Kanye West’s recent interview with W Magazine reveals an inflated ego that is full of ludicrous statements.
And a bit of disdain for his baby mama’s mother Kris Jenner.
Kanye tells W’s writer Christopher Bagley that the song “I Am God” was penned after a fashion designer told him that he could come to their show in Paris but only if he refused to go to any others.
West says, “So the next day I went to the studio with Daft Punk, and I wrote ‘I Am a God.’ Cause it’s like, Yo! Nobody can tell me where I can and can’t go. Man, I’m the No. 1 living and breathing rock star. I am Axl Rose; I am Jim Morrison; I am Jimi Hendrix.” West is not smiling as he says this, and his voice is getting louder with each sentence. “You can’t say that you love music and then say that Kanye West can’t come to your show! To even think they could tell me where I could and couldn’t go is just ludicrous. It’s blasphemous—to rock ’n’ roll, and to music.
Kanye’s Paris encounter with Kris Jenner was chroniled by Bagley, whor was at Kanye’s Paris apartment one night to continue their interview when Jenner showed up. Kanye played Jenner one of his new songs:
Bagley writes, “He plays her some of his unfinished songs, including ‘Awesome,’ which is clearly about Kim. When she exclaims, ‘Great job!’ West doesn’t find it as flattering as Jenner evidently intended. He raises his eyebrows. ‘Great job?’ he says and sets off on a comic riff that cracks up everyone in the room. Toasting with his champagne glass, he says, ‘Great job, Baccarat, for making a glass that can hold liquid!’ He looks down at his waist. ‘Great job, belt loops, for keeping my pants up!’ Jenner laughs off the mockery but soon is ready to leave. Hugging West goodbye, she tells him, ‘I love you. You know where to find us, at the George V. Call us tomorrow, if you want.’ It seems apparent to everyone, including Jenner, that West will not call.”
