We're pretty used to celebrities championing literacy, so it's shocking to hear Kanye West declare that he doesn't like books or reading. He did manage to overcome his dislike for books long enough to write one.
A direct quote from the article:
"I am a proud non-reader of books. I like to get information from doing stuff like actually talking to people and living real life."
