It's pretty obvious that Kanye West has a new album on the way. Why? Because he's in the media saying silly things once again.

This time, the rapper has been discussing his personal experience with Covid-19.

He told Forbes magazine in a bizarre interview that he had contracted the virus back in February. “Chills, shaking in the bed, taking hot showers, looking at videos telling me what I'm supposed to do to get over it," he said of his experience. "I remember someone had told me Drake had the coronavirus and my response was Drake can’t be sicker than me!”

He also dismissed the idea of a vaccine for the virus in comments that have raised many eyebrows on social media.

"It’s so many of our children that are being vaccinated and paralyzed… So when they say the way we’re going to fix Covid is with a vaccine, I’m extremely cautious," he said. "That’s the mark of the beast. They want to put chips inside of us, they want to do all kinds of things, to make it where we can’t cross the gates of heaven. I'm sorry when I say they, the humans that have the Devil inside them. And the sad thing is that, the saddest thing is that we all won’t make it to heaven, that there’ll be some of us that do not make it."

Riiiiiight, so.

West - who recently declared his intention to run for President of the USA  - insisted that he was serious. He will run under as an independent under the 'Birthday Party' banner ("Because when we win, it’s everybody’s birthday") and his running mate is a little-known preacher from Wyoming called Michelle Tidball. He also speaks about his decision not to support Trump, wearing the MAGA hat and his pro-life stance.

The ramblings of an attention-seeking narcissist, or the mission statement of the next US president? You decide...
