Kanye West: He’s just saying what we’re all thinking … unfortunately. Sure, everyone has grandiose daydreams about how much the planet will miss them when they go, but most of us have the common sense not to say them out loud. Kanye, on the other hand, has yet another beautiful, dark, twisted fantasy he’d like to share, this time involving all the political heavyweights that will bawl their eyes out when he passes. “I was just thinking about my funeral and stuff a couple days ago and thinking who would be at the funeral,” the rapper said in an interview given for fan site VOYR. Kanye, stop there! Stop while you’re ahead/not coming off like a complete narcissist!
But West continued, “People who I want to be in the funeral. I wanna have world leaders that were, like, affected, that said, you know, ‘Kanye gave me my shot here.’ Or, ‘He pushed me,’ or, ‘He told me to believe in myself,’ or, ‘When I saw this, it made me feel like that.’ I wanna affect people like that when I, like, pass away.” So, which world leaders need Kanye to give them a shot? Do we have a total misunderstanding of global politics? Are we to believe that if Kanye West just went into Israel and Palestine and grabbed the mics out of everybody’s hand, we could have peace in the Middle East? Kanye is the greatest statesman of all time! Of all time!
