Kanye West: 'The Bible Is Better Than Pinterest'
Kanye West told Forbes that the Bible is better than Pinterest and serves as an inspiration for him during a video interview posted Tuesday morning.
"I'll be working on home designs and looking at references from 3,000 years ago and reading the Old Testament at the same time," West says. "So it's like a soundtrack to the visuals of the shapes and the ideas and ideals of what we're creating. A lot of my creative friends, I tell them like the Bible is better than Pinterest. You can bring something into space and time we exist in while reflecting thousands of years of truth."
Then West began reading Leviticus 19:19 for the interviewer.
West says, "[It] says 'You should keep my statutes. You should not let your cattle breed with a different kind. You shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor shall you wear a garment of cloth made of two kinds of material.' I tell my apparel team that the clothes that we're using [are] a single material. I remember sending a manager I used to work with a really rude email about how every time he wore this wool jacket with leather sleeves, he set culture back by 10 years. So now I can send him the verse from the Bible that says 'You should not wear a garment of cloth made of two kinds of materials.'"
