John Legend Says “I Understand What Kanye Sees In Trump”

Posted by

John Legend is the new face set to cover the Wall Street Journal’s November issue. During his interview with the publication, he spoke about Kanye West and made it clear that he didn’t have much to say regarding his mental issues. “A lot of people have tried to armchair diagnose, but I leave it to him and his doctors to discuss what’s going on in his brain.”


In the past, John approached Kanye with concerns of how his support toward Donald Trump could be demralizing for those who “though of him as a leader.”

“Clearly, I disagreed with some of the things he was saying, and I was worried that his saying it might empower some of the wrong forces, might be demoralizing for people who looked up to him and thought of him as a leader,” said Legend.

John went on to say: “I understand what Kanye sees in Trump, and I think it’s a reaction to his personality and his marketing panache and don’t-give-a-f—ness. But my point to him was that when you wear that hat when you appear to be endorsing him, you’re endorsing his policies as well, all of his rhetoric and not just the parts you like.”

Reports have said that John and his wife Chrissy Teigan are ready to forgive and move past all the controversy regarding their former close friend Kanye after the rapper stated that he is now distancing himself from politics and has stopped his for Trump.

Hilary Duff Says Drinking Her Placenta In Smoothie Form Was “Delightful”

Hilary Duff and Matthew Koma welcomed their baby girl, Banks Violet Bair, on October 25th —  since then, we have gotten some adorable glimpses of their adorable newborn with pictures posted on Instagram. Now the 31-year-old is opening up about her experiences with a newborn, and gave in detail of how she consumed her placenta.


It’s been 10 days since Duff gave birth to her daughter, she recently made an appearance on the Informed Pregnancy podcast, where she admitted to consuming her placenta in a smoothie.


“It was the most delightful smoothie I’ve ever had. I haven’t had a smoothie that delightful since I was 10. It was calorie-filled with juice and fruit and everything delicious.” Hilary, who had a drug-free natural birth, couldn’t take her entire placenta in just one smoothie so to avoid taking pills, she has been drinking the rest of it in the form of ice cubes.
