Troubled producer Kanye West premiered his movie/music video "Runaway" at the Harmony Gold theater in Los Angeles yesterday.
The "Jesus Walks" rapper told the audience of tastemakers and power hitters that there were times when he contemplated suicide. But he said he changed his mind because others don't have a voice as loud as his, and he wanted to speak for them.
The 33-year-old said, "there were times that I contemplated suicide. I will not give up on life again."
He also revealed his 3rd single "All of the Lights" off his upcoming album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
The track features 11 artists, including Rihanna, Alicia Keys, The Dream, John Legend, Elton John, Kid Cudi, Charlie Wilson, and others. Kanye described "Lights" as "completely seamless and ghetto as f*ck!"
Yesterday I told you that Kanye took to this Twitter page to brag about his graphic album cover being "banned in the U.S.A." It turns out the album's cover is only banned at discount retailers Walmart and Target in the US.
