Kanye West's Talk With '12 Years a Slave' Director Steve McQueen Reveals Truth Behind "Bound 2"

Perhaps Taylor Swift had an extra-rustic tea party with the gals to get over Kanye West interrupting her during her 2009 MTV VMA acceptance speech. She's also used humor — and homemade jam for Ed Sheeran — to cope with her true feelings about the incident. However, the world's greatest gift from God one-upped her Mason jar of feelings in Interview's Feb. 2014 issue, where Kanye West has a lengthy conversation with Steve McQueen, the 12 Years A Slave director, and says that all he needed to get over the hullabaloo was simple — the Lord, booze, and "a lot of sex."

McQueen asked how West "mentally, physically, and spiritually" dealt with all of the negativity and fallout from the press after he yanked the mic from Swift onstage and said that Beyonce's video deserved to win instead.

West replied:

West, ever the shrinking violet, also informed readers that if they were confused by his elaborate masks he wore during his Yeezus tour or didn't really get the concept of Kim Kardashian naked on a motorcycle in his "Bound 2" video, the joke is really on them.

McQueen additionally asked West if he's ever lonely as a musician.

You do you, Kanye, you do you.
