Kanye West wants us all to know just how important he feels sweatshirts are – and surprisingly, he was not joking about running for president!
In an interview with Vanity Fair, he said, “I think sweatshirts are the way of the future. And we worked so hard on our development of our actual sweatshirts. Sweatshirts are f**king important. That might sound like the funniest quote ever. How can you say all this stuff about running for president in 2020 and then say sweatshirts are important? But they are. Just mark my words. Mark my words like Mark Twain.”
With regard to whether or not he was serious about his presidential run? He said, “Oh, definitely. As soon as I said that, it was like, ‘Wait a second, we would really be into that, because actually if you think about it, he’s extremely thoughtful. Every time he’s ever gotten in trouble, he was really jumping in front of a bullet for someone else. He’s probably the most honest celebrity that we have.’ 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.”
He added, “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.”
Would you vote for Kanye West for president and platform built on sweatshirts?
