Kanye West visited Seth Meyers on Late Night Tuesday, and discussed his aspirations as a fashion designer, albeit with one out-of-left-field comparison.

“You know, I have synesthesia – I can see sound in front of me,” West said. “So when I wanna do fashion, I just wanna give you sculptures.”

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Kanye interview without an outlandish reference to a historical genius, and West didn’t disappoint: “So it’s like Michelangelo – the Church wanted him to paint, and he wanted to do sculptures,” West said.

West also performed a crowd-pleasing medley of his greatest hits.
