Kanye West has been inundated with fans asking mundane questions after he asked his followers to leave him alone so he can work on his new album.
The rapper took to Twitter on Sunday to post a plea for privacy, ordering fans not to ask him any more questions until he finishes his new record SWISH.
"No offense to anyone... I'm asking everyone don't ask me for anything till after I'm finished with my album," he tweeted.

However, West's plea has backfired with the rapper's twitter page swamped with random questions from fans.
"Could I borrow a pen?" one fan asked.
Other messages posted include requests for glasses of milk, groceries from the supermarket, coffee orders, pizza deliveries and hugs.
The rapper is particularly busy in the run-up to Christmas as his wife, Kim Kardashian, gave birth to the couple's second child, son Saint West, on December 5.
Earlier this year, West's fans created an online petition urging US President Barack Obama to order the rapper to release the album early.
Within hours of its creation, the petition had garnered more than 100,000 signatures, the amount required for the Obama administration to respond, but it was later removed from the US Government's We the People website by moderators for violating the terms of participation.
SWISH will be the follow-up to West's 2013 record Yeezus.
