Kanye West Got Past His Taylor Swift Scandal With ‘God, Sex + Alcohol’

Kanye West

Following his interruption of Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, Kanye West was forced to turn to three things to get him through the inevitable backlash.

It wasn’t sex, drugs and rock n’ roll, but you’re close.

In a sit down with Steve McQueen for Interview Magazine, the director of ’12 Years a Slave’ asked Kanye how he dealt (“mentally, physically and spiritually”) from the response to his stunt.

To which the self-proclaimed Yeezus responded, “God, sex, and alcohol.”

“Just enough religion, a half-cup of alcohol with some ice in it and a nice chaser, and then… a lot of sex. And then I’d make it to the next week.”

West also talked to the director about how he used to be an art prodigy, explaining, “I’m a trained fine artist. I went to art school from the time I was 5 years old. I was, like, a prodigy out of Chicago … I’d been in national competitions from the age of 14. I got three scholarships to art schools … and I went to the American Academy of Art.”

“So the joke that I’ve actually played on everyone is that the entire time, I’ve actually just been a fine artist,” he added. “I just make sonic paintings, and these sonic paintings have led me to become whatever people think of when you say ‘Kanye West.'”

Okay, then.

And if that wasn’t enough of a hilarious sound bite for you, here is Kanye’s response when asked about the controversy surrounding his ‘Bound 2′ music video with a nude Kim Kardashian:

“It’s a dream, and I think the controversy comes from the fact that I don’t think most people are comfortable with their own dreams, so it’s hard for them to be comfortable with other people’s dreams.”

Yeah, that’s definitely the reason.
