Since joining Twitter last month, Kanye West has shared with fans and critics alike the most mundane musings about his life. Yet somehow West has managed to take the mundane and make it completely Kanye. How does he do it? Well, the mundane for Kanye is all about designer bags (Hermès to be exact), ladies who can jog in Lanvin heels, his love of ostentatious antique furniture and French military leader Napoléon. His thoughts range from insightful to, as he intends them to be, quite comical.
"I got to the point where I didn't even wanna do interviews anymore because I would have the interview and we'd be laughing, me and the reporter, and that's funny, and then you read it and they completely just demolished all of my jokes," West told New York hip-hop station Hot 97 host Angie Martinez. "They just set 'em up wrong."
As of press time, West had nearly 600,000 Twitter followers and was following no one. Since launching his account two weeks ago, he's managed to send out nearly 300 tweets. And he says he's enjoying this form of communication. "I couldn't communicate and now I can communicate just in a sound bite and give people a glimpse of everything. It's good," he explained.
In addition to getting deep about his Twitter account, West discussed the release of his highly anticipated next album. The still-untitled LP drops November 16. He also shared that he will put out a remix of "Power," featuring Jay-Z, on Friday and that the album will include the just-released "See Me Now," which features Beyoncé and Charlie Wilson. West released the artsy clip for his single "Power" just last week.
