And there’s the exact moment.
Kanye West told the crowd at the LA premiere of his new movie Runaway last night that he contemplated suicide, but didn’t go through it because apparently a bunch of people were already doing it. Or something. I mostly tune out whenever Kanye’s talking and just wait for the non-intentional punchline to eventually roll out. Via E! Online:
“There were times that I contemplated suicide,” West told the crowd, adding that he is now certain, “I will not give up on life again.”
“There’s so many people that will never get the chance to have their voice heard…I do it for them.”
Yes, because I’m sure had these people lived they would’ve gone on to create an album cover that consists of a cartoon version of themselves banging an armless, naked harpie on the couch. Bless you, Messiah Kanye. You truly know us more than we know ourselves.
