Author Bret Easton Ellis has a podcast now, and his first guest, naturally, was Kanye West. The two spoke of creativity, genius, and how much those things inform their creativity and genius. But fashion also came up, and West had a message for Tony Hsieh, the CEO of online retailer Zappos, and his “shit product.”
“I got into this giant argument with the head of Zappos that he’s trying to tell me what I need to focus on. Meanwhile, he sells all this shit product to everybody, his whole thing is based off of selling shit product.”
The Vegas-based Zappos wasted no time with their own mic drop, however, and posted a link to a new product, priced at $100,000, with this item description:
“Interested in buying sh-t product? You’ve come to the right place! Here at Zappos.com, we happily sell sh-t products to everybody! This is the throne, everyone has been watching. Whether you’re #1 or #2, your clique will show no mercy, even in Paris.”
Oh, snap! There’s even a video.
C’mon, Kanye. Zappos makes perfectly comfortable shoes for a god.
