Kanye offended quite a number of people when he brought a Jesus lookalike on stage during the first stop of his Yeezy tour in Seattle on
Saturday. Kanye now explains the method to his madness…
Kanye tells Wild 94.9 in San Fransico
“I had a friend of mine that is a pastor and we were discussing how we were going to deliver it.
My girl even asked afterwards “isn’t that weird if Jesus comes on stage or something like that?” No we do plays all the time where people play Jesus.
What’s awesome about Christianity is that we are allowed to portray God. We’e allowed to draw an image of Him. We’re allowed to make movies about Him. Other religions you can’t do that.
Michelangelo did it…It’s a painting, it’s a
sculpture, it’s a moving opera, it’s a play, it’s a message. I’m not even going to do any
comparisons with that. God knows where my
heart is at.”
