Maybe Kanye misspoke when he said he wanted to be more famous than Elvis.  Judging by his new “Sgt. Pepper’s” look, he may have a different impossible goal in mind.  No word on the lady whispering in his ear at the My House nightclub in Hollywood, but hopefully she’s not telling him about the band Kiss.
