Kanye Claims Jesus Saved Him from Porn

Oh, Kanye, you’ve done it again.

Since I started at this important news desk some three years ago, I feel as though I have covered the ever-changing, always-interesting topic of Kanye West more than any other; including mechanical watches and Bluetooth speakers. And though I’m certainly no huge fan (I mean Runaway was pretty good), I get the appeal. The man is famous, and an enigma, a formula that guarantees a perpetual place in the headlines as long as he keeps us all guessing (and also as long as he keeps doing interviews).

Last week the Yeezster announced, in full contradiction to previous utterances, that he is cured of his porn addiction.

It was only last year that the rapper revealed during a candid interview with late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel that he watches Pornhub, and has a proclivity for interracial smut, saying: “Blacked is my favourite … I mean, what’s the point in being Kanye West if you can’t break down the porn categories? A lot of black on white, obviously.”

The revelation was so well received by the good folks at Pornhub, in fact, that the Canadian outfit offered West a lifetime subscription to their premium service, on the house.

Now, however, it would appear that said subscription will lie dormant, as Ye has found God (or more God than he had found before, at least), and as such, decided that go hand in hand porn and Jesus do not.

In a recent interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1 podcast, the Gold Digger singer claimed that his addiction to pornography started at the age of five, when his dad left a copy of infamous wank-rag Playboy out.

Five.

Playboy was my gateway into full-blown pornography addiction. My dad had a Playboy left out at age five, and it’s affected almost every choice I made for the rest of my life,” he said.

“From age five, to now having to kick the habit. And it just presents itself in the open, like it’s okay. And I stand up and say, you know, it’s not okay.”

Porn as an addiction has been a hotly debated topic of late, with many chiming in on whether or not the salacious subject matter is ruining sex for a younger generation of men.

Like many of the newly-pious, however, Kanye was quick to ensure that his beliefs were forced upon others, asking collaborators on his latest album, titled “Jesus Is King” to not engage in pre-marital sex whilst working on the record.

Given that West’s wife, Kim, famously partook in the filming of a little bit o’ amateur porn herself back before she met her beloved Yeezy, it is unclear whether or not he has changed his thoughts on her past acting credits, and whether or not Jesus (aka “King”) approves.

I guess we’ll have to wait for his next big interview to find out.
