Kanye West shared his controversial view on slavery, his opioid addiction and how much he loves US President Donald Trump on TMZ Live overnight

After sharing a slew of his thoughts on Twitter last week, Kanye didn't stop for breath before joining TMZ Live in their newsroom Tuesday morning US time (overnight in Australia) to open up about his opioid addiction, his love of President Trump, his plastic surgery and his highly controversial view on slavery.

In the first clip shared by TMZ Live Kanye commands the newsroom to listen saying, "Two days before I was in the hospital, I was addicted to opioids. I had plastic surgery because I was trying to look good for y'all. Because I didn't want y'all to call me fat like y'all called Rob at the wedding."

He goes on to detail the quantity of pills he's been taking and blaming the opioids for his recent Twitter tirade, finishing with, "We are drugged out. We are following other people's opinions. We are controlled by the media and today it all changes." Watch the clip here:

The second TMZ Live clip opens with a TMZ reporter asking what message West was sending with his 'Make American Great Again' cap tweet, West responds with, "I just LOVE Trump, that's my boy. If you look at rappers, like a video of Snoop Dogg loving Trump... Trump is one of raps' favourite people."

Then he segues into slavery saying, "When you hear about slavery for 400 years, that sounds like a choice. Like you was there for 400 years and it was all y'all?"

Also on Tuesday (US time) West sat down with radio host Charlamange Tha God for an in-depth interview where he spoke about his mental breakdown, which he calls a "breakthrough" and how he felt "hurt" when Jay-Z and Beyoncé didn't attend his wedding to Kim Kardashian.
