Oh, how the plot thickens....
During a new radio interview with Big Boy
on Real 92.3
on Thursday, Kanye West
revealed a key detail about that Internet-breaking selfie
between his wife, Kim Kardashian, and his ex, Amber Rose
-- it was taken in Kris Jenner
"That is a real picture," he confirmed of the photo, which was taken after the rapper's highly publicized tweetstorm
at Wiz Khalifa
prompted Amber's NSFW response
. "They were at Kris' house."
You can listen to Kanye's interview below, the selfie talk starts at about 7:30.
Kanye, who deleted most of his inflammatory tweets and promised to "never speak on kids again
," clarified during the interview that he "didn't mean it in a harmful way."
"I don't wanna act like I'm the toughest n***a and sh*t," West explained. "I'm a family man."
Most importantly, after Ye's phone call with Wiz, the rapper says the beef is totally squashed
"It was great to have closure," Kanye said of putting the whole situation behind him. "To just talk and build."
Side note: In case you were following this smaller dilemma, Kanye did address Drake calling out the size of his pool
in a recent song, saying simply: "I have three pools."
Glad we have that cleared up!
In the meantime, Kanye's newest record -- which he says in the interview is a "gospel album with a lot of cursing on it" -- does NOT have a confirmed title yet (what happened to Waves
??), and is set to premiere during Yeezy Season 3 at Madison Square Garden on Feb. 11. Kanye posted tickets to the event on Twitter, and then celebrated ten minutes later, writing, "THANK YOU SO MUCH GUYS WE SOLD MADISON SQUARE GARDEN OUT IN 10 MINUTES!!!"
If you didn't get tickets, there's a small chance more will become available, as Kanye followed up by saying: "I held a few seats for stage design that may open up depending on Vanessa’s final layout."
The promotion for the upcoming album has been, if a little all over the place, undeniably entertaining. On Feb. 2, Kanye couched his previous claims that we should be expecting the "best album of all time," clarifying, "This new album is ONE of the greatest albums not the greatest just one of."
The following day, Kanye tweeted an "unauthorized" Rolling Stone cover, which was shot by Tyler the Creator, and featured the caption: "Kanye: Does He Like Mustard?"
It came to light that the rapper was, as he put it, "#trollingstone," when afterward, the publication tweeted: "While we love Kanye, and have many mustard-related questions for him, this is not an actual cover of Rolling Stone."
Every moment of this has been beautiful.
