Kanye West doesn’t like his new rug. The rapper appears to be redecorating his house — buying gold-encrusted goblets, coveting 19th century artwork and turning his home “real Kingish,” as he puts it. But the rugs are all wrong. “I specifically ordered Persian rugs with cherub imagery!!!” He wrote on Twitter on Wednesday. “What do I have to do to get a simple Persian rug with cherub imagery uuuuugh.”
Oh, Kanye. We’ve missed you.
Hip-hop’s most ridiculous rapper has been relatively quiet in recent months — ever since that 2009 MTV Video Music Awards outburst about Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” video being better than Taylor Swift’s (which, by the way, it was), after which someone on his p.r. team apparently told him to shut it until the backlash died down. Well, time’s up. West has a new album out in September — formerly called Good Ass Job, it’s currently without a name — and the promotional firestorm is kicking into gear. West performed at the BET Awards in June and has appeared at the khaki-clad offices of Facebook and Twitter. Then, on July 28, he opened a Twitter account. And here’s what we discovered: West is funny.
