Kanye West isn't exactly known for being too humble. If anything, he has quite a reputation for his overinflated ego, which makes him say some of the most outrageous things out there – which is why we probably shouldn't be that surprised to hear of his funeral plans.
Regular people probably don't waste too much time thinking or making plans about their funeral unless, of course, they're old or ill.
Kanye, however, sees his own funeral as the perfect occasion for the crème de la crème to gather and hang out. He even knows the kind of people he wants to have present.
“I wanna have world leaders [at my funeral] that were, like, affected, that said, you know, ‘Kanye gave me my shot here’,” Celebs.com cites him as saying.
“Or ‘he pushed me,’ or ‘he told me to believe in myself,’ or ‘when I saw this, it made me feel like that.’ I wanna affect people like that when I, like, pass away,” adds the rapper.
As noted above, Kanye is known (and much disliked) for saying things like this and for getting into public spats that only tarnish his image some more.
A while back, he got into a “feud” with Matt Lauer after a disastrous interview on Today. He also tried to start a Twitter spat with Britney Spears and certainly did not mince his words when he spoke about the treatment he got after the Taylor Swift episode.
While West remains immune to what people are saying about him in the press and online (mostly because his fans still buy his music regardless of that), he does believe there's a plot against him, to make him look bad.
“I walk through the hotel and I walk down the street, and people look at me like I’m [expletive]-ing insane… like I’m Hitler,” he once told his fans in concert, as we also informed you at the time.
“One day the light will shine through and one day people will understand everything I ever did,” he added.
World leaders will be among them.
