Kendrick Lamar has told journalists that he does not use social media because it would interfere with his Christian beliefs.
The rapper, who is a devout Christian, says social media platforms would fuel his ego, instead of letting him focus on his God-given gifts.
He told the New York Times: “I’m not one of those dudes that be like ‘Oh, yeah, I know how good I am,’ but I also know the reason why I’m so good is because God’s blessed me with the talent to execute on the talent, and the moment that you start getting lost in your ego, that’s when you start going down.”
Earlier this year, Lamar made headlines for his controversial Glastonbury set that saw him wear a crown of thorns whilst repeatedly swearing and protesting the changes to abortion rights in the US.
Behind him, the screen bared the words “I am not your saviour”. Before closing the festival, he told the crowd “they judge you, they judged Christ.”
Some argued his performance encouraged more people to have a conversation about Jesus.
Others were offended by the set and his pro-choice stance.
