It is also Kanye West's only tweet, as he recently deleted his entire history. So what could Mr. West be trying to tell us? There are a couple things it could represent. Let's jump in.
Kanye West Has a New Album DroppingKanye West is reportedly finished recording material for his sixth solo studio album. It's possible that June 18th could be the planned release date for the as-yet-untitled album. West hasn't released a CD of his own since 2010's "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," except for his collaboration with Jay-Z, "Watch the Throne." According to those who've heard West's new material, the tone is "dark."
It shouldn't be long before we get to hear some of West's new material. He's booked as the musical guest on the season finale of Saturday Night Live May 18, an appearance he'll likely use to promote at least of of his new songs on the upcoming album.
Kanye West Has a New Baby DroppingIn addition to new music, Kanye West has also recently collaborated on creating a human life with girlfriend Kim Kardashian. If June 18th were indeed the due date, it would mean Kim is a little more than seven months pregnant currently. West announced she was pregnant at a show in Atlantic City last December, when she would have been just three months pregnant. While three months is a bit early to announce to a crowd on drunk fans, that's hardly a subject covered in Emily Post's Etiquette, so it's hard to fault West for his faux pas.
Kanye West is a Third-Wave FeministJune 18th serves as an historic date for several major feminists: it marks the anniversary of the day that Sally Ride became the first American woman in space, Susan B. Anthony was fined for trying to vote and Amelia Earhart became the first woman to fly in an aircraft across the Atlantic Ocean.
Perhaps Kimye is having a girl and Kanye wants to leave a subtle reminder for his daughter that she can grow up to be anything.
Kanye West Hates FranceRecently in France with Kim Kardashian, perhaps Kanye did not have a very nice time. June 18th is an embarrassing day in French history, the anniversary of Napoleon Bonaparte's defeat at Waterloo. Not usually known for his subtlety, this could be West's vague message to the people of France.
Kanye West is a Member of the IlluminatiThere is an obsession, in a particularly insane corner of the internet, with identifying major celebrities who are supposed members of the Illuminati. People pick apart song lyrics and lines from movies, claiming to know which celebs are meeting up in secret to plan the society's destruction and the beginning of the New World Order. Really.
West has long been a suspected member of the club, stemming from his purported use of "Illuminati symbolism" in his music video for "Power," as well as his close friendship with Jay-Z and Beyoncé who are basically co-presidents of the Famous People Illuminati Club.
"June Eighteen" could be a masked message to other members of the Illuminati. Written numerically, June 18th is 6-18. Six is one of occultism's most venerated numbers. Eighteen could be separated as 11+7. Eleven is, of course, double ones, a very sacred number in occultism and seven is a divine number, representing complementing ideas, such as days of the week and colors of the rainbow.
No, but for real, June 18th is a Tuesday, which means it's likely the release date for his new album. Also there is no Illuminati conspiracy. Seriously, you people are crazy.
