 Kanye West’s latest album, “Yeezus,”  has dominated both regular and social media attention since it was officially released about a week ago. According  to USA Today, is projected to sell 500,000 copies in its first week. Many  Twitter discussions have centered on a perceived misogyny in the lyrics (e.g.  “Lots of rappers have lyrics that are misogynistic, but when I hear Kanye I  literally FEEL a visceral hate for women other than [his late  mother].”-@marclamonthill), while predictable objections to the title have  rankled many Christians (Collision Records COO Mike Luna cautioned Christian  radio blog WADE-O Radio that “The Lord is just not going to be mocked. I’m not  saying that some plague is going to happen to him, but that’s not a smart  move.”). To these groups, we may now add the American Parkinson Disease  Association, which this week took exception to a line in the song “On Sight,” on  which West promises to “get this b—- shaking like Parkinson’s” (a tamer,  though still troubling echo of Lil Wayne’s notorious recent Emmett Till simile).  TMZ reported that Kathryn Whitford of the APDA described the lyrics as  “distasteful and the product of obvious ignorance.” Whom will “Yeezus” offend  next? Let’s wait and see.
