Crazy Cruise, Meet Crazy West

Tom Cruise and Kanye West. Equally egomaniacal, and equally deluded. Kanye wants to be written into the Bible.
Cocky rap star Kanye West is calling for a revised edition of ‘The Bible’ because he thinks he should be a character in it. West feels sure he’d be “a griot’ (West African storyteller) in a modern Bible. He says, “I bring up historical subjects in a way that makes kids want to learn about them. I’m an inspirational speaker. I changed the sound of music more than one time, for all those reasons, I’d be a part of the Bible. I’m definitely in the history books already.

Recently, both spent time in proximity to each other when Cruise attended a West concert. Cruise did his usual "My psyche is so unformed I have to work really hard to act like a regular person" thing, yelling appreciative statements about the music from cue cards that his publicist thoughtfully held just off camera.
"Damn," said a very impressed Cruise..."Great song!" Tom Cruise said aloud while the two G.O.O.D. Music teammates played..."Wow!" Cruise yelled when "Heard 'Em Say" came to an end...(West) then introduced Cruise, who was a little shy but smiled and waved to everyone when the spotlight and camera-phone flashes hit him. Kanye closed with another bread-and-butter hit, "Jesus Walks," leaving Tom to say "un-f---ing-believable!" as he filed out with everyone else.
