Kanye West created his very own 'unauthorised' Rolling Stone cover, and the odd tagline is all anyone can talk about
Here in the CelebsNow office, we ask ourselves many philosophical questions on a regular basis. What did ‘zig-a-zig-ah’ really mean? Who DID let the dogs out?
And now we find ourselves pondering another equally complex question: Does celebsnow.co.uk/tag/kanye-west like mustard?
The reason? It’s all to do with a cover of Rolling Stone magazine featuring His Royal Yeezus.
Well, not an actual Rolling Stone cover, but one that Kanye and his mate, photographer Tyler the Creator, knocked up themselves.
Yes, we know this story is more than a little random, but stay with us…
The fake – sorry, ‘unauthorised’ (more on that in a minute) – cover shows a smiley Kanye looking off to the right, whilst the tagline simply reads: ‘KANYE… DOES HE LIKE MUSTARD?’
Well, we always had him down as a classic ketchup kind of guy when it came to condiments, but maybe he does – who knows?
Certainly not the internet, who have now taken it upon themselves to get to the bottom of this very important question in its own hilarious way…
Meanwhile, Kanye was quick to lose his temper with another magazine when they described the mocked-up cover as ‘fake’.
Writing on Twitter, Yeezy told Billboard magazine: ‘You could use the term ‘unauthorized’ but never refer to anything that me and Tyler do as fake out of respect to musicians…’
So that’s them told.
So, whilst the cover isn’t actually real – as Rolling Stone made the point of confirming by tweeting, ‘While we love Kanye, and have many mustard-related questions for him, this is not an actual cover of Rolling Stone’ – Kanye won’t rest until it becomes a reality.
Creating a Twitter poll, Kanye asked his 18.2m followers if the ‘unauthorised’ cover should be an actual cover.
So far the responses seem to suggest that his fans would indeed like to see the image become a legitimate cover. Although no-one thus far seems able to give a definitive answer on the whole ‘does Kanye like mustard’ issue.
How will we sleep tonight?
