Tyler, The Creator Says Finding U2’s New LP on His Phone Was ‘Like Waking Up With a Pimple’

"Get off my fucking phone. You couldn't come up with an actual marketing idea?"

U2 fans were likely stoked when Bono and co.’s new album/marketing deal Songs of Innocence showed up unannounced in their iTunes libraries on Tuesday night. A fair share of other folks, however, were mystified, puzzled, and even a little angered when the new LP showed up on their devices. Thankfully, the always vocal Tyler, the Creator is here to speak for that miffed contingent. Taking to Twitter Friday night, he began with little ambiguity about his feelings on the surprise release.

“GET OFF MY FUCKING PHONE,” he began in his trademark all-caps style. “YOU COULDNT COME UP WITH AN ACTUAL MARKETING IDEA? FUCK U2 I DONT WANT YOU. FUCK BONO. I DIDNT ASK FOR YOU IM MAD.”

Tyler then went on to say that finding the album on his phone was “legit like waking up with a pimple or a herpe [sic],” but he seemed to change his tune a bit thereafter. He said that it was “kinda sick” that the album showed up on everyone’s phones “out of nowhere,” but reiterated the overall message of his screed which was: “fuck Bono.” That said the whole rant came to a close when the Odd Future progenitor described Bono as “fucking awesome” and a “beast.” So, uh, you’ll just have to parse the whole string of tweets below for yourself.
