Kanye West, don't ever change. How would I be immensely entertained if you ever stopped saying all of the crazy things you love to pontificate about in public. Now he's reaching back to the most amazing VMA debacle ever. No disrespect to Miley Cyrus' twerking fiasco, but Yeezy crashing Taylor Swift's acceptance speech was the most epic low point for the awards show. Ever. 

Now five years later, Kanye is chatting yet again about the incident, how it affected him, and what he's learned from it. Geez, Yeez, "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia" much? 


Us Weekly is breaking down 'Ye's chat with Interview Magazine in which he discusses his downward spiral after that evening, the backlash that ensued, and being criticized by President Obama.  

So how did Kanye rise from the ashes? He tells the magazine it took "God, sex, and alcohol… a lot of sex." 

He also feels like he's safeguard from normal celebrity pitfalls thanks to Kim and the entire Kardashian krew. He shares, "Well, I've got my astronaut family. You know, becoming famous is like being catapulted into space – sometimes without a space suit. 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."

Continuing his incredibly profound rant, Kanye explains, "As a celebrity, I have an opportunity to make a living at being the spokesperson for the third or fourth rendition of a thought – promoting something that has already been proven. The problem is that I like to be the inventor – I'm the person who works on the concept, who invents new thoughts, who brings new ideas into the universe."

Considering himself a "fine artist," Kanye's medium is now sound (see, I can be profound too, Yeezy!). He reveals, "I'd been in national [art] competitions from the age of 14. I got three scholarships to art schools … and I went to the American Academy of Art. I just make sonic paintings, and these sonic paintings have led me to become whatever people think of when you say 'Kanye West.'"

I know what I think when I hear that name…how about you?
