Some of you may think Kanye used his one phone call in jail to ring up his best friend, stylist, Anna Vintour or even God himself, but no. His wife, Kim Kardashian, has revealed how exactly her husband, Mr. West, used his one call when he was arrested in 2008. In Kanye’s fancy style, he ordered food from Mr. Chow.
He was arrested for smashing paparazzi’s camera, and as a reference to the incident, reality TV star Kim, said, “They arrested him, and you know you get to make one call in jail, so he called Mr. Chow’s and ordered takeout to jail.”
That’s so Kanye, so we have no trouble believing his wife, given that the whole world knows he enjoys lavish takeout. Back in 2007, the BBC reported that the singer ordered $3,500 Indian dish from British Raj in south Wales. His order included a very rare five-foot-long Ayre fish, and a chef himself, to be part of Kanye’s entourage in New York.
When mortals go to jail, they usually use their one phone call to call their lawyer. When Kanye gets arrested, he apparently just repeats this line from“Success” over and over in his head, “How many times can I go to Mr. Chow’s, Tao, Nobu / Hold up, let me move my bowels.”
