Kanye West: 'Don't Buy Any Louis Vuitton Until After January!'

Kanye West: 'Don't Buy Any Louis Vuitton Until After January!'

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West leave a radio station together on Monday afternoon (November 25) in New York City.

The 33-year-old reality star is hanging out with Kanye, 36, while he does a quick radio tour in the Big Apple today to promote his Yeezus Tour.

In an interview with 92.3 Now, Kanye took aim at the fashion brand Louis Vuitton for not wanting to meet with him and he asked his fans to boycott the company until after the holidays.

“While I was in Paris I wanted to meet the head of Louis Vuitton and he said ‘I don’t understand why we need to meet with you?’ I said let me explain to you why you need to meet with me,” he said before sending out a message to his fans. “Everybody in New York City right now, don’t buy any Louis Vuitton until after January… Now do you wanna meet with me? Influence… they think that I don’t realize my power.”

    Acting like a stupid spoiled imbecile, even if people loose their jobs because of your message ? Just go to hell, I hate the Vuitton brand, but if I was the Head, I would NEVER MEET YOU.

    What do you mean about ghetto? If you look at his fan base and go to his concerts, its mostly well to do white kids. I hope you’re not equating ghetto with black.

    Drew Says:

    Wow! Just another reason I’m buying Louis Vuitton bags for Christmas gifts..If he wants to be seen as a professional and collaborate with the big dogs, he needs to stop acting like a child and gain a little humility. Louis Vuitton is a leader in the fashion industry, Kanye is not even close, yet his sense of entitlement has clouded his vision so much that he thinks he is owed respect in every field just because he has been successful in one. Just because you’re a good or famous musician, doesn’t make you a talented fashion designer, engineer, or even “Steve Jobs” as he has aspired to be. It’s called narcissism and he needs some serious help. No longer a Kanye fan!

    @allison: now that I think about it maybe him and LV have some agreement and hes saying this so ppl CAN go and buy it just becuz he said so and hes hated so everyone is going to do the opposite and buy from LV

    He’s such an idiot! He doesn’t even have a legion of fans WFT and he’s so arrogant and so annoying!!!

    Kanye apparently does not realize what an arrogant self absorbed narcissistic don’t believe the hype idiot he really is. He believes his own press and drinks his own kool-aid. I wish he and Kim would just go somewhere and sit down. I am tired extremely tired of the both of you. Moreover, I feel sorry for North. These people will be her primary role models. Sad.

    wait Says:

    I say do nothing unless LV was already on your list. This yackye is a fool and could be playing us so he can prove his low value to the brand. See he probably knows noone is going to stop buying it but he knows you will go buy because he made the command against LV like he has some kind of power.

    I say go about business as usual. Let foolye fall flat on his busted face.

    gnfsn Says:

    @29 – Kim is with this guy because nobody else wants her; she’s yesterday’s trash that belongs in the garbage dump, along with him. These two are truly delusional, vain, greedy, self-absorbed fools who care nothing about anyone or anything other than themselves and their bank accounts.

    radick Says:

    So just because the head of LV had no desire( Why would he anyways) to meet him whatsoever, he throws a temper tantrum and threatens to boycott the brand? LOL good luck Kanye. The brand’s major ambassdor is Angelina Jolie. I hope her fans buy a ton of LV stuff just to piss of Kanye and his *****!
    Kanye probably wanted freeebies from LV for his ***** Kim, but LV only wants sophiscated woman owning those handbags. LV and trash don’t mix, so no bags for Kim.
    Thats why Angelina Jolie is an ambassdor and not trashy D lister Kim. As if LV, Dior, Chanel, Gucci would ever give stuff to Kim.

    why do you need to meet with louibitin?? You arent important enough.

    st8fr Says:

    Instead of boycotting Louis Vuitton like Kanye says to do people need to boycott these two cretins. If only the media would quit writing about them on a daily basis maybe they would crawl back under the rock they slithered out from.

    lasiea Says:

    I think people should boycott Kanye West and Kim Kardshain. Oh wait, people must have boycotted Kanye West since he had to give away many,many free tickets to his crap shows.
    And Kim has a failing reality tv show. So both of them are going down. No network, not even E! will want to do a televise a wedding for her again. She scamed them. Her marriage to that Kris H. was fake and she never returned the wedding gifts. And since she is so obessed with the british Royal Family for some strange reason, the only time they will try to get married is when Prince Harry does. Just to try(and fail again) to one up the Royals.

    mememe Says:

    I think I can hear the cashier registers in NY and across the US go KA CHING KA CHING KA CHING KA CHING!!! In solidarity and protest AGAINST fool running around thinking he is Yeezus and his girlfriend of porn fame that he thinks is more powerful than the first lady of the United States. Little help dude: Vuitton is a brand that has been holding it up for 160 years and probably will be for 160 more. You are a musician who’s star will fade sooner or later. Because honestly, some of your music may be good, but in no way good enough to be immortal. Just like you. You’re no Pac!

    liz Says:

    just ignore kanye. who knows what drugs he’s on. he’s got his head so far up his own a$$ that he genuinely thinks of himself as a god. and apparently he thinks there is nothing more to life than money and designer clothing.

    Sam Says:

    Who are you people kidding no one over the age of 25 is buying Kanye crap music and any fans that are white ate stupid teenagers or losers like Leo DiCaprio who think he’s a teenager…. And none of them have the money to buy $5000 thousands wallets or would care if what Kanye thinks of a high fashion brand.

    Ava Says:

    Kanye West can’t even sell his own album ( which bombed) or concert tickets he’s already canceled 3 shows for low tickets sells, his World Tour is really just 20 shows in North America, the only influence he has are over some pathetic people in America, why would a French couture Brand give a sh*t about him.

    Canon Says:

    Wow, there’s an ego that is waaaay out of control! Why on Earth would the head of a major corporation feel the NEED to take time out of his busy day just because someone he’s never met wanted to say hello? Was he going to try to get an endorsement deal so he could get lots of free goods for his far too materialistic wife? To LV, he is just one of millions of celebrities and rich people who cart around their overpriced, obnoxiously logo’d baggage. It’s pretty ugly stuff. No idea why it’s such an ‘important’ brand, but either way, I’m sure their CEO has better things to do than stop his day for Kanye West. He thinks he’s Elvis or something.

  69. 69
    W Says:

    :) Well I guess the reason why the head of LV doesn’t bother with him is clear. Does he really think him&this Kardasian are the Hollywood royals? Just go rehearse for his televised wedding already….

    BehindBlondiePark Says:

    I don’t no what he does to be so stupid…what ever it is…it really works.
    Add stupidity and other character defect… narcissism…an idiot…When science discovers the center of the universe, he’s going to be disappointed to find that he’s not it.

    Territc Says:

    What an arrogant *******! Who the hell does he think he is. So what if the guy from Louis Vuitton doesn’t meet with him. Who is Kanye that he should meet with him. And now he think he tell people not to buy from Louis Vuitton just because they wouldn’t meet with him. Only idiots would do that. He needs to come back to earth with a bang. Fool.

    Mallory Says:

    Oh.dear.god. I have no words for that. What an idiot. What a ridiculous idiot. Who does he think he is? God or what?
    If I had some spare money to share right now- I’d buy the most expensive Louis-bag in NYC.

    mimi Says:

    sounds arrogant, but, he understand that any media would wrote anything that comes from his mouth.

    blame the media to pick him, if no one took attention to him, then he just realize he is famous because he talk. nothing special though.

    Cuntye Says:

    Haha good for you head of Louis Vuitton, he was like who is this prick and why the hell would I want to meet him. I have a job that requires actual work be done. So funny. I’m going out and getting a LV bag right now…oh I forgot, I’m poor. :(

    Lol is it real? Because he’s always about “Louis Vuitton Don” and publicly begged for an intership a few years ago, so I thought he had good relations with the brand. Either it’s a stunt or he’s a douche as usual

  94. 94
    Oh please. Says:

    Lolololol.

    What an egomaniac, as IF the head of LV would care about what a delusional, narcissistic & self entitled dou*he like Kanye had to say!

    I really don’t understand why celebrities like Leo & others go to his concerts or want to be linked to him in any way!

    He’s music is cr*p yet he just declared himself the greatest rock star in the world…yet he had to give away free tickets to fill his concert & compared to other A list music stars he can’t fill huge arenas anymore on tour.

    Who does he think he is, last month he said he & Kim were the most influential couple & that she should be on the cover of Vogue…lol.

    Kim’s famous for her sex tape, her marriage for money wedding & her fake reality show.

    I feel sorry for Nori having such self absorbed parents that they never take her anywhere & she’s always at home with the Nanny.

    LV should release a statement just before January saying there sales had increased all over the world then watch him through a tantrum!!!!

Your fans wear payless shoes, plastic soles, and shoe dazzle brand lol by your fat ass gold digger girlfriend! Everything you do, is to, out do someone else. That says one thing,,,,INSECURE! You are never going to be a happy soul. You really need to learn to be humble, and get into some kind of therapy, to get in touch of your anger, You are constantly walking around angry….What a shame, just goes to show how money doesn’t make you happy! You have so much pain inside of you, and you really need help! If you could learn how to be gentle , and knid perhaps people would except you more. You are your worse enemy! You are not a great rapper, you are where you are because of who you knew…otherwise you would still be on the streets! My goodness… get a grip on your life, and stop flaunting your fat ass Kim on videos that someday your daughter is going to see! Where are your morals , and values…..Oh that’s right, you have none! And your so short, perhaps you have little man syndrome. Oh but your not a man, because real men don’t act like this! Have a great day!

    Lol all those people hate kanye but everything he designs goes sold goes on eBay for like 10 times the retail price. I wouldn’t even buy Louis Vuitton because that brand is old ( and I can afford ) only if kanye make some new lv dons.
