Brilio.net - The fine line between reality and media is blurred yet again by one of its most powerful manipulator, Yeezy himself. Kanye West, in very Kanye West fashion, said he was $53 million in debt on February 14th. On Twitter. conveniently the same day that his album “The Life of Pablo” drops. And one day before his fashion line debuts.
Guessing him and wife Kim Kardashian don’t have a shared account, as the business savvy socialite has her own Emojis, app, and even a coffee table worthy book full of selfies.
He claims that while he is rich, which is hard to miss as his two year old daughter is always seen in lavish furs, he maintains that he “needs access to more money in order to bring more beautiful ideas to the world.” Kanye, this is probably the only time we will all say this – we can relate to you. A little bit of extra cash flow could go a long way, especially in kick starting young creatives on their careers.
In his Twitter messages, Mr. West stays far from modest and admits his lavish lifestyle but claims he needs more money to create what he really envisions for himself. Truth be told, he has had some (expensive) flops in his budding fashion career. His 2009 label Pastelle folded after just nine months , and his high-end women’s fashion line, lovingly called Kanye West failed to take off in 2011. While he has had wild success with his Nike Air Yeezy line, it wasn’t enough to recover the losses of previous attempts at fashion.
I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt... Please pray we overcome... This is my true heart...— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 14, 2016
We’ve all been strapped for cash, but we haven’t all directly asked Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO, for $1 billion so the lucky public could continue in appreciating, and then not purchasing, Kanye’s art.
Whatever the reasons, celebrities are just like us – even Kanye has debt! So do as he says and send him a prayer. Someone’s got to keep entertaining us, right?
