Kanye West is at again with even more outrageous quotes and claims. The "Yeezus" rapper was interviewed by "12 Years a Slave" director Steve McQueen, and was asked about how he coped with "all the negativity" that was thrown his way by the media after he stormed the MTV Video Music Awards stage in 2009 to interrupt Taylor Swift's acceptance speech.
"But there must have been moments of doubt or depression or sadness," McQueen asks West during their Interview magazine chat. "I mean, with what happened after the Taylor Swift incident? ... How did you deal with it all mentally, physically and spiritually?"
"It's funny that you would say 'mentally, physically, spiritually' because my answer before you even said that was going to be 'God, sex, and alcohol," West, 36, answered. "I don't have an addictive personality, so that means that I can lean on what might be someone else's vice just enough to make it through to the next day. You know, just enough religion, a half-cup of alcohol with some ice in it and a nice chaser, and then ... a lot of sex."
Kanye didn't stop there with the quotable comments. Reacting to his celebrity status, he told McQueen, "Well, I've got my astronaut family. You know, becoming famous is like being catapulted into space -- sometimes without a space suit."
West, who is engaged to the mother of his child Kim Kardashian, added, "We've seen so many people combust, suffocate, get lost in all these different things. But to have an anchor of other astronauts and to make a little space family."
The rapper also commented on being an artist, "I just make sonic paintings, and these sonic paintings have led me to become whatever people think of when you say 'Kanye West.'"
