KANYE CREATES CONTROVERSY BY NAMING HIS NEW ALBUM “I AM GOD.” By Mary Jane Collins
NEW YORK – There’s no artist quite as eccentric as rapper Kanye West and he’s about to prove it with his next album title “I Am God.”
A source close to the rapper said: “Kanye’s ego is something else, so he’s quite serious about the title.” As if he isn’t stirring the pot enough, Kanye has reportedly chosen ‘North’ as his favorite name for the baby he’s expecting in July with reality TV vixen Kim Kardashian. Kanye, 35, came up with a list of potential baby names. But ‘North’ remains at the top of his list because, in his opinion, it sounds compatible with his surname. Think about it – North West.
He presented the moniker to friends last month while working in Paris during fashion week. But it’s unlikely the name will sit well with Kim whose family tradition includes first names beginning with the letter “K.” According to one of Kanye’s pals, the name selection shouldn’t be taken too seriously.
“He has a sense of humor and knows how his self-indulgence is seen by the general public. It’s half tongue-in-cheek, half what Kanye probably feels is true,” said the friend.
Let’s hope Kanye doesn’t get his wish.
