Kanye West got over his Taylor Swift stage invasion with ‘God, sex and alcohol’
The rapper made the comments in conversation with 12 Years A Slave director Steve McQueen for Interview magazine
Another day, another typically bizarre interview starring Kanye West.
This time, the rapper was in conversation with 12 Years A Slave director Steve McQueen for Interview magazine.
During the conversation, he opened up about how he got over the public backlash following his now famous interruption of Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2009.
Storming onto the stage, he argued in front of an open-mouthed live audience that Beyoncé was a far worthier winner, and implied that Swift had only bagged the honour because she was white.
"God, sex, and alcohol... A lot of sex," he told McQueen of his cathartic methods, before going on to compare fame to being in outer space.
"We've seen so many people combust, suffocate, get lost in all these different things. But to have an anchor of other astronauts and to make a little space family.
"As a celebrity, I have an opportunity to make a living at being the spokesperson for the third or fourth rendition of a thought - promoting something that has already been proven.
"The problem is that I like to be the inventor - I'm the person who works on the concept, who invents new thoughts, who brings new ideas into the universe."
Sadly for Mr West, his door isn’t currently swinging off its hinges after being banged down by billionaire investors, eager to throw cash at Kanye's recent technological ventures.
"Basically everyone said, 'F*** you'," he said.
The interview comes just a week after it was confirmed that West is a suspect in a second battery investigation, following an incident with a photographer at LAX Airport in 2012.
The rapper allegedly punched an 18-year-old boy for hurling racial abuse at his fiancée, Kim Kardashian, last week.
In other news, an entire religion has been founded dedicated to West online.
The Church of Yeezianity proudly proclaims itself 'THE BEST CHURCH OF ALL TIME!!!!!' on its official website, detailing in its About section: "We are an anonymous group who believes that the one who calls himself Yeezus is a divine being who has been sent by God to usher in a New Age of humanity."
Kanye West was recently forced to deny taking part in a fake interview, during which he allegedly compared himself to Nelson Mandela. But here are some people (and inanimate objects) he's definitely compared himself to in the past:
