Kanye West, a person who refuses to stay out of the spotlight, told a crowd of people at his San Jose concert that although he didn’t vote in the election, he would have voted for Donald Trump if he had. Understandably, there were mixed reactions from the crowd. There were a ton of boos, but there were also fans in the crowd who showed their support for the statement and for the President-elect.
Honestly, I am not surprised in any way that Kanye went on a rant about how he would have voted for Trump. Although there is no record of this anywhere on the internet, I did tell some close friends that I thought this was something Kanye would say. The truth of the matter is that it’s such a perfect Kanye quote. It’s a statement that’s surprising, divisive, and puts Kanye in a position that’s completely different than every single one of his peers. And yes, Kanye, you have peers.
In my opinion, this is just something he said to get a rise out of people. Unless it’s giving him press or controversy, Kanye’s not going to care about it. What you see is what you get, and what you see is someone who wants to remain unpredictable. Remember this unpredictable Kanye?
Well, he’s gone now. This is the new Kanye. The Kanye who only cares about himself. But you can bet that none of his fans are really going to care about this. In fact, the ones tweeting about how backward he’s become are going to be the same fools who line up on November 23 to buy the new Yeezy 350 V2s.
