Kanye West Wants You to Know He Might Join Instagram...But There’s a Catch

He doesn’t want you to tell him what to post.

Published March 14, 2016

With his wife Kim Kardashian recently accepting her late pass and joining Snapchat, it looks like the West family is finally catching up with the times.

While Kanye West’s Twitter usage has basically quadrupled since he started playing the name game regarding his new album, he's not stopping there. It looks like he might join literally everyone else with a smartphone and finally make an Instagram account.

As much as we don’t want to admit it, his Twitter use is interesting and his rants are, at times, unconventional. When utilized properly, social media is an important and interesting way to connect with fans directly, and lately, we can all agree that 'Ye has been having a little bit too much fun. But one thing he absolutely isn’t here for is people telling him what to do.

In a series of posts detailing his thoughts about joining the ever-popular crowd-favorite social media platform, he lists out one condition.

“No one can ask me or try to tell me what to Instagram… It’s my art…” he posted on Twitter today (March 14).

He also shared that he is a “Non artist trying to grab the paint brush….”

Alright, then. See you on the ‘gram, ‘Ye.
