Some call him crazy, others call him genius, but one thing for sure is that Kanye West definitely keeps us talking. In a new interview with Vanity Fair, the 39-year old father and mogul opens up about his new controversial video “Famous”, his feelings about former President George W. Bush and what makes his marriage with Kim Kardashian work. See a few excerpts below.
On getting Kim Kardashian’s co-sign on ‘Famous’:
[I say] a lot of lines other wives would not allow a husband to say but my wife also puts up photos that other husbands wouldn’t let them put up. One of the keys to happiness in our marriage is we’re allowed to be ourselves.
On his feelings toward former President George W. Bush:
Maybe in some alternative universe me and George Bush could have been friends. I could have been his O.J. Simpson black friend on the golf course.
On his inclusion of Bill Cosby in ‘Famous’:
It’s not in support or anti any of [the people in the video] it’s a comment on fame.
On being careful to keep his ‘Famous’ images artistic:
We were very careful with shots that had [something] sexual to take them out.
