Kanye West never fails to hit the headlines for something outrageous, controversial, or all-out eyebrow-raising. In fact, he may be famous for his chart-topping music and marriage to Kim Kardashian, but the star seems to stir up more attention because of anything except for his music career.
And now he’s back with some pretty big news. A presidential bid – and everybody is saying the same thing!
Keep scrolling to find out what they’re saying.
Because I didn’t… But while I’m still confused about the new picture Kanye posted, I also almost expected it from a man like him.
Since the early 2000s, the rapper has become one of the biggest names in the music industry.
And after being raised in Chicago, he kicked off his career by working as a producer for Roc-A-Fella Records, producing singles for artists such as Jay-Z and Alicia Keys.
He began experimenting with a variety of musical genres on subsequent acclaimed studio albums, including Late Registration in 2005 and Graduation in 2007.
These include My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in 2010, Yeezus in 2013, The Life of Pablo in 2016, Ye in 2018, and Jesus is King in 2019.
Kanye met Kim Kardashian back in 2003, but they didn’t rekindle until October of 2011 – a mere few weeks after Kim divorced Kris Humphries after a seventy-two-day marriage.
The couple got married in Italy in 2014 and they have since had 4 children together – North, Chicago, Saint, and Psalm.
He has been working on fashion lines since 2006, and now Kanye’s Yeezy collections are sold-out worldwide – despite waves of criticisms surrounding them.
But being a family man doesn’t seem to have settled down Kanye, who is also very well known for his outspoken and often irrational personality.
Kanye isn’t afraid of letting his opinion be known and he enjoys going to extreme lengths to do so.
Instead of allowing Swift to happily accept her award – that she won – he interrupted her on stage saying that Beyonce deserved to win more than she did.
He has made claims in the past that he is, in fact, a God, which didn’t go down well with Christian communities around the world.
While wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat, the musician sat down with Donald Trump in the Oval Office last year, where he proclaimed his support for the polarizing president and declared Trump a “hero” in a rambling televised monologue that spawned myriad parodies.
He also announced that he had been battling with his mental health over the last few years, but he has found his saving grace through religion.
Over the past year, Kanye’s hosted his Sunday Service every week almost without fail.
While it initially seemed like a gimmick to propel his fledgling music career, it’s clearly part of a personal journey for the rapper.
Kanye’s new album, Jesus is King, takes on a gospel direction that stays in line with the music at his Sunday Service.
So seriously, in fact, that he told his team working on the production of Jesus is King that they were to not take part in pre-marital sex.
“There were times where I was asking people not to have pre-marital sex while they were working on the album,” West told Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio.
But he may have bitten off a bit more than he could chew when he decided to take on Forbes Magazine after they finally featured the singer on their coveted “Billionaires 2020” list.
After months of asking him for his financial records, they estimated his value at around 1.3 billion, but West was having none of that as he explained that they undervalued him by 2 billion dollars. That was a very messy part on his behalf because he kept parts of his records a secret.
Firstly, it was a strange tribute to his wife Kim Kardashian, as she finally became (and then unbecame) a billionaire. You can read more about that incident a bit later on.
Even though I was initially surprised that these two were even friends, it kind of makes sense given that their personalities are very similar. You know what they say about birds of the same feather…
You’ll understand when you see the picture.
Initially, the comments just started off with mocking the two.
Especially with a caption like “When you go to your boys house and you’re both wearing orange…” Stop it.
Why is Grimes in the photograph?
And it ain’t the 2 men up front…
But Grimes, you’re doing amazing sweetie.
Why didn’t they just take the selfie for themselves?

Well absolutely none other than Elon Musk: ‘You have my full support!’.
Kanye has toyed with the idea of running for president in the past – most notably in 2015.
After Donald Trump got voted in 2016 – anything is possible!
Since announcing the big news on Twitter just a matter of hours ago, literally everyone is saying the same thing about Kanye.
Well it’s good news for the man who seemingly has it all.
And most people on Twitter are saying that they’re going to vote for him.

While the majority of people seem delighted Kanye is running for president, others are urging voters not to vote for him – claiming that a vote for Kanye is taking away votes from Biden and thus endorsing Trump…
