Kanye West: ‘David Bowie’s torch has been passed to me’
Nothing says rebellion like copying someone else.
Even better than that, Kanye is the subject of a ‘source’ who suggests West sees Bowie as a kind of Dr Who figure, an entertainer to be regenerated in any form you like. “He is determined to carry on David’s work as a musical innovator,” says this source. “He says that the torch has been passed to him.”
The one difference is that Bowie would have seen that torch and grasped hold of the hot end.
