I don’t know what meds Kanye West is on, but apparently he’s off them, or was when he gave an interview to Zane Lowe on Beats 1, Thursday, upon the release of his newest album “Jesus Is King.” Whether Jesus is king or not might be debatable, but it’s a certainty that Kanye West is screaming banana bonkers. The Week:
“I am unquestionably, undoubtedly the greatest human artist of all time,” West said. “It’s just not even a question anymore at this point. It’s just a fact.”
The greatest “human” artist, he qualifies. Okay…does that mean that there are non-human artists, we should know about? Polar bears doing ice sculptures, blowfish creating tasteful mosaics out of coral reef? Or, maybe West is talking about other non-human beings, such as the ones that his medication is supposed to control, they who flit about in the corners of his vision, flapping their leathery wings, and flashing their fangs? Only his shrink would know for sure. And perhaps Donald Trump, his BFF and role model.
West mentioned this while deciding that it was “God’s practical joke to all liberals” for “the greatest artist in human existence to put a red hat on,” referring to his support for President Trump, since this is apparently the sort of thing God has time for. “God is using me to show off,” West also said at one point in the interview.
Apparently also now beyond question is the fact that a West administration lies in the American public’s future, whether they like it or not. After previously announcing his plans to run for the White House, West stated as a matter of fact Thursday, “there will be a time where I will be president of the Untied States.”
Well, now we know what the plot line for “Wingnuttia: The Next Generation” looks like. Kanye West on the GOP ticket and Kim Kardashian as First Lady. Oh, my stars….and they are not my stars, believe me.
The consistently strange discussion also included West revealing that he asked those working on his new album to abstain from premarital sex, saying that he’s “no longer an entertainer,” and casually announcing another album to be released this Christmas amid skepticism that he’ll even manage to release Friday’s album.
The just released album was twice delayed and with any luck, West’s presidential ambitions will go the same route. The White House needs to be overrun with rabid raccoons and contaminated with flesh eating bacteria, more than it needs him in the Oval Office — even as a guest, for that matter. Delusion this severe needs to be contained. There’s enough full blown crazy on Pennsylvania Avenue these days, we don’t need this loon.
