I'm sure most of you have heard of Joel Osteen and Lakewood Church which is here in Houston. I have never been to a service there but went many times before the Church bought it when it was an entertainment venue. I'm sure most of you have heard of Kayne West and his Sunday Services and his new album, Jesus is King. In the various newsfeeds, I read there is always something about Kayne or Kim Kardashian so I see just the blurbs.
At any rate, I pulled up Youtube yesterday to see what the bruha was about. Well, I nearly died when Kayne told Joel and the audience not to say anything because he was all about a stream of consciousness and comments - like Amen - caused him to lose his stream. Who tells Joel to be quiet at his own service?
I also thought it was interesting that Joel stood right next to Kayne on the stage. I wondered if it was to grab the mike from him if he went off on some tangent! Truthfully I only listened for about 3 minutes. Ok, maybe seconds. Kayne sounded so much like Muhammed Ali saying I am the greatest. Maybe it's an act or maybe he believes it, I don't know. I'm afraid I don't keep up with the young people's music anymore.
I think maybe he has an attention disorder in which he gets easily distracted. I had a friend once that couldn't have the tv on while trying to talk. Maybe that but then again, I've never been on a stage in front of gazillions of people so who am I to judge?
I guess my take would be that I'd rather see him dedicate himself to religion than of the other paths music stars might follow. I've also read that he dictated that his young daughter would no longer wear makeup. Hum. Then how is going to handle naked pictures of his wife being shared with the world? Now that, I think, will cause a big bruhaha. We'll see.
Hahaha. Just my own version of stream of consciousness.
More later ...
