I haven’t been on but I searched for a thread on Kanye west…couldn’t find anything. Please don’t talk about his political opinions or presidential run. But he was hospitalized for psychosis. They say from sleep deprivation , but like many people say he seems bipolar. Maybe if Kanye gets put on antipsychotics he’ll come here asking for med advice. Lol.
Why no one got him to check into a clinic with ’ exhaustion ’ I don’t know…
I agree. Saw that on the news this morning. He’s having a psychotic episode but they’re not calling it that…
It feels less appropriate to armchair diagnose him than usual, but he’s always seemed bipolar to me. He’s seemed out of control for a little while now.
In any case, particularly with the attack on his wife, he’s had a lot of stress to deal with lately.
Hope he’s treated well and gets the help he needs and is back on his feet soon.
I think I’m alone in that I like Kanye west as a person more than his music??? He really intrigues me the past year or so. Maybe cuz of the Gemini connection
Although I do love his old music but not so much the new stuff.
I love his new stuff, too. I really loved 808s, MBDTF and Yeezus.
I like him as a person, too. He’s got an overactive sense of justice, I think, that he can’t be quiet about. Definitely seems to swing between grandeur and self-loathing. For all that, a brilliant artist and so sweet to Kim and his children.
I saw him in concert during the Seeing in the Dark tour - it was an amazing show.
I saw him in 08 with Lupe fiasco, Rihanna and N.E.R.D.
forget what the tour was called but he killed it
There were ugly comments about Mental Illnesses especially SZ on twitter.
I was wondering about what happened…
Well, best wishes. Kind of. I dunno it must be hard to be a celebrity because when you’re having a manic episode everyone thinks you are being really creative or something benevolent. OR when you are delusional and say you’re a genius and you kind of are, in a lyrical way, so people ignore the warning signs…I was thinking he was bipolar for a while now, but hopefully now that it’s out, he can get stabilized.
Yeah, I think a lot of people write it off as arrogance in his case. He’s copped to having depression and has been medicated for it, but most bipolars I’ve met don’t want the hypomania and mania treated and so don’t accept there’s a problem.
This is unrelated to his recent struggles, but I find Corey Taylor’s take on Kanye to be pretty funny.
In all seriousness, I hope he gets the help he needs.
he sucks. his music is garbage and his clothing line sucks too.
It seems like one of those things where when I heard he was hospitalized I wasn’t too surprised. He is well known for having strange outbursts and behavior. He’s famous enough that if diagnosed with sz they would start listing him as one of the famous people with sz. I wonder how differently medicated Kanye west would act.
Twitter is dead anyway. They can’t find a buyer for it and they can’t make a profit.
If he gets put on antipsychotics it might change the way he makes music.
