Kanye Out Kanyes Himself In Another Brilliant/Insane Rant-Filled Interview

1
Kanye West's bat guano rants and over-the-top brags are now a part of the narrative of Yeezus, and the surrounding hype of birthing an album along with having a baby. Of course, it's an unusual moment, because as Kanye says ridiculous, nearly megalomaniacal statements like, "Man, I’m the No. 1 living and breathing rock star. I am Axl Rose; I am Jim Morrison; I am Jimi Hendrix," he then turns around and makes a remarkably brilliant record.
Kanye's newest interview in the August issue of W is chock-full of bonkers, off the wall Kanye-isms; something he himself addresses. “God’s little practical joke on me—as an intellect who doesn’t like to read a lot—is like, I’ll say some super philosophical s**t, but I’ll say it the wrong way. I’ll use the wrong word, so it goes from being really special to completely retarded.”
A couple examples of the thin line between being really special and completely bonkers? (Aside from the egregious mistake of using the "r" word, obviously.) Kanye's newest hit entitled "I Am A God," where he angrily demands his croissants, is a response to a pretty big fashion week "diss." Apparently, when Kanye was invited to a much-anticipated fashion week show, it was under the condition he not attend any other presentations (a request that houses often make to celebrities when they bankroll their appearances). Kanye, apparently, dealt with the issue by being "just very hurt" at the designer's attempts to control him. And not bring him croissants fast enough, as well, it appears.
Another cold relationship that's front and center in the piece is his relationship with the Kardashians. When Kris Jenner commended his album with "great job," Kanye part insults, part brags about the necessity of his work. “Great job, Baccarat, for making a glass that can hold liquid! Great job, belt loops, for keeping my pants up!” The article then says that soon after Jenner leaves, offering to connect with Kanye the next day, "It seems apparent to everyone, including Jenner, that West will not call."
Like any Kanye interview, the whole thing is worth a read — simply because the piece oscillates so quickly between total admiration and disbelief (West tells interior designer Oana Stanescu that he "love(s) banquettes and s**t.”) But a few notable points: Kanye has a sex tape, and he'll release it himself because "f**k you" is his message. He is also the creative director of a new Jetsons movie. Also, he refused to identify what he was wearing, because he will no longer drop labels...except for his own. (Someone should tell that to the fashion callout heavy Yeezus...) (W Magazine)
