IKEA Doesn’t Want To Work With Kanye West

During an interview with BBC Radio 1 yesterday, Kanye West confessed that he’d like to add “furniture design” to the Shit Kanye Thinks Kanye Can Do section of his LinkedIn profile. Specifically, Kanye wants to design furniture for the mecca of cheap chairs and frozen meatballs, IKEA. Kanye said his dream is to make “a minimalist apartment inside a college dorm.” In case Kanye wasn’t clear enough about how much he wants this, he begged them in the third person.

“Yo IKEA, allow Kanye to create, allow him to make this thing because you know what, I want a bed that he makes, I want a chair that he makes. I want more products from Ye.”

Kanye is serious about his love for IKEA. Earlier this year, Kanye made a visit to IKEA head office in Sweden and tweeted about how much he wants to create some KONYE crap for them. The only problem is, IKEA isn’t feeling it right now.

Shortly after Kanye batted his eyelashes at IKEA, a spokesperson politely turned down his offer in a statement to CNBC.

“Although we are really flattered by Kanye West’s high interest in IKEA and the speculation around a joint venture, we have no plans to collaborate at this point in time.”

Obviously a collaboration between Kanye and IKEA would be a major disaster. First of all, if Kanye charges $1600 for a sweater that comes pre-destroyed and full of holes, I can’t imagine what he’d charge for a build-it-yourself shelf. Not to mention that even if he keeps it IKEA cheap, there’s no way you’d ever get that shelf built. The instructions would be 18 pages of an all-caps rant about creation in Kanye’s busted attempt at Swedish. And the only picture inside would be of the confused IKEA guy.

Here’s Kim Kardashian, a person who would never ever step foot in an IKEA unless it was to ask for directions to the nearest Fendi Casa showroom, at one of Kylie’s 19th birthday parties last night.

  1. I’m with you and am reshaping my whole body. I hate doing squats and lunges, but there is no arguing with the results.

    I say NO to ikea. Anyone likes to be manipulated with mendacious slogans and empty ideas used by a company which is in fact the king of hypocrisy.

    1. “To create a better everyday life for the many people”. The residents of settlements in the centre of Poland complain about the noise nuisance caused by ikea’s enginery since 3 years. Its factory was developed in 2013 but ikea forgot to set up an appropriate noise-protection. Consequently even with tightly closed windows and roller shutters, even with the radio on, we still hear the activity of factory during the whole night.

    2. “Company Social Responsibility”. Ikea doesnt respect lokal community and doesn’t minimalize its falloff of our every-day-live conditions although we’ve been asking ikea’s management for help since 3 years. What’s more the residents are banned of ikea fan page on Facebook. May of our complains have been deleted in order to maintain an impeccable image of the company.

    3. “People&Planet Positive”. Was it responsible do develope the factory without even thinking its influence on the environment about and without constructing an appropriate noise-protetcion? The Regional Environment Agency has been involved in solving of our problem.

    Well known is also the issue of avoiding taxes in many UE countries. That’s the reason why I’ find all of ikea’s ideas empty. The seems to be created and used by company only as a marketing policy in order to gain more unaware customers.

    That’s Kwazy.

  4. It really was tremendously written! Absolutely outstanding…I particularly liked the line, “Shit Kanye Thinks Kanye Can Do”. Fantastic!

  5. And that being said; a question: Has he actually created a plain, white T-shirt that is being sold for 80 bucks or so? I don’t know why I have that in my head; it seems to me that I’ve read that recently. If so, the idiots who’ve bought this plain, white, 80 dollar T-shirt are absolute nitwits.

  6. “Shit Kanye Thinks Kanye Can Do” and THAT is why I keep coming back to Dlisted! Brilliant!

  7. I think he’s running out of money. He hurt his reputation and bank balance when he joined that koven.

  8. Isn’t that what his company, Donda, no excuse me, DONDA is?

  9. Why doesn’t he furnish his whole house in his Ikea prototype furnishings? He’s so talentless that he is living in an empty house because he has no idea how to decorate and won’t turn it over to professionals.

  10. You can be fucked by Ye any day of the week if you buy one of his $1,000 holey T shirts!

  11. Meandering with Kanye

  12. Yeah–scaly, dry, and red.

  13. Bridge Burner

    That’s what the blind items are saying.

  14. Bridge Burner

    Blind items for the most part.

  15. Damn it Allison, I spit out my berry smoothie when I read, “…to create some KØNYË crap for them”.

  16. Kwzactly

  17. You can include it in your online IKEA order 🙂

  18. Yes, she’s a regular Kate Middleton.

  19. sideof Sour Cream

    I know! Had the TV on in the background and one of those drug commercials came on and one of the side effects was weight loss and so naturally I started paying attention!
    Turned out to be psoriasis med., which I don’t need–bummer 🙂 If I were her I would take it–for the weight loss alone, lol.

  20. Of the personality

  21. Ikea needs Kayne like it needs more kids being crushed by their furniture.

  22. The instructions for Kanye designed IKEA furniture would be so overly complicated we would all end up throwing one of his epic rants trying to put that ish together. The instructions are difficult enough on their own, thank you very much!

  23. It’s physically impossible for a K-whore to keep her legs together. They’re practically in different time zones
