After visiting Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, and baby North in the hospital a few days ago, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is now opening up about what was probably a pretty weird afternoon. Kardashian set up the visit as a Father's Day present to West, complete with a signed Apple Pro Computer mouse by the late Steve Jobs. Wozniak signed one for West in person. Then he listened to West's "business ideas" while Kim and her sisters hung out in another room with the baby.
Wozniak didn't elaborate on Kanye's big plans, but told ABC News, "It was an excellent conversation for about two hours . . . I some comments to give him. I have been thinking about it since the meeting." Oh, to be a fly on that hospital wall. And all that time, Kim and her sisters were next door, chilling with the baby. Was Scott Disick there? Bruce Jenner? It's a lot to picture.
Kanye has a particular affinity for Apple, believing himself to be the next Steve Jobs. He famously told The New York Times last month, "I honestly feel that because Steve has passed, you know, it’s like when Biggie passed and Jay-Z was allowed to become Jay-Z … I will be the leader of a company that ends up being worth billions of dollars, because I got the answers." Wozniak noted that when you "visualize yourself in a certain way," anything can happen, so maybe he believes in Kanye, too.
And Woz seemed to be into Kim's idea for Kanye's gift because he's a romantic at heart:
She wanted to do something nice, outstanding and unusual for her man. In this day and age you really have to put a thinking cap on. I believe in signs of true love. I wanted to be a part of this.
Aww. Kind of weird coming from a guy who once dated Kathy Griffin on her reality show My Life on the D-List, but it's nice.
