It's a big day for Kanye West. He's engaged. His Yeezus tour with the omnipresent Kendrick Lamar is hitting San Jose tonight. But there's still time in the day for the "genius" millionaire, who partners with brands like Nike and Louis Vuitton, to take on corporate culture, praise Christianity, and talk about why his voice has changed from Chicago streets to Kardashian sheets.
Kanye gave an interview on the JV Show, a San Francisco radio show, and he seemed pretty pleased with himself. Kanye's recent interviews have all shared two things in common: the interviewer fellates him throughout, while he fails to complete a coherent thought.
Everything leads to tangents that have little to do with the original point, and questions are brushed off with a "just being Kanye" statement that illuminates nothing.

Kanye says the reason he brought Jesus on stage is that Christianity is awesome; you can represent your God without fear of recourse, unlike some other religions that he doesn't explicitly mention.

Recently, a Vine has gone viral showing Kanye in an early interview with a drastically different inflection than the one he's been using in interviews now. There was a time when Kanye's outbursts were legendary, but he'd like to think his current incarnation is carefully calculated:
