In a crackly interview on Monday with BBC Radio 1, Kanye West revealed who he wants to collaborate with next. Move over Jay-Z, move over Rihanna, the world’s biggest rockstar, artist, or whichever latest label he’s giving himself wants to work with ready-to-assemble furniture giants IKEA.
“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” West ranted to DJ Annie Mac who, understandably, struggled to keep it together. But what if it did happen? What if Kanye started started to manufacture furniture out of ultralight beams of wood? What if he continued into other household items? What if Yeezy Yeezy Yeezy just rolled out the rug man? You can see where we’re going with this. IKEA may have rejected Kanye’s advance, but here are some items we’d love to see if they ever do come together to form the most unlikely collaboration of all time.
Wash the Throne Toilet Plunger
Kanye puts up with a lot of crap and it doesn’t end here. It’s not an elegant task, but if it has to be done, do it style.
Hold My Liquor Cup Holder
Leaving your alcohol on a side counter is over rated these days. Try the new Hold My Liquor cup holder (will also hold cups containing other liquids).
All of the Night Lights
Struggle to sleep at night? The Kanye night light should sort that. You can even alter the intensity between two settings; ‘Highlights’ and ‘Low Lights’.
Who doesn’t want to add a bit of glitz to their harvesting season? Be the envy of your neighbours and become acquainted with the dent in your bank account after splashing out on this golden spade.
Jesus Walks-in Wardrobe
Kanye needs a big wardrobe to keep all of those rejected lines of clothes but what makes this one so special? You go in feeling like the normal you and come out feeling like our lord and saviour, Kanye. It’s a kind of one dimensional Stars in your Eyes*
