Kanye West wants to become the next President of the United States but hates politics (surprise!), he revealed in an interview with Vanity Fair. From the same interview, we learn that Yeezy Season 3 is already in development, even though he just showed Season 2 at New York Fashion Week. Busy as he is, Kanye has plans on how to divide his time between fashion design, family, music and his presidential candidacy.

It's a lot to take in, so here are things you need to keep in mind about the rapper, leading up to 2020.

1. Kanye hates politics.
"I hate politics. I'm not a politician at all. I care about the truth and I just care about human beings. I just want everyone to win, that's all I can say, and I think we can."

2. He has priorities. In descending order of importance...
"It's family first. And then when I work on music, I'll sequester myself and work on it with a team of three, four, or five really focused experts for two weeks at a time. And then with apparel, the office is right across from my house, so I go to the office every day."

3. (Regarding his skin-colouresque Season 2 collection) He gives the people what they want.
"I think people just wear yoga pants and sweatshirts, and I wanted to make the most beautiful version of that possible," he said.

4. Kanye isn't interested in competition.
"When I run for president, I'd prefer not to run against someone. I would be like "I want to work with you."

5. Face it, Kanye is still planning on becoming the President of the United States.
"Oh, definitely."

6. And he'll do it in the most creative way he can think of.
"This is my theory: I think the world can be helped through design, so it's very important that I stay around creative, forward thinkers. It's very important that I continue to design, to be in practice of trying to make the best decisions possible."
