Kanye West Says He Wants to Kill Himself When He Sees His Old Outfits

Turns out you're not the only one who's embarrassed by your old outfits. Kanye West admitted to New York Times' Jon Caramanica that he's not so thrilled by his own sartorial past either. Caramanica: You look at your outfits from five or seven years ago, and it’s like — West: Yeah, kill self. That’s all I have to say. Kill self. Hmm... could this be why West demanded Getty remove all those images of him wearing a kilt?

Turns out you're not the only one who's embarrassed by your old outfits. Kanye West admitted to New York Times' Jon Caramanica that he's not so thrilled by his own sartorial past either.

Caramanica: You look at your outfits from five or seven years ago, and it’s like —

West: Yeah, kill self. That’s all I have to say. Kill self.

After all, according to the interview, the kilt-caused sensitivity was a big reason why Yeezy wanted Jay-Z to go on tour with him for Watch the Throne.

Caramanica: Part of it was you wanting to have someone standing next to you and say, “He’s cool. Ye’s cool.”

West: Yeah, even with the kilt on.

What we're learning here is that Yeezus is actually a really sensitive soul. Speaking about the time he made Kim Kardashian clean out her closet on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, West said, "That was from a place of love. It’s hard when people read things in a lot of different ways."

"You know, the amount of backlash I got from it is when I decided to not be on the show anymore," he continued. "And it’s not that I have an issue with the show; I just have an issue with the amount of backlash that I get. Because I just see like, an amazing person that I’m in love with that I want to help."

So it looks like we should really give up all hope of a spinoff Keeping Up with the West-Kardashians, featuring Kimye and their new babe, ever happening.

Don't worry though, all this earnest talk about love and embarrassment, doesn't mean West has lost his edge. Asked if his ego ever lead him astray, like say, when he infamously interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech, West said: "It’s only led me to complete awesomeness at all times. It’s only led me to awesome truth and awesomeness. Beauty, truth, awesomeness. That’s all it is."

Well, we'd expect no less from the guy who has a song called "I Am God" coming out soon.
