We all know Kanye West is a different kind of guy to say the least. He just threw one of his Grammys in the toilet and peed on it. Now we’re hearing that during a series of interview with the New York Times, Kanye admitted to some off the wall things. In a series of text messages Kanye sent to Times reporters, he sent statistics about abortion rates among black women followed by saying he’s not trying to ban abortion, just prevent it:

“You can’t do that. I don’t want to ban or stop or point fingers at anything.” Instead he pledged “stipends for families that need support, creating orphanages that are really high-level desirable for people to go to, and the redesign of communities and cities in general to be supporting of families,” West told the paper when speaking by phone.

Kanye is so committed to reducing abortion rates that he asked his campaign staff to refrain from “fornicating” outside of marriage, people aiding his candidacy told the paper.
