I know that God’s been calling me for a long time and the devil’s been distracting me for a long time.
When I was in my lowest points, God was there with me and sending me visions and inspiring me, and I remember sitting in the hospital at UCLA after having a mental breakdown and there’s documentation of me drawing a church and [wanting to] start a church in the middle of Calabasas.
Because every time I stand up, I feel that I’m standing up and drawing a line in the sand and saying, ‘I’m here in service to God and no weapon formed against me shall prosper.’
Jesus has won the victory. I told you about my arrogance and cockiness already. Now the greatest artist that God has ever created is now working for him.
— Kanye West, Church service at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, November 18, 2019
‘sending me visions… having a mental breakdown.’
I’m not making light of mental illness, but these two things are definitely related.
I hear the cha-ching of the cash Kanye is bringing in with this new targeted market…..
“Now the greatest artist that God has ever created is now working for him.” Well, I guess God isn’t going to do anything about Kanye’s narcissism, his belief he is a great musician on the order of Mozart. He’s talented, but not Mozart talented. He’d have to be much greater to be as good as his narcissism claims he is.
Look at Osteen’s expression. I wonder if he’s wondering if somewhere along the line this will all blow up in his face.
That last paragraph is priceless. I’m sure he does have visions. I change the station whenever he performs on Saturday Night Live. Hopefully, they won’t invite him again.
Kayne needs some real help, but evidently his family likes the money (he is talented). It was so fucking sad when he came to the white house oval office and did, whatever that was he did. and NO ONE stopped him.
As the wife to Bipolar Disorder man, PLEASE GET HIM SOME HELP. Sad.
Kanye publicly admits he is diagnosed bipolar, and doesn’t take his prescribed medication; it affects his creativity, apparently. So it would seem quite likely that his embrace of fundie Christianity and the explosion of new ventures around it, is a sign that he’s in a major manic phase right now, and when the manic phase ends…. let’s just say that while I am no fan of the Kardashian family, I fear for Kim and her children’s safety when Kanye comes crashing down from his high…(I have a couple of bipolar relatives myself.)
