Kanye West breaks his no-media rule in a rare interview with The New York Times- and what he says will shock you! What's up guys you're watching your music news on ClevverMusic here on YouTube. In a new controversial interview with The New York Times called "Behind Kanye's Mask", singer Kanye West talks new album "Yeezus" coming June 18 and compares himself to Michael Jordan and Steve Jobs! But the most surprising part of the interview involves his now famous interruption of Taylor Swift accepting an award at the 2009 VMAs. The 36-year-old rapper said to the magazine: "I don't have one regret." Referring to the moment he rushed the Country singer on stage at the award show. Kanye continued saying, "If anyone's reading this waiting for some type of full-on, flat apology for anything, they should just stop reading right now." He went on to say the apology was a "backhanded apology", and he didn't really mean it.
Now that we are clear there are no regrets in the world of Kanye, let's tackle this next surprising quote from the interview. Kanye compared himself to the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs saying quote, "I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means. I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of the Internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period." Bascially, he is going to rewrite history. Kanye then went on to talk about his disappointment with not yet winning an Album of the Year at the Grammys and how he has had to fight for justice saying, "You know, if Michael Jordan can scream at the refs, me as Kanye West, as the Michael Jordan of music, can go and say, 'This is wrong.'"
Kanye's latest album Yeezus debuts this Tuesday and he revealed that there are collaborations with Daft Punk, RZA, Chief Keef, Hudson Mohawke, Justin Vernon and Rick Rubin. Maybe he'll get Album of the Year for this one?
The New York Times interview wraps up with Kanye describing the moment he knew he was going to become famous stating it was when he wrote the line in his song "Slow Jamz", "Light-skinned friend look like Michael Jackson." After all this Kanye info overload, tell us what you think of this pompous interview! Will you be checking out his new album "Yeezus"?
