Kanye West Covers ''Liberation Next'' Magazine + Named New "King of Pop"
Kanye West recently stripped down for the latest magazine cover for the French magazine ''Liberation Next''. "New King Of Pop" is what the titled of the magazine says in French! He talked about the recently deceased Michael Jackson as well as his own impact on music.
A spokesperson for the magazine wrote:
''For this special issue of how human we met Kanye West, producer, musician, singer and now fashion icon. The man is a bit megalomaniac, but he has style, his latest album – which we never tire – is the best proof. Obsessed with control of himself, his music, his looks.
Kanye West built before our eyes an ambivalent public figure capable of bringing together the paradoxes of the times: it suffices to note how the rapper, capable of melancholy , clothe his body tattooed bodybuilder and as elegantly as possible. Two months after the death of Michael Jackson, he is one of the few – the only one? – Be entitled to recover the crown of the reclusive Neverland, asleep forever beneath the sleeping pills.''
