Kanye West joined The Late Late Show With James Corden for “Airpool” Karaoke Monday night, were the rapper almost equated his 5-year marriage to 500-years.
He talked about dealing with a mental breakdown and being massively in debt.
While talking about how people can relate to his music because of his own experiences, Kanye said, “If it was just, ‘Oh, we grew up with this guy’s music and now he’s a superstar’, it’s less compelling than, ‘Oh, this guy had a mental breakdown. This guy was in debt. This guy’s been through…’” That’s when Kanye caught himself before saying something that could have gotten him in trouble at home. But again, the save wasn’t much better. “Ya know, not been through, but this guy has a beautiful five years of marriage,” Kanye said. “You know, marriage years are different than human—like, you know how dogs are, what is it, seven years? Every marriage year is like a hundred years. It’s like 500 years of marriage.”
