Who cares. Just another narcissist on the prowl for attention.

I just wished that the press would stop polluting the news with these goofy characters...

Crazy Ye

2 ( +6 / -4 )

Isn’t it now considered ‘offensive’ for journalists to ‘dead name’ a person by their “formerly known as” name?

He is now “Ye”. (pronounced “Yay”) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DfZqjVatmc

Perhaps try just using his new name in headlines without a picture and see if there is a response?

Perhaps Ye will be remembered as this generation’s Dennis Rodman with Putin? - Let’s consider what Rodman did for détente with Kim in North Korea.

More power to him!

Kanye West & Donald Trump are both walking proof that anybody can make it in America.

Why would Putin even give that moron the time of day? Oh wait, I get it, great chance for some good old kremlin propaganda that dumb dumb is feeding right into

Probably all going to take place in his head. Nutcase

-2 ( +3 / -5 )

why this should be considered as "newsworthy"?

Good on him. Peace, not war. Love, not hate.

2 ( +5 / -3 )

There's nothing wrong with Kanye going to Russia. I just wonder what Putin, a man who's no stranger to the potential usefulness of contemporary musicians, really thinks about him.

180 here. I hope him and Trump run again in 2024.

Thats right, that is the beauty of America.

You definitely cannot do that here.

yakyak:

If by “here” you mean Japan, I’d suggest that there’s a fair bit of space between the political systems of Japan and the USA where you might find something workable.

Will he bring Dennis Rodman with him? They are really the two "best of the best" in our American diplomatic circles. Putin could care less about anyone except Putin. Just another clown on the world stage who is a bully dictator. It is a pity Kimmy Kartrashian can't make it. She might talk about the Turkish Armenian genocide and Soviet persecution of her relatives under the former USSR. A great opportunity with all liars in the same room

Maybe he is just trying to get away from that Kardashian as possible.

Now why is this NEWS!!??

I know the guy personally watched him grow up in my home town, what destroyed him was MONEY, the more he made the more powerful he pushed to become. What use to be a "MAYBE" for him now is "YEs" I can do anything I want because I have money and I can do anything. Do I think he has a problem YEs money destroyed this snotty nose boy I use to know!

He do not know, where he is coming or going, put sanction on him, since he involve with Russian conspirators

0 ( +1 / -1 )

With a little bit of luck, he will stay there.

There is a point. Cancel his passport once he arrives at Putins office.

The Trump White House sponsored Kanye's failed presidential campaign (to try to siphon black votes away from the Democrats), and now Kanye is going to play for Putin - the guy the Trump White House defended over American security agencies.

Hmm...

And where is Rodman now? He sold himself and will be remembered as a tool for a Communist fool.

They're two of a kind, narcisstic attention-seeking jerks. At least Kayne West/Ye knows how to write and rap, that's something there. We can't say that about the latter, can we?

That's why I quit watching all TV news in America. Thruout the 00's if they weren't covering some wasteful war, it was the stupid moronic escapades of bimboes like Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Hillary Duff, etc. Even today NBC News features non-news like 'Lady Caca gets her pooch returned'. It's crap.

And if Pudding Head decides to detain Ye,for any trumped up reason, Ye will just have to suffer the consequences.

He's still alive ? I figured he was marked, when he started supporting Mr T.

What's the world come to that we have such strong feelings when someone wants to travel. Still a free world last time I looked

Conspiracies everywhere. I guess that's why we need those secret "security agencies" to keep us safe. Surely we can trust them.
