Black Support For Trump Doubles In One Week

If West's newfound politics have baffled some longtime fans, the 40-year-old has clear stylistic affinities with Trump - a bombastic round-the-clock presence on Twitter, with musings that appear to be stream-of-consciousness but manage to commandeer each news cycle.

After a steady stream of freakish tweets lead many to question his mental health, West popped into TMZ's Los Angeles offices on Tuesday for an impromptu appearance on their TMZ Live television show.

Kanye West with Adidas CMO Eric Liedtke; Jonathan Leibson/Getty Images for ADIDASGlobal sneaker brand Adidas has decided not to ditch Kanye West as their celebrity ambassador, nor of his Yeezy shoe design duties, in the wake of his recent comments about slavery during his controversial interview on TMZ Live. "I'm appalled. And, brother, I'm unbelievably hurt by the fact that you have morphed into something, to me, that's not real". I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does.

One of the posts by director Ava DuVernay condemned both West and R. Kelly, who called Monday's targeting by the Time's Up campaign to #MuteRKelly over sexual misconduct claims, a "public lynching".

"I talked to J. Cole", he said. "And my grandmother's grandma, who was a slave", he said.

Interested in Kanye West?




What happened is that West said in an interview on TMZ Live on Tuesday: "When you hear about slavery for 400 years - for 400 years?" It keeps track of our trends in news, culture, sports and just about everything else so that we can better understand what the rest of the world is up to. Will.i.am furthered his comment, stating that it was "one of the most ignorant statements".

Justin Bieber has vocalized his support for Kanye West. A quick observation of his tweets indicates support for our president that would otherwise seem unlikely, given West's status as a non-white man and a leader in a musical genre that little reason to support Trump as a politician.

Following Kanye's most recent comments, #IfSlaveryWasAChoice was immediately created to mock him. You know from a revenue standpoint less so, but it's a very important part of how we promote our products, particularly in the USA and other parts of the world. "It's shocking. When he said some of the things he said, it was nearly like looking at everything that I looked up to and had influenced me so much, and wondered, was it all bullsh*t?"

"I feel sad that I lost a hero", he said.

Separating the artist from the art? "To do the impossible is the most inspiring thing to me", Ye replies. "I ain't going to be like everybody jumping on the bandwagon saying I hate my dude". I know the music is gonna be fire, every time he drops it's a cultural moment, it's an event.
