The rumor that Kanye West was going to collaborate with Ikea seemed to fade as quickly as it came. However, Kanye, not one to let go of a dream, is advocating for the once-rumored collaboration to actually happen. He spoke with BBC Radio 1 about why he thinks the collab should happen but why it probably never will.
"I visited them, and I feel like once they went to the board, people start bringing up, 'He interrupted this girl and told the truth, so he's the worst person on the planet," West told BBC 1 radio, clearly alluding to the moment he crashed the stage when Swift was accepting her VMA award. "That means I can't create with Ikea now? Because I say what everyone else is thinking. I'm literally going to be held in some sort of social prison for telling the truth, being slightly rude, or whatever."
However, Kanye still hasn't given up on the collab. "I have to work with Ikea—make furniture for interior design, for architecture," he told BBC Radio 1. "Yo, Ikea, allow Kanye to create, allow him to make this thing because you know what, I want a bed that he makes, I want a chair that he makes."
He also added that students would be in for a real treat because he described the aesthetic as "a minimalist apartment inside of a college dorm where the TV goes inside the wall."
He goes on to implore Ikea to "listen to the kids, bro." Speaking from the perspective of a potential customer, West added: "I want more product from 'Ye. We feel like there's nobody on the planet, nobody living is going hard like this, bro. There are more colors than just green in the world. There are billions of beautiful colors in the world."
Here's to hoping 'Ye can bring all his beautiful colors to Ikea still.
