American rapper Kanye West, most famously known for his songs such as Stronger, I Love it, Famous, among others, has now opened up about his struggle with alcoholism and made some startling revelations. In an interview with GQ, he shared that he would drink vodka and orange juice in the morning, and while he has not had a drink in some time, he referred to himself as a ‘functioning alcoholic’ in the past. He also partially blamed the Hollywood life and award shows for his alcoholism.
Kanye admitted about his struggles while speaking to GQ magazine. Dailymail quoted him saying, "Well, it’s good that we found out about all of those awards shows that partially led me to alcoholism. Whistle been blown, you know?" He further said "People have called me a crazy person, people have called me everything—but not a functioning alcoholic. And I would be drinking orange juice and Grey Goose in the morning." He then added that he finally took control of his habit.
"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, and I looked and thought, “Devil, you’re not going to beat me today,” Kanye West told GQ.
