Kanye West unveils his own ‘Cool List’ on Twitter

He says Thom Yorke, Spike Jonze and MIA are among the coolest creative people

Kanye West has staged his own Cool List on Twitter.

In a style reminiscent of the traditional NME countdown, West asked his followers to list who would be on their chart, shortly before naming his own choices.

“Who do you think the coolest famous creative people are?” he tweeted, before listing his choices as: “Sade, Ali, Jay-Z, Johnny Depp, Ralph Lauren, Sean Penn, Mos Def, Lil Wayne, Angelina Jolie, Thom Yorke, Ellen, Spike Jonze, MIA.”

Shortly before the tweets, West admitted: “Sometimes I think in the back of my mind (I know that’s redundant)… I wonder what Thom Yorke‘s doing right now?”

The NME Cool List 2010 will be announced soon, more details to come shortly.
