Before he appeared on "Saturday Night Live" last night, Kanye West tweeted out to his fans that he was $53 million in personal debt.

1) And that doesn't include his student loans.

2) And he doesn't even own a newspaper.

3) And somewhere Taylor Swift smiled.

Kanye asked for prayers to help him overcome his debt problem, but we're guessing spending less money would help more. Another idea would be hitting up wife, Kim Kardashian, for a loan, seems as if they don't have joint checking.

Kanye has previously said that he lost around $16 million developing his Yeezy clothing line.

His new album, "The Life of Pablo," drops today. His new fashion line, Yeezy Season 3 was unveiled yesterday at Madison Square Garden. Who needs a simple runway show when you're rolling in dough, uh, debt.

Of course, since Kanye wants to run for president in 2020, it's also possible he's getting a head start on making things up.
