Kanye West's TimesTalk on mental health with The Breakfast Club host Charlamagne tha God has been canceled. The event was scheduled to take place on at New York’s Town Hall on Wednesday night, Oct. 17, but Charlamagne announced the cancellation via Instagram on Monday.
“Normalizing being mentally healthy is a conversation that I really wanted to have with Kanye because he’s been so vocal about his own mental health struggles,” Charlamagne wrote. “Unfortunately I think to have that conversation with him right now would not be productive and a total distraction from the point of the convo which is to eradicate the stigma of mental health especially in the black community.- ME.”
Ye opened up about his bipolar disorder earlier this year, famously putting "I hate being bi-polar its awesome" on the cover of Ye and rapping about it on "Yikes."
That's my third person
That's my bipolar shit, nigga what?
That's my superpower, nigga ain't no disability
I'm a superhero! I'm a superhero!
Aside from Charlamagne's post, it's unclear exactly why the talk was canceled. It could be a scheduling conflict, as Kanye is in Uganda sharing cuts from Yandhi with the country's president, or maybe Charlamagne decided to pull the plug after Kanye's surreal meeting with Trump last week.
