Rapper Kanye West has said that he will start his own paparazzi agency so he can pick the photos. The Bound 2 star, 43, has suggested the move would help photographers who are struggling due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Speaking to Nick Cannon on his Cannon's Class podcast, the topic of paparazzi agencies came out and Kanye revealed he wants to start his own agency. Kanye revealed: "I’ll hop in the car with a paparazzi; I hire paparazzi. I know [business is] down ’cause of Covid, I am hiring. I'll buy all the paparazzi companies. I wanna pick the exact photos."
The bizarre admission came among other revelations in the interview, with Kanye also letting slip that he spent Sh5.4billion on his religious Sunday Service productions in 2019. He said: "I spent every dime that I have for marketing from Yeezy on Sunday Service.
"Every dollar I had. I spent $50 million last year on Sunday Service if you add up the operas, if you add up the flights. It was 120 people going to Jamaica.
"The Yeezys, they were selling themselves. So instead of paying for ads, I invested it in the church. I invested in spreading gospel."
The explosive interview also saw Kanye claim that God told him to invaded the stage to interrupt Taylor Swift at the infamous 2009 MTV VMAs. He told Cannon: "Right now, God is giving me the information.
"If God ain't want me to run on stage and say Beyoncé had the best video, he wouldn't have sat me in the front row. I would've been sitting in the back." The rapper then doubled down on his reason for interrupting Taylor the first time around.
He continued: "They wouldn't have made it the first award. It’s so ridiculous of an idea because, I had never heard of this person [Taylor] before, and 'Single Ladies' is, like, one of the greatest videos of all time."
The interview comes as Kanye continues with his ambitions to run for the office of President of the United States of America in 2020 against President Donald Trump and the Democrat nominee, former Vice-President Joe Biden.
Trump will be running alongside Vice-President Mike Pence, Biden alongside Senator Kamala Harris, and Kanye alongside running mate and Christian preacher Michelle Tidball.
