In yet another outrageous interview, Kanye West has proved that his ego is humongous. On Tuesday, November 26th Kanye compared his five-month-old daughter to British Royalty. Kanye alluded to TRH’s Duke and Duchess Of Cambridge, and their 4-month-old son Prince George when he said: “my daughter is in a position of a level of royalty like the prince and princess in London.” Kanye’s fiance and North’s mother, Kim Kardashian, was pregnant at the same time as the Duchess and the pair’s pregnancy weight gain was contrasted multiple times. Both were due to give birth in July but Kim was induced in June after a bout of preeclampsia.
Kanye also spoke about his “Bound 2” video which featured a topless Kim straddling him on a motorcycle. The video went viral and gained media attention which later caused James Franco and Seth Rogan to make a spoof of the video. Of the video Kanye remarked:
“I wanted to take white trash T-shirts and make it into a video. I wanted it to look as phony as possible. I wanted the clouds to go one direction, the mountains to go one direction, the horses to go over there…’cause I want to show you that this is The Hunger Games. I want to show you that this is the type of imagery that’s been presented to all of us. And the only difference is a black dude in the middle of it. I’m like Marina Abramovic. This is, like, performance art. The thing is, I don’t got a problem with looking stupid.”
And later in the day in a separate interview with MTV’s Sway Calloway, Kanye lost his cool when Sway suggested that he “empower” himself to release his own ideas instead of waiting for the market to come around. Kanye fired back:
“I’m standing up, and I’m telling you, ‘I am Warhol. I am the No. 1 most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh. Walt Disney, Nike, Google — now, who’s gonna be the Medici family and stand up and let me create more? Or do you want to marginalize me ’til I’m out of my moment? How, Sway?! You ain’t got the answers, man! You ain’t got the answers! You ain’t got the answers, Sway! I’ve been doing this more than you! You trying to give me advice on somethin’ — you ain’t got the answers. You ain’t spend $13 million of your own money trying to empower yourself!”
Finally after a few minutes of yelling at one another, the pair cooled down and ended their conversation with Kanye telling he Sway he “loved” him. Do you think or North West as American Royalty? What are your thoughts? Post your comments below.
