American singer Lana Del Ray called out popular rapper Kanye West for supporting US President Donald Trump as he posted a selfie wearing a MAGA hat (Make America Great Again) on his social media pages. Kanye posted the pic with a caption: “This represents good and America becoming whole again.  We will no longer outsource to other countries. We build factories here in America and create jobs.  We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment. Message sent with love.”

Lana took a dig at Kanye as she replied to him with: “Trump becoming our president was a loss for the country but your support of him is a loss of the culture. I can only assume that you can relate to his personality on some levels” and added “delusions of grandeur, extreme issues with narcissism” as maybe somethings they (Kanye and Trump) share in her reply. 

She further added, “If you think it’s alright to support someone who believes it’s OK to grab a woman by the pussy just because he’s famous-then you need an intervention as much as he does.” 

This is what Kanye posted:

Kanye and Lana have had a healthy rapport for years. Lana even performed at Kanye’s wedding to Kim Kardashian in 2014. However, it seems that the two have been on the far end of the spectrum ever since Kanye has publicly started to support Trump. Last year, Lana co-signed a viral anti-Trump witchcraft ritual to remove him from office.

Meanwhile, Kanye recently delivered a pro-Trump speech on the premiere of the 44th season of `Saturday Night Live`. Trump returned the favour by tweeting about it and wrote: "Like many, I don`t watch Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it) - no longer funny, no talent or charm. It is just a political ad for the Dems. Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told "no"), was great. He’s leading the charge!”


In another news, Kanye has now changed his name. He informed his fans of the name change on Twitter with a tweet that reads: "the being formally known as Kanye West. I am YE."
