Kanye West tells James Corden "People can relate to my pain"
Rapper Kanye West continues to make waves with his recent profession of faith in Jesus, sharing with comedian James Corden how he encountered God. James Corden boarded a flight to LA with Kanye and the Sunday Service team. During the flight, West spoke of the joys and challenges of marriage, and explained how being married has changed his sense of time. West wed reality TV star Kim Kardashian five years ago while she was pregnant with their first child. "Marriage years are different than human years," he said. "Like you know how dog years are like seven years? Every marriage year is like 100 years." The rapper joked that marriage has felt as though it has lasted "500 years."
West also shared that his family did not know how to help him during his lowest moments. "People in my family were praying for me, but they couldn't call me and scream at me. I'm a grown man," he said. "But it was God that came and put this thing on my heart and asked if I was ready to be in service to Him," he added, noting, "I have no regret and no shame." God has always had a plan for me," he said, when asked if this dream has been brewing for years even before that moment at the hospital. "I think He wanted me to suffer more, and wanted people to see my suffering and see my pain and put stigmas on me, and have me go through all the experiences — the human experiences. So now when I talk about how Jesus saved me, more people can relate to that experience."
