Kanye be­lieve this stu­pid­ity?

Sunday Mirror - - SAIRAKHAN - I ap­plaud Keira Knight­ley for be­ing hon­est about giv­ing birth. She con­trib­uted to the book Fem­i­nists Don’t Wear Pink and Other Lies, in which she writes about “the s***, the vomit, the blood, the stitches”. It’s com­fort­ing to know some­one like her went th

re­late to this. UK male sui­cide rates are three times higher than women’s.

But things are mov­ing in the right di­rec­tion.

Last week the Govern­ment ap­pointed what is thought to be the world’s first min­is­ter for sui­cide pre­ven­tion.

And we’ve also seen the launch of a smart­phone “chat­bot” called HARR-e af­ter a study showed men were three times more likely to con­fide in an Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence (AI) ro­bot than hu­mans about life, love and their emo­tions and anx­i­eties.

Men’s pref­er­ence is tech over peo­ple. I’m all for my hubby and son talk­ing to a chat­bot.

If it makes them happy and light­ens their men­tal load, then I say AI to that. See­ing Kanye West in the White House in that stupid MAGA (Make Amer­ica Great Again) cap – telling Don­ald Trump wear­ing it “made me feel like Su­per­man” – was oh so cringey. West was in­vited by the Pres­i­dent to dis­cuss prison re­form. Se­ri­ously? Doesn’t Amer­ica have real ex­perts to com­ment on such se­ri­ous is­sues? CNN re­porter Nia-Ma­lika Hen­der­son summed it up per­fectly: “The re­sult was about what one would ex­pect – a hard-to-parse, bizarre Oval Of­fice mo­ment with very lit­tle sub­stance fu­elled by West’s des­per­ate need for


at­ten­tion and Trump’s need for open ado­ra­tion by fa­mous peo­ple.”
