INTERVIEWS: Kanye West FREESTYLES On Power 106, DISHES ON Wedding Plans And Kim K, Says "We Get Paid To Exploit Ourselves"
Kanye West stopped by Power 106 FM today where he freestyled for Big Boi and talked about getting engaged to Kim Kardashian and if he'll ever put North West on television. Watch the clip inside....
Kanye West appeared on the Power 106's “Big Boy’s Neighborhood” morning show today which he opened up about his proposal to to Kim Kardashian, what he thinks about luxury brands and the impact he hopes his music will have on the world. He also hinted at the spectacular wedding fans/viewers/critics will get to see and if he'll ever "exploit" North West. Oh, and he said he's not above (al of a sudden) getting his wedding paid for by tv. Here are the highlights:
On loving Kim from a distance:
“I wanted to marry that girl from the first time I saw her, and I just had to wait through a bunch of relationships to finally get my chance."
On the wedding:
[The wedding date] is gonna be next summer. I only got two words in my mind as far as ideas for the wedding, that’s: fighter jets.
On if he plans to make money off the wedding and willingly exploiting himself:
I would take as much as possible. What’s official for everybody in this room and everybody on this globe right now is them bills. If you can help out with those bills, because you know me and Kim are in the exploitation business. We get paid to exploit ourselves.
On keeping North West off reality tv:
I’m [going to] give my daughter the opportunity to choose when she wants to be exploited. That’s the reason we didn’t take any money for any baby pictures.”
On luxury brands:
If I had the opportunity to design for Louis Vuitton now, I wouldn’t because the prices are too extreme and I don’t want to use my message to have kids saving up that much to be apart of what the ideas are. That’s the problem for me with luxury.
On his inspirations:
[I'm inspired by] Walt Disney, Jesus, my father, Steve Jobs. But if you talk about rappers, of course I love Kendrick, Drake, Pusha, Future. I like the [Drake's] ‘Going Home.
On recording music and making an impact:
I record when I feel like it. I just don’t care at all. I’m not really rapping, I’m just putting messages to a beat at a certain point. It’s not just for the sake of making a song. I’m using my platform to message exactly what I want to message and burn down some buildings and inspire people.
On using music to inspire:
I just wanna be that sonic espresso, that sonic cocaine. When you’re on your way to work and you gotta deal with a boss or on a way to an interview, I want you to play that Yeezus and feel like you can do anything.
On the infamous BBC interview:
After I finished the BBC interview, I was shaking like, man what did I just do. I just really came from the heart completely. I was like, I don’t know what’s gonna happen afterwards, I know that God got me. And it was that serious to me. When I saw it classified as a joke, I said this is exactly what the media do. They trying to distract you from these actual messages. It’s not a matter of what I’m doing, it’s a matter of what everybody else can do.
