Kanye is a God

And don’t you forget it, Hedi

Most of us would think twice about dissing Kanye West. So we can’t help but feel a little sympathy for Hedi Slimane today, after it’s been revealed that he is the subject of one of the rapper’s lyrical outbursts.

During an epic interview with Zane Lowe on BBC Radio One yesterday, West revealed that new album Yeezus is ‘what frustration sounds like’ – and confirmed that the track I Am A God was indeed written in response to a perceived slight by the Saint Laurent creative director.

While West is a regular on the front row at Givenchy, you won’t see him at Saint Laurent. That’s because Slimane once apparently told him that, if he wanted to attend his show, he couldn’t go to any others.

Apparently, this was not cool by Kanye.

Fashionista cites an interview Kanye did with W Magazine on the subject: ‘Cause it’s like, Yo! Nobody can tell me where I can and can’t go. Man, I’m the number-one living and breathing rock star.

‘I am Axl Rose; I am Jim Morrison; I am Jimi Hendrix. You can’t say that you love music and then say that Kanye West can’t come to your show.’

Not that he cares. Slimane ‘got some nice $5000 jeans’, but so what, says Kanye? ‘Rap is the new rock and roll. We are culture.’
