“I think business has to be stupider,” said the artist, fashion designer and father. “I want to do really straightforward, stupid business — just talk to me like a 4-year-old. And I refuse to negotiate. I do not negotiate. I can collaborate. But I’m an artist, so as soon as you negotiate, you’re being compromised.”

Ironically the Yeezy CEO, who is famous for his rants, also said he would rather use wordless communication, believing the future is in emojis and sign language.

“I don’t think people are going to talk in the future. They’re going to communicate through eye contact, body language, emojis, signs. Imagine that. If everyone was forced to learn sign language….I would prefer to do that without having to use words. It’s funny because I’ve made a living off of words, but words get in the way of what you really want to say.”

The 39-year-old cover star of the design publication also revealed he doesn’t "want to be a jerk,” but would rather people didn’t engage in chit-chat with him.

“I can’t stand this whole 'How was your day?' thing that agents always say,” he said. “I’m like, “You don’t care about my day. Why’d you ask me about my day? Did we get done what we were supposed to get done?”

In addition to revealing his plan to “save the world” and better education, West touched on more colorful topics such as X-Men, role-playing games and Wiz Khalifa’s “cool pants.”

But an interview with West wouldn't be the same without it getting heated.
