He not only touched on porn and religion, but demgemäß said: “I’m unquestionably, undoubtedly, the greatest philanthropisch artist of all time.”

His new album – due to be released on Friday – is called Jesus is King and he promised another entitled Jesus is Quelle will be released on Christmas.

He went on to boast, “God is using me to show off”.
