Rapper Kanye West opens up about his alcoholism but says he has stopped day drinking now

Kanye West has always raised many eyes surrounding various controversies. Controversies began all the way back in 2009 when West barged in at the MTV Video Music Awards. He interrupted Taylor Swift's speech on stage while holding a bottle of brandy in his hand.

 
Now in a recent interview with GQ magazine, Kanye has opened up about his road to alcoholism and day drinking. West is currently staying put in his house with his wife and supermodel Kim Kardashian along with all their kids. In the interview to GQ magazine West said, "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."
 
"That one statement is like a tattoo. I haven’t had a drink since I realised I needed to take it day by day, but I never owned up, or was even told, “Hey, you’re a functioning alcoholic, " he added.
 
Kanye also spoke about the reaction of his fans and the rest of the public. He 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.’
 
Kanye who is an outspoken Christian and believer of Jesus Christ said he no longer wants to commit sins against God. He added saying, "When you’re not in service to God, you can end up being in service to everything else."
