West wants to build amusement park

Los Angeles: Rapper-turned-fashion designer Kanye West has set his sights on building an amusement park.

"What I want to do post-Grammys is I want to work on cities, I want to work on amusement parks, I want to change entertainment experiences or life," contactmusic.com quoted West as saying.

West has already used his fame and success to open his own restaurant chain and has launched a women`s clothing line. He also premiered his first short movie "Cruel Summer" at the 65th Cannes film festival.

He plans to complete the new project in partnership with creatives at his new design firm Donda. He is already looking to tragic fashion icon Alexander McQueen and "Mirror Mirror" filmmaker Tarsem Singh for inspiration.

"Something like if McQueen or Tarsem was to meet the entertainment value of a Cirque du Soleil (circus arts company) or a Walt Disney. With the Donda company, this is our first installation," he said.
