Kanye West joined Instagram on Sunday. So far, he’s posted one photo of a futuristic car driving alongside a slanted, glass building with no explanation. West also hasn’t begun to follow anyone, including his wife, Kim Kardashian. Still, he has already gained more than 800,000 followers.

West’s dipping his toes into Instagram comes six months after he tweeted, “I was thinking about getting an Instagram but only on one condition.” He followed that up with a message on Twitter in March that explained, “no one can ask me or try to tell me what to Instagram… It’s my art.” The rapper then noted his social media posts, such as his tweets, “are a form of contemporary art only compromised by people trying to tell me what to tweet and not to tweet… Non artist trying to grab the paint brush.”

The singer has yet to reveal why he finally joined Instagram or how he plans to use it, though it’s safe to say we will. For her part, Kardashian has also not mentioned West now using the social media app. West has repeatedly appeared in photos she’s posted to Instagram, including a handful on Saturday night, just hours before he verified his own account. Gossip Cop will update should West post more or explain his intentions for using Instagram.
