Rapper, songwriter, record producer, fashion designer and entrepreneur, Kanye West, has announced he now wants to extend his creative talents to interior design, announcing he wants to work with Ikea on a new range of furniture.
Speaking to BBC Radio 1 on August 1, the "Famous" singer, 39, explained, “I have to work with IKEA - make furniture for interior design, for architecture and I know that if I do a minimalist apartment inside of a college dorm where the TV goes on the side of the wall.”
He then went on to plead directly with the Swedish flat-pack furniture manufacturer, saying: "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, who is married to Kim Kardashian, was pictured visiting the company’s head office in Almhult, Sweden, earlier this year.
He has previously collaborated with British fashion designer Katie Eary, who has created a series of textiles and tableware for Ikea.
During the interview, the father-of-two also discussed his political ambitions, after previously declaring he planned to run for president in 2020.
"When I talk about the idea of being president, I'm not saying I have any political views," he said. "I just have a view on humanity, on people, on the truth.
"If there is anything that I can do with my time and my day, to somehow make a difference while I'm alive I'm going to try to do it."
