Go West and Go Huge
February 18, 2016  | By Eric Gould
 
Kanye West is apparently $53 million in debt according to one of his recent tweets just before the Grammys, so he’s looking for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to not only get him out of debt, but to also pony up $1 billion to back West’s startup, called Donda. West entreated Zuckerberg on Twitter (ahem, not on Facebook) to back his idea for a visionary communications company which seems structured on his organizational chart to influence all things, including holograms, hovercrafts, healthy fast foods and cancer research, among other things. We didn’t see agriculture or dentistry on Donda’s list, so, safe bet there are a few things in the world that West doesn’t have designs on. Stephen Colbert runs down the whole story for you here. –Eric Gould
