Hip-hip mogul Kanye West is being taught the art of modesty - by U2 frontman Bono.

However, the GOLD DIGGER star, who enjoys visiting record shops to buy his own CDs, remains supremely self-confident despite the Irish rocker's attempts to dent his arrogance.

He says, "(Bono) is teaching me to be nicer.

"(But) if someone else had made that album (THE COLLEGE DROPOUT) I would've bought it.

"I think my music is the greatest because I worked hard to get it that way."
