The last few days have been a whirlwind in the Kanye West world, first a presidential rally where he had no microphones so he appeared to rant — but said very sane things which were sensible if you actually listened to what he was saying.
It was followed by a series of tweets where he was concerned Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian were going to lock him up, airing family laundry about the Jenners putting Kim in Playboy, and how he’d never do it to his children. It was an hour of a flurry of odd tweets which all got deleted.
Then, yesterday, he started posting about a new album he says he’s releasing Friday, which made this all seem like a PR stunt, followed with a video posted to his feed with Dave Chapelle hanging with him at his Wyoming Ranch.
This morning came back with more problems with the Kardashian clan:
These have since been deleted as well, but what I’m seeing is the Kardashians trying to control a man who has a mission from the Lord. He’s reaching out for help because he feels trapped. They’re a powerful family, he’s tied up with them, and no one will listen to him.
Does he need to be hospitalized? Is he hurting himself or anyone? I doubt it. It doesn’t seem like it from anything. He sounds eccentric, but all geniuses do from time to time.
Kanye’s under huge pressure with presidential elections, a calling from God, trying to sort all of this with the most worldly family possible, it’s got to be wearing on him. And a wife’s duty should be to support her husband, not to act an enemy. I feel bad for Kanye on that level, and like usual, it appears he’s just right but saying the unpopular things no one wants to hear, but need to hear.
