Chatter: Kanye West

"Y’know, I haven’t, like, gone to a gay bar, nor do I ever plan to. But
where I would talk to a gay person -- the conversation would be mostly
around, like, art or design -- it’d be really dope.
From a design
standpoint, kids’ll say, ‘Dude, those pants are gay.’ But if it’s,
like, good, good, good fashion-level, design-level stuff, where it’s on
a higher level than the average commercial design stuff, it’s, like,
gay people that do that. I think that should be said as a compliment.
Like, ‘Dude, that’s so good it’s almost . . . gay.’"
