Kanye West stayed up late last night sharing a stream-of-consciousness tweet fest with fans. Read what he had to say.
This is what happens when you drink too much coffee too late at night: A torrent of so-called genius ideas is unleashed on an unsuspecting Twitter fan base only to be relentlessly mocked by the media the next day.
Kanye West went crazy on Twitter last night, and while the music impresario is known for having one of the most entertaining feeds around, last night’s truly takes the cake.
West ranted about everything from fashion to Steve Jobs to the state of education in America. Some of our favorite selections:
“I appreciate everyone’s support for my clothing line but I wanted to clarify a few things… ‘Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.’ – Leonardo Da Vinci”
“More clarity… I have no agency representing me currently… William Morris was fired after Cara Lewis quit. I love Cara Lewis : )”
“I designed a sneaker called the YEEZY with Nike. I’m ‘allowed’ to design 1 pair of sneakers every 2 years. I have more ideas…”
“I still don’t have a Paris VAT number to this day… I don’t know what a VAT [is] but every time I asked why we didn’t have fabrics they said…”
“…it was because of the VAT.”
“I remember being 5 years old picking and my mother taking me with her shopping at the discount fur spots. She said I would always point to the most expensive furs even as a child LOL.”
“Being a celebrity has afforded me many opportunities but has also boxed me in creatively.”
“I was just discussing becoming the creative director for the Jetson movie and someone on the call yelled out.. you should do a Jetsons tour! This just happened a few hours ago. I was very insulted of course becuase for anyone that’s seen the Watch the Throne Tour… you know I have real ideas…”
“Good logic tells me smile Kanye… the world likes you again… red or blue pill?… aaaaand Swallow lol.”
“Spike Jonze and I want to do a Summer school that tries new forms of cuuriculim… We need to take what Michael Jackson felt and Mcqueen and Steve Jobs and we need make things better…”
“The adrenaline is running… I don’t know if I can even get to sleep now… From Wall street to the London riots to Chicago murders… I know this is not a very rapper thing to say but I haven’t bought a new car or piece of jewelry in about 2 years…”
Wow. Hopefully he’s gotten some sleep. Check out Kanye West’s Twitter feed for the complete mess.
