Kanye West to address bipolar diagnosis with David Letterman


Kanye West is set to open up about life with bipolar disorder in a new interview with veteran TV personality David Letterman.

The beloved U.S. comedian has unveiled the line-up for season two of his Netflix series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, and Kanye will be one of the highlights.

In a two-minute trailer for the upcoming episodes, the rap superstar explains his infamous rants are often the result of his medical condition, which he went public with last year (2018).

“When you’re bipolar, you have a potential to ramp up, and it could take you to a point where you start acting erratic, as TMZ would put it,” he said, after taking Letterman on a tour of his fashion warehouse.

In addition to Kanye, Letterman has also enjoyed sit-downs with Ellen DeGeneres, comedienne Tiffany Haddish, philanthropist Melinda Gates, and British Formula 1 ace Lewis Hamilton.

The next season of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman premieres on Netflix on May 31, 2019.
