Kanye West: I defy Categorization and I am Similar to Leonardo da Vinci

As he prepares to headline at Glastonbury festival, singer Kanye West has compared himself to some of the Renaissance masters like Leonardo da Vinci. Media have reported in the past that West, also known as Yeezy, has been known to liken himself to Steve Jobs, Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso, William Shakespeare and even Jesus Christ. Not very modest, is it? In any case, he said that what makes him similar to these people is defying convention. What he referred to was his attempt not to be boxed into any genre on the scene today.

Resisting strict categorization is what makes him similar to people like Galileo, da Vinci and Michelangelo, claims West. “Imagine if da Vinci or Michelangelo or Galileo were asked not to think of anything except for the one thing they first became famous for. So da Vinci could only have one idea. For all haters, I’m not saying I’m da Vinci, but I feel it’s right for any human being to compare themselves to anything,” told West to the Sunday Times Culture magazine.

It is worth mentioning that Kanye West is worth USD 30 million and is not only a singer, but also a fashion designer and has a reputation of being among the most divisive stars in the United States. His upcoming appearance on Glastonbury has encountered a vast number of critics many of which have signed a petition saying they do not want to see him perform at the festival. They claim his music is an “injustice.”
