Like many talented artists, West said he was funneling his pain into his music, and despite the various styles he’s adopted over the past nine years, religion has been a consistent topic in his personal and professional life.

Before leaving for Fashion Week in the City of Light with Kim Kardashian , the Yeezus rapper went ballistic on paps staked out in his driveway, calling them “bloodsucking mosquitoes!” But when photogs caught him with him in Paris, he actually praised them! “I like how you guys got total respect for yourselves and respect for the people that you photograph and you also take time off,” Kanye said. “At 8 o’clock, you’re not around people’s houses, so I just really appreciate that and respect that.
