Kanye West checked in with his Twitter followers (@kanyewest) on Tuesday (November 9), discussing how he’s going to cut down on interviews after tiring of “using my celebrity to sell my art.” The rapper had been doing press ahead of the November 22nd release of his fifth studio album ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’. The 33-year-old writes:
I’ve decided to fall back a bit on interviews in order to “sell my album” I can’t come up with some magic trick to make people like me
I’ve made mistakes I’ve paid the price now it is what it is. I’m gone make this art but I’m not going to be scrutinized as a human being.
No more Bush questions … no more Taylor questions… no more relationship questions…. and the music is unquestionable so…..
I am a creative person…. I’m not a good celebrity but I’m a great artist… I’m tired of using my celebrity to sell my art.
