Kanye West lands in More Hot Water

Right when it seemed as if Kanye West had put his career back on track, he got knocked off again. The Chicago rapper was doing great until the release of the "All of the Lights" single. First, Rihanna lies to a cancer charity to perform with West at the All-Star Game and then the video is critically-panned.

Critics have accused Kanye West of stealing the theme of the video from a French film. Fans have accepted the video and it has become a favorite. Despite what the critics have said, West's latest video was getting plenty of hits on YouTube. But, that will not be the case for too much longer.

Recently, the "All of the Lights" video was pulled from YouTube because it has caused seizures. Epilesy Action, a UK-based organization that promotes epiletic seizure awareness recently protested the video, saying the rapidly flashing lights could cause seizures. Because of this, the video was removed from YouTube and reuploaded with a disclaimer.

Things have been rough on Kanye West, but he is still going forward. Next month, he plans to release a collaboration album with Jay-Z, Watch the Throne, and then he plans to release his sixth studio album.
