Kanye West (43, "Yeezus") has started his campaign. The rapper announced at the beginning of July that he wanted to become US president. Now there was a first rally of his self-proclaimed "Birthday Party" in Charleston, South Carolina. Many fans of the musician and fashion designer asked in advance whether his political campaign was an advertising stunt or serious – the question apparently cannot be answered after his recent appearance. A later deleted tweet on West's account with the song list for a new album further fueled speculation, wrote the "BBC".
Kanye West's emotional appearance
According to media reports, West spoke among other things about abortions during his campaign appearance. In tears, he declared according to "People": "Even if my wife wants to divorce me after this speech, she gave birth to North, even if I didn't want to. She protected this child." He is also said to have said, "I almost killed my daughter!" Before shouting, "I love my daughter!"
In addition to his wife Kim Kardashian (39), with whom he has the children Saint (4), Chicago (2) and Psalm (1) in addition to North (7), the rapper also spoke about his mother, who died in 2007, who saved his life "My father wanted to abort me. My mother saved my life, there would have been no Kanye West because my father was too busy," he said.
