Kanye West Goes Head To Head With Zappos CEO

KanyeWestKanye West has slammed the CEO of online retailer Zappos, saying he has some nerve trying to give him fashion advice.

Speaking in a podcast with Bret Easton Ellis, Kanye launched into an angry tirade about Zappos head Tony Hsieh, who he met with during a recent trip to Las Vegas to discuss a potential collaboration.

“I got into this giant argument with the head of Zappos that he’s trying to tell me what I need to focus on. Meanwhile, he sells all this s**t product to everybody, his whole thing is based off of selling s**t product,” said Ye.

This follows the rapper’s rant against Louis Vuitton, despite having designed a sneaker collection for the high-end brand in the past and referring to himself as the “Louis Vuitton Don.”

However, Kanye – who has since approached popular store Gap for a more purse-friendly collaboration, but “couldn’t get past the politics”. Speaking of politics. President Obama weighed in on the rapper not too long ago as well!

Sigh…fashion mayhem, the saga continues. Kanye against the world? Now, that should be a song.

Below is Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh’s response to Kanye. The retail giant created a page just for Kanye showing these product with a cool price tag.
