Global music star Kanye West now known as “Ye” revealed in a recent podcast that he has never read a book, despite having in his arsenal of accolades establishing a private school called the Donda Academy.
Ye appeared on the Alo Mind Full podcast with host Alyson Wilson and Alo Yoga founder Danny Harris who talked about a book he’d read over 100 times based on self-confidence that Ye hadn’t read. It was here that he made his feelings on reading clear “also when you said I hadn’t read this book, I actually haven’t read any book” and compared reading to eating Brussel Sprouts for him and instead prefered talking which he called “getting the Giorgio Baldi Corn Ravioli”, which must be some pretty impressive pasta.
Reading is a powerful learning tool and a brilliant way to spend your free time. So is it just that Ye hasn’t yet found the right book? We can recommend a few that might take his fancy.
