“Everything in the world is exactly the same.” This is what Kanye West told us matter-of-factly in his interview on Late Night with Seth Meyers when Meyers asked him the difference between approaching fashion and music. Kanye West, everyone, philosopher of the 21st century.
West made some predictably out-there statements in his 10-minute interview, including the above, but the best part of it was that he laughed at himself.
Meyers brought up how West had an idea for a sketch when he was a musical guest on Saturday Night Live in 2007: The rapper, not yet famous for interrupting Taylor Swift at that point but definitely famous for ranting about his loss at the MTV Europe Music Awards, would interrupt other competitions, including the Kids’ Choice Awards and a pumpkin contest at a state fair in the skit. West started to laugh at the mention of this sketch, and after Meyers showed the pumpkin patch clip, the usually straight-faced West was all smiles.
After the interview, West went on to perform a medley of his greatest hits, ranging from the decade-old “Jesus Walks” to the newer “Black Skinhead” with only his silhouette showing behind a stream of flashing lights for most of the performance. Watch below:
