Kanye West Rants That He’s The Next Ralph Lauren: ‘Famous And Frustrated Is The Most Irritating F**king Thing’

Kanye West participated in a panel discussion with Swiss-born architect Jacques Herzog on Wednesday during Art Basel Miami and didn’t disappoint by spewing out more than a few shocking and controversial quotes.

During the hour-long chat, West hinted that he’s the next Ralph Lauren, saying “there’s a new frontier” and bragged about being in art school.

West, 36, also complained about being famous — again.

Famous and frustrated is the most irritating f**king thing…like I am frustrated ’cause I made a film and nobody liked it,” he said.

“Contrary to popular belief, I’m not in touch with my femininity.”

“Good taste is a gift, bad taste is a privilege.”
