Kanye West has said that he feels disgusted by literature, and he likened reading books to eating vegetables, which is a common sentiment among young children.
The outspoken rapper revealed to Alo’s Danny Harris and Alyson Wilson in a new edition of the “Alo Mind Full” podcast that aired on Friday that he has never studied any literature, and that he enjoys speaking instead. The program was released on Friday.
“I actually haven’t read any book,” West said. “Reading is like eating Brussels sprouts for me. And talking is like getting the Giorgio Baldi corn ravioli.”
Following a story in Rolling Stone that parents were made to sign nondisclosure agreements in order for their children to attend the tuition-based Christian private school owned by the performer, he has now come forth with his admission. Donda West, who had a career in education before she passed away, inspired the naming of this institution, which is now known as Donda Academy.
According to Rolling Stone, the educational institution has not yet been granted accreditation.
According to the information provided on the school’s website, students at the academy located in Simi Valley, California, take part in activities such as “full school worship,” fundamental classes such as language arts, mathematics, and science, as well as lunch, recess, and enrichment classes such as visual art, film, choir, and “parkour”.
“Using an ethic of integrity and care, Donda Academy prepares students to become the next generation of leaders, thinkers and innovators by providing them with a world-class education that includes a rigorous core curriculum, and an emphasis on sustainability, creativity, critical thinking and problem solving,” a “Who We Are” section of the Donda Academy website reads.
