Kanye West has yet again managed to make us all go … “Ummm, huh?”
Ye jumped on board a wild and emotional roller coaster earlier this month and sadly, hasn’t hopped off. First, the rapper came under fire for announcing during his show in San Jose last week that IF he had voted on election day, his vote would have gone to President-elect Donald Trump.
Then, the father of two angered hundreds of fans over the weekend during his show in Sacramento when he decided to sing two songs, rant, then bounce.
The rapper then cancelled the remaining dates of his Saint Pablo Tour following a string of bizarre outbursts and NOW, the rapper is leading the world to believe that one day we will all be communicating in emojis and sign language.
During a recent interview with Surface magazine, the 39-year-old explained that, “I don’t think people are going to talk in the future. They’re going to communicate through eye contact, body language, emojis, signs. Imagine that. If everyone was forced to learn sign language.”
The rapper continued, “When I was a kid, I’d see people who only spoke sign language and think, ‘Wow, that’s gotta be difficult.’ I was really happy I could speak. Now, I would prefer to [pantomimes someone signing] ― do that without having to use words.”
Kanye, who is never at a loss for words, told the publication, “It’s funny because I’ve made a living off of words, but words get in the way of what you really want to say.” He added, “Thank God for emojis. So often one emoji goes a long way and lets me get on with my whole day.”
Kim Kardashian’s husband, who is known for having what we call “diarrhea of the mouth,” also shockingly expressed his disdain for small talk. Say whaaaat?
“I don’t want to be a jerk, but there are certain people who are geniuses. Their emotional and social IQ is super high and they can get stuff done. Often, people who get really amazing stuff done have to cut off their emotional IQ,” he said. “I can’t stand this whole, ‘How was your day?’ thing that agents always say.”
“I’m like, ‘You don’t care about my day. Why’d you ask me about my day? Did we get done what we were supposed to get done?’ But I do want to know how my daughter’s day was. I do want to get an explanation of what she learned in school. I sincerely care about that,” he said.
This now draws us to the question we’ve been asking for the past year: Is Kanye West genius or crazy?
