TV psychologist Dr. Phil has given his professional opinion on Kanye West’s Twitter rants and the diagnosis is: He’s just stupid.
The 65-year-old head doctor appeared as a guest on The Late Late Show with James Corden and said the controversial rapper is simply looking to stir up publicity with his constant tirades.
“You can’t be that wrong, that many times in a row, unless you’re working at it,” he said.
“You think he’s trying to cause a stir?” Corden made sure. “We’re talking about it aren’t we? I mean he just gets up, says something and we’re here talking about it,” Dr. Phil responded.
Corden’s questions undoubtedly followed after the 38-year-old rapper’s recent barrage of bizarre tweets regarding his $53 million debt, a messy feud with his ex Amber Rose and her husband Wiz Khalifa and even a campaign to get Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to give him $1 billion for his “ideas.”
The straight-talking doctor continued to slam Kanye for his use of social media as a tool to cause controversy. “We’re in a society now when people think you need to have an audience for everything,” He said. “We’re so narcissistic.”
“Now you say something incredibly stupid and they’re reading it in China in seconds. You can be stupid and get away with it,” he finished his expert analysis.
Expect a shrink bill in the mail, Kanye!
