Kanye West’s Times Talk on mental health cancelled, “would not be productive”
Kanye West was scheduled for a Times Talk about mental health with Charlamagne Tha God at NYC’s Town Hall this Wednesday (10/17), but Charlamagne now says the talk has been cancelled because “I think to have that conversation with him right now would not be productive.” Here’s his full statement:
Normalizing being mentally healthy is a conversation that I really wanted to have with Kanye because he’s been so vocal about his own mental health struggles. Unfortunately I think to have that conversation with him right now would not be productive and a total distraction from the point of the convo which is to eradicate the stigma of mental health especially in the black community.
Kanye recently met with Donald Trump at the White House. Today, he and Kim Kardashian reportedly met with President of Uganda Yoweri K. Museveni while in Africa, where he is reportedly recording his new album YANDHI.
