We were starting to think that Kanye had forgotten about his favorite 140-character creative outlet.
But thankfully, he’s back. It appears as though he’s at his tweetiest when he’s idle; after a long run of only-occasional peeps while he was on the road with Jay-Z promoting Watch the Throne, last night he inexplicably rolled out a mind-boggling statement of purpose on a cornucopia of topics.
Really, it’s worth it to read through the entirety of his idea dump, but just in case you don’t have the time to parse out everything Mr. West had to say, here are some of the highlights:
Kanye ne parle pas Francais: “Early 2011 … I moved to Paris and opened a small design studio… the language barrier was quite difficult…”
Meet George Jetson, his boy Kanye: “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!”
Fashion is a longtime passion that may or may not have once been derailed by Taylor Swift and a bottle of cognac: “I’ve been working at this for 8 years now …from the first offers to do urban clothing lines that I turned down… To begging Bape to do my line and never making any real headway… To having an office in LA that was shut down after the “MTV” moment along with my tour with GAGA”
He is flattered by fake tweets about his fashion line, though he would like them to stop anyway: “I really appreciate the fake DW twitter page but since it’s not official I can’t co sign any information on it.”
Nobody represents Kanye because he’s too loyal: “More clarity… I have no agency representing me currently… William Morris was fired after Cara lewis quit. I love Cara Lewis : )”
That’s a lot more albums to sell: “I care about people who have never heard of me… There are over 7 billion people on the planet now…”
Meet the new Secretary of Education: “Schools should be designed to prep human beings for real life. … Spike Jonze and I want to do a Summer school that tries new forms of cuuriculim”
Steve Jobs would have loved this one: “Instead of kicking kids out of schools for using there iPhones… why not promote it? Allow kids to use search engines to do test… like the real WORLD!!! Give kids the amount of test they would have in a year in one day but they have to get everything perfect…”
His accountant breathes a sigh of relief: “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…”
Let me leave you with a quote: “If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. … But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.” - George Bernard Shaw
