Kanye West wants everyone to communicate with EMOJI in final interview before his ‘mental breakdown’


Kanye West despises being "viewed as an artist" and believes in the future everyone will communicate with their eyes and emoji, he told Surface magazine in his last interview before being hospitalised with a suspected mental breakdown.

During talks with the design publication, the rapper said he’d prefer to do away with words in his version of the perfect world.

"I don’t think people are going to talk in the future. They’re going to communicate through eye contact, body language, emojis, signs," he predicted.

"Imagine that. If everyone was forced to learn sign language."

He went on: "Thank God for emojis. So often one emoji goes a long way and lets me get on with my whole day."

In the interview, which was also filmed by the magazine, Kanye appeared to be hesitant and unsure when answering certain questions – but he did admit that he doesn’t tend to get across his true feelings often.

"Maybe this will be an eloquent interview. It’s a 50/50 chance every time I open my mouth. At the end of the day, words get in the way," he said.

"Sometimes I can be distracting like this in conversations. Just creating memes every step of the way."

Kanye struggled to explain what he meant at times, before revealing that he has synaesthesia – the ability to ‘see’ sound.

"When I talk it’s like a painting," he went on.

"I think it’s my mutant handicap. All X-Men have a little handicap that helps them become X-Men."

Yeezy, 39, didn’t talk much about wife Kim Kardashian – who cancelled her planned red carpet appearance last night in order to rush back to LA to see him – but did touch on his daughter, North West.

"I do want to know how my daughter’s day was. I do want to get an explanation of what she learned in school. I sincerely care about that," he said.

One of the more awkward parts of the interview was when Kanye took offence to being asked whether he views himself as an artist.

"I didn’t mention that I view myself that way. I just am," he snapped back.

"I never worded it like that. That’s really offensive. Why did you say I view myself like that? Do you not view me as an artist?"

He was only placated once the interviewer reassured him that he did view Kanye as an artist.

It comes after months of turmoil for the Kardashian-Wests – back in February 2016, Kanye went on a Twitter rant about his personal finances and claimed he was $53million in debt.

He then reignited his very public feud with Taylor Swift, started a spat with ex Amber Rose and sparked controversy by adding more dates to his Saint Pablo tour after Kim’s terrifying Paris ordeal in October – a decision that has threatened the couple’s relationship, according to insiders.
