As in the stuff of dreams, Kanye has confirmed he really is running for president in 2020. He told Vanity Fair that he wasn’t off his face but is genuinely applying to govern the United states of America.

He told the magazine; “As soon as I said that, (everyone) 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 also revealed that he was, unusually, trying to get in touch with who he deems “the most brilliant guy” – Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson.

“As soon as I heard Carson speak, I tried for three weeks to get on the phone with him,” he said.  “I was like, ‘This is the most brilliant guy.’ And I think all the people running right now have something that each of the others needs. But the idea of this separation and this gladiator battle takes away from the main focus that the world needs help, and the world needs all the people in a position of power or influence to come together.”

The musician added, “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.”

Wow. Bring on 2020, it’s sure to be an interesting year…
