Kanye West took a break from his 2020 presidential “campaign” to pursue another dream, becoming the next American Idol.
West made headlines at the 2015 MTV VMAs by declaring his intent to run for president of the United States in the 2020 election, and on Sunday night, the 38-year-old rapper surprised the judges of “American Idol” by showing up to the show’s San Francisco auditions to perform.
Either way, the rapper’s wife Kim Kardashian caught the whole shenanigan on camera and shared it with her millions of followers on Instagram and Twitter. “SURPRISE,” she captioned a photo of West smiling in front of the judges.
“SURPRISE!” Kim, who covered her baby bump in a black maxi dress and long, black jacket, wrote on Instagram.
The rapper says he’s had lots of support since announcing plans to run for election.
He thinks it’s because he’s seen as “extremely thoughtful” and “probably the most honest celebrity we have”.
