Kanye West Covers Complex Magazine

Kanye West Covers Complex Magazine

Kanye West covers the futuristic April/May 2009 cover of Complex. Here are some of the issue’s highlights:

Why do you think there’s such a fixation on your sexuality? I really think it’s because society tries to dictate the way a guy is supposed to dress and the way a guy is supposed to act, and I refuse to conform. A lot of these dudes would never be accused of being gay just because they all look exactly alike. If people could just realize the amount of mundaneness and followers that lack creativity… I think people’s mentality is like, Only gay people are that creative. And it’s true there are a lot of gay people who are incredible creative minds, but there are straight people who are incredible creative minds—and there’s gay people who can’t dress or create at all, too. Closed-minded gay people probably say they dress “straight.”

The magazine officially hits stands on April 7! Check out the full story at Complex.com.

    “The most influential brand in the universe”….? Really? I mean…way to blow this guys ego up even higher then it already is. I cant stand him and how whiny he is. He thinks everything is about him…or in some way is trying to “put the black man down”. I am sure he thinks he is so cute trying to pose as a “white” person. His way of “comedy” to show he is “better” then everyone. He makes me sick.

    HaHAha! First, I wanna say that as odd as it may sound, I actually love the futuristic cover! Maybe because it doesn’t even look like him XD Very well done and original…..but him…oh my gosh, I’ve never seen someone with a bigger ego than Kanye West. I loathe people like that.

    How is it possible that this semiliterate babbler’s mother was an English professor?

    taylorswiftfan Says:

    The cover is about challenging stereotypes just as his quote is. Saying he is “beyond human” because Kanye himself transcends stereotypes.
    I don’t know what’s up with his new fashionista image. I think he needs to stop flaunting and drop another classic like College Dropout.

    Speaking of classics. When is Black Star going to make another album!?!?
