Kanye West Offers Up More "Zig Zag Thoughts" — Talks Love For Both Donald Trump AND Hillary Clinton, The Sunken Place, & So Much More!

Kanye West has LOTS of opinions and enjoys sharing them with the world. Ever since returning to Twitter last week, Yeezy has been spewing off thoughts regarding a variety of subjects. Thus far, he's once again compared himself to greats — including Steve Jobs, Walt Disney Disney, Henry Ford, etc.– and called out those who've questioned [...] Kanye West has LOTS of opinions and enjoys sharing them with the world. Ever since returning to Twitter last week, Yeezy has been spewing off thoughts regarding a variety of subjects. Thus far, he's once again compared himself to greats -- including Steve Jobs, Walt Disney Disney, Henry Ford, etc.-- and called out those who've questioned his mental health. Related: Kris Slams Reports She Fought With Kanye! Well, Ye has since popped back on Twitter, and appears to be tweeting out his stream of consciousness. In his latest rant, West has discussed Get Out's the Sunken Place (a "place" of no control many online critics think he's now in), teased new music, and explained his love for BOTH Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump! For more from Kanye's mind, be sure to proceed (below)... do this look like the sunken place 😂 pic.twitter.com/ixzKnaaaSy — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 more tweets from the sunken place 😂 pic.twitter.com/nJQdQ2aVKn — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 I'm used to the heat of independent thoughts — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 I leave my emojis bart Simpson color — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 Trav we gotta drop the track with me you and Uzi this week bro. Let's gooooooooooooooooooooooooo🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 I'm turn the Grammys into the Yammys — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 Rocky we gotta release our songs ASAP — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 Do ITTTT! But Kanye didn't stop there, as he continued: Free thinkers don't fear retaliation for your thoughts. The traditional thinkers are only using thoughts and words but they are in a mental prison. You are free. You've already won. Feel energized. Move in love not fear. Be afraid of nothing. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 If your friend jumps off the bridge you don't have to do the same. Ye being Ye is a fight for you to be you. For people In my life the idea of Trump is pretty much a 50 50 split but I don't tell a Hillary supporter not to support Hillary I love Hillary too. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 I love when people have their own ideas. You don't have to be allowed anymore. Just be. Love who you want to love. That's free thought. I'm not even political. I'm not a democrat or a republican — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 And also I'm all the way out the sunken place. And I'm not scared anymore. I'm not scared of the media. I'm not scared of the past and I'm optimistic about the future. This tweet is in love not fear. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 with love I am invincible. Truth is subjective but love is the most powerful force in the world and the world needs to express more of it. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 Hmmm, inneresting point. And it seems that North West has encouraged her Famous poppa to say, "I love you" more: When my daughter acts out she actually says afterwards I just want to hear you say I love you more. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 no race religion region or political party can argue with the power of love — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 Powerful stuff. However, Kanye then moved on to more "zig zag thoughts": fear takes strategy Unlearn linear thinking Hit you with these zig zag thoughts — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 decentralize — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 burn that excel spread sheet 🔥😂 — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 Yeezy VC invests in and develops food clothing shelter and communications — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 Clearly baffled by his social media antics, West's wife Kim Kardashian called to check in on him. The 40-year-old hitmaker relayed: my wife just called me and she wanted me to make this clear to everyone. I don't agree with everything Trump does. I don't agree 100% with anyone but myself. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 HIGHlarious! He concluded his wackiest rant with: Kids See Ghost short film will be shot by Dexter Navy — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 I’m nice at ping pong — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 Alrightyyyyyy then.

Six-Year-Old Blue Ivy Carter Bid $19,000 On A Piece Of Art Last Night… How Was YOUR Weekend?!

Not a bad life at all for Blue Ivy Carter! The famed daughter of JAY-Z and Beyoncé may only be six years old, but she's already fast becoming a MAJOR art dealer — at least based on what went down for the little girl this weekend!

The famed daughter of JAY-Z and Beyoncé may only be six years old, but she's already fast becoming a MAJOR art dealer -- at least based on what went down for the little girl this weekend! Related: The Family That Plays Together Stays Together! Bey and Jay took their daughter to the Wearable Art Gala on Saturday night in El Lay, which was being organized by grandma Tina Knowles Lawson and her husband, Richard. The event was all for a good cause -- raising money to give the area a new, non-profit art and performance complex -- and so Blue Ivy couldn't hold back when it came time to bid on some art! At one point during the gala, in the middle of an art auction, Blue Ivy decided to drop a whopping $19,000 on a piece of art called Cries In Poorness, throwing down the bid by raising her card. It's unclear whether Blue Ivy actually won the bid on the piece -- goodness knows Jay and Bay can afford it if she did -- but that's TRULY high rolling by the adorable six-year-old!

Blue Ivy HUSHED Beyoncé & JAY-Z"s Clapping At The Grammys — And The Internet Cannot Handle It!

It takes a lot to earn applause from Blue Ivy Carter. The six-year-old sat the front-row at the 2018 Grammys on Sunday, and became the night's biggest winner after seemingly telling her parents Beyoncé and JAY-Z to stop with the damn clapping.

The six-year-old sat the front-row at the 2018 Grammys on Sunday, and became the night's biggest winner after seemingly telling her parents Beyoncé and JAY-Z to stop with the damn clapping. Video: Grammy Awards 2018: All The Performance Highlights! The viral moment came during Camila Cabello's moving speech in which she referenced the immigrants and dreamers of DACA. Bey and Jay applauded the pint-sized singer with the rest of the audience. But Blue, never fully impressed, put up her hand and slowly signaled her parents to calm the heck down: Ha! A true LEGEND! Twitter users were confused and in awe over the gesture. Some joked the music princess was reminding her parents that royalty doesn't clap, while others assumed Blue just had enough of the social causes CBS crammed into the 3-hour broadcast. Of course, there's also the chance that Blue has a more conservative outlook on the DACA situation -- or perhaps something even more controversial: she's team Fifth Harmony!?

Kim Kardashian Is STILL Defending Kanye West On Twitter Amid Public Feud Over Chicago Charity!

We thought this thing had all but wrapped up when we first reported it earlier this weekend, but it appears Kim Kardashian West has a lot more to say!

As we [...] We thought this thing had all but wrapped up when we first reported it earlier this weekend, but it appears Kim Kardashian West has a lot more to say! And it sounds like nobody should come after her -- or her man -- without expecting consequences! Photos: Kim Kardashian & Kanye West -- Through The Years! As we reported earlier this weekend, RhymeFest wrote Kim an open letter asking for help for Donda's House -- the charity the producer founded with Kanye West back in Chicago years ago. And late yesterday, Kim came with the goods in a lengthy Twitter response to end the feud. Ch-ch-check it out (below)! Let me break this all the way down ... — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) May 27, 2018 Kanye and Donda started a charity called Loop Dreams. When Donda passed, they changed the name to Donda’s House. Kanye paid Rhymefest a salary to run it. — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) May 27, 2018 After several years of lack of performance from the organization and Kanye going through personal financial issues, he could no longer fund salaries. Rhymefest asked to take it over and Kanye agreed with no financial strings attached. — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) May 27, 2018 Kanye gave his "friend" an opportunity to run an organization on his own. So now that Kanye is being publicly shamed for not being involved makes no sense and, at this exact time, just seems very calculated. — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) May 27, 2018 I have and will always applaud any efforts to give back to the community. To fight for justice and to help uplift the youth. But I will never tolerate someone who was close to Kanye who attempts to use his late mother’s name to publicly shame him while pretending to do good. — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) May 27, 2018 I will always ride for my man! — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) May 27, 2018 She's clearly not lying about that!!! Oh, and she also shared a little something beautiful from Wyoming for the weekend, too (below): Wyoming pic.twitter.com/KZ257dmNmo — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) May 27, 2018 That means somebody's in the studio making music this week...

John Legend Implores Kanye West To Reconsider His Pro-Trump Stance — See The Texts HERE!

Not even Kanye West's equally talented peers can sway his stance on Donald Trump.

In a lengthy note to West, Chrissy Teigen's husband reminded Kanye that he's "way too powerful and [...] Not even Kanye West's equally talented peers can sway his stance on Donald Trump. On Thursday, Yeezy took to Twitter to share a text John Legend sent him, asking the Famous rapper to reconsider his support of the President. In a lengthy note to West, Chrissy Teigen's husband reminded Kanye that he's "way too powerful and influential to endorse who [Trump] is and what he stands for." Photos: All Of Kanye's Tweets That Make You Think TBH, we've never loved the All of Me singer more. Sadly, Yeezus couldn't be persuaded by the 39-year-old's impassioned plea. In fact, Kim Kardashian West's man accused John of using West's fans as a "tactic" to "manipulate [his] free thought." Geez. Be sure to take a closer look at their convo for yourself (below)! pic.twitter.com/L9a7OeywJ6 — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018 While Kanye has every right to have his own opinion, we feel his ego is blinding him from seeing Trump for the bigot he is. West has since doubled down on his pro-Trump sentiments: I tweeted the John text to show that there are people around me that disagree with me and voice their opinion. I respect everyone's opinion but I stand my ground. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018 if you feel something don't let peer pressure manipulate you — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018 Thankfully, the Love Me Now artist didn't take Kanye's response too personally, as he's since joked about West posting their text conversation (below). pic.twitter.com/zxcloMEj9I — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018 Too funny. Although Kanye's rant didn't stop there, as he continued: I really appreciate this dialogue with John Legend because I'm actually very empathetic. Im still the kid from the telethon. I feel when people think of MAGA they don't think of empathy. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018 This is year one. We can't ad empathy to MAGA by hating. We can only ad empathy with love and time and truly hearing all sides — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018 John Legend new single on line now 😂 — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018 my friend said he texted all his friends this morning and said I love you — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018 the concept of loving people has a stigma — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018 try telling people you love them it actually feels weird at first. We're really good at hating each other. We have to get good at loving each other. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018 Huh. While John had lighthearted banter with Kanye, there's nothing about Trump's presidency that he finds amusing. On the racial tension that plagues the U.S., Legend noted on Wednesday evening: I imagine there's some comfort in imagining a future without racism and projecting that onto the present. Thinking if we just deny the truth, it doesn't exist. If history is erased, we don't have to deal with its consequences. However... — John Legend (@johnlegend) April 25, 2018 Far too many people don't have the luxury of closing their eyes and ears. They feel it in their lives and can't act like what they see and know doesn't exist. — John Legend (@johnlegend) April 25, 2018 They know their family was destroyed by deportation or incarceration. They know their loved one was denied safe harbor because of their religion. They know their son or daughter was shot because their skin color evoked fear — John Legend (@johnlegend) April 25, 2018 They see the statistics about black applications for real estate or loans or employment being turned away because their name was Jamal and not James — John Legend (@johnlegend) April 25, 2018 I love that great, brilliant artists have the power to imagine a better future. But artists can't be blind to the truth. — John Legend (@johnlegend) April 25, 2018 And to make it perfectly clear that he's referencing the Trump administration, the soon to be father of two added: The defining trait of Trump's campaign and political profile was his embrace of white supremacy. He made it clear every time he spoke. Some serious cognitive dissonance to ignore that for the other x% you might find appealing. I guess I agree with >1% of anyone's thoughts though — John Legend (@johnlegend) April 25, 2018 Hear! Hear! What do YOU think?? Should Kanye listen to John?? SOUND OFF in the comments (below)!

On one track, Kanye raps: "Wife calling screaming saying we're about to lose it all I had to calm her down ‘cos she couldn't breathe/I told her she could leave me now but she wouldn't leave. This is what they mean for better or for worse huh?" Re: Tristan, he says: "All these thots on Christian Mingle/That's what almost got Tristan single" Kanye also mentions Stormy Daniels, his mother-in-law Kris Jenner's boyfriend Corey Gamble, and Russell Simmons, who has recently been accused of sexual assault: "Russell Simmons want to pray for me too/ I pray for him because he got Me Too'd" No reported mentions of Donald Trump, oddly enough... Finally, the father of three confirmed his bipolar diagnosis, calling it his "superpower" saying it "ain't no disability, I'm a superhero." There's a lot to take in!

The mother of three wrote: To the media trying to demonize my husband let me just say this... your commentary on Kanye being erratic & his tweets being disturbing is actually scary. So quick to label him as having mental health issues for just being himself when he has always been expressive is not fair — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) April 25, 2018 Yesterday it was announced that Kanye had parted ways with some business people and media outlets made this about Kanye’s mental health. Rather than just a simple business decision. So I’m glad he tweeted about the state of his company and all of the exciting things happening — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) April 25, 2018 Fair point. The reality TV icon went on to defend Yeezy's recent pro-Donald Trump sentiments: He’s a free thinker, is that not allowed in America?

Most people (including myself) have very different feelings & opinions about this. But this is HIS opinion. I believe in people being able to have their own opinions,even if really different from mine He never said he agrees with his politics — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) April 25, 2018 Kanye will never run in the race of popular opinion and we know that and that’s why I love him and respect him and in a few years when someone else says the same exact thing but they aren’t labeled the way he is and you will all praise them! Kanye is years ahead of his time — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) April 25, 2018 Mental Health is no joke and the media needs to stop spitting that out so casually.

Jay-Z Says "Kill Jay Z" Song Is Not a Kanye West Diss Track

Jay-Z‘s song “Kill Jay Z” from the 4:44 album calls out his former friend Kanye West, but the rapper now says the song itself is not meant as a Kanye diss.

Tidal just released an hour-long interview with Jay from the Rap Radar podcast and he talks about being upset by Kanye talking about his wife Beyonce and daughter Blue Ivy on stage. “What really hurt me was, you can’t bring my wife and my kids into it,” Jay said. “Like, Kanye is my little brother. He’s talked about me a hundred times, he even made a song called ‘Big Brother.’ We’ve gotten past bigger issues. But you brought my family into it, now it’s a problem.” “You know it’s a problem because me and him would have been talked about it, been resolved our issues,” he added. “And he knows crossed the line, he knows. And I know he knows. Cause we’ve never let this much space go between one of our disagreements and we’ve had many. That’s just who we are.” “He’s an honest person and he’s wrong a lot of times,” Jay continued. “But, the point is — I was getting to a point where, ‘You got hurt by that.’ You can’t get diss somebody by saying you got hurt. That’s the softest diss of all-time. What are you talking about, you sucka ass n***a? You soft as sh*t! It’s not about a Kanye diss. I’m talking about me. When I say, ‘You dropped out of school, you lost your principals,’ I’m not talking about Kanye. I’m talking about me. The whole thing.”.....»»

Kanye West’s New Album “Ye” Is Here

  The most elaborate media blitz (planned or unplanned) for an album since Lady Gaga donned a flying dress for Art Pop has finally cumulated in the release of Kanye West’s Ye. The seven tracks equate to a whopping twenty-three-minutes of auto-tuned musings on being a self-admittedly bi-polar rapper with a porn star wife and having too […] The post Kanye West’s New Album “Ye” Is Here appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?.   The most elaborate media blitz (planned or unplanned) for an album since Lady Gaga donned a flying dress for Art Pop has finally cumulated in the release of Kanye West’s Ye. The seven tracks equate to a whopping twenty-three-minutes of auto-tuned musings on being a self-admittedly bi-polar rapper with a porn star wife and having too much money and zero fingers on the pulse of reality. I listened to Ye on Spotify for as long as I could before writing this, and I can safely say that it’s relatively indistinguishable from his earlier albums. Except his arrogance and forcefield of ass kissers have lulled Kanye into thinking that his songs need not be confined to memorable beats or interesting lyrics. Kayne presumably feels the weight of his words renders musical conventions meaningless. Maybe you’ll feel the same way when listening to it. After all, he does talk about wanting to kill who I assume to be Kim Kardashian for the entirety of the first song “I Thought About Killing You.” Willing to give some leeway there. This holier-than-thou attitude played out in the actual introduction of his album – for which Kanye flew out celebs and writers to Wyoming to listen to Ye for the first time in the same state that he recorded it. You can read an account of the bizarre event from Pitchfork. Kanye West confirms his bipolar disorder with the album’s lyrics as well as the somewhat didactic text on the cover: “I hate being Bi-Polar its awesome.” It’s become a source of pride for Kanye, and while bipolar disorder has contributed to the musical genius of artists like Daniel Johnston, it also contributed to Amanda Bynes’ wig decisions. Not necessarily an outright signal of genius. And for those of you wondering if Kanye cements his Trump allegiance with a Trump mention in his art – he does not. A month of garnering favs, retweets, and headlines for his Make American Great Again push – including a live meltdown on TMZ – could have potentially had less to do with politics and more to do with album sales. (Or shirt sales. His Wyoming listening party long-sleeve t-shirt is available for $145 at shop.kanyewest.com.) I’m personally not buying any of it, but give Ye a listen (available on iTunes, Spotify, and Tidal) for yourself and let us know if Kanye’s Making Music Great Again.   Kanye shot the album cover on his iPhone on the way to the album listening party — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) June 1, 2018 Photo Credit: Kanye West The post Kanye West’s New Album “Ye” Is Here appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?......»»
