Kanye West Corey Taylor

In a new interview with Loudwire, SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor discussed his thoughts on Kanye West running for president of U.S.

When asked “What you think of Kanye West running for president but really more importantly the world critiquing his mental health,” Corey responded (as transcribed by Metal Addicts): “I mean obviously people know that I’ve had my issues with Kanye for a long time, but I’m watching this now very closely. I mean at first I remember when he first announced this in that weird rant that he did on MTV when he was given a thanks for showing up award.

“When he had first announced it then I laughed, but then seeing this… This behavior that is happening right now — that worries me. That’s not the normal behavior of someone who is… That seems like someone who’s having a mental break, to be honest that sounds like someone who is like borderline. I don’t want to say it’s borderline personality disorder, but it almost feels bipolar.

“When you have a big sign like that and you exacerbate it with fame and money and all of these different things, people have a right to be concerned,” Corey continued. “He’s got a family, he’s got people who care about him and worry about him. It’s one thing to laugh about it from afar, it’s another thing to watch a breakdown happening in real time, especially with someone who is loved by so many people and is actually, a lot of his actions are taken very seriously.

“So when he says some of that sh*t — people take him seriously. It’s like Trump. People take what he says very seriously, and that’s a danger, so we have to be very, very careful and watch what’s being said.

He added: “I just hope he gets the help he needs, let’s put it that way.”

Corey Taylor will release his debut solo album, CMFT, on October 2 via Roadrunner Records.
