MAGAZINE FAB: Kanye West Interviews Rihanna For "INTERVIEW" Magazine

Though they have collaborated on a number of projects, when Kanye West sat down to interview Rihanna for INTERVIEW Magazine, it proved they don't have much in common at all.  See highlights from the weird interview plus what Rihanna has to say about her "future" daughter inside...

 

We all love/hate Kanye, the"artist, because he is so "different" and now we know Kanye, the interviewer, is also on another level.  When he interviewed Rihanna, it seemed as though they were having two different conversations as he was on one level...and she on another.  She barely seem to understand what he was asking her and sometimes even she was confused by the questions.  See the highlights and pics below...

 

Check out this excerpt:

Kanye: How did you get signed?


Rihanna: Well, I met Evan [Rogers] and Carl [Sturken], these two producers who live here in New York. They are both married to Barbadian women, so they go there to vacation all the time. My friend introduced me to them, and I sang for them, and we talked, and they had me and my mom come back a couple of days later. After that, we started traveling to New York, working on a demo. Within a year, it was done, and we sent it out. Def Jam was the first label to call back. We got other calls, but they were the most enthusiastic. It was so nerve-wracking, though, the whole experience.

Kanye: Why?

Rihanna: I mean, I was 16. From Barbados. Like, you would never … the chances of ever meeting somebody famous or ever being signed — that was just a deadly combination. Like, I had to meet Jay-Z and audition for him at the same time.

Kanye: Do you know any famous people now?

Rihanna: Huh?

My thoughts exactly Rihanna.  Of course she knows famous people. 

 

And this one:

Kanye: So what inspired you to have that pink tank on your last tour? That was amazing, when you were sitting on top of the army tank.

Rihanna: I love to combine femininity with a kind of extreme masculine egde, and I felt like the tank is just not a typical thing that you think of when you think of a girl — or in any kind of relation to a girl. Then we made it hot pink. We just added that touch.

Kanye: I mean, people really need to see a photograph — the entire tank was pink. That was a great piece of commercial pop art. Was the idea of that to kind of portray an American Dream — like the fantasy of a this hot black girl sitting on a top of a pink tank?

Rihanna: I never actually thought of it like that.

Kanye: How does it feel to know that you could have any man in the world. Or woman. How does it feel to know that you can turn straight women gay?

Rihanna: Is that a real question?

Kanye: Yeah.

Rihanna: Well … Thank you. I don’t know how to feel about that. I guess that’s flattering.

Kanye: But just to have that level of power. How do deal with it? No one woman should have that much power.

 

I see where Kanye might have been going with the metaphor of a black girl atop a masculine weapon of destruction.  But Rihanna was not ready for that. 

On a lighter note, Kanye asked if she was ready for kids.  She said:

“I don’t really plan on the age. It could be a year from now. It could be 10 years from now. Whenever is right.  I mean, I have a lot of other stuff to accomplish before I get to kids. Whenever the time is right, I’ll just know."  She continued, ”If I had a girl, she’d probably be really rebellious.  She would be like a bundle of karma.”

I do like these pics though.  It's nothing out of the ordinary but the fashions are hot.

I see a lot of people are

I see a lot of people are late to catch on. It's Kanye mocking today's journalism. Playing a role, trying to be just like the journalists who interview him, asking him all types of ridiculous questions just to get a reaction. He did after all just do the Today Show interview, and was not hesitant in his feelings about that and the media. Brilliant, I do add.

Some of you guys are putting

Some of you guys are putting too much thought into this interview. How do you know what he was thinking? Whatevs Rihanna reason for the pink tank is her business. Sometimes a interview is just an interview. No hidden messages. If he wanted to be political then he should have asked her questions in a more direct way. I think she answered the questions just the way he asked them. No one would think other wise if Natasha wasn't making seem that way.

Kanye did a good job, I liked

Kanye did a good job, I liked the questions, most interviews are boring but he went outside the box. Althought the question about her turning straight women gay made me laugh, Megan Fox, Angelina Jolie, eve Kim Kardashian has the ability to turn straight women gay, Rihanna is just very well groomed- no wonder she has her head up her own a$$, folks filling her head with sh!t. I like the part about her being 16 in barbados, she got lucky Kanye is a genius, but she didn't get where he was going, and you all call Beyonce dumb?
lambdahling's picture

Am I the only one who noticed

Am I the only one who noticed the airbrushed thin arms and legs on Rihanna's body in every image? And Interview, really? Kanye? AND you PUBLISHED what he asked? No screening of questions BEFORE the interview? And with those questions asked... Kayne, you should know better than to ask Rihanna any sort of probative question. She's just a figurehead, duh. She puts on a good show, with little to no substance and stays pretty. She doesn't even have to remember proper dance routines. Ask questions that a simpleton can answer, not a philosopher.

Yall are the idiots lol....

Yall are the idiots lol.... The question "So do you know any famous ppl now" was referring her first comment about how she got signed... read the full interview you would see that she mention "I mean, I was 16. From Barbados. Like, you would never … the chances of ever meeting somebody famous or ever being signed — that was just a deadly combination." he was asking in a sarcastic/round about way has your definition of FAMOUS changed, what does it mean to be famous. If you do not pick up on symbolism, then thats just sad. The PINK TANK is very symbolic. To me, it brings up the idea of militant feminism, and aggressive women. I try not to be so harsh on ppl because I've spend my last few years researching media messages and feminism... but dang guys come on... I'm not going to say Rihanna is stupid, because I really don't think she is, but I will say that Kanye and Rihanna were having two different conversations, and she missed his objective. My question is, was Rihanna really behind the idea, and did she realize the magnitude of its symbolic meaning.
Anonymous's picture

Yall are the idiots ?....who

Yall are the idiots ?....who are u talking about exactly?...I think ppl just find her answer "huh"?...to be super funny in some kinda-odd-way! THE PINK TANK is very symbolic in the sense that it represents the "police-agenda state and the military aspect"...just like Black Eyed Peas "Imma Be" they capture this transhumanism, military aspect in their music videos. Beyonce as well, if u watch her "grammy's performance from 10" u can see she had the "military" and "police agenda" act as her stage set. This kinda thing is done with all pop & rnb acts like: Kylie Minogue, Christina Aguilera, Gaga (Alejandro) etc. a lot of the artists just copy-cat ea. other and re-cycle the same "image" to us. To comment on you not thinking rihanna is "stupid" goof for u if u don't think she is i personally think she sounds "dumb" at times and her lack of education and not completing "high-school" or getting a G.E.D does show u that interviews she isn't the "brightest one out of the bunch"!!
Fuk Da Industry Yours Sincerely's picture

and where did you get this

and where did you get this info from? Vigilant Citizen? lol The Pink Tank isn't just symbolic for its Illuminati references. It means more then just a militant agenda or transhumanism. This is not an attack, because I appreciate your comment. However, all the information you provided are the thoughts of someone else. Can we get back to research and critical thinking of our own? I guess that was my point which is why I didn't refer to the symbolism expressed by VC. (it's validity I am not debating) as to the idiots I was referring to those not realizing the implications of Kanye's questions, and just writing it off as psychic behavior. Also, I don't think Rihanna because she has to know what she does/doesn't do has an impact. Just because a person doesn't answer the question the way we desire them to answer the question doesn't automatically make them stupid. I know some may suggest I am giving her more credit then she deserves, but I feel she has some form of understanding. So I guess the real question to ask is how are we defining stupid? I prefer to call RiRi dingy instead of stupid. Even I have moments where questions and comment go over my head, and I'm far from stupid. Thats just the con of communication... not all ideas or question are properly expressed (which is were Kanye kind of failed). Anywho--- these are just my thoughts...
Anonymous's picture

I respect your opinion...i

I respect your opinion...i don't want to attack u! i was just putting out some sources about the PINKTANK u described that's all. I htink your opinion on ppl who have some form of understanding is basic analogy. Everyone has the ability to think but not everyone has the ability ot speak assertive, concise and clear interviews. Many of these celebs only have a "pretty face" they are not exactly the "brightest ones out of the bunch" we enjoy looking out them because the mass-media promotes thme in our faces. To comment on Kanye's rants i think he asked her a trick qu: "do u know any famous ppl?" answer: huh?...i am not surprised she said that but she could of said something humorous instead of replying huh? like (Scooby Doo). These are just my opnions.
