Kanye West on Running for President & Wanting Ikea Collaboration


Kanye says it’s not about politics for him – it’s about humanity and being awake to shootings and murderers which society has become numb to over time. He wants to help and make a difference somehow, which is why he said he would run for president:

“When I talk about the idea of being president, I’m not saying I have any political views. I just have a view on humanity, on people, on the truth. We are numb, we’re numb to 500 kids getting killed in Chicago a year, we’re numb to the fact that it was seven police shootings in the beginning of July. If there is anything that I can do with my time and my day, to somehow make a difference while I’m alive I’m going to try to do it.”

When he was performing at Glastonbury and everything started to go wrong, the rapper says he lost his cool and everything went out the window during the performance:

“It was incredible. I started off the show and I completely messed up the music. And me, as you can imagine by this phone call, I’m a bit of a perfectionist. So it really put me into a slightly depressed state and it put me back in the position of when I was in high school and I got fired from my job. I don’t usually get nervous, I prepare, I get fully prepared. When that music messed up in the beginning it tapped into my nerves and when you’re nervous or vulnerable something special and something different can happen.”

Kanye says his next dream collaboration is actually with IKEA and he would actually like to create college dorm furniture that makes life easier and cleaner:

“I have to work with IKEA, make furniture for interior design, for architecture and I know that if I do a minimalist apartment inside of a college dorm where the TV goes on the side of the wall…Yo IKEA, allow Kanye to create. Allow him to make this thing because you know what, I want a bed that he makes, I want a chair that he makes – I want more products from Ye.”
