Well the honeymoon is over. Kanye dumps Trump and now what? I mean really what is next for Kanye? We knew this would not last too long. I think we should really take stock that he admitted his position was not something he truly believed in…That takes courage…Will his rep and influence be restored??? That will take time. Now Kanye is in reconciliation mode, and you know what I think we will embrace him again… Can we really afford not to embrace Kanye’s influence as an artist once again? We would love to hear your views on this.
TMZ-Kanye West says he’s been used by people to spread political messages and he’s now done with it.
Kanye just fired off a series of tweets apparently distancing himself from politics. He said, “My eyes are now wide open and now realize I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in. I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative.”
Kanye all but says the culprit is ultra-conservative Candace Owens. He said, “I introduced Candace to the person who made the logo and they didn’t want their name on it so she used mine. I never wanted any association with Blexit. I have nothing to do with it.”
Owens had said, “Blexit [black exit from Democratic Party] is a renaissance and I’m blessed to say that this logo, these colors, were created by my dear friend and fellow superhero — Kanye West.”
