Kanye West doesn’t carry a cell phone. Yep. Despite the fact that he’s one of the most popular rappers in the world and that there are probably tons of important people out there who’d like to get in touch with him, Yeezy doesn’t have an iPhone, a BlackBerry, or an Android-powered smart phone. We know that because French Montana told us all about it earlier this week. Instead of packing a cell, ‘Ye relies on good old electronic mail to keep in touch with others. It’s so 1997 of him. And yet, it’s really not all that surprising when you consider who we’re talking about here.
What we are surprised about is that more artists haven’t taken this approach to cell phones. Sure, cell phones are convenient and everyone (including your grandmother!) has one these days. But when we really sit back and think about it, there are a lot of celebrities out there who would have kept themselves out of a lot of trouble in the past if they didn’t have a cell phone at the time. From those who used their cell phones as weapons (SMH!) to those who had their phones hacked, there are plenty of celebs out there who’d probably be better off right now if they’d never signed up for a two-year cell phone contract at some point in their lives. To show you what we mean, we put together a list of the top offenders and pointed out what might have happened if they’d never gotten cell phones. It might be time get off the grid, guys. If ‘Ye can do it, so can you.—Chris Yuscavage
