John Legend says he hasn’t reconciled with Kanye West since Donald Trump fallout in 2018

John Legend and Kanye West

John Legend has revealed that he still hasn’t reconciled with Kanye West since the pair had a disagreement over Donald Trump in 2018.

Speaking in a new interview, the ‘All Of Me’ singer-songwriter discussed the status of his friendship with West, saying he wouldn’t consider them close, but insisted their fading friendship is “just part of the natural cycle of life.”

The former friends fell out two years ago over tweets West made in which he publicly declared his support for the controversial US president, which prompted Legend to send some text messages to him to plead that he was too powerful and influential to support Trump and asked him to reconsider.

Legend later said he was “disappointed” in West for his vocal support of Trump, and while he wasn’t going to “disown” him, he did claim they were “never the closest of friends.”

Now, Legend has said he doesn’t think that he and West are “less friends because of the Trump thing,” he just thinks they’re in “different places.”

“I don’t think we’re less friends because of the Trump thing. I just think we’re doing our own thing,” Legend told The Times. “He’s up in Wyoming [on the $14 million ranch West bought as a family home in September last year]. I’m here in LA. We’ve both got growing families and I no longer have a formal business relationship with him as an artist, so I think it’s just part of the natural cycle of life.”

Revisiting their fallout over Trump, Legend said that he and West still disagree on the matter, adding: “But what I’ve always said is, we never talked about politics before. It was never a part of our interaction. Our interaction was almost always about creativity and music.

“He’s also in a different place musically. He’s doing gospel music. That’s what he’s focused on right now, designing his clothes, so we’re in different places.”

Elsewhere in the interview, he was asked whether he would be open to attending one of West’s Sunday Service events once the lockdown is over.

“I would like to go,” he said, “and I felt like I probably would end up going, but it just never happened, and now he’s up in Wyoming.”

Meanwhile, a cinematographer has claimed that Kanye West’s new album is called ‘God’s Country’ and new music could be dropping soon.

Arthur Jafa, who has worked on music videos for Solange and Devendra Banhart, as well as films including Crooklyn, said he had been working with the rapper on a new music video.

What George Lucas Did When Queen Used Darth Vader in Their Concerts

Published

Queen and its frontman, Freddie Mercury, are some of the most enduring icons of the 1970s. Star Wars is undoubtedly the most popular film franchise that began in the 1970s. Despite their roots in the same decade, one might not associate one with the other very much.

However, the band and the film franchise crossed paths in a few ways. One was that Queen incorporated Darth Vader into their live shows. Here’s how George Lucas reacted to that.

Queen’s ‘Star Wars’ stunt

Vanity Fair says that, during some concerts in 1979 and 1980, Mercury would come onto the stage while sitting atop the shoulders of a man dressed as Darth Vader. In a famous photograph of a Queen concert, Mercury is wearing a Flash Gordon T-shirt. Flash Gordon was one of many 1980s science fiction films that were clearly intended to cash in on the wild success of Star Wars.

What made Flash Gordon different from the rest of the pack is that it boasted a soundtrack by Queen. Mercury wearing a Flash Gordon shirt while sitting on the shoulders of someone dressed as Darth Vader could be seen as clever promotion of Flash Gordon. It could also be interpreted as Mercury’s way of saying that Flash Gordon was superior to Star Wars.

Annie Zaleski of The A. V. Club spoke with Tom Callins, the photographer behind the famous image. Zaleski asked Callins who was in the Darth Vader costumeI never found out—I’ve never known. I’m sure it was a roadie that they hired, or maybe a bodyguard. I guess you had to be a pretty bulky guy to carry Freddie around.”

Zaleski also asked Callins how the crowd reacted to Mercury’s stunt.” Oh, it was pandemonium. Everybody just thought it was so funny, so Freddie. It was so over-the-top…Everybody got into it.” The fact that fans of Queen’s hard rock music enjoyed it showed that Star Wars had appeal beyond the sci-fi fan demographic.

Although Mercury’s stunt went over well with his audience, not everyone liked it. Star Wars creator George Lucas was not a fan. In fact, Is This the Real Life?: The Untold Story of Queen says Lucas threatened Queen with a lawsuit to prevent them from using Darth Vader in their concerts again. The threat served its intended purpose and Queen stopped incorporating the dark lord of the Sith into their act.

Darth Vader wasn’t the only iconic fiction character Queen incorporated into their act. They also performed shows where Mercury came on stage while seated on the shoulders of someone dressed as Superman. Notably, the Superman film franchise was at its peak around the same time Mercury pulled this stunt. 

Mercury’s stunt is one of the most memorable in the history of Queen and the history of Star Wars. Lucas clearly didn’t like it. However, the stunt proved Star Wars had the ability to connect with many audiences.
