Kanye West is causing controversy yet again – this time, because he asked people working on his upcoming album Jesus Is King not to have premarital sex. The rapper divulged that he had made the questionable request during an interview with Zane Lowe on his Apple Music Beats 1 show.

In the chat, Kanye also revealed that he was addicted to sex following the death of his mother in 2007, saying, ‘some people drown themselves in drugs, and I drown myself in my addiction: sex.’

In the same interview, he also referred to himself as ‘unquestionably, undoubtedly the greatest human artist of all time’.

Discussing the unusual demands placed on his team, he added, ‘There were times where I was asking people not to have premarital sex while they were working on the album. There were times where I went to people that were working on other projects and said, can you just work and focus on this? I thought if we could all focus and fast – families who pray together stay together.'

Recently, Kanye came under fire for telling his wife, Kim Kardashian, that her Met Gala outfit {:rel=nofollow}was 'too sexy'. Explaining that he no longer feels the need to have a trophy wife on his arm, he told Kim the night before her Met Gala appearance, ‘I went through this transition where being a rapper, looking at all these girls and looking at my wife, like, “Oh my girl needs to be just like the other girls showing their body off.”

‘I didn’t realize that that was affecting my soul and my spirit as someone who is married and the father of …about to be four kids,’ he continued. ‘A corset is a form of underwear, it’s hot, hot for who though? You are my wife and it affects me when pictures are too sexy.'

Quickly shutting him down, Kardashian called his comments ‘ridiculous’ and told him ‘you built me up to be this sexy person with confidence and all this, and just because you’re on a journey and transformation doesn’t mean I’m in the same spot with you.'
