It’s no secret that Kanye West sees himself as a God, so I guess it was just a matter of time until a religion formed around him.
Yeezianity describes itself as “an anonymous group who believes that the one who calls himself Yeezus is a divine being who has been sent by God to usher in a New Age of humanity“.
While this may sound creepy and cult-like, Noisey interviewed Yeezianity’s anonymous founder to get to the bottom of it:
“First question: Is Yeezianity for real?”
“I believe in what it is, and that’s real. But is there a real organized religion behind it? There is not. At first, I thought about putting on that it was—I thought that’d be more viral or whatever—but I’m not going to be able to uphold that.”
“So you’re not approaching Kanye as a ‘god,’ per se, but you’re instead approaching him as someone who inspires you?”
“Exactly. He’s a god. You’re a god. Why Yeezus is the figure is because Kanye is the one who believes that the hardest, so that’s why he’s the model for behavior.”
