Kanye West is writing philosophy book and calls wife Kim Kardashian the ‘Marie Antoinette of our time’

Kanye West has likened his wife Kim Kardashian to the last queen of France.

The 40-year-old rapper  interviewed his design collaborator Axel Vervoordt in a new feature for The Hollywood Reporter in which he revealed that he is writing a philosophy book.

The project is to be titled Break The Simulation as the All Of The Lights hitmaker revealed that his 37-year-old reality star wife is the ‘Marie Antoinette of our time.’

He said:  ‘I’ve got this philosophy — or let’s say it’s just a concept, because sometimes philosophy sounds too heavy-handed.

‘I’ve got a concept about photographs, and I’m on the fence about photographs — about human beings being obsessed with photographs — because it takes you out of the now and transports you into the past or transports you into the future.’

Kanye obviously has high praise for Kim as he said: ‘Even with my wife, I see her as a representation, as a Marie Antoinette of our time. 

‘So with your mentality with spaces, I believe that what we’ve been working on will represent humanity for the next 500 to 1,000 years.’

Marie Antoinette was the last queen of France before the French Revolution. She is known for being a historical figure linked with fashion, wealth, the Catholic Church, and conservatism.

She was born in 1755 in Austria and died in 1793 in France.

Kanye has been busy as he reactivated his Twitter account on Friday, appearing on the platform for the first time in nearly a year after he deactivated it last May.

The Grammy Award-winning artist was gradually removing tweets from the site – as of late Friday evening, only one tweet remained on his central timeline: a tweet from CEO Jack Dorsey Friday reading, ‘Welcome back @kanyewest!’

The head-scratching comeback to the forum mirrored the Famous singer’s brief Valentine’s Day comeback to Instagram, in which he shared shots of dozens of famous pairings in a tribute to his own starry marriage to wife Kim Kardashian.

Among the tandems Kanye shared included iconic duos like political pairings such as President Barack Obama and wife Michelle, and President John F. Kennedy and Jackie Onassis; musical couples such as David Bowie and Iman, and Jennifer Lopez and Diddy; and a former high-profile couple in Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

The father-of-three – four-year-old daughter North, two-year-old son Saint, and two-month-old baby daughter Chicago – also posted a homemade card he made for Kim that read, ‘Happy Valentine’s Day Babe.’

The romantic return wasn’t the start of something new, however, as Kanye deactivated his Instagram less than a day after reviving the dormant account, which boasted more than 2.5 million followers.

The enigmatic performer was making headlines Friday after dubbing Kim as ‘as a Marie Antoinette of our time’ in a chat with The Hollywood Reporter with acclaimed designer Axel Vervoordt.

‘A designer told me that my wife was a master of light and I was a master of time,’ the Runaway artist said. ‘How to use time is equal to being someone who can cut a diamond.

‘The ability to preserve time is more valuable than the ability to preserve a diamond because time is our most valuable resource.’
