We are so used to hearing Kanye West talk about Kanye West that we just kind of assume that any quote about him comes straight from the horse’s mouth, but as it happens Queen of Pop, Madonna, has also been nattering about him an awful lot lately….
…And boy has she had some weird things to say.
After dubbing the rapper “a beautiful mess”, Madge has come forward to say that Yeezy is actually the black version of… Herself.
Speaking to the Daily News, the 56-year-old shared: “Kanye is the new Madonna. Kanye is the black Madonna.”
But what happened to the current Madonna, eh? We didn’t know that we needed a new one.
The star continued: “We’re comrades in the envelope-pushing genre. I always feel like I’m breaking some taboo, or coming up against something.
“People have always judged me, and given me sh*t about one thing or another.”
Ah, they really are kindred spirits, aren’t they?
The pair’s bizarre friendship seems to have started when Kanye shared his talent with the singer and produced songs on her forthcoming album, “Rebel Heart”, although Madge isn’t afraid to be honest about her new pal.
Earlier this month, the singer told Rolling Stone that Kanye “takes things too seriously” when it came to awards shows, referencing Kan interrupting Beck’s acceptance speech at this year’s Grammys, but she still insisted that she ruddy loved him.
Madonna explained: “I don’t always agree with the things he says or does – I don’t always like his music, even.
“But he’s a beautiful mess. I love him.”
We wonder if the feeling is mutual?
