Not that we thought he was joking or anything, but it turns out, Kanye West really is serious about running for President in 2020.
West announced his presidential candidacy during the MTV VMAs last month and now his wife, Kim Kardashian, is speaking out about her husband’s run. During an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, set to air on Wednesday, the reality star explained that she was not aware that Yeezy would be making such a big announcement.
“That was news to me,” she said. “I believe he is serious and I know that if he puts his mind to something he’ll do his best. And he will. It’s been fascinating just hearing all of the conversations that have gone on since that announcement. I don’t know if that was planned and I just didn’t know about it or if he came up with that idea right then and there…That was a fun night and I’m looking forward to what’s to come.”
And as a possible first lady, Kardashian says this is something you definitely mention to your wife. “That’s a big thing to not talk to your wife about, but I think that would be so much fun to be in the White House,” the mother to 2-year-old North West explained. “I was joking with him. I was like, ‘You’re going to have to make it to a second term,’ because he loves redecorating. I was like, ‘You’re going to want to redo the whole White House and we’re not going to be able to enjoy it. So we’re going to have to just go with the flow.'”
And speaking of going with the flow, the couple isn’t rushing the baby name for their second bundle of joy. The pregnant star, who is expecting a baby boy, shared with Ellen that “I do like the name Easton. Easton West. I don’t think my husband likes that name, but I do like it. I don’t we’ll go another direction. It’s definitely not South. Every time someone says ‘South’ I just want to roll my eyes. It’s not a good direction.”
Exclusive: Sorry, Folks, Diddy Did NOT Offer H&M Model A Contract
Last week rumors started circulating that Diddy had offered Liam Mango, the young model featured in the H&M ad a Sean John modeling contract. Unfortunately those reports, as sweet as they sound, aren’t true.
Diddy spoke to reporters backstage before a tapping of his new show The Four and clarified what really happened.
“I didn’t actually offer a modeling contract to him I told my people to reach out to him so we could use him in the next shoot that we do,” he explained. “But with that being said, I think that what we’re seeing is just a general insensitivity to how we feel you know. I think that H&M is going to feel the results of that.”
H&M has issued an official apology for featuring Mango on their website in a “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie, saying in a statement : “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States. We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”
After photos of the young boy hit the web, folks started speaking out against the retailer calling them racist and insensitive. But one person not feeling that way was Mango’s mother. She posted her thoughts Facebook questioning what all the fuss is about. “I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”
She and the boys father Terry Odhiambo have since had a change of heart appearing on ITV on Monday, saying they don’t think that there’s ever an “overreaction when it comes to racism”.
They also said they’ve had to move from their home in Sweden, and haven’t been able to live a normal life since the controversy started.
