West, 41, has been nicknamed Ye for some time and used the moniker as the title for his eighth album, which was released in June.

Kanye West is undoubtedly oneof the most polarizing personalities in the industry, and somehow always manages to get the masses talking. From referring to himself as Yeezus to his latest move, announcing his name change to Ye, celebville is always ready to find out what his next move is

Kanye West is insignificant, nothing more than a self absorbed celebrity drunk on publicity. Anyone who cares what he calls himself or validates celebrity hubris by discussing celebrity click bait ought to be ashamed of themselves.

I think Mr. West’s keen theological insight may have failed him, considering the Bible was not originally written in English

I think it’s a cheap and lazy publicity stunt, not something that really surprises me coming from somebody like him.

I'm a little bit disappointed that people are actually falling for it, but other than that I’ve got no opinion. Frankly, I have more important things to spend my time caring about

Ye’ is just an old English term for ‘you’ and it doesn’t have any deep spiritual significance.

Utter indifference. And I bet it won’t last, just like when Prince became a symbol for a while.

Kanye West is a very mentally sick man with deep psychological issues.

Kanye West is delusional. Not Spiritual. He follows a god, but not from the Holy Bible, God the Father

The most common word is “and”. “Ye” comes in 40th place in KJV.

Maybe he should publish a new translation, Kanye’s Justified Version, where “ye” is the most common word. After all, narcissism is fashionable these days.
