Kanye West is up to one of his stunts again. The rapper is pulling a Diddy by changing his name to something fans already refer to him by — ‘Ye.’
The announcement was made on the “I Love It” musician’s Twitter.
“the being formally known as Kanye West I am YE.”
This comes before his rumored-to-be epic performance on “Saturday Night Live.”
The Chicago native revealed that he was dropping another new album titled “Yandhi” on September 29.
Ye has been following a new philosophy in which every action he makes, he will make with the intention of love.
The artist is determined to spread love everywhere he goes and is spending time learning new words and teachings.
He was invited to perform on “SNL” as a replacement for Ariana Grande.
The pop songstress pulled out due to “emotional reasons” which is understandable considering that she’s currently suffering from severe anxiety due to the devastating loss of her boyfriend Mac Miller.
Kim Kardashian is currently in New York City supporting her husband but is reportedly nervous about what he might say on the live broadcast due to his recent inflammatory comments and actions.
Hollywood Life reports: “She loves him with all her heart, but she has no idea what statements might come out of this mouth. Ever since he was slammed for his comments about slavery, Kim has become nervous over his public appearances. he fears that Kanye might say or do something controversial during his ‘Saturday Night Live’ appearance and she knows there is not much she can do about it, which terrifies her.”
Ye addressed Kim’s past anxiety from his actions in the song “Wouldn’t leave” where he details the conversation they had after his TMZ appearance.
What do you think of the name change? How do you think Ye’s performance will be?
