In a recent interview, Kanye West discusses his desire to change hip-hop ... no shocker here, but the rapper/producer goes on to discuss why he wants "less fans" and how he plans to pose nude in the future.

"I want the freedom of having less fans. It's like the freedom of having less money. If you have less money, you have less responsibility," West explained. "It's like Bjork. If she wanted to pose naked, you'd be like, 'Oh, that's Bjork.' But if I wanted to pose naked, people would draw all type of things into it. I definitely feel like, in the next however many years, if I work out for two months, that I'll pose naked."

The controversial and outspoken rapper has been somewhat of a recluse in recent years, dodging paparazzi and avoiding interviews, but he doesn't shy away from claiming that he's the "greatest entertainer of this generation." But contrary to popular belief, West doesn't want millions of fans. The rapper admits that he'd rather have a smaller following, rather than a bevy of "fly-by-night" fans who only love him when he's on top.
