Elon Musk Says He’s Inspired By Kanye West At SXSW Event
The Tesla and Space X innovator, Elon Musk, told SXSW attendees that he turns to Kanye West for inspiration.
SXSW is going well so far and already new news is flooding out from Austin, TX, as the innovator and icon Elon Musk has made it clear who inspires him to push boundaries. During a Q&A with Musk, he threw credit at one Kanye West, who to him is an “obvious” choice.
This is not the first time where Elon has publicly sang Kanye Tudda’s praises. During Time’s annual list of influential figures in 2015, Elon gushed about Kanye’s penchant for pushing boundaries and constantly going back to the creative drawing board.
With inspiration a key factor in Musk’s mind, the Q&A is just one of many for the inventor, as he already crashed HBO’s Westworld panel on March 10, where he discussed the sci-fi show’s themes while ruminating on inspiration and why it’s so crucial to balance out “the negative things in the world.”
Peep the quote that came from SXSW below and share with us your own inspirations @Okayplayer.
Who inspires Elon Musk? “Kanye West, obviously. And Fred Astaire. You should see my dance moves.”
