‘I am a god’ and 9 more insane things Kanye West said in his W Magazine interview

Kanye West’s egotistical nature is so widely documented that it is not even shocking anymore. (RELATED: Kanye West is Michael Jordan and Steve Jobs, says Kanye West)

But sometimes he says something so ludicrously hilarious that to not reprint what he said would be unfair to the masses who deserve a good laugh every now and then.

In this case, West spent a few days with a writer from W Magazine and in that time period made some of the most ridiculous statements of all time. Here are the 10 most insane things Kanye said:

  1. The whole point of Kanye West, according to Kanye West is “[t]o make Kanye West as dope as possible.”
  2. “Man, I’m the No. 1 living and breathing rock star. I am Axl Rose; I am Jim Morrison; I am Jimi Hendrix.”
  3. On a fashion designer’s attempt to tell him what fashion shows to go to: “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.”
  4. Kanye on his inability to articulate what Kanye is trying to say: “I’ll use the wrong word, so it goes from being really special to completely retarded.”
  5. “Visiting my mind is like visiting the Hermès factory. Shit is real. You’re not going to find a chink. It’s 100,000 percent Jimi Hendrix.”
  6. On interior design: “I love banquettes and shit.”
  7. “Now, I just do exactly what I want, whenever I want, how the fuck I want. ‘Fuck you’ is my message.”
  8. Kanye on his impact on EVERYTHING: “…people are going to look back 10 or 20 years from now and say, ‘Man, I remember such and such was like this, but then Kanye got involved, and now it’s like this.’”
  9. His substance of choice: …”my ego is my drug. My drug is, ‘I’m better than all you other motherfuckers. Kiss my ass!’”
  10. Finally, what does his song “I Am God” really mean?: ”I made that song because I am a god.”
