her insistence on pretending to be the teen pop star of the moment is the second step. The third? It probably will have something to do with her next boy toy.
6. Terence Trent D'ArbyYou might not remember this late-'80s nouveau R&B artist. He made a debut album in 1987 that many thought was brilliant, especially him. D'Arby liked it so much, he announced that he was going to be bigger than the Beatles. That's why you don't remember him. The Beatles saying they're bigger than Jesus? OK. Emerging R&B star saying he's bigger than the Beatles? Not OK.
7. Robbie WilliamsHe named his album "The Ego Has Landed." In reality, Williams's ego — and career — has landed everywhere but the U.S., where he remains largely a cult figure.
8. Gene SimmonsIs there anything Simmons won't slap a KISS logo on?
9. Axl RoseTwo words: "Chinese Democracy."
