Ice Cube Endorses Kanye 2020, And All The Other Celebs Who Say Ye Has Their Vote
Kanye West already has more support for his potential candidacy in 2020 than most of the 2016 candidates, or at least more celebrity support. It was recently revealed that Kanye West has Ice Cube's vote for 2020; the NWA rapper told The Daily Mail that he'd be voting for Ye in the upcoming election. "Why not? Who's better than Kanye to run?" he asked. He did specify that he would not be interested in running as VP, saying he's not that into politics. His son, O'Shea Jackson, Jr., who recently played his dad in the NWA movie Straight Outta Compton, laughingly agreed that a Vice President Cube would not be a good idea.
Ice Cube is definitely not the first celebrity to endorse Kanye West in the upcoming presidential race. After West announced his candidacy for president during a rambling and excellent acceptance speech at the VMAs, celebrities were quick to show their support for a Kanye presidential bid. Whether or not West will still be interested in running by the time 2020 roles around is another story, but for now, here are the celebrities besides Ice Cube who say that Kanye West has their vote in the election after this one.
Rihanna told Entertainment Tonight that she loved Kanye's speech, and she also pointed out that West makes more sense as a candidate than Trump.
Immediately after West's speech, VMA host Miley Cyrus winkingly said that she would forgo Trump for Kanye. Whether West wants the endorsement is another story.
Despite the fact that Kanye answered his rhetorical question of whether he would interrupt Swift's speech again with the long-winded equivalent of "not really," the duo have made nice after the show, with Swift tagging a picture of a cube of flowers West sent her with #KanTay2020. It's possible that Swift is only interested in jumping on this bandwagon if she is at its front lines.
The most amazing celebrity child (tied with his sister Willow) tweeted "Kanye For President."
Jenner used her incredible Instagram influence to support her half brother in-law's candidacy.
While West's wife Kim has remained silent about the possibility of her becoming first lady, her sister Khloe posted in support of West's presidency.
Rowland told Cosmopolitan that West is much more appealing than Trump. No word from Beyonce as of yet.
Everyone seems to agree: a Kanye presidential run would be entertaining, whether or not you take him seriously (you should). Americans seem sick of poised, political candidates, and something Kanye has always been able to do is seem unscripted and authentic. Bro! Listen to the kids!
