According to search engine “suggestions,” a very popular search term is “Kanye West net worth.” And sadly, for the hip-hop rapper, it’s way less than it was. Poor dude is only worth about $400 million now.
But don’t worry. Because fans want to make him a billionaire again.
Gotta get that Kanye West net worth back into the $B column.
But why do fans, who probably make less than a tiny fraction of what Mr. West makes, wanna donate to him? Yeah, according to an article I just read, they started GoFundMe pages for him.
It’s another one of the millions of crazy things that happen in this wacky world. But I’ve talked about this strange phenomenon before. People will give their money to millionaires and billionaires. But they won’t support their own family, friends, and neighbors.
Do those Kanye fans not know anyone who’d love their help to build their own music (or rap) career? And do those fans think that only millionaire and billionaire “artists” know how to create great music (or rap)?
I think it’s something else.
And I believe people feel that if they’re somehow connected to famous people, their own status is raised. And their own worth is increased.
But the truth is, the Kanye West net worth will only decrease. And so will his fame, influence, and status. It would be great if “Ye” was sincere in his mentions of Jesus. But I found some bullet points, about those mentions, that indicate otherwise. They said…
- In 2006 Kanye appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone as Jesus.
- In 2013 Kanye West brings fake Jesus out on stage.
- And he has an album called Yeezus and He even calls himself Yeezus
- He even says stuff like “I am a god.”
Plus, he’s got a serious case of potty mouth. And while cursing won’t necessarily keep you out of Heaven, it IS a window to your soul.
So, Kanye got some serious ‘splainin’ to do.
Thank goodness those GoFundMe efforts have failed miserably. I saw a report that said none of them had raised over $25. And it said that, on average, most of those pages had earned between 5 and 6 bucks.
But even if fans could raise enough money to make Kanye West a billionaire again, he’d still have a far less than zero net worth. That is, if he fails to acknowledge he is NOT God. And that there’s only One who can claim that title. And that Jesus, not Yeezus, is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
Until he does, Kanye is just another blind, naked, poor, villainous fool who can’t pay off his debts.
And if you trust the Creator of the universe to be your only way to eternal life, you are far richer than any millionaire or billionaire who trusts in himself (or herself, if the him part offends you).
