Earlier this week, West spoke about his admiration for Jay Z and wife Kim Kardashian at Cannes Lions Festival, an annual awards show and festival for professionals in the creative communications industry.

Appearing on a panel called Technology, Culture And Consumer Adoption: Learning To Read The Cultural Landscape, West touched on the recent $3bn deal between Dr Dre, Jimmy Iovine and Apple for Beats Audio and Beats Electronics and last year's alliance of Jay Z and electronics giant Samsung.

The Apple fan – who has previously compared himself to late Apple CEO Steve Jobs, said he, personally, is only interested in allying with entities he considers to be at the top of their game.
