Kanye West and his big mouth have sparked controversy by claiming that his life as a multi-million dollar earning touring artist is like being a police officer or a soldier at war. 

The comments were made to SaturdayNightOnline, when he said that he has been 'risking his life' during his current Yeezus tour, which includes a massive prop mountain and a Jesus impersonator 

"Like, I'm just giving of my body on the stage," he said. "I'm putting my life at risk, literally! When I think about when I'm on the 'Can't Tell Me Nothing' and 'Coldest Winter' moment, like that mountain goes really, really high. And if I slipped...  You never know. And I think about it."

West continued: "I think about my family and I'm like, wow, this is like being a police officer or something, in war or something."

No Kanye. No, it isn't. 

He added: "Like you literally [sic] going out to do your job every day, knowing that something could happen. Something can happen to you."

In another baffling moment of insane delusion in the same interview, he compared his fiance Kim Kardashian to Marilyn Monroe.

"I have a love-hate relationship with the paparazzi, but actually I love them because they are empowering us," he said. "They are empowering us over Vanity Fair that want to say that Kate Upton is Marilyn Monroe. Kate Upton ain't Marilyn Monroe, Kim is Marilyn Monroe. You know that. She was controversial; she's controversial.

"This is the reality. I'm living inside of a dream world."
