Kanye West defends R Kelly and Michael Jackson, says we can all enjoy their music
Recently Kanye West spoke at a Church-like gathering where he stated that people can enjoy R Kelly or Michael Jackson’s music all they want. His statement is contrary to what most of his colleagues are saying, who all want R Kelly’s music muted.
Kanye West said:
“They want art from the artist. But, anytime they do anything erratic, they just gonna pull up the full documentaries on him. And then, they gonna come with the Michael documentary. We can enjoy all their music all we want. I thought I wasn’t gon’ go there today…let’s go ahead and take da Vinci out The Louvre. Let’s take down all the art.”
Receiving several backlash for his comment, his wife Kim Kardashian quickly stood to his defence by clarifying her husband’s stance:
“I’m going to nip this in the bud right now. Kanye was speaking about his own experience of everyone quick to say they are cancelling him because of differences in opinion & not being perfect. The analogies were in context to his own experiences, not defending anyone else.”
“I want to make it very clear, he is not condoning anyone’s actions or unacceptable disgusting behavior. My husband’s words are being taken out of context due to timing.”
