Successful singer John Legend spoke about his friendship with rapper Kanye West in a new interview with the UK newspaper The Sunday Times.
John Legend and Kanye West were very close friends, but their friendship has recently weakened. Additionally, West took a public stance supporting President Donald Trump in 2018.
However, John Legend talked about his relationship with the rapper and said that he was not the best friend of Kanye anymore because they live in different places. With this statement, he shuts down speculation that his friendships with Kanye were due to political disagreement. Here’s what he said:
“I don’t think we’re less friends because of the Trump thing. I just think we’re doing our own thing. He’s up in Wyoming. I’m here in LA. We’ve both got growing families, and I no longer have a formal business relationship with him as an artist, so I think it’s just part of the natural cycle of life.”
“Obviously, we disagreed on the Trump thing, and we still do apparently. But what I’ve always said is, we never talked about politics before. It was never a part of our interaction. Our interaction was almost always about creativity and music.
He’s also in a different place musically. He’s doing gospel music. That’s what he’s focused on right now, designing his clothes, so we’re in different places.”
