Kanye West; Conspiracy or Truth.
Story by Lucia Molina
Just recently, it was reported that rapper and Yeezy designer Kanye West had been hospitalized.
Sources from NBC News and TMZ, as well as close acquaintances of Kanye West, stated that the rapper was being observed at a Los Angeles hospital on a Monday night, a few weeks back. This came as a shock less than a day after the Chicago-born rapper canceled what was left of his Saint Pablo Tour. Reportedly, the Los Angeles police responded to a call at about 1:20 PT that day. Despite the police having found no indication of criminal activity, sources said Kanye had to be hospitalized for the well being of his health and safety.
Now in light of this recent debacle, we asked our readers to provide us with their opinions on this and here are the top two explanations our readers give:
1) Payback for Kanye West's "Famous" music video: It won't come as a surprise to know that some of our readers attribute the rapper's psychological breakdown to the highly controversial music video "Famous." In this video, inspired by Vincent Desiderio's 2008 painting titled Sleep, Kanye portrays his art beyond our wildest imaginations. We can see wax figures of Donald Trump, George Bush, Bill Cosby, Kanye, Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift, Amber Rose and Chris brown all laying next to each other. The video itself has been met with criticism by members of the general public as well as other public figures such as Lena Dunham. Others, such as artists and musicians, have praised the rapper's artistic ability in creating such a "masterpiece". Long story short, our readers think Kanye supposedly stepped on the wrong toes and now they're all after him. Seems kind of a stretch.....or not.

2) 2020 Presidential Claims: It is not news that in recent concerts, Kanye has been known for his fiery political rhetoric.Other readers believe that certain powerful people and readers might not have taken too kindly to Kanye's claims of running in the 2020 presidential elections. As such, these powers have come together and not only caused Kanye to have a mental breakdown, but to also cancel the remaining dates for the Saint Pablo Tour. Perhaps, some secret group of very powerful individuals believe Kanye might pose a threat eventually and have thus conjured an elaborate plan to thwart any such efforts. And according to them, if the first step of this plan was a psychological breakdown, who knows what could be next. Again, seems like a real stretch. But do tell us how you feel in the comments below.
