Kanye West tells televangelist Joel Osteen 'the devil has been distracting me for a long time


Kanye West made a highly anticipated appearance at televangelist Joel Osteen's mega church in Texas on Sunday where he opened up about his faith and his latest album. 

The 42-year-old rapper appeared at the Lakewood Church in Houston where he talked about his 'journey to his faith' for about 20 minutes before the crowd of 17,000. 

'I know God's been calling me for a long time and the devil has been distracting me for a long time,' West said when he took to the stage in a smart black suit.

The rapper opened up about his spiritual awakening, saying God gave him visions which inspired his gospel album and the creation of Sunday Service. 

'When I was in my lowest points, God was there with me and sending me visions and inspiring me. I remember sitting in the hospital at UCLA after having a breakdown and there's documentations of me drawing a church and writing about starting a church in the middle of Calabasas,' he said.
