Kanye West Insists He’s Not Crazy In New Interview With Director Steve McQueen

A new interview between 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen and Kanye West was posted on Interview Magazine recently. In the interview, West and McQueen talk a little about everything going on in Kanye’s life.

The Grammys, Yeezus, Kim Kardashian and the strange music video for “Bound 2”. Kanye claims that people are afraid of dreams, and that’s why the video was recieved as a big joke.

“I think people are afraid of dreams, and that video is one of the closest things to the way that dreams look and feel, or the way joy looks and feels, with the colors. You know, I think there are rules to fashion, with the all-black everything, and rules to art, with white galleries.

There are rules to how a lot of things are: the concrete jungle, stone pavement, brick walls. There are even rules to what a Brooklyn apartment looks like. But this video completely didn’t respect any of those rules whatsoever.”


Ah, okay! It makes perfect sense now. That was supposed to be a dream. I’ll take his word for it, but I do wonder why this “dream” video has given me nothing but nightmares.

McQueen also asked Kanye about his car accident back in 2002. He asked West how that crash impacted his life,

“I think I started to approach time in a different way after the accident. Before I was more willing to give my time to people and things that I wasn’t as interested in because somehow I allowed myself to be brainwashed into being forced to work with other people or on other projects that I had no interest in. So simply, the accident gave me the opportunity to do what I really wanted to do.”
