Let's be frank up front:
Kanye West may be in serious trouble.
The rapper is Tweeting non-stop, making absolutely no sense while doing so and, based on a recent report, may be coming off an Opiods addiction.
We really do think West may be suffering another mental breakdown and could be in need of some professional assistance.
We hope he gets it.
This caveat in place, let's also be honest:
We're a celebrity gossip website. We're obligated to joke around about a star when he or she relays the sort of bat$hit crazy messages that Kanye has been posting of late.
We thought it was random enough when the musician first returned to Twitter and rambled on about Lamar Odom and his alleged neck tattoos, as covered below:
West has since Tweeted his love and affection for Donald Trump, while more recently cutting ties with long-time friend and manager Scotter Braun.
“I no longer have a manager. I can’t be managed. I’m nobody’s client," West Tweeted.
This stance does sort of go along with a report that claims Kanye is out of control and that not even wife Kim Kardashian can calm him down these days.
And this report came out before Kanye delved deeper into his self-proclaimed love of the current President.
“You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him. We are both dragon energy,” Kanye wrote on Thursday, elaborating as only he can:
“He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought."
"If your friend jumps off the bridge you don’t have to do the same. Ye being Ye is a fight for you to be you.
"For people In my life the idea of Trump is pretty much a 50 50 split but I don’t tell a Hillary supporter not to support Hillary I love Hillary too."
From here, Kanye revealed that Kardashian actually pressed him to walk back his remarks about The Donald a little bit:
"my wife just called me and she wanted me to make this clear to everyone. I don’t agree with everything Trump does. I don’t agree 100% with anyone but myself."
West previously announced that he will release two new albums in June.
So it's very possible this social media meltdown is not a meltdown, but rather his own kind of promotion for those albums.
It's possible, we emphasize.
But the rapper did suffer an actual breakdown toward the end of 2016 and, well... he's now writing stuff such as this:
I’m nice at ping pong.
fear takes strategy Unlearn linear thinking Hit you with these zig zag thoughts.
And also I'm all the way out the sunken place. And I'm not scared anymore. I'm not scared of the media. I'm not scared of the past and I'm optimistic about the future. This tweet is in love not fear.
How can anyone know what to think when West is sending gibberish such as this?
The guy does have the entire Internet talking about him once again, so let's give him some credit.
But that isn't always a good thing, no matter what Kanye's apparent hero, Donald Trump, might say.
Do YOU think West has sincerely lost it? Or is this all a part of a much larger marketing strategy?
