Word on the street is that Kanye West’s upcoming album is titled Yeezus. While some have paid no attention to West’s alleged new album title and dubbed it as another one of his many cries for attention, others have taken offense to the tile, expressing that they find it blasphemous that he’s comparing himself to Jesus Christ. One of those people happens to be actress Candace Cameron-Bure, who’s widely known for her childhood role as DJ Tanner on 90′s sitcom Full House. While promoting her latest movie,Finding Normal, the 37-year-old mom of three stopped by Shade 45 to chat with Sway Calloway and his co-host Heather. During her interview, she was asked what she thought of Kanye’s album title and let’s just say, homegirl did not hold back.
On Kanye’s new album title Yezus:
“That is way too close…It totally bugs me. I have issues with that.
“There’s a million other names out there … And you could have chosen one that is not one letter off from Jesus. I mean, that’s just a little too close. Come on.
“He’s actually comparing himself to Jesus? Really?! Should any of us be doing that?! Maybe you should change your name to ‘Uda!’”
On feeling that Kanye should be more humble:
“I think it’s more, it comes from a humility point of view. That I would be humbled enough for what Jesus did for me that I don’t want to in any way elevate myself or put myself side by side.
“Because I’m humbled by his gratitude.”
On Jay-Z calling himself “Hova:”
“HOVA for Jehova is also way too close. It bugs me. It totally bugs me.”
As of right now, Kanye’s new album title is still a rumor. According to Rolling Stone, Kanye’s site posted a pre-order option for the album, but quickly took it back down. By the looks of the artwork that was briefly displayed, the album will be called Yeezus. The cover appears to depict Kanye’s beloved Jesus piece all melted and distorted inside of a cracked CD case.
