Kanye West interviews are always…something

Kanye West returned to the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show on Thursday night (August 10th).

It was the first time Kanye West appeared on the show since 2013, when the two ended their brief feud.

During the 20 minute interview, they talked about most of the issues swirling around Kanye West: his support of Donald Trump, mental health, his ye album, and more.

There were many interesting (some would say awkward) moments throughout the interview. When Kimmel asked West if he felt uncomfortable with his wife, Kim Kardashian, meeting with Trump by himself, he responded in a jokingly manner: “He is a player.”

A couple of moments later, Kimmel asked West:”‘George Bush doesn’t care about black people.’ It makes me wonder, what makes you think that Donald Trump does?”

Kanye West went silent. And then Kimmel bailed him out with a commercial break.

Other interesting Moments came when he was asked if his attitude towards women changed after having a daughter, he said no then mentioned what kind of porn he likes to look at. (Black on white, FYI.)

Kanye spent a good portion of the interview talking about being bipolar and the state of his mental health, at one point saying: “It’s important for us to have open conversations about mental health. We never had therapists in the black community.”
