Kanye West has vowed not to be influenced by "the devil".

The 33-year-old star - who recently produced a short film, 'Runaway', based on his song of the same name - clarified how he perceives the devil, whom he talks about "selling his soul" to in the song.

He told MTV News: "There's this line where I say, 'I sold my soul to the devil, that's a c***py deal,' and all these people said, 'What you mean you sold your soul to the devil?' But when I say it, I'm saying, when I allow other people's ideals to interfere with what I know is true to myself, that's the devil.

"So, it's like, people talking mess on the blogs is the devil or trying to call me names - that's what the devil is. And me thinking twice about what it is that's really in my heart because of what people's reaction would be is me selling my soul to the devil.

"You're on earth for only 80, 90 a hundred years. I have to create from my dreams, from the dreams I had as a five-year-old, and use everything - all the greatest people and all the tools I have around me - and ask as many questions as I can to help facilitate and bring this out."

Kanye has also taken to twitter to laugh off speculation he has joined the Illuminati - a supposed ancient secret society which is speculated by many conspiracy theorists to be behind a number of significant events through history and to still wield a shadowy power in modern society.

Kanye tweeted: "I've got question about 'the Illuminati' ... what is it exactly ??? ... and why do people think pop stars have a membership???!!! LOL (sic).

"Is illuminati and devil worshipping like the same thing ... do they have a social network that celebs can sign up for? (sic)

"Question... can you devil worship on the new iphone??? LOL!!! What's better for devil worshipping Iphone or the Droid... Does lucifer return text... is he or she on Skype? Don't wanna be sexist. (sic)"

Meanwhile, the 'Stronger' hitmaker made a surprise appearance at New York's Brooklyn Bowl in the early hours of Sunday morning (24.10.10).

The rapper was described as having the "time of his life" during the 20-minute set.
