Kanye West Won’t Play If He’s Not Getting Paid, Reveals What Kim Kardashian’s Photos Do to Him
Kanye West may be a happily married man but that hasn't calmed his outspoken ways in the least. The rapper pulled what some might call "the diva card" at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity this week, when he demanded that the labels be removed from water bottles onstage.
West, who joined the festival to voice his opinion on endorsements and music, made sure that he wasn't wrongly represented by having branded water bottles around him -- especially since he had no signed contract with a brand.
“Kanye said he wasn’t going to be photographed promoting a brand if he’s not being paid for it," a festival source told the New York Post's Page Six. "Organizers had to scramble to rip off the labels before his session started.”
West also pointed out how celebrities and brands align and insisted that he only supports the best. This is one MC who won't be working with anything (or anyone) less than the best.
"I am not a fan of Samsung, by the way," he said when the topic was brought up about Jay Z's alignment with the tech company. “The reason I said I didn’t like Samsung is because throughout my entire life … I have to work with the No. 1, I can’t work with anyone but Jay Z, I can’t be with any girl but Kim because that’s the girl that I look at her pictures the most and get turned on the most. I am not going to represent any company except Louis Vuitton because that’s the best.”
Bringing up the fact he gets aroused by his wife's photos during a business discussion is a bit TMI, don't you think?
