Kanye West’s ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ came out a decade ago

Nov 23 2020 Share

A decade from yesterday, November 22nd, Kanye West came out with what is arguably his magnum opus ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.’ 

The 2010 album illustrates Kanye’s dark and gritty life under the Hollywood spotlight at that time, coinciding with the iconic interruption of Taylor Swift’s acceptance at the MTV awards with the classic ‘I’mma let you finish.” 

The album came out with much fanfare after an elusive Hawaii recording trip and went on to achieve double platinum status.

Bellizzi is currently serving a three-year prison sentence for sexually abusing a teenage boy who would attend a vocational group with the scope of pursuing priesthood.

Beyond prison time, Fr Belizzi cannot be defrocked by the Archbishop since the diocese does not hold responsibility over Franciscan friars.
