If you’ve found yourself becoming sicker and sicker of 2016’s sad shenanigans, I hate to report another sorry occasion. By now you’ve probably heard about rapper Kanye West’s (America’s favorite villain) meeting with president elect, Donald Trump (America’s favorite clown). Take all the time you need. Social media was at a loss for memes the same way you’re probably at a loss for words, so as you could imagine it was a slow Monday morning for wifi and data plans. But finally, we can find some closure with this entire debacle now that one of Kanye’s closest friends have spoken up about the meaning behind the meeting. Here’s the real reason Kanye Met with Donald (video below).
Kim may have converted her last name to Kardashian-West after their 2014 marriage but its really Kanye who should’ve thought about the name change. How does the name Kanye Kardashian sound? I bet it rolls right off the tongue since this entire fiasco has been deemed a mere ‘publicity stunt’ by none other than John Legend himself. Musician John Legend and wife Chrissy Tiegen have been close friends to Kim and Kanye for years but that didn’t stop the “Ordinary People” crooner from calling out one of his best bros. In a recent interview with French outlet Clique Legend said “I don’t think it’s impossible to talk to (Trump) about issues, but I won’t be used as a publicity stunt. I think Kanye was a publicity stunt.” Sheesh, how do you really feel John?
Kanye later decided to make an official statement via twitter (I’m trying so hard not to laugh right now) to hopefully erase all doubts in our mind that he had essentially lost his. Tweeting he and the president elect discussed “multicultural issues.” He added, “these issues included bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago. I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change.” Because as long as we have Donald’s cell number, he won’t raise taxes, overturn Roe v. Wade, or build that wall-fence thing to keep out all the Mexicans. Now I feel so much better.
Honestly, I’m not shocked West requested to meet mr. Trump. He has been fan-girling over the president elect for weeks now and its not as if he hasn’t always danced to the beat of his own emotionally unstable and hypocritical drum. During his tour he decided to declare a whole new line of nemesis’s, proclaim his support for Trump, spend entire concerts ranting, and crying on the shoulders of Kid Cudi, who he recently dissed. So excuse me while I reflect back on the many signs that alerted to the rapper’s impeding demise. Oh yea, and that one time he was hospitalized for a “psychiatric emergency” just a couple weeks ago.
So maybe, just maybe; John did figure this entire circus out. Perhaps Kanye is just taking a page from his wife who’s been featured in more publicity stunts than Lindsey Lohan mid bender. Or maybe this really is the Kardashian curse coming to collect their next man victim. First Bruce, then Lamar, then Rob, now Kanye. The legend must be true! Or, my favorite theory of all, maybe Taylor Swift has been quietly conducting a coup de grace finishing move on the “Faded” rapper. Now that would be a nice middle finger from 2016 to all of us.
Despite Legend’s brutally honest opinion it is just that, an opinion. We can’t necessarily be sure Kanye was really doing all of this just for attention. I mean how much more attention does this family need? Maybe that was a bad question. Either way, I’m sure that if this was indeed a publicity stunt, there will be an entire 2-part episode dedicated to Kanye’s mental health on the next season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Maybe they’ll even incorporate a huge blow-out into the script between Kanye and Khloe behind the rapper’s support for the man who called her “the ugly Kardashian.” I smell drama. All we can do is stay tuned and keep following Kanye’s twitter account, never know when he’ll get the urge to throw everyone’s day off again.
