Kanye West

Kanye West is speaking out once again, and like always it's something we're going to raise our eyebrows too. 

The rapper is taking credit for inventing leather jogging pants. 

Kanye thinks he is ahead of time when it comes to fashion, claiming he originally invented the design and brought it to luxury fashion house Fendi years before it became a popular trend.

He said: "Whether I'm at a dinner with Anna Wintour, [editor-in-chief of US Vogue magazine] or a listening party with Pusha-T or in Rome with Virgil [Abloh, West's creative director], giving Fendi our designs and getting them knocked down ... [We] brought the leather jogging pants six years ago to Fendi, and they said no.

"How many motherf***ers you done seen with a leather jogging pant?"

Kanye also thinks Saint Laurent's creative director Hedi Slimane has some "nice s**t", but can't compare to the trend-setting power of rappers, who are the "biggests rock stars."

The budding fashion designer told BBC Radio 1: "So when I see Hedi Slimane, and it's like, 'OK, this is my take on the world,' yeah, he's got some nice $5,000 jeans in there, it's some nice ones here and there, some good shit here and there, but we are culture.

"Rap is the new rock and roll. We are culture. Rap is the new rock and roll. We are the rock stars. It's been like that for a minute, Hedi Slimane. It's been like that for a minute. We the biggest rock stars, and I'm the biggest of all of them."
