Kanye West Says He's Writing a "Book" in Real Time via Twitter
These aren't your typical Kanye West tweets.
A day after the “Stronger” rapper suddenly popped back up on the social media site, throwing out a ton of life advice and photos of neck tattoo designs, West revealed that his latest tweets are actually for a book that he’s writing in real time.
“Oh by the way this is my book that I'm writing in real time,” the music star tweeted. “No publisher or publicist will tell me what to put where or how many pages to write. This is not a financial opportunity this is an innate need to be expressive.”
“I will work on this "book" when I feel it,” he continued. “When We sit still in the mornings We get hit with so many ideas and so many things We want to express. When I read this tweet to myself I didn't like how much I used the word I so I changed the I's to We's.”
Although Kim Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen couldn’t resist trolling West Tuesday when he returned to Twitter, Kendall Jenner showed full support of her brother-in-law by retweeting a couple of his words to live by Wednesday.
“Let's be less concerned with ownership of ideas,” West wrote, and Jenner retweeted. “It is important that ideas see the light of day even if you don't get the credit for them. Let's be less concerned with credit awards and external validation.”
The model was also gave him props on another one of his pieces of life advice, writing “Yup!” in response to a tweet that said, “Be here now. Be in the moment. The now is the greatest moment of our lives and it just keeps getting better. The bad parts the boring parts the parts with high anxiety. Embrace every moment for its greatness. This is life. This is the greatest movie we will ever see.”
West first mentioned that he’s writing a book called Break the Simulation while interviewing his interior designer Axel Vervoordt for The Hollywood Reporter, and he said then that it would delve into various concepts of time.
"I do believe that all time is now," West said during the interview. "The future is here now, the past is here now. There's certain people that you meet and you say, ‘Oh, you're from the future.' You feel this in their spirit, people who are just staying in a time where the time doesn't celebrate who they are, and there's other people right now who the time does celebrate, and those people end up more famous or notorious. But I'm big on connecting with timeless energy, with people and musicians that I'm around."
