    Kanye West is now saying that he never told fans to boycott Louis Vuitton.

    But he isn't exactly telling people to run out and grab trunk loads of monogrammed leather goods, either.

    During his radio interview with Sway on Tuesday, the "Bound 2" rapper addressed reports that he had instigated a feud with the famous fashion house.

    "It's a misconception that I said boycott Louis Vuitton," he said towards the end of the quotable, rage-filled sit-down.

    "You can't boycott Louis Vuitton. I wouldn't tell nobody to boycott a brand that ain't nobody even thinking about no more. Nobody thinking about buying no Louis Vuitton."

    And in true Mr. West fashion, his war of words didn't end there.

    "That brand old. Nobody thinking about that brand. I wouldn't say boycott that brand. I'm talking about some relevancy."

    During an interview last week with 92.3 Now, Yeezy expressed rage when Louis Vuitton refused to sit down with him.

    "While I was in Paris I wanted to meet the head of Louis Vuitton and he said, 'I don't understand why we need to meet with you?' I said, 'Let me explain to you why you need to meet with me.'"

    He added, "Everybody in New York City right now, don't buy any Louis Vuitton until after January…Now do you wanna meet with me? Influence…they think that I don't realize my power."

    In an ironic twist, Kim Kardashian's fiancé still appears to be loyal to the brand's luggage.

    A few suitcases were seen being transported from the couple's New York City digs into a car earlier this week. Hmmm...

    West has caused quite a frenzy with his latest round of revealing interviews.

    He's slammed everyone from Kate Upton to Michelle Obama and just about everything from Nike to the paparazzi.
