Inside Kanye West’s Kanye-Themed Birthday Party

Everyone in the world (or I guess everyone who keeps up with pop culture in the slightest) has heard the saying, “I love you like Kanye loves Kanye.” It’s sort of an inside joke the whole world is in on, a joking nod toward celebrity narcissism and West’s inflated ego. And for his 41st birthday, it looks like he’s running with the joke: welcome to Kanye West’s Kanye-themed party.

How does one throw a birthday completely around oneself? Well, if you want to be classy about it, you’ve got to keep it simple. Kanye didn’t need any extraneous decorations or ridiculous posters ruining the vibe. Instead, the rapper kept it sweet and simple, and let the food do all the talking.

First of all, let’s talk about his cake, which is obviously modeled after the album cover of his new EP, YE. I’m not too surprised about this one, since he’s modeled several of his birthday cakes in the past off of albums he’s created.

But if you think the cake is a little extra, wait till you see the Kanye cookies, each with different expressions. (Side note: Can you imagine eating a cookie of yourself? I can only imagine how wrong that would feel.)

And last but not least: Kanye lattes. (Kanyattes? Lattyes? Kanlattes?)

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.
