Is this the longest running feud in the history of celebrities or what? Kanye West and Taylor Swift should get a special prize for never letting it go… And by “it” we mean the unforgettable moment where Ye crashed Swift’s acceptance speech for MTV’s Best Female Video Award just to tell her she doesn’t deserve it.
No matter what else has happened or how many decades have passed, these two rival celebs will never be able to stop talking about their issues with each other and, honestly neither can we.
In West’s recent appearance on Nick Cannon’s podcast, “Cannon’s Class”, he spoke about his relationship with God and somehow related his religious beliefs to the reason why he ambushed Swift. Why and how on Earth did he connect the two? Only God knows.
According to the owner of Yeezy, his newfound connection with God stemmed during his hospitalisation in 2016. While speaking about his experience, the singer tells Cannon, “God brought me to my knees multiple times. The first time that I was put into the hospital in 2016, I actually started reading the bible. That was part of what God hit me with. You know, God has a calling on all of us and he uses us in different ways.”
When speaking of his calling from God, the artist of the hit song “Gold Digger” goes on to claim that he ran up on stage and belittled Swift as he was doing God’s good work. Is this information too absurd to believe that he actually said that? Here are his exact words:
“Right now, God is giving me the information…If God ain’t want me to run on stage and say Beyoncé had the best video, he wouldn’t have sat me in the front row. I would’ve been sitting in the back. It wouldn’t have made it so ridiculous of an idea because I had never heard of this person before, and ‘Single Ladies’ is, like, one of the greatest videos of all time. And I was only drinking Hennessy because I didn’t want to go to the awards show because it was a set-up.”
Only Ye himself could say something so narcissistic with such unfaltering confidence. This celeb never fails to surprise us!
In addition to interrupting Swift’s speech in 2009, Kanye is also practicing his divine works by spending US$50 million on Sunday Services in order to spread the gospel. “I spent every dime that I have for marketing from Yeezy on Sunday Service. Every dollar I had. I spent $50 million last year on Sunday Service if you add up the operas, if you add up the flights. It was 120 people going to Jamaica,” said the creator of the album “Jesus Is King”. “The Yeezys, they were selling themselves. So instead of paying for ads, I invested it in the church. I invested in spreading the gospel. I invested in saying Jesus’ name on high.”
Kanye has also publicly voiced his stance on being pro-life and aims to spread the importance of family. The Presidential candidate (side note: can’t believe we have actually come to a point where we can call him that!!!) stated that “family is just the key to the world”. The rapper went on to say that while many are trolling him for crying at the infamous presidential rally in South Carolina “there are people who have decided to have a child” because of this incident.
Oh Kanye, Kanye, Kanye. You are truly a wonder. We have no idea what drama this one-of-a-kind celeb is going to stir up next, but one thing we know for sure is that it is going to be EXTRAAAAA. We just love how being completely over the top is just a “normal” day for Ye.
Are you nervously biting your nails and waiting to see what West comes up with next? Don’t worry, we’ll keep you posted with a cup of tea.
