5 Crazy Takeaways From Kanye West's Latest Interview

As Kanye West continues to make his rounds promoting his latest album "Yeezus," we continue to get even more great Kanye-isms on life, love and power.

The rapper's latest interview comes from W magazine where he opens up about his music, his intellect, his religion, his fashion, and of course, his baby mama Kim Kardashian.

Here are five things to take away from Kanye's interesting interview:

1. Kanye is not humble

"Nobody can tell me where I can and can’t go. Man, I’m the No. 1 living and breathing rock star. I am Axl Rose; I am Jim Morrison; I am Jimi Hendrix," he says at one point."

Of his song "I Am a God," he adds "'I made that song because I am a god. I don’t think there’s much more explanation. I’m not going to sit here and defend s**t. That s**t is rock ’n’ roll, man. That s**t is rap music. I am a god."

2. Christianity is like shopping at Ralph Lauren 

"I’m Christian in the same way that people have issues with certain elements of Christianity," he says. "It’s like if you go into a Ralph Lauren store, maybe that buyer didn’t do the exact buy that you want, but you still really like that brand.”

3. Kanye's trying to tone down the Kanye in his fashion collection 

“The first collection was way better than the second. It was more artful. It was 30 collections in one. It just takes time for me to slow down and think like a normal person... I tried to come out of the gate going crazy. And it didn’t work. So now I have to somehow put out something that says, ‘I look sensible!’ ” 

4. Kanye is partially responsible for Kim Kardashian's terrible wardrobe choices lately:

 "For her to take that risk in front of the world, it just shows you how much she loves me. And how much she actually loves the opportunity to learn," says Kanye. "You got, like, a million companies saying, ‘This is impacting your brand! This is impacting your fans! And blah blah blah.’ But she still sees this light of beauty."

5. Kanye doesn't appreciate generic compliments ... especially when they're from Kris Jenner.

During the interview, West played the "momager" his unfinished song "Awesome" -- which is reportedly about Kim. Kris told the rapper "great job" and here's what Kanye said in response:

"Great job?” he says. Adding with a comic toast, "Great job, Baccarat, for making a glass that can hold liquid! Great job, belt loops, for keeping my pants up!”

And a few bonus bites:

-Kanye is obsessed with "porn"
-He loved Kim's nude W Magazine cover --  saying he was happy "that it disturbed people."
-He appears on "Keeping Up for the Kardashians" "all for love." How sweet, right?

Keep up the good work Kanye -- we can't wait to see what pure genius comes out of your next interview.
