Kanye Discusses Contemplating Suicide

|

A world without Kanye West is not an acceptable alternative to a world filled with his bizarre tweets, insanely high self-esteem and ever-rotating parade of jaw-droppingly gorgeous lady friends. Thank god he feels the same way, despite Kanye’s admission that he has contemplated suicide. At a screening for his upcoming film Runaway, featuring Nicky Minaj as well as West’s rumored girlfriend Selita Banks, Kanye described himself as a “soldier for culture”, but that “there were times that I contemplated suicide,”  promising that “I will not give up on life again.” Said West, “There’s so many people that will never get the chance to have their voice heard. I do it for them.” We aren’t exactly sure what being a culture soldier would entail, but either way, we love you, Kanye!

West didn’t say when he had considered suicide, but we’re glad he’s doing better.  Without Kanye, who would bring us nude photos courtesy of MySpace? Or deliver unto us butt-naked phoenixes drawn by an 8-year-old, about which West tweeted today, “I’m deeply sorry if I haven’t offended everybody”? Kanye might think he’s better than Michalangelo, Fellini and Aretha Franklin rolled into one, but that diva never stops making us smile…and roll our eyes…and stare at our computer screen in a mix of confusion and disgust. And for that, we are eternally grateful.
