John Legend doesn’t envy president’s workload
John Legend wouldn’t like the workload of being president. The 39-year-old singer is very vocal about politics, but he doesn’t see himself following Kanye West’s example by announcing plans to “run for office” in the US.
He told the Wall Street Journal: “People ask me if I want to run for office, but I don’t. Maybe when I’m 60 — who knows what the world is going to be then? But I love my life now and what I get to do. But I would not want to go to work every day, even at the Capitol Building or the White House. I just couldn’t see it as the life I would want to live.”
John and Kanye are close but the All of Me hitmaker has publicly spoken out against his friend’s vocal support of Donald Trump, and he’s now explained why it was important to do so on social media.
