John Legend Calls Kanye West-Donald Trump Meeting a ‘Publicity Stunt’


EXCLUSIVE : John Legend reacts to Kanye West’s… by cliquetv

 

During an interview with French media outlet Clique, musician and outspoken activist John Legend dismissed rapper Kanye West and President-elect Donald Trump’s meeting in New York on Dec. 13.

Legend, a 10-time Grammy winner, told the interviewer that West’s meeting was a mere “publicity stunt.” In the short clip, the singer said that Trump was using the rapper for an ulterior political motive.

“I don’t think it’s impossible to talk to [Donald Trump] about issues, but I won’t be used as a publicity stunt. I think Kanye was a publicity stunt,” Legend says.

Legend, who, along with Common, won an Academy Award for “Glory,” the theme song from the 2014 movie “Selma,” told the reporter that he was chagrined that West would ever meet with and, worse, vote for someone like Trump.

“I’m pretty disappointed with Kanye that he says he would have voted for Trump,” Legend says. “[Trump’s] 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.”
