Celebrities Sound Off About Kanye West For President

What Ice Cube, Chelsea Clinton and more say about rapper's potential 2020 bid.

"I'm voting for Kanye. Why not?" the "Straight Outta Compton" star told the Daily Mail newspaper. "Who's better than Kanye to run?"

West rocked the music and political establishments when he announced to the world that he was planning to run for political office.

Sister-in-law Khloe Kardashian was quick to show her approval.

Since then, a slew of stars have also chimed in:

Chelsea Clinton

"I definitely think who runs for office is really important," Clinton told MTV News while supporting the Clinton Foundation's No Ceilings Project. "Even if him just saying that helps sparks a little boy or a little girl who was watching the VMAs to think, ‘Oh, wow! Maybe I should do that,' that's awesome."

After Swift introduced West before the Vanguard award, some suggested she would make a great running mate. Swift seemed at least open to the idea when she posted this photo on Instagram, writing, "Awwww Kanye sent me the coolest flowers!! #KanTay2020 #BFFs"

"I guess he'll actually do it. He's pretty much a man of his word, so I'll be curious to see what his platform is. And who he's running against," Williams told Cosmopolitan magazine at the U.S. Open opening gala. "It's fascinating, and everyone has the right to do whatever they want to do."

"I think it's fantastic," Baldwin told Cosmo. "I think anybody participating in politics, running -- it's too elitist now, too many elites. Even though Kanye himself is an elite, he's a different kind of elite."

Groban was more focused on West's wife Kim Kardashian as first lady.

"Her fashion would be extraordinary," he told Cosmo. "She'd kill it."

"You know, he's got some time, I guess," Chlumsky told Cosmo. "Crazier things have happened. We've had entertainers in the White House before."

"Why not? Trump is making a shot at it," Rowland said, making it clear who she'd vote for in a contest between the two. "I would definitely vote for Kanye," she said.

Rihanna also brought up Trump.

"I mean people are voting for [Donald] Trump," Rihanna told "Entertainment Tonight." "Who wouldn't vote for Kanye? ... His speech was incredible."

As for the Donald himself, he welcomed the competition.

"He's actually a different kind of person than people think," the real estate mogul and Republican presidential candidate told Rolling Stone. "He's a nice guy. I hope to run against him someday."
