John Legend on Kanye West’s Meeting With Donald Trump: “It Was a Publicity Stunt”

Published: Thursday 15th Dec 2016 by Rashad

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

That’s not all:

      Kanye while very talented, is a KOON. I will say they doubted his fashion sense and now every man of color in america is wearing his “WALKING DEAD” fashion. But still Kanye is a koon.

    I noticed his new album wasn’t released under the GOOD music imprint….

    Being able to tell your friend how you really feel is only a sign a strong relationship.

    Kanye West is a self seeking narcissistic pig, i truly do not believe he has mental illness and use that to get out of his tour obligations both he and kim are insurance fraudsters,I see why bey and Jay stay far from them everything is for publicity it’s sick and pathetic why anyone support him is beyond me

      Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental illness.

    This stunt is to line himself with trump because bey and Jay had access to Obama for years and kanye and kim wants that with trump so obvious he tries to compete with them jealousy is a hell of a thing

    Dear John,

    How dare you?!?! You were used as a publicity stunt (your wife). Stay in your lane. Im not the biggest Kanye fan but he can do what he wants it’s free speech. You can say what you want too say, but your are not loyal. Kanye was there for you before the white ppl were remember that? He put you on!. You’re mad because he would have voted for somebody else? Get off Hillarys ball’s. She lost, get over it! Me and a friend voted for different candidates and still watched the election results together.

      So just because he’s disappointed with a friends opinion he’s not loyal? True friends can disagree and still be loyal to one another. This is John’s opinion just like Kanye has an opinion.

    Kanye is a damn fool. Just look at him standing next to Drumpf with his blonde hair and sweat suit, talking about, “I just wanna take a pic” 😦😣😷 I can’t with this goon.

    I just want Kanye west to go away

  14. #TeamTinashe Stan December 15, 2016

    If anyone supported either Hilary or Trumpet than you’re also foolish too. I don’t blame individuals like myself that didn’t vote!

    So I guess Kanye is the one pushing all his friends away. I remember John exposed him in an interview and said Ue don’t make beats anymore, his team under him does.
