'I want world leaders there': Kanye West plans his own funeral

Rap megastar Kanye West has been planning his own funeral - and he wants a strict A-list-only presence to give him an official send off.

The Sun reported West saying he wanted world leaders in attendance.

"I was thinking about my funeral a couple of days ago," West said.

"The people I want to be there are like world leaders. Ones that say, 'Kanye gave me my first shot, he told me to believe in myself'."

But West admitted he didn't have long to acheive his goal.

"I want to affect people like that if I pass away. It's a mission in this amount of time. When the lightbulb was invented it wasn't to stop a war.

"I'm not saying what I'm doing is the most important thing that's happening on the planet.

"But it's necessary. Just like one teacher teaching in a class."
