What Does Kanye West's Mysterious 'June Eighteen' Tweet Mean?

By Michael Arbeiter, Hollywood Staff

Whatever big plans you have for the upcoming months - moving to a new apartment, taking a trip to the Netherlands, disregarding societal customs at Bonaroo - cancel 'em. You'll need to free up your schedule, because the horizon promises what very well might be the most important thing to ever happen. After all, this sort of gravity must be assumed in conjunction with the cryptic messages of a prophetic voice like Kanye West, an icon whose grandeur can never be overstated. In the latest demonstration of our culture's appropriately aligned values, West has earned more than 15,000 retweets for a message he posted Thursday morning: ''June Eighteen.''

June Eighteen

- KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) May 2, 2013

Stirring. Provocative. Inspirational. We wonder, we hope, we theorize. While we await with bated breath the answer to this existential question, we revel in the mystery, chauffeuring a few possibilities through our synapses on what exactly might be going down this coming June 18th...

A new album from WestThe first thought, and a likely possibility, is that West will release new tunes on this day. It's been more than two years since his last studio release, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and it's about time he graced his public with another.

A new concert tourIf not an album, then maybe a string of performances, set to kick off on the 18th of June?

The due date of his Kardashian offspringWe first learned of Kim Kardashian's pregnancy back in December of 2012. Assuming that she kept the news under wraps for a couple of months, June 18 is a feasible date for the expected birth.

The revival of the Dr. Donda West FoundationKanye's charity, which fought against dropout and illiteracy rates for American students, ceased operations in 2011. Maybe the music artist is kicking back up with his philanthropic efforts by reopening the institution, named for his late mother.

Waterloo DayAmong West's most well documented passions is his love for British history. Every year, the United Kingdom commemorates the Battle of Waterloo on June 18, and will perhaps this time be joined by a reverent Kanye.

The birthday of Hollywood.com Photo Director Tiffanie GrahamLittle known fact: Kanye and Tiffanie are quite close. He's probably planning a surprise party, hence the nebulous message. Don't tell her.

What are your theories?
