Kanye West is in the news again, this time against fashion house Louis Vuitton because they wouldn’t take a meeting with him.
“While I was in Paris I wanted to meet the head of Louis Vuitton and he said, ‘I don’t understand why we need to meet with you?’ I said, ‘Let me explain to you why you need to meet with me,’” the rapper said during a recent interview.
He added: “Everybody in New York City right now, don’t buy any Louis Vuitton until after January…Now do you wanna meet with me? Influence…they think that I don’t realize my power.”
He went on to share more of his wisdom, arguing that the his soon-to-be in-laws, the Kardashians, are changing the way America views interracial relationships.
Kanye, 36, said: ‘A lot of what the Kardashians do, I don’t think they get enough credit for what they do. They prep America to accept interracial relationships. …I’m not talking about me, I can hop on a plane. I can date a white woman, I can date a black woman, and no matter what they say in the barber shop don’t matter, because I don’t get my haircut there.
“For the people that do, though, there’s a white woman that’s getting talked down to by her friends because she’s dating a black guy. Now you’ve got a point of reference, that you can say, ‘Well, actually this couple right here, that’s dope.”‘
