Kanye West is a man known for his interviews, but of all the people or characters to compare himself to in an interview, his latest for W Magazine might be his most interesting. Talking about wanting to bring joy to people with his art, he says, “Another parallel, Elf… I’m the elf that’s Will Ferrell, that’s too big for his hands to make the toy. But he wants to make the toys, why? Not just so he can play with them, but he wants to bring joy to the world.”

He also spoke about how he loves music videos, but doesn’t really enjoy being in them anymore, saying, “The opportunity to put moving art against the music was one of the best parts about being a professional recording artist… I’m tired of making videos now, I barely wanna stand in front of the camera at all.”
