Kanye West is so interesting that even stories of random encounters with him can be fascinating little windows into his humanity. What’s he really like, away from the paparazzi and Kanye-approved version us commoners get? Well, for Radiohead guitarist Ed O’Brien, he was pretty apathetic, until he hit 'Ye with a topic that really piqued his interest.
Anyone who’s been paying attention since “Jesus Walks” knows ‘Ye is fascinated by the topic of God, particularly how themes of Christianity fit into his life. He opened his latest album proclaiming a “God dream,” famously annointed himself a God on Yeezus and in his tormented 808s era lamented Jesus pieces not brining him peace. So when O’Brien told him that most British musicians don’t believe in God, Kanye finally took interest in an otherwise tumbleweed-worthy conversation.
