…..If he had voted!
Kanye last night told the concert goers at his Saint Pablo Tour show in San Jose that “I would have voted on Trump”. He didn’t vote though so why even say anything?
At a cost of several songs, Kanye went on a 40 minute political rant about about the paradigm shift. More or Less Kanye praised Trump for providing the disruption Washington needed.
“Whether you voted for Hillary or Trump, this is a safe space for both of you,” he told the audience
He also reiterated his desire to run for president in 2020, saying his focus would be on education and that his campaign would use a different political model. We all can’t wait. After the Trump win, anything’s possible right?
The attitude at the show was very mixed. Kanye was apparently happy when one woman screamed that she loved him in spite of his appreciation of Trump’s campaign, but there was also a lot of booing, stunned silence and even a few projectiles – one of which was a Yeezy shoe, which Kanye promptly signed and returned to the thrower. Gotta love Kanye.
The Rolling Stones will have been invited to perform for Donald Trump’s Presidential Inauguration in January.
If this offer is true, it’s really hard to believe, given a history of hatred between The Donald and and the Rolling Stones. But maybe Trump is trying to make nice, and there’s an opportunity for the Stones to unify warring factions.
Rumor has it Trump could be paying the Stones upwards of $5 million dollars, probably more since during the campaign, Justin Bieber was reportedly offered $5 million to play a Republican event. That offer was declined, following rumored manager Scooter Braun. Must be nice to turn down 5 Million dollars huh?
There are certainly other artists that have been supportive of a Donald Trump presidency. But the Stones are not only popular, they’re in great performing shape with the 73-year-old Jagger able to dance effortlessly on stage.
The Rolling Stones have not responded to an inquiry regarding the reported invitation but you can be sure we’ll let you know if they decide to pull the trigger.
Not one to sit still, Sean Combs who is better known as Diddy (P-Diddy / Puff Daddy), sat down in a interview with AdWeek to discuss Branding, Liquor, Mousetraps and his future plans.
As a businessman, Diddy has made his millions off music, TV, film, clothing and fragrances. So what’s this multi-talented, jack of all trades have in store next?
In Diddy’s latest Ciroe vodka ad, he’s set the theme to a classic Sinatra tune,”Luck Be a Lady”. Combs explains how the idea came about.
“The spot that put Ciroc on the map was the first partnership we did with the Sinatra estate four years ago. I did a huge out-of-the-box buy on CNN, and I knew there would be a lot of traffic because Obama was running for president. And sales went through the roof. It was one of the most impactful ad campaigns in the spirit’s history. Also, for years, people have called me the black Sinatra. So that’s where the whole collaboration came from.”
