Kanye West claims that he & # 39; like Jesus & # 39; suffers as a result of social media, which accuses the apps of sex addiction and the harassment of married men.
The rapper, 42, focused on women – such as his wife Kim Kardashian – who use the platforms to share spicy snaps, suggesting that these are images they hadn't released & # 39; if the apps didn't exist.
The self-confident sex addict said he had previously paid someone to buy pornography on his behalf when he was younger to see the kind of images he now sees on social media.
Spoken in an interview on Beats 1 on Apple Music, the & # 39; named Christian innovator & # 39; the apps the & # 39; modern cigarettes & # 39; because of their addictive properties.
Kanye West has claimed that he & # 39; like Jesus & # 39; suffers as a result of social media, accusing the apps of feeding sex addiction and tormenting married men
Kanye has stated that he is a born-again Christian and is currently promoting a new album called Jesus Is King (and a movie of the same name), both full of religious messages.
But although he has been called blasphemy in the past because he has compared himself to God and Jesus – see his song I Am a God on the 2013 Yeezus album – Kanye continues to draw parallels between himself and a greater power.
"I suffer – and I appreciate the suffering because we can feel a little bit what Jesus felt when we suffer, but social media make me suffer", he said in the new interview.
& # 39; I am bothered by that and by saying this aloud, I am sure there are other married men who suffer in the same way and who are happy to hear me say, "Oh ya, I am suffering."
Asked why this specifically relates to married men, Kanye explained: & # 39; Because social media particularly encourage women to publish content they would not have posted … & # 39;
The rapper, 42, focused his suffering on women who – like his wife Kim Kardashian in the photo – use the platforms to share spicy snaps that they hadn't turned off & # 39; if the apps didn't exist
Interviewer Zane Lowe then wondered if the recording artist was referring to his sex addiction, to which he replied: & yes, I am treating my addiction.
& # 39; When I was younger and wanted to see something like that, I had to pay someone older to go to 7/11 and buy it. & # 39;
Kanye said his addiction started watching porn when he found a Playboy magazine at the age of five and it has influenced & # 39; almost every choice I made for the rest of my life & # 39 ;.
The comments are somewhat consistent with the fact that his wife Kim, who has 150 million Instagram followers, often shares sexy, suggestive photos on her page.
But Kanye also focused his renewed religious zeal on his wife and encouraged her to meet his newly adopted ideas about modesty.
In an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians that was first aired on October 13, he criticized the revealing, tight-fitting Mugler dress that Kim was wearing to the Met Gala earlier this year.

& # 39; Just like the corset, underwear, all that atmosphere, I feel like I just went through this transition from rapper and watched all these girls, & # 39; said Kanye in the episode.
& # 39; I didn't know it affected my soul and mind, & # 39; he went on and added that he had no problem with Kim wearing revealing clothes.
& # 39; You are my wife and it affects me if photos are too sexy, & # 39; he told her.
& # 39; A corset is like a form of underwear. It's hot. It's like, it's hot for who, though? & # 39; he said.
Kim shot back in the episode and told Kanye that he was very & # 39; very anxious & # 39; was and & # 39; negative energy & # 39; particularly because he brought up the matter before the Met Gala.
& # 39; You have built me into a sexy person and have faith! Just because you are traveling and you are in a transformation does not mean that I am in the same place with you, & she said.
Kanye & # 39; s ideas about modesty for women also apply to his children, or at least the daughters North, six and Chicago, 21 months.
He and Kim also share sons Saint, three and Psalm, five months.
Kim told me E! News this month that although North has started playing makeup, Kanye has now banned cosmetics until she is older.
& # 39; North is trying to get the make-up in, but she is being blocked because her father has stopped all make-up for her until she is a teenager, & # 39; she said. & # 39; It's a big discussion, a big fight in the household right now, but it's what's best. & # 39;
& # 39; I think as a parent you just learn and find out while you go and we realized we didn't really want her to wear makeup at a young age, but she sees her mother applying lipstick and lip gloss. & # 39 ;
Kanye himself said that he had also pulled crop tops off the table.
& # 39; A smart man can turn around and say that I now think something else. I don't think this is because it's the culture, & he said.
& # 39; I don't think North crop should wear tops just because I was wearing a slip dress when she was two years old. & # 39;
"I don't think North crop should wear tops just because I was wearing a slip dress when she was two years old," he said
Kanye's new ideas about women's clothing have been criticized by fans, especially fans who call the rapper a hypocrite because they have been encouraging Kim & # 39; s sexy image for years.
He even included Kim in his music videos in different states of undress – and before that he cast other scantily clad women such as Teyana Taylor in his videos.
But not everyone condemns him quickly. In fact, he seems to have found new fans in Christian fundamentalists Jinger Duggar (25) and Jeremy Vuolo (32), stars of TLC & # 39; s Counting On.
The couple was present at Kanye & Sunday's Service this weekend, and then Jeremy shared a favorable in-depth analysis of Kanye's religious awakening.
& # 39; I prayed about it and clearly prayed for Kanye, & # 39; Jeremy said about Kanye & # 39; s spiritual journey.
& # 39; Now that he is dropping his album, it is interesting to listen to it … but it is also interesting to see many responses. Some people are strongly against it.
& # 39; The claim that Kanye (now) makes is that he has been regenerated, meaning that he has been born again, & # 39; he said.

Jeremy warned others not to judge or look at a sinner like Kanye West and (say): "Jesus could never save him" or "How dare you claim that Jesus would save him, he is still the same old dirty sinner. " "& # 39;
He also praised the & # 39; theologically healthy & # 39; men who Kanye & # 39; disciples & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Kanye surrounds himself with good people, & # 39; he added. & # 39; So that gives me confidence.
& # 39; It encourages me to see that Kanye not only claims to be born again, but that he surrounds himself with really good people who are theologically healthy. & # 39;
Jeremy in particular praised the & # 39; stunning & # 39; musical performance.
"It struck me as an outburst of praise from a trapped soul that was released," he said.
& # 39; I liked it. I honestly think, from an artistic, from a musical perspective, it was one of the greatest works of art, of musical art, that I have ever seen live. & # 39;
Kanye played songs from his new album, Jesus is King, along with a choir on his Sunday Service at The Forum in LA on Sunday

In the new Beats 1 interview, Kanye also praised Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and called him his favorite founder.
Kanye called Dorsey & incredibly smart, a visionary & # 39; and praised the history of Dorsey as founder, named Twitter and Square.
& # 39; Jack Dorsey has created an app that allows someone to buy that stock for a dollar & # 39 ;, West said about the Dorsey pilot app for trading stock for a dollar.
The songwriter also said that Dorsey was one of the first people to invest in him early in his career.
He spoke about the different views between founders and investors, and his respect for founders.
& # 39; You must honor living founders, those are the over-over-great-grandfathers of what is being built.
During the discussion of founders, West made it clear that Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, was not among his favorites.
& # 39; I will always remember every encounter and interaction I have had with Jack Dorsey, and I will always remember my encounters and interactions with Mark Zuckerberg – and they have been completely different, & # 39; he said.
