Unleashing his newest creation, Kanye West was spotted at the premiere of his short film “Runaway” in Los Angeles last night (October 18).
The “Love Lockdown” rapper looked to be in a good mood as he arrived at the Harmony Gold Theatre, sporting a black suit and black sunglasses.
During an interview at the event, Kanye confessed that he’s seen some pretty dark days over the course of his life, but things are looking up.
“There were times that I contemplated suicide. I will not give up on life again. There’s so many people that will never get the chance to have their voice heard. I do it for them.”
The latest drama in Kanye West’s life revolves around his new album cover.
The front of “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” depicts two figures straddling each other on a couch, and West’s album art won’t be allowed in America.
Of course, West had plenty to say about the censorship, and he took to his Twitter to fully express himself.
Kanye tweeted, “Yo! They banned my album cover! Banned in the USA! They don’t want me chilling on the couch with my phoenix!”
He continued, ”In the ’70’s, album covers had actual nudity… It’s so funny that people forget that… Everything has been so commercialized now. I know that cover just blew y’all minds… I wish y’all could see how hard I’m smiling right now! In all honesty, I really don’t be thinking about Wal-Mart when I make my music or album covers. I wanna sell albums but not at the expense of my true creativity.”
And although he has over one million followers on Twitter, Kanye West will not follow just anybody.
The “Jesus Walks” rapper recently hand-picked 15 supermodels as the only account holders he chooses to follow on the social networking site.
As for whom the models are? Just listen to the words of his new song “Christian Dior Denim Flow” released two weeks ago.
“I heard Bar was friends with Esti Ginzburg,” he raps. “Coco Rocha, Kate Mimosa/Alessandra Ambrosio, Anja Rubik, get Olga Kurylenko tell her I’m very single/Abbey Lee, too I’m a freak boo/I’m wylin I’m on a thousand/wanna see Irina Shayk next to Doutzen.”
