A book a day keeps you away.
Eccentric rapper and former Pete Davidson love rival Kanye West admits he’s never read a book and compares literature to gross green vegetables.
Yeezy’s comments came on Friday on an episode of the “Alo Mind Full” podcast, just a day after Rolling Stone reported that parents must sign non-disclosure agreements to take their children to West’s non-accredited $15,000-a-year Donda Academy outside send from Los Angeles.
“I haven’t actually read a book,” West told hosts Danny Harris and Alyson Wilson.
“For me, reading is like eating Brussels sprouts. And speeches is like corn ravioli by Giorgio Baldi.”
The “College Dropout” artist continued, expressing that he also has a Will Smith-like fear about the future of technology.
“I tend to be just paranoid about robots sometimes, but that’s how we have to exist,” said West, who produced “Stronger,” using samples from famed robot-mimicking DJ duo Daft Punk.
“I mean, Star Wars is my college. I got a lot more hours on ‘Star Wars’ than I did in college,” West added, saying he predicts our future will resemble George Lucas’ universe long ago in a galaxy far, far away.
More of a headache than his comment is the designer’s exclusive Christian Simi Valley high school through 12th grade academy named after his late mother, author, and professor — one that included uniforms from his now-defunct Gap deal.
Parkour is listed as part of the daily curriculum for the nearly 100 students, and Rolling Stone reported that the principal and executive director, 28-year-old Brianne Campbell, has never officially held a position in the education system.
According to Donda Academy’s website, it aims to “infuse youth with the passion, purpose and spiritual foundations they need to thrive in tomorrow’s world.”
