When the 405 freeway gets to be too much, take to the skies. James Corden welcomed Kanye West to “The Late Late Show” Monday, when the rapper-turned-gospel artist welcomed the CBS host to his gigantic airplane. This one, the setting for the first ever “Airpool Karaoke,” comes complete with a 100-person choir.
West spoke with Corden about his newfound relationship with God. The “Jesus Walks” emcee said he believes the higher power is “using me to show off.”
“Last year, I made $115 million and still ended up $35 million in debt,” West said. “This year, I looked up and I just got $68 million returned to me on my tax returns.”
“People say, ‘Oh don’t talk about these numbers,'” he continued. “No, people need to hear that someone that had been put into debt by the system talk about these kind of numbers now that they’re in service to Christ.”
That led Corden to ask, “So you think your awakening — your spiritual awakening — is part of-”
“My success,” West finished the question. “Absolutely. [God’s] showing off. He’s just showing out. Yeezy worth $3 billion. It’s the No. 1 Google search brand in the world.”
“Kanye West works for God,” the “Jesus Is King” creator explained his relationship with the actual Creator.
Sounds like a pretty fruitful gig if you can get it.
