    Is Kanye West an Insane maniac, and does he have a mental problem?

    Recently, West made the news for disrespecting his ex girlfriend Amber Rose. Not to mention, he degraded Taylor Swift on his latest album, "The Life of Pablo" I find Kanye West actions to be inappropriate and stupid. What do you think? Share your thoughts!

    I think Kanye West subscribes to the old philosophy:
    "There is no such thing as (bad) publicity! If they're not talking about you it means you're not relevant anymore."
    Ironically some people feel true artists are allowed to be "odd" have quirks or color outside of lines when it comes to how they conduct themselves.
    Arrogance, being avant garde or a nonconformist has traditionally been tolerated by society when they "believe" someone is a "genius"
    It's been reported early on Steve Jobs founder of Apple Computers use to show up to business meetings in bare feet.
    He was once asked about conducting marketing surveys to determine what products to make. He said:
    "People don't know what they want until we tell them what they want."
    It's not uncommon for people like Kayne West, Steve Jobs, or Muhammad Ali to be known as polarizing people who are hated as much as they are loved. They don't care what others think.
    This political season we're witnessing Donald Trump and his ego defy conventional wisdom by saying/doing things no politician ever has!

    The definition of sanity is defined by the majority, to quote Larry Niven.
    To be very creative and innovative requires being far from the norm. And some of the most successful geniuses like Nikola Tesla were truly crazy.
    But this was why you had the old joke, the difference between eccentric and crazy is money. If you make enough money for it, you're not crazy but eccentric.
    Kanye may be far from the norm on thoughts and behavior to be classified as normally sane, but he's made enough money to merely be eccentric.

    Kanye West clearly suffers from some form of pathological narcissism, which is probably what drives his need to always be in the press, no matter how terrible that publicity is.
