TMZ Staffer Reads Kanye West For Filth For Calling Slavery 'A Choice'

In a pair of eye-opening, NSFW interviews with TMZ and Breakfast Club radio host Charlamagne tha God (both published Tuesday), Kanye West revealed how liposuction, a growing addiction to painkillers and wife Kim Kardashian's robbery factored into his 2016 mental breakdown.

In the latest in a series of startling interviews, tweets and videos, West, 40, also revealed he had undergone liposuction some years ago because he did not want to be called fat.

"When you hear about slavery for 400 years ..." For 400 years? That sound like a choice. "Like, you was there for 400 years and it was all of y'all?" It's like we're mentally imprisoned. I like the word prison because slavery goes too direct to the idea of blacks. "It is like slavery, holocaust". Critics have argued that creating an equation between American enslavement of Africans and the Holocaust of Jews is an oversimplification of two tragic but different historical situations, especially when those comparisons are used to play down the difficulties black Americans now face. "Blacks and whites being one race". Kanye added, "We're the human race". "What you're doing right now is actually the absence of thought".

West's remarks immediately sparked an uproar on Twitter, his favourite medium, and he was taken to task live by a TMZ employee who said he was "appalled". The same person that sat down with me and my mom, I think should've communicated to me directly and been like, 'Yo, Ye, you, you know what it is.

"I don't have all the answers that a celebrity's supposed to have, but I can tell you that, when he was running, it's like I felt something", West replied.

West told TMZ founder Harvey Levin and executive producer Charles Latibeaudiere that doctors had prescribed him opioids after he got liposuction.

"These pills that they want me to take three of a day, I take one, two a week maybe", West continued.

Kanye explains that he made a decision to get liposuction because he was sick of being called fat, and didn't want the same heat that Rob Kardashian was receiving about his weight gain. See, Obama came to me before he ran for office, and he met with me and my mother to let me know that he was going to run for office, because I am his favorite artist of all time. "We're texting each other". Two days before I was in the hospital, I was on opioids. "It made us feel like everything was good", he said during the interview. I'm not trying to say the right thing.

Kanye is an artist who taught a generation of marginalized people to find a wellspring of confidence long denied to them, to carry themselves as people with worthwhile things to say, to push against overwhelming cultural forces that would conspire to keep you benched in your own story.
