He recently announced plans to run for US president in 2020 and it looks like Kanye West has already started behaving like a politician. Although he was a no-show at the UN General Assembly, he did find time to offer Mayor of London Boris Johnson some words of advice.
During an 90-minute interview with fashion website SHOWstudio's In Camera series, which was streamed live online, the hip hop star answered questions from fans – including one from Johnson on how he would improve the capital.
Not one to disappoint, Kim Kardashian's husband fired back by telling the Conservative MP that he could stand to improve traffic flow by widening the city's notoriously narrow streets. "Widen the street, because I get really scared when the drivers (sic)... When there's a big truck coming (sic)," the All Day hitmaker said.
Although the hip hop star has outlined some ways to improve London, he has yet to reveal his manifesto for a better America.
It has been almost six weeks since West announced his bid for the White House during his acceptance speech for the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award at the 2015 MTV VMAs. At the time, he said: "I don't know what I'm fitting to lose after this. It don't matter though because it ain't about me, it's about new ideas bro', people with ideas, people who believe in truth. And yes, as you probably could've guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president."
However, he forgot to run the idea by his Kardashian, who was just as stunned as the millions tuning into the awards show. "That was news to me," the heavily pregnant reality star said during a pre-taped appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. "That wasn't a discussion in our household."
