Hey it takes a lot to speak up on all that. But hey don’t blame it on the public. It’s his own insecurities. He’s right though, American culture is all about how things look and there’s a huge elephant no one wants to talk about. Being okay with automatically judging each other.
You mean you don't want the Kardashians to call you fat you want to look good for Kim you're tired of her get in stuffed in the butt behind your back look good for us please don't we don't give two fux
Doctors get their patients high because they don't have the cures for their illnesses. But where is all donations and grants for research? Because I can buy a dime bag of weed and get the same results and save on these high ass doctor bills smh.
This makes no sense!!! I had a c section at the age of 23 and when I got home I immediately flushed my meds down the toilet because I took 1 and it made me feel loopy. I had just watched a doc about them and that was in 2004...so I really don't understand how he's blaming the hospital for his usage when he's such a genius. Smh.
I do not necessarily agree will all of Kanye West's political views, but when he mentioned his former opioid addiction, he was NOT helping his argument. In retrospect, he should not bring up his former addiction if he wants to argue a political point.
I have a major fascination with wheelchairs. I just go ballistic with laffter don't know why. People falling down. just a random thought i would love to see Kanye spill out of a wheelchair. I would need hernia surgery after.
I was drugged tf out bro i was drugged out ,i was on opioids 2 days after i got off opioids i was addicted to opioids .2 days i got off opiods im ERERERERERERRRRRRRRRR im in the hospital, right? Im taking 2- aye everyone listen to this please 2 days before i was in the hospital i was on opioids i was addicted to opiods i had plastic surgery because i was trying to look good for yall i got liposuction because i didnt want yall to call me fat like yall called rob at the wedding and made him fly home before me and kim got married i didnt want yall to call me fat so i got liposuction right? And they gave me opioids right? And i started takin' 2 of 'em and driving to work on the opioids right? Then my boy and i'd always ask my boy uhhhh you know to hand me uhhh we on tour get me some weed blah blah blah so he had to go get me the opioids and they was talks amongst my camp like yetis poppin' yetis poppin' pills right? So when he handed to me this to me he said you know this is used to kill genius right? So i didnt take it 2 days later im in the hospital i was takin' 2 pills a day at that time when i left the hospital how many pills you think i was given?..... SEVEN... I went from taking 2 pills to taking 7...so the reason why i did not why i dropped those tweets and everything cause i was drugged the fuck out bro...and i'm not drugged out these pills that they want me to take three of a day i take 1 a week maybe 2 a week. Yall had me scared of myself of my vision so i took some pills so i wouldnt go to the hospital and prove everyone right.....WE ARE DRUGGED OUT WE ARE FOLLOWING OTHER PEOPLE'S OPINIONS ,WE ARE CONTROLLED BY THE MEDIA ,AND TODAY IT ALL CHANGES
No dr in the macroverse should prescribe painkillers for plastic surgery. If you cut yourself open and go to the dr and say i was trying to get skinny please give me vicodi it hurts now they'll have you locked away but they have no problem doing it for you. Most plastic surgeons constantly violate their hipocratic oath by performing cosmetic surgery which has no medical upside and almost always leads to addiction of surgery and opioids. Not defending Kanye fuck him.
Notice how the Kardashians have been very quiet lately.... If he is testifying the truth then I think he was influenced to behave this way and say things out of this world. I bet that Kim is going to come out with a story using Kayne as the scapegoat to make bands from the divorce. Everyone else has their own opinion.
