Kanye West, celebrity and well-known rapper, seems to be pretty outspoken about his life and thoughts behind many topics. We all know that Kanye can be loud about his opinions and even considered crazy from day to day actions, but there are still many other things he keeps hidden behind closed doors about his past and present life.
Even his biggest fans and followers probably don’t know everything to do with the rapper’s life and behaviors, but there are some that have been uncovered to show to those interested.
Here are some crazy facts about Kanye West to give you some insight into his secret life and what has been covered up over the years.
Living In China
At around the age of 10, Kanye actually lived in China with his mother who had split from his father. West’s mother, Donda, was an English professor who moved to China for a year to visit another professor. According to accounts from Kanye and his family, he even picked up Chinese well and fast during their stay. But like many of us lose our learning or memories easily Kanye’s learning of the Chinese language has faded greatly over time.
We know that many celebrities can get tired of or incredibly irritated by paparazzi due to their invasiveness and timing. Kanye has taken that to a whole new level in his complete hatred for them. He has been photographed wrestling photo takers to the ground and even had assault and battery charges against him for instances like these, not to mention openly saying to a reporter that he hates paparazzi “more than Nazis” which was quickly avoided by his lawyer when asked.
Before finding fame and rapping, Kanye West had a number of jobs including working in insurance sales and as a telemarketer. He tells reporters when talking about it that he was very good at the job and used to do other things while on a call or making a telemarketing sale because of how accustomed to the process he was. Guess in another life the man could’ve made a pretty good salesman.
Kanye’s first album, The College Drop-Out, found its success in the industry early on. Soon after this album succeeded Kanye made his first major purchase with the money from his fame, which turned out to be an 18th century styled aquarium that held 30 koi fish along with marble and gold décor. Nobody’s really sure why that was his first choice, but that’s what the rapper chose to do with his first chunk of success.
Feuding With Swift
Since that time at an awards show in 2009 when Kanye interrupted Taylor Swift’s speech upon receiving an award to say Beyonce deserved it more, the two have been back and forth with disagreements and rudeness (usually with Kanye being the perpetrator in the situation). He since made a misogynistic and rude comment in one of his recent songs claiming he was Taylor’s reason for fame, which sparked anger from both sides’ fans and fueled the fire more.
Even with millions of fans, it appears some celebrities are able to keep a handful of things mostly hidden for some time. It takes a lot to be able to keep these facts away from the public eye, so knowing them can give fans or any audience something to think about such as why he keeps these specific things more hidden or what other pieces of Kanye’s life could be partial truths.
Whether you’re reading for fun or as a fan trying to learn more, hopefully, this list will give you some good knowledge of what goes on in Kanye West’s life that can be hidden or lesser-known by the public and his followers.
