Kanye West announced at the MTV Video Music Awards that he would be running for President in 2020 and it turns out – he wasn’t kidding!


The rapper turned fashion designer has opened up in the latest edition of Vanity Fair.

He said, "I didn't approach that because I thought it would be fun. It wasn't like, Oh, let's go rent some jet skis in Hawaii. No, the exact opposite. I sit in clubs and I'm like, Wow, I've got five years before I go and run for office and I've got a lot of research to do, I've got a lot of growing up to do."

There is no doubt he would make for a unique President, and Kanye shared his political strategy to readers, "I think the world can be helped through design, so it's very important that I stay around creative, forward thinkers. It's very important that I continue to design, to be in practice of trying to make the best decisions possible. I hate politics. I'm not a politician at all. I care about the truth and I just care about human beings. I just want everyone to win, that's all I can say, and I think we can."

Hating politics while running for President may cause some Issues though, Kayne.

But wait! What does this mean for his career as a performer?

Kanye said, "Rap is great. It's fun. It's fun to be a rock star, and I'll never not be one I guess, but there'll be a point where I become my mother's child."

Wow. We love this side of Kanye!
