Grammy-winning crooner John Legend may be on a high celebrating news of his headlining gig at next year’s NBA All-Star game halftime show (as well as his most recent top 10 R&B album, ‘Darkness & Light’), but -as a recent interview reveals – the singer isn’t exactly celebrating the headline grabbing antics of longtime friend Kanye West.
Legend, a noted community activist and commentator on political affairs, has long used his platform to express his disdain for the soon-to-be-inaugurated Trump administration. So, to the surprise of few, he minced no words when quizzed on his thoughts about West’s recent visit to Trump Tower:
“I’m pretty disappointed with Kanye that he says he would have voted for Trump. I think Trump has been corrosive, his message has been corrosive to the country. I think the things he’s promised to do have been very concerning for a lot of people, and for Kanye to support that message is very disappointing.” – John Legend
