Kanye West interviews are always provocative. West recently had a Twitter feud with late night talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel. West and Kimmel attempted to have a meeting of the minds Wednesday night on Kimmel’s show. Yeezy had several quoatables during the interview that ended up taking over the show. But one of the more interesting moments was when Ye listed out who he looked up to, some of the names he mentioned Steve Jobs, Michelangelo, Jesus Christ and NBA Commissioner David Stern.

You know, I can actually understand his admiration for Stern. He came in when the league wasn’t that popular and smartly jumped on the Magic-Bird rivalry, rode the Jordan train, through now. Expanded the game globally and emphasized marketing. Ye also said people can’t handle his genius,

“If I was to say that I wasn’t a genius, I’d be lying to you and myself”

Me too Yeezy…
