Kanye latest to pose as Jesus
Following in the footsteps of 2Pac, Puff Daddy and Nas, Kanye West portrays himself as Jesus Christ for the latest issue of Rolling Stone. West appears on the cover of the magazine wearing a crown of thorns. Probably more appropriately, Kanye poses as Muhammad Ali inside, echoing 'the greatest' when he says, "In America, they want you to accomplish these great feats, to pull off these David Copperfield-type stunts. You want me to be great, but you don't ever want me to say I'm great?" Never hesitant to stir up controversy, West also takes the Grammys to task for not even nominating "Gold Digger" for Best Rap Song: "That's a gimme Grammy." Kanye also declares his passion for porn, saying that he first saw a Playboy magazine when he was 5 and has been addicted ever since. "Right then it was like, 'Houston, we have a problem.'"
