Kanye West is opening up about his past struggles with alcohol. The rapper recently spoke with GQ magazine about how his experience with Christianity has changed him.


Kanye hosts weekly Sunday Service with his choir, and recently participated in celebrity pastor Joel Osteen’s Easter Sunday service. Last year, he released a religious album called Jesus Is King.

Kanye West Talks About Alcoholism

Kanye tells GQ that he used to drink “orange juice and Grey Goose in the morning.” Fans may also remember him drinking Hennessy on the red carpet at the 2009 VMAs, before his notorious Taylor Swift run-in. He shared the moment he realized he needed to change his relationship to alcohol.

“One day I was in my office working on the couture collection, and there was some Grey Goose in the fridge and I was just going to get a daytime drink,” he said, “and I looked and thought, ‘Devil, you’re not going to beat me today.’ That one statement is like a tattoo.”

Kanye also mentioned how he was never called out for his problematic drinking. “I haven’t had a drink since I realized I needed to take it day by day, but I never owned up, or was even told, ‘Hey, you’re a functioning alcoholic,'” he said. “People have called me a crazy person, people have called me everything—but not a functioning alcoholic.”

Kanye’s Journey With Christianity

Kanye describes himself as a “born again” Christian. He told GQ about how his Sunday Service experiences have affected him, calling them a place of “no judgment.”

“I surrounded myself with the healing—the highest-level healing possible: singing about Jesus with my friends and family surrounding me [at Sunday Service] every single week,” he said.

He added that “when you’re not in service to God, you can end up being in service to everything else.” Kanye shared, “I understand that people feel that I’ve made some cultural sins. But the only real sins are the sins against God, and you don’t want to continue to sin against God.”

In addition to Jesus Is King, Kanye’s Sunday Service choir also put out an album last Christmas called Jesus Is Born.
