HOLLYWOOD—On Halloween, Kanye West said he was “distancing” himself from politics. He turned to Twitter, to let his fans know he was being used to spread messages he did not believe in. West has been a vocal supporter of President Trump, however, this decision appears to be centered around a campaign known as Blexit. The campaign is run by a conservative commentator Candace Owens which encourages African-Americans to quit the Democratic party.
She claimed the musician had designed clothing for the campaign, something which the rapper has now denied. The rapper tweeted: “My eyes are now wide open. I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative.” It seems Kanye West intends to step away from politics altogether now. Politics and music don’t mix, that well.
West has an estimated 28.7 million followers on Twitter, where he wrote: “I support creating jobs and opportunities for people who need them the most. I support prison reform, I support common-sense gun laws that will make our world safer. I support those who risk their lives to serve and protect us and I support holding people who misuse their power accountable.”
It’s not the first time, the rapper, who wants to be referred to as Ye, has had to clear up his political beliefs. Earlier this year he came under fire for saying that the 13th Amendment of the Constitution, which brought an end to slavery, should be abolished – a statement that he later clarified. Apparently he meant to write “amend.”
His performance on the comedy sketch show “Saturday Night Live” a few weeks ago sparked outrage and amusement in equal measure. The 41-year-old, who is married to Kim Kardashian, wore a hat with Donald Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again” and apparently gave an unscripted, off-air rant in support of the president. Excerpts filmed by the audience and shared on social media show the rapper discussing his support for President Trump, his pledge to run for president in 2020 and the need for a “dialogue not a diatribe.”
As we all know, West has been very upfront about his support for President Trump. The pair have met several times discussing issues including employment and criminal justice reform. He had numerous stars including Snoop Dogg, T.I., and John Legend criticize him for his meeting with President Trump. He ended his series of tweets by saying: ” I believe in love and compassion for people seeking asylum and parents who are fighting to protect their children from violence and war.” I would like to thank my family, loved ones, and community for supporting my ACTUAL beliefs and my vision for a better world.”
While West was tweeting, his wife Kim Kardashian West was thanking Victoria’s Secret for sending them the runway looks and real wings to borrow for the night as she dressed like an angel. Her sisters Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie were alongside. Kanye’s sister-in-law, the self-made billionaire Kylie Jenner surprised her mom, Kris Jenner, on October 29, with a red Ferrari 488 ahead of her 63rd birthday on November 5. The car retails for $250k.
“488 For The Queen,” she captioned in a video on Instagram, with her mom Kris behind the wheel. Kylie drove the Ferrari over to her mom’s house in Calabasas.
“I’m on my way to my mom’s house to surprise her with her birthday gift. I’ve had this for the last month and I’m so excited to finally be giving it to her,” she said on Instagram. Kris, who looked like she had just woke up, donning a star-patterned onesie, was called out to the driveway, where her youngest daughter was waiting for her anxiously.
“Happy Birthday! Yay!” the Kylie Cosmetics founder screamed. Jenner could barely compose herself, she was full of emotions and tears were forming in her eyes. The sleek, red Ferrari featured a clack interior and was decorated with a white bow, she finally hugged her dream car. Kris and her boyfriend Corey Gamble tested the car’s engine power. Beautiful and extravagant gift, but I’m sure well-deserved, after all, she oversees all the business ventures, which have turned out very successful.
