Kanye West: I Want Fewer Fans

Kanye West takes the February 2009 cover of Vibe. Here’s what the 31-year-old Grammy winner had to say (via MTV):

On if he’s comfortable with fame: “I made a decision. I wanna make popular music, but I want less fans. I want the freedom of having less fans. It’s like the freedom of having less money. If you have less money, you have less responsibility. It’s like Björk. If she wanted to pose naked, you’d be like, ‘Oh, that’s Björk.’ But if I wanted to pose naked, people would draw all type of things into it. I definitely feel like, in the next however many years, if I work out for two months, that I’ll pose naked. I break every rule and mentality of hip-hop, of black culture, of American culture.”

On giving praise where it is due: “I believe Beyoncé is the greatest performer of our generation. I believe I am the greatest entertainer of this generation. I go neck-and-neck on Jay-Z and [Lil] Wayne as far as who’s the best lyricist. Jay-Z has longevity.”
