“I think we all have wilderness [moments]," she said, reflecting on the year (2013) she first learned she had cancer. "We all have winters and they're actually necessary. Winter is necessary in the scope of seasons. A lot happens in a winter that can’t happen in a summer. Digging into the beauty of the wilderness — that was a hard chapter,” she added.

Kanye West says love is the strongest force in the universe TMZ PT 2
A portion of West’s TMZ interview that has not been highlighted much by the media was when he talked to Levin about his belief in God and the notion that love can conquer all. “Free love, it's the spirit," West explained to Levin when asked what is the root of everything the "Jesus Walk" emcee is trying to express. "If I say I love Dr. Jan Adams that performed my mother's final surgery, people don't accept forgiveness and love."
West's mother died after having cosmetic surgery in 2007, which was performed by Adams.
Levin admittedly said he doesn't believes people can love everyone. To which West looked at Levin and asked, "But does God want you to love everyone? Do you believe in God?"
"If you start thinking about love and start feeling love and thinking about forgiveness, then you can overcome things," West said. "I think love conquers all. I know from the bottom of my soul, of my gut, of my spirit and my subconscious that love is the strongest force in the universe and right now we need love."
In this episode we deal with the four kinds of Love mentioned in the Bible. Physical love, family love, friendship love, and Flawless love, you don't want to miss it.
