Kanye West Calls Himself A 'Very Commercial Celebrity Boyfriend'

Rapper Kanye West wants everyone to know that he considers himself to be a “very commercial celebrity boyfriend”. It’s the perfect title for the rapper who is currently dating reality star Kim Kardashian. She is everything commercial, so perhaps this is a match made in heaven?

In a recent interview, Kanye compared himself to Steve Jobs along with Andy Warhol. He also says that he is battling the public’s perception of him just because of who he is dating.

During a secret listening party for his new album Yeezus, he said, “I fight in my position of being a very commercial celebrity boyfriend. I fight to push culture forward every chance I get.”

He also spoke of changing the world through his music. he said, “I only frown because paparazzi ask me dumb*ss s**t all the time, and I think about changing the world. I think about what I can do to make things better. When I used to go to fashion shows with my boys…it was almost like a civil rights sit-in. They wouldn’t even let us in. They had no idea what rap would mean…to the art world.”

He went on to say, “What I want people to understand about sampling and producing is that it’s really similar to — and I know this is obvious what I’m going to say, because I’m a black guy so I’m gonna name the most obvious artist in the world’ Warhol, but it’s very similar to the…Warhol would appropriate a Campbell’s Soup can is the way I would sonically appropriate a Ray Charles sample or a Michael Jackson sample.”
