Kanye West Thought Kim Kardashian Would Leave Him After His Comments On Slavery
"I called different family members and was asking, you know, ‘Was Kim thinking about leaving me after TMZ?’"
And in a new interview with the New York Times, he expanded on the lyrics, saying he worried Kim was going to leave him after the TMZ incident.
"There was a moment where I felt like after TMZ, maybe a week after that, I felt like the energy levels were low," he said. "I called different family members and was asking, you know, ‘Was Kim thinking about leaving me after TMZ?’ So that was a real conversation."
Kanye also attempted to explain the meaning behind his comments on slavery, saying he "never said it's a choice":
I said the idea of sitting in something for 400 years sounds – sounds – like a choice to me, I never said it’s a choice. I never said slavery itself – like being shackled in chains – was a choice. That’s why I went from slave to 400 years to mental prison to this and that. If you look at the clip you see the way my mind works ... I think an extreme thing; I adjust it, I adjust it, I adjust it. That’s the way I get to it, but I have to push to, you know, the furthest concept possible.
