Seth Rogen says he’s “a huge fan of Kanye West,” despite mocking the rapper and his fiancé Kim Kardashian.

As Gossip Cop reported, Rogen and frequent co-star James Franco spoofed West’s “Bound 2” music video last fall, and just last week recreated the couple’s Vogue cover.

Rogen explains to the Associated Press, “I’m like just really into his music, and when we made the original [parody], we were filming The
Interview in Vancouver and we kept trying to go to Kanye West shows that kept getting canceled or the dates kept changing and it happened like two or three times.”

“We were just talking about him all the time and then the video came out so we were just like, ‘Let’s just try to do that,'” he recalls. Rogen joked that now he and Franco need someone to play the role of baby North West. “Michael Cera would be good,” he quipped. “Get [Vogue shoot photographer] Annie Leibovitz to take the pictures.”
