Kanye West Needs Counseling? Rapper’s Debt Reaches Millions
Kanye West revealed that his debts run at $53 million. Furthermore, he also ranted about Taylor Swift in his single “Famous,” called out Mark Zuckerberg to invest a billion dollars on his ideas, and recently got involved in a Twitter feud against Wiz Khalifa.Advertisement
Is Kanye West trying his best to keep up with the Kardashians? He might be, as his co-album writer revealed that he “needs help, in the form of counseling, spiritual & mental.”
Kanye West guested on “Saturday Night Live” on February 13 to promote his album, “The Life of Pablo.” After the rapper performed “Ultralight Beam,” he revealed that his album is already available on his official website and under Tidal, the online streaming service, reports CNN Edition.
Shortly before he was to appear on the show, the rapper tweeted, “I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt… Please pray we overcome… This is my true heart…”
Since his post hints that the Wests need the financial support from fans to overcome a large debt, others took to Twitter, particularly fans of Taylor Swift, and relayed their disappointment with regards to how the rapper portrayed their idol in “Famous.”
The song’s lyrics include, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that bi*** famous.” Fans were disappointed with this notion, especially when West and Swift already put their differences aside after he interrupted Swift onstage at the 2009 MTV Music Awards.
To remedy the situation, West revealed last Friday that he had talked to Swift about the song and that the latter felt the lyrics were funny. He also claimed that Swift gave her blessings despite the unappealing manner her name was mentioned in the song.
Shortly after his statement, Swift’s representative revealed, “Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single ‘Famous’ on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, ‘I made that bitch famous.'”
West was also involved in a Twitter feud against Wiz Khalifa last week. Furthermore, the rapper also took to Twitter last Sunday and called our Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg. He said that the billionaire should invest a billion of his wealth to West “after realizing he is the greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time,” reports Billboard.
With all the “acting out” West has done this year, a co-writer of some of his songs, rapper Rhymefest, tweeted a post that reads, “[West] needs help, in the form of counseling. Spiritual & mental. He should step away from the public & yesmen & heal.”
