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 I am frustrated 'cause I made a film and nobody liked it," he said.

Among West's other memorable quotes from the discussion are:

"If I like it, I like it. No one can tell me who I like or what I'm supposed to be."

"Contrary to popular belief, I'm not in touch with my femininity."

"Good taste is a gift, bad taste is a privilege."
