The National - News - - ARTS & LIFESTYLE -

Rap­per Kanye West, who has been out­spo­ken in his sup­port for Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump, now says he’s go­ing to fo­cus on his mu­sic and fash­ion after be­ing “used” in the world of pol­i­tics. In a se­ries of tweets, the 41-year-old West lashed out at con­ser­va­tive pun­dit Can­dace Owens for say­ing he had de­signed ap­parel for the so-called “Blexit” cam­paign, or “Black Exit” from the Demo­cratic Party. “My eyes are now wide open and now re­alise I’ve been used to spread mes­sages I don’t be­lieve in,” West wrote. “I am dis­tanc­ing my­self from pol­i­tics and com­pletely fo­cus­ing on be­ing cre­ative !!!” He did not say if his sup­port for Trump had changed in any way, but he was un­spar­ing in his crit­i­cism of Owens. “I in­tro­duced Can­dace to the per­son who made the logo and they didn’t want their name on it so she used mine. I never wanted any as­so­ci­a­tion with Blexit. I have noth­ing to do with it,” he wrote. “I would like to thank my fam­ily, loved ones, and com­mu­nity for sup­port­ing my AC­TUAL be­liefs and my vi­sion for a bet­ter world.”
