Kanye West strikes the public as a type of guy who doesn’t regret anything in life. His ego is just that big. Thus, when news circulated that Kanye expressed his biggest regret in life, clearly we were interested in what that may have been.
According to The HuffingtonPost, West put away his theatrics and demonstrative behavior for a moment to break it down with his fans while performing at Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun Casino last Friday (February 21). It was positioned to be a moment where the larger-than-life star got real with his audience and perhaps showed a little bit of vulnerability. Addressing the crowd West said,
“These past 10 years have been amazing. There’s been some ups and downs. I made some mistakes and I’ve made some accomplishments. There’s only one thing I regret. There’s only one thing I wish I could change out of everything that’s ever happened. I wish that my mother could’ve met my daughter.”
West was raised by his single mother, Donda, from age three. There have been several stories that have discussed how close the two were. She died in 2007 from complications from cosmetic surgery, paired with other medical issues.
Surely, West funded the cosmetic surgery and we can understand that that is the number one thing that upsets Kanye in his life. Anyone who has lost a parent too early would most likely echo the same thing, but to say that he only regrets that pretty much restores the image that we’ve always had of Kanye.
