Kanye West Appears to Be Over Politics
CNN/Stylemagazine.com Newswire | 11/2/2018, 9:04 a.m.
Just weeks after visiting the White House, Kanye West appears to be a little tired of politics. The rapper and designer on Tuesday said on Twitter that he plans on "distancing" himself from politics, alleging he's being "used to spread messages I don't believe in. "I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative!!!" he wrote. This week, West became associated with a campaign led by conservative activist Candace Owens that encourages black voters to leave the Democratic Party. While Owens clarified West's role in designing the logo for her campaign -- she said on Twitter that West merely made an introduction -- West was seemingly unnerved by the attention. West wrote that he "never wanted any association" with the campaign and has "nothing to do with it."
