Kanye West wants to build a theme park.
The 'Stronger' rapper - who has previously ventured into film making, creating a women's fashion line and opening a restaurant chain - wants to use his Donda design company to create a leisure resort that will "change entertainment experiences".
He told GQ magazine: "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.
"Something like if [late designer Alexander] McQueen or [filmmaker] Tarsem Singh was to meet the entertainment value of a Cirque du Soleil or a Walt Disney. With the Donda company, this is our first installation."
The 34-year-old musician recently admitted he hopes his film 'Cruel Summer' - which has little dialogue, a musical score and seven screens depicting different images - will revolutionise the cinema going experience.
He said: ''When I was 17 and at high school, I made a painting that had seven angles to it, to create a 360-degree picture and now I'm 34 I created something similar.
''The way we work these days is like sensory overload. Normally when watching a movie we are on the phone or texting.
''Normally we have so much going on at us, this film represents that, as there is so much going on all the time.
''We constantly need more things to look at and the seven-screen experience represents the next generation.
''I was very particular about having the screens separate, where your mind puts the screens back together, the way you put memories together.
''I'm not the best director in the world, but I had an idea that I thought would be amazing to inspire people, like a dream of one day this being the way people watch movies.''
