Kanye West exclusive interview: “I had to lose, I had to be humbled…” (Q349 Preview)

KANYE-WEST-spread
Despite many people’s perception of him, Kanye West insists he has put his ego aside in order to be more creative.

The Glastonbury headliner speaks exclusively to Q in our new issue, on sale from Tuesday (30 June), and he tells Dorian Lynskey that following wide-spread criticism of his interruption of Taylor Swift’s speech at the 2009 MTV Awards, and the impact of his mother’s death on him – Donda West died following surgery in 2007 – he went through a long period of self-reflection and self-evaluation.

“I had to get beat up, I had to lose, I had to be humbled, and I had to realise my position,” he says. “I made a mountain for myself, I went to the mountain top, and I never touched God. You have to recalibrate and understand that you’re not a god in any way other than the fact that God is inside us. I am here to serve God.”

He argues this understanding has made him a better artist, declaring that all his records have lived-up to the creative ideals he set for them.

“That’s what makes me a good artist, because I can portray what’s in my head,” he argues. “I challenge commercialism all the time. I challenge people with sonic beauty. For a society that’s been greyed out by mediocrity, it’s like eating a whole bunch of McDonald’s and then you get some real food. What’s actually good is challenging when you’ve been served bullshit so much. The ultimate win is when a lot of people want that new good as opposed to the mediocre thing they were getting before.”

    Hi, I and my ex boyfriend broke up about 7 weeks now. We’ve been together for 4 years. We had so many issues during in our relationship. We got engaged and eventually he changed his mind not to get married soon and told me he doesn’t want kids. It broke my heart. He also told me that culture differences is another prcoblem between us. When we broke up I beg many times. He told he doesn’t want to go back in to our relationship and he wants us to move on. I stayed another 2 weeks with him while I am looking for a new place. we had sex a couple times. He told me he just want us stay as friends.

    When I moved out, he didn’t txt or call but when we each other we are fine talking like a friend. Is there anyway that i can win him back? that was the question i asked my sister and she told me he have had an encouter with the famous love doctor and i contacted him and he prayed for my relationship and my boyfriend came back to me and my relationship was restored and now we will be getting married soon. Please get to know him and ask for his help on (prayerstosaverelationship@yahoo.com). The love doctor is the best and will help you :)

    100% POWERFUL AND GENUINE SPELL CASTER,My name is Mr.Johnson Brown from France and I am a 59 years old man. I was married to Mrs.Helen Baines Johnson and I’m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife.so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce.she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she didn’t love me anymore.So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife.So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.{salvationlovetemple@gmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who didn’t call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to “bringing your ex back. So thanks to the Dr Sam for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again. salvationlovetemple@gmail.com, Thanks….

    I had doubts about magic spells after purchasing many spells that never worked I actually decided to never buy a spell again. I have tried different spell casters..Some of them never answered me after I paid and were obvious scammers, some really cast a spell but for some reason it didn’t work. Then I saw a video on youtube with a person who was mentioning she had results with Mama Anita. Despite the suspicions I had her site looked real so I gave spells a last try. It’s probably the best decision I ever made in my life because it worked and my boyfriend came back with me After I broke up with him I spent a lot of time wishing that I could just turn the clock backwards.He helped me do just that. In fact our relationship feels like the break up never even happened. We have never been this happy or passionate, all thanks to mama anita. If you’re looking for a good spell caster look no further,you can contact her straight on .(mama.anitaspellcraft@hotmail.com). website..http://kelvinlargemyself.wix.com/anita

    TESTIMONY TO EVERYONE THAT COMES MY WAY.) Please bear with me and read on! I noticed a sudden change when my husband started cheating on me.’For the worse,’he started treating me and our little kids as total strangers’.I knew once that something has gone wrong. I hired a private investigator that cost me a lot to help monitor his moves. Sadly,i was told he was seeing another woman. It turned out right to be what i was thinking. I couldn’t just believe it so i confronted him with the pictures,but he denied it bluntly. he said she was just a lady he had some working project with but foolishly i believed him.But on one faithful day, i caught them red handed and that moment my heart stopped pumping for a while as i bust into tears. I have never seen in his eyes so much hatred before, to the extent that he would have to cheat on me. I still remember his very words ” “KEEP THE HOUSE AND YOUR SICK KIDS! He stopped coming home from that day. I tried all i could to make him come back home but all my efforts proved abortive till i stumbled on an article online about a spell caster: Azimeye how he castes love spell to reunite broken relationships.But At first, I told myself it was a scam because i never believed in such but as pressure from my husband’s lawyer increased i became desperate and gave it a chance.You never know until you break down the walls and give something a chance.Though i know it sounds too desperate but i love my husband and wanted him back.i contacted the love spell caster Azimeye or visit our page on Facebook at SPELL is REAL.I followed all his instructions and everything happened just as he said. My husband came back to me after 24 hours of preparing the love spell and we have been living for some years now without any problem. People call Doctor Azimeye as nice man but i call him a God sent! Do you need help for these areas: MARITAL PROBLEMS,DEPRESSION, STROKE,CANCER,DIABETES,BREAK UP,LOVE SPELL,INSTANT DEATH REVENGE ,INFERTILITY PROBLEM, EX. REMOVAL, BAD LUCK,ATTRACTION,WIN A LOTTO,CONTRACT,PROMOTION AT WORK, RECOVERING BACK LOST FUNDS OR DEBT i advice you to contact azimeyespellcaster111@gmail.com
