Kim Kardashian smiles uncomfortably as Kanye West tells Joel Osteen that he is the 'greatest artist that God has ever created'
Kanye West's Houston appearance caused waves and controversies on the internet but there's one aspect of the evening no one could ignore - Kim Kardashian's face.
Unconditional support to your spouse doesn't mean you cannot be slightly embarrassed because of them when they go a tiny bit extra. When that spouse is Kanye West, it can be a lot harder, perhaps. Kanye West's Houston appearance caused waves on the internet but there's one aspect of the evening no one could ignore - his wife Kim Kardashian's West face most of the evening.
West took the stage joined by megachurch pastor Joel Osteen as he said, "I know that God's been calling me for a long time and the Devil's been distracting me for a long time. When I was in my lowest point, God was there with me." He added that God helped him through tough times. "When I was in my lowest points, God was there with me and sending me visions and inspiring me," said West.
West being West, also made some controversial comments. Calling himself the greatest artist he said, "Jesus has won the victory because now the greatest artist that God has ever created is working for him."
The crowd cheered for West, as he pointed out that "All of that arrogance, and confidence and cockiness that y'all seen me use" is now being used for God. "Because every time I stand up I feel that I'm standing up and drawing a line in the sand and saying I'm here in service to God and no weapons armed against me shall prosper," he said.
He then went on to talk about all "business people" who had been stolen by the devil. "It's like the devil stole all the good producers, all the good musicians, all the good artists, all the good designers, all the good business people and said, 'you gotta come over and work for me'."
He also talked about how he needs to be more like his parents now that he had been married for five years. "As I now have a family, I'm 42 years old and married for five years, there's a blatant responsibility for me to become more like my mother who has gone to heaven and more like my father, who is working in building a water purification center in the Dominican Republic," he said.
Kim sitting at the front row in the audience with the couple's daughter North mustered an uncomfortable smile as the camera panned on them as the 42-year-old rapper mentioned them.
He also called strip clubs a form of sex trafficking. "They got posters advertising sex trafficking because if there’s an advertisement for a strip club, that is advertising sex trafficking," Ye explained, "At the end of the night, when they close up, the manager says, ‘How much traffic do we have?’” he asked.
Dressed in a conservative grey suit, the reality star and law student looked like she was trying hard to keep it casual for the cameras but seemed to look a little embarrassed by Kanye's enthusiasm on stage. In photos from the event, she's seen posing with daughter North a little away from Kanye as he grinned for the cameras.
