Kanye West wants to join the clergy as a reverend

23 March 2015, 08:03

Los Angeles - Kanye West is "becoming a reverend".

The Bound 2 hitmaker has reportedly began an online course in theology and religion so he is able to join the clergy.

A pal told the Daily Star on Sunday newspaper: "In the past year or two Kanye has become something of a born-again Christian. He used to go to church all the time as a kid but he lapsed badly as he got older.

"Now he's a father he's become more spiritual and a better person. He is even smiling a lot and thinks becoming a reverend will bring him closer to God."

The 37-year-old rapper - who has 21-month-old daughter North with wife Kim Kardashian West - will certainly not be afraid of addressing the wider issues in his sermons.

Recently he spoke up about racism, referring to it as a "dated concept" that is used to "separate and alienate" people from one another.

He said: "Racism is a dated concept. It's like a silly concept that people try to touch on to either... to separate, to alienate, to pinpoint anything. It's stupid.

"It's like a bouncing ball in a room with two cats, or something, when you don't feel like playing with a cat. Let them literally fight over the bouncing ball. And the bouncing ball has nothing, no purpose, anything other than that it bounces. That's racism. It's not an actual thing that even means anything."

The Stronger hitmaker also referred to himself as a "servant to God".

He added: "The more power that you have, the less you are a king; the more you are a servant, the more power you have...

"To position yourself as a servant, because that's all we are, we're servants to God. This is a Christian view of mine."
