Kanye West loves to be in the center of attention even if he complains about his album cover being banned or hijacking Taylor Swift.
Now, the singer revealed that he contemplated suicide sometimes. He said: “There were times that I contemplated suicide. I will not give up on life again.”
He added: “There’s so many people that will never get the chance to have their voice heard… I do it for them.”
The singer did not reveal the moment in his life that he contemplated suicide but he said that he struggled a lot lately, especially his mother’s death.
“Everything has been taken away from me,” the 33-year-old said.
“I had never stopped and tried to even soak in what all had happened. It was time to take a break and develop more as a person as a creator and focus more on my thoughts and my ideas and what I wanted to bring to the world.”
He continued saying he’s like a soldier: “For your world to crash off of a moment of sincerity or alcohol or whatever it is … I feel in some ways I’m a soldier of culture. I realize no one wants that to be my job and I’ll never go onstage again. I’ll never sit in an awards show again.”
“Will I feel convicted about things that meant stuff to culture that constantly get denied? I’m sorry I will. I cannot lie about it to sell records.”
