There's hope for you: Kanye West once tried to design a perverted videogame

Rapper/producer/singer Kanye West is probably not like us. He travels the world performing for millions of people; sometimes he make them wait for hours. He, I can only assume, sleeps with a different supermodel -- maybe three or four -- in every city he visits. He makes more money breathing into a microphone than most people make in a year working 9-to-5 jobs that spill over into 50-plus-hour work weeks.

But maybe he's more like you than us that we think. For instance, he links to our sister-site Japanator on his personal blog. He makes videos like this and puts them on the Internet like it's normal. And when he was 12-years-old, he made a perverted version of Mario Bros. on his home computer.

"My game was very sexual," he tells Details magazine for a recent article, "The main character was, like, a giant penis. It was like Mario Brothers, but the ghosts were, like, vaginas."

It sounds silly, totally juvenile. But do you think this s**t was easy?

"You'd have to draw in and program every little step," he laments. "It literally took me all night to do a step, 'cause the penis, y'know, had little feet and eyes."

Sure it did, Kanye. Sure it did.
