Who Better to Interview Kanye than Kanye?

If you haven’t heard by now, Kanye West wrote his own profile to go with his cover for Paper Magazine’s April 2015 issue. Remember a few months ago when Kim Kardashian “broke the internet” by covering the same magazine naked with a champagne bottle on her bottom? Kimye have built a new mould for what it means to be a power couple. Getting back to the cover, hearing that Kanye wrote his own story for the issue makes so much sense. It seems that there has never been a universal agreement on what image he’s trying to evoke and no one can put their finger on it. I know that Kanye has been interviewed by countless journalists and reporters, yet he’s one subject who would be hard to write about and make the transcriptions come out well. This is nothing against the man himself or the writers at hand, yet how do you write about a man who is constantly evolving? The inner workings of Kanye’s mind astound me and reading this article made me even more fond of him as an artist and a human being. It’s not common for cover stars to write their own profiles but Kanye isn’t your typical celebrity. His fame covers many fields and I can imagine he will continue to build and burn bridges wherever he goes in an endless cycle that is enticing and revolting all at once. It’s the name of the game but it’s one he’s the master at so take a gander at how it looks from his perspective and let me know what you think.
