(The facts that he once jumped onstage to interrupt Taylor Swift, and that he is Kanye West, probably do not need to be referenced for context, right?)
The following hypothetical scenarios, dreamt up by our editors, all seem highly implausible. Which makes them fairly plausible.
With his four minutes, Kanye might...
...cloak the stage in silent darkness for a performance-art piece entitled The Absence of Kanye.
...pull out a remote that steers the jetpack built into Taylor Swift’s chair.
...update his iPhone.
...announce the launch of KO magazine, a hybrid lifestyle publication in collaboration with Oprah.
...try out Mike Chang’s four-minute ab assault.
...declare himself the new emperor of Japan.
...give a brief TED talk about fries.
...cover “What’s the Frequency, Kenneth?”
...bring out Chris Christie and grill him about Bridgegate.
...give a tutorial on backyard lake design.
...unveil Kanyecare, a universal single-payer health plan created with Mark Zuckerberg.
