'I'm a bit like da Vinci' - Kanye

Kanye West has compared himself to some of the greatest minds of the Renaissance, including Leonardo da Vinci, ahead of his Glastonbury gig.

The rapper (38) told a Sunday magazine that, like the Renaissance greats, he defies strict categorisation.

"Imagine if da Vinci or Michelangelo or Galileo were asked not to think of anything except for the one thing they first became famous for.

" I'm not saying I'm da Vinci, but I feel it's right for any human being to compare themselves to anything."
