Kanye took aim at Ariana earlier today

Kanye West has laid into Ariana Grande in a new Tweet, accusing her of using him to “promote a song.”

The rapper’s comments appear to hit back at Grande after she criticised him earlier this week over his ongoing feud with Drake. 

On Thursday (December 13), West posted a long series of Tweets insulting Drake, accusing him of being a bully and of mocking him.

Grande referenced the feud on Twitter, writing: “Guys, I know there are grown men arguing online rn but miley and I are dropping our beautiful, new songs tonight so if y’all could please jus behave for just like a few hours so the girls can shine that’d be so sick thank u.”

West has now responded, referring to his own mental health issues at length and accusing the star of using him to promote her new music.

West wrote: “I know Ariana said this to be cool and didn’t mean no harm but I don’t like even slightest level of slight commentary from someone I know loves and respects me.”

He continued: “All of this foolishness weighed on my mental health so you know I got love for you but until you’re ready to really make sure everyone’s ok don’t use me or this moment to promote a song.”

In response, Grande apologised and stressed that she had never intended to offend Kanye.

“With all due respect, i don’t need to use anyone to promote anything. period,” she tweeted on Saturday morning (December 15) in a since deleted post.

“i was making a comment ab what men were doing at the time vs. women. it was a joke which i understand now was probably insensitive. i apologize if i was in any way triggering and hope u feel well today.”

West elaborated on his beef with Drake some more, saying: “Drake verbally attacked Cudi when he was in the hospital and went at me after TMZ because I decided to release albums in June Is snowballed and he refused to meet with me but texted my mother in law and did sneak disses on peoples records that I consider family.”

He then later added: “Drake and Trav both love Ye more than anyone and I love those guys back. We love everyone.”

West went on to give a lengthy series of tweets about his struggles with mental health before updating fans about his upcoming music, saying: “I’m loving the new music I’ve been working on. 6 months off meds I can feel me again. Remember when dark fantasy came out I used to tweet a storm also.” He also revealed that Chance the Rapper “demanded” they record in Chicago and that the experience “reconnected” him with his “roots.”

Originally, West’s next album after ‘ye’, ‘Yandhi’ was planned for release earlier this year but was pushed back.

Speaking about his mental health issues, West said that “no one would ever choose to end up in a mental hospital and diagnosed with a mental disorder but god chose me to publicly go through this journey and it is beautiful.”

He added: “I am able to experience first hand how people who have mental health issues get written off by society. Don’t listen to him cause he’s crazy….”

“I don’t blame people for not knowing how to handle this that said we as a society will learn together.”
