John Legend doesn't have much good to say about Kanye West in his new joint cover story with wife Chrissy Teigen for Vanity Fair. In the writeup, Legend clarifies that he and West were "never the closest of friends" despite the fact that he's still a fan of "everything we’ve done together creatively." As for Kanye's pro-Trump stance, Legend says, "I don’t think he knows one way or another what policies of Trump’s he likes. He just kind of embraced Trump’s blow-it-all-up spirit and the energy of himself being countercultural in supporting him.” Legend adds that he finds West's new political opinions confusing because "Kanye has never been political."
