We’re not saying Kanye West has a giant ego and a God complex, but dude literally has a song called 'I am a God' on his album titled 'Yeezus.'
And now, you can see the world the way Kanye sees the world: By buying The Book of Yeezus — a self-described “bible for the modern day,” that takes the Book of Genesis and replaces every mention of “God” with “Kanye” or “Yeezus.”

The bad news is that it’s in totally poor taste to take someone’s religion and turn it into some joke. The worse news is that Kanye is still convinced he actually is some kind of powerful and very important religious figure (aka Jesus…).
Just today (April 10), ‘Ye gave an interview to ‘T: The New York Times Magazine’ in which he likened himself to the biblical icon. This time, it was in reference to his presence in the fashion world.

“It’s literally like… I know this is really harsh, but it’s like Before Yeezy and After Yeezy,” he told ‘T.’ “This is the new Rome!”
Really, Kanye? That’s something alright, but “harsh” isn’t the word we’d use to describe it. Extreme? Perhaps. Insane? You bet.

Let’s be real for a sec, ‘Ye… Do you really think we’re going to look back at the fashion industry and say, “Diane von Furstenberg invented the wrap dress in 1972 43 BY” just because you decided that full-body Spanx were a good idea and attempted to make couture grey sweat suits a “thing” and decided to let Kylie Jenner play dress-up?

Come on, the least you could’ve done is acknowledged the more PC way of naming the calendar, which is using “BCE” (before the common/current era) instead of BC (before Christ).
We know what you’re thinking: “Wow, that Kanye is SO clueless!” Right?
Except that he's totally aware of what a massive douchebag he is, and he continues to be a massive douchebag. This time, he explained it with an analogy that didn’t involve likening himself to a cultural icon (amazing, right?)!

“I have this table in my new house. They put this table in without asking. It was some weird nouveau riche marble table, and I hated it,” he told ‘T.’
“But it was literally so heavy that it took a crane to move it. We would try to set up different things around it, but it never really worked. I realized that table was my ego. No matter what you put around it, under it, no matter who photographed it, the douchebaggery would always come through.”
Hey Kanye, since you’re such a ~FaShIoN LeGeNd~, have you considered designing a tablecloth?
That way, you can keep your douchebaggery under wraps...
