Kanye loves hummus...

And other important revelations from his rider requests


How does Kanye love hummus? Let us count the ways. He asked for it in his rider, apparently, along with plenty of edible scooping implements, and a full length mirror to truly enjoy special humye (hummus and Kanye, get with it) time. He's probably also writing an entire album about hummus. Maybe. 

Kanye popped along to Oxford last week, to give a talk to students at the Oxford Guild Society at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. While he was there, he submitted some requests for his rider. Because he's Kanye West, and his rider must, therefore, be the Kanye best. 


Top of his requests: hummus. To accompany his hummus, he requested a "small veggie platter", complete with raw asparagus (weird). 

Kanye needed something to wash all that hummus-y goodness down, so he also asked for lots of Volvic water bottles, with the labels removed, loads of tea bags, and a double espresso. And a full length mirror, just for some added intrigue. 

Sadly, the society weren't able to buy a mirror at short notice, and were told by Argos that they would have to order one in. The HORROR. Thankfully, a girl kindly gave up the mirror from her room for the higher cause, lest she incur the wrath of Kanye. 

Alongside revealing his intimate eating habits, Kanye managed to make quite an impression during his visit. "He's an interesting guy, but it was all quite bizarre," said the guild's chairman to The Mirror. "I saw him walk past and he had the biggest childish grin. When he said 'That's all', class dismissed type-thing and walked out we thought he was going to come back in. But I knew when I was looking at his grin that this was classic Kanye." 

Classic Kanye.
