Keen fans of Kanye West have been concerned that he takes medicine and have been wondering why. Finally, the truth has been revealed. Kanye West said he is on medication because of his bad experiences with the paparazzi. The Chicago hip-hop maestro, who has laid low for weeks after all the controversies he lit last year, talked about his medication when he encountered a photographer on January 24 (Tuesday).

The paparazzi menace

Kanye was with his wife Bianca Censori, a Yeezy architect, when paparazzi appeared and started filming them as they were leaving a Los Angeles training salon. Once the paparazzi saw him, Kanye walked over to him and asked to stop filming them because he considered doing so to be antagonistic.

The paparazzi begged Kanye, telling him he needed only a single shot, to which Kanye responded by saying, “No, you got the shot, but I’m saying…You don’t even know! You just jump up on people like this.”

Ye explained his experiences with the paparazzi to the cameraman, telling him they were why he took medicine.

“Do you know the first time I ever took medication, why it was? Because I got mad at paparazzi,” Kanye said. “You know which paparazzi it was? The same one that shot Britney Spears. My dad did photography for newspapers. It has to be some kind of balance, some kind of conversation.”

Kanye added, “I can’t live in California in my life like I’m some type of caged animal to be judged in front of the glass.”

Kanye suggests celebrities need compensation

He then asked the cameraman which channel he worked with. The cameraman said he works independently, providing his content to the media. Ye suggested that celebrities need compensation for their images taken by camera operators.

“The media doesn’t have a right to like, boom, pop up. We ain’t have no idea. And then I have no say-so over the shot,” he said. “Y’all find where we’re at, y’all take this photo — what percentage of the money do we get off of the photos?”

If Kanye’s suggestion comes to fruition, then celebrities would make a lot of money from their images used by various news channels.
