    What's wrong with him? It seems to me that he really needs in-house medical care. I'm such a fan of his music but I'm not so sure how much of his personality is narcissism or just a gimmick to stay relevant.

    The world is complex. So are the human condition. It is possible to be a music genius and be a mentality Ill. It is possible that the musician works best off his medication and the person does not. Giving Kanye the feeling of one half being lost every time the other is found. Or at least in Kanye's mind.
    We should all be able to agree that we have never experienced anything close to "being in his shoes" and so.. Who are we to judge?
    Sounds to me like, if your music is your life, that is a hell of situation to navigate. Especially with the world constantly judging either your person or your music. Can easily create the feeling of "I can't win". Even further proven by this comment section and yes, this comment.

    wow this is exactly what Michael Jackson did when he wanted attention or had a new album out. Every other day he was in the news doing something. Always staying on people's mind worst than any internet news feed. It's all about publicity and it smells like Kris Jenners doing. Well played. well played, indeed. "Lets use his illness or say he has a mental disorder to get more publicity just like Kim got with her sex tape! Wow
