0:23 PT – Kanye West and Joel Osteen had plenty of time to chat at Lakewood Church in Houston – and one of the big events was that they beat Joel and his reputation in the Christian community.
The rapper-producer noted that Joel was responsible for leading thousands upon thousands of thousands on the right path of Christianity, and that alone … You say the guy should be praised more than criticized for everything he's in Does God's name.
They also talked a lot more about it – they touched his upbringing in the church and explained that he found it quite boring to go to Sunday service as a child … though his parents were staunch believers and brought the family three times a week to a mega church to Chicago.
He also discussed his 2016 Nervous Breakdown and how he felt afterwards … to have to move away most people in his inner circle because they were not real Christians, and it was just Men who were committed to the almighty dollar.
Kanye made fun of it by saying he was the greatest artist God ever created … and now he worked for the man upstairs again – instead of working for the devil, which he believes that most of his contemporaries do now.
There was a lot more, but all in all … it was a pretty moving interaction that Ye and Joel shared on stage Kanye West (19459013) joins the eagerly awaited conversation with Pastor (19459021) Joel Osteen (19459021) 19459013) at Lakewood Church in Houston and sinking in here I live and stream the whole thing.
TMZ has told the story … Kanye and Joel have been talking on the phone since Ye committed themselves to God, and all of that led to Kanye and Kim this weekend on the way to H-Town.
We have learned that Kanye will speak to Joel about his journey in the rediscovery of the religion at 11 o'clock local time. There will be another service on Sunday evening at 19.00, where Kanye's now famous Sunday service with a choir of about 120 people will be performed. We will also stream that live.
As we reported, Ticketmaster distributed free tickets for the 19 o'clock service, but there were problems with Scalper .
Kim is also in Houston and is expected to appear at Lakewood Divine Service. On Saturday, Kim, Saint and North hit an ice rink at the Galleria in Houston. 19659016]
