Kanye West blames ‘Taylor moment’ for breakdown
THE ‘Taylor Swift moment’ was responsible for the breakdown that led to Kanye West ending up in hospital, he claimed yesterday.
Radio stations blacklisted his music, West claims, after he upset the 28-year-old. ‘Ever since that Taylor Swift moment, it never had been the same, the connection with radio,’ he said. That ‘moment’ appeared to be when Kanye interrupted Swift on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2009.
West also said he felt ‘helpless’ when his wife Kim fell victim to an armed robbery in Paris. ‘It felt like all these things were almost set up to put me on meds, to break me down,’ he told radio interviewer Charlamagne Tha God.
Moving on to his mentor JAY-Z, West admitted he was offended when he and his wife Beyoncé failed to attend his nuptials four years ago. He said: ‘I was hurt about them not coming to the wedding.’
In a separate interview, with TMZ, West revealed his admission to hospital two years ago was for opioid addiction, not exhaustion.
