In an interview with New York Magazine, the rap superstar also insisted that he has adopted a breezy-attitude towards styling his daily looks.
"It's so funny, I see photographs of myself from three, four years ago, and I had really similar look sense but it's kind of like curating and getting rid of things that, you know, competed. I had clothes that were, like, more in competition with me than complementing me," he said.
Talking about his shirt, he added: "It's about getting things that complement. I asked Phillip [Lim, designer] for this colour. This is a women's shirt he had, and I just felt this colour would be really, really nice on my skin so I was really happy about it. I'm lucky if I just brush my hair. I don't have a routine like that. I take a shower? That's about it."
West is scheduled to appear at the 2010 MTV Music Awards, airing tonight on MTV.
