This pompous rapper has variously declared himself equal to Steve Jobs, Beethoven and God. Though reports that he also believes he’s the “next Nelson Mandela” turned out to be untrue, Atlanta born West once suggested “maybe my skin’s not right” when he was overlooked in favour of Britney Spears at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards show. West, whom has a daughter with the so-called “reality star” Kim Kardashian, has also made statements such as “I am not a fan of books”, “fashion breaks my heart” and “I still think I am the greatest”. In November 2013, it was reported that West and Kardashian were planning to build a “replica Downton Abbey” that will be the “most spectacular house ever built” in Los Angeles in honour of their fascination with “European history, the aristocracy and the British royals”. No doubt this pad will be as tacky as its inhabitants.
