This is a few weeks old, but I just saw it last night. I’ve been busy and, although I heard about this tangentially on the blogosphere, I hadn’t seen the interview in full. Earlier this month, Jimmy Kimmel had Kanye West on his show and basically sat and listened to Kanye incoherently drone on and on about something that I can’t figure out. This clip comes from the end of the interview, and even after listening several times, I still can’t really get a sense of what the Christ-delusion sufferer Kanye is talking about.
Kimmel looks so uncomfortable throughout much of the interview and just kind of lets Kanye talk because, I guess, it’s impossible to reason with a crazy person. And I don’t use “crazy” in jest. The one thing that is obvious in this clip and in the interview as a whole (because the content or purpose of the speech is not) is that Kanye is all over the place, and it makes me wonder whether we are watching the decline of another celebrity. Normally, I just hate on Kanye because I think he is arrogant and annoying. After watching this, though, I don’t feel annoyed by what he said. I feel sad for him and hope that he gets what seems like some much-needed help.
