Zie daar: Kanye’s april Paper-cover, met bijbehorend persoonlijk essay in het blad, waarin-ie zich naar verluidt nog bloter geeft dan Kim. Figuurlijk dan.
Kanye over het sterrendom: ‘I'm tired of people pinpointing musicians as the Illuminati, that's ridiculous. We don't run anything; we're celebrities. We're the face of brands. We have to compromise what we say in lyrics so we don't lose money on a contract.’
Over Madonna’s val van het podium tijdens de Brit Awards: ‘Madonna is in her 50s and gave everything she had to go up on an award show and get choked by her cape. She's judged for who she adopts. F--k all of this sensationalism. We gave you our lives. We gave you our hearts. We gave you our opinions!’
Over Nori, voor wie hij zo dankbaar is: ‘When I look in North's eyes, I'm happy about every mistake I've ever made. I'm happy that I fought to bring some type of reality to this world we choose to stay in right now, driven by brands and corporations.’
Meer van het achterste van Kanye's tong lees je dus in Paper magazine, nu in de schappen. Rest nog de vraag: welke cover wint? Laat je vooral even horen.
