Elvis to Kanye: It's Fine to Be Me

11/24/2008 2:46 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Elvis Presley would not have fired his gun at the TV set when Kanye West said last night he wanted to be next in line for King -- the TV bull's eye was reserved for another singer.
Kanye West: Click to watch
Linda Thompson, Elvis' girlfriend, told us E.P. would have been "flattered" someone wanted to be him 31 years after his death.

Thompson says Elvis "saved those bullets for Robert Goulet." Elvis once shot out a TV set as he watched Goulet sing while lying in bed.

Kanye wants to be the next King huh? Ok West, go get the crown from the present King, Michael Jackson---that be the only Kingdom thing you be King of.

No one will ever be the real King again. There's Only ever One. You sir dont have the looks, the talent, brains, guts or even drug useage to compete with the real King.

Go write your simple rhymes and add in your anger about the World and pass it off as creativity. You nothing but a mad little boy.

my 3 cents    

Kanye is now officially a douchbag I am sick of hearing about him TMZ. I don't care about Kanye. Thanks for trying to make another story about him, but let him go. I don't care.

Classy chick, that Linda Thompson, whore of Elvis, girlfriend of still-married Bruce Jenner (he then dumped her), married how many more times after that...mother of man-ho Brody Jenner.

West used to be one of my favorite artist. Now I cannot even stomach to listen to him speak or rap! Its fine to have confidence and passion about your work, but its so not cool to be on a 24/7 douchebag ego trip!!!!

He needs to get off his high horse!!

You want to be known as the guy that STOLE other people's music, profited from it, and never gave back? Sure, but don't forget to eat yourself to death after either.

Kanye would not make a good pimple on the King's ass. He is still the King 31 years after his death sorry blacks can't control everything...

Is he for real. That no talent piece of Crap couldn't carry Elvis' luggage. Elvis was actually a talented singer and musician this clown has no talent and no hope of ever having any talent. The only way that he will be remembered is if someone does a Tupac om his A$$
