Katy Perry Comments on Kanye West’s Presidential Run: ‘The Job Is Best Suited for Someone With Experience’

Katy Perry offered her opinion about Kanye West running for president in a virtual interview with the U.K.’s Hits Radio on Friday (July 10).

The pop star, who called in for a 16-minute video chat about topics including her upcoming album, being in quarantine, her pregnancy and her dog’s birthday, was prompted with the question: “We all know that 2020’s one of the weirdest years so far … How do you feel about Kanye West making it even weirder by becoming president?”

Perry didn’t hesitate to share her thoughts.

“I think, you know, what we’ve learned looking back is that the presidential job is best suited for someone with experience and that is a pro in their field,” she responded.

“I think we have seen and learned from experience that when we don’t have pros in position, that it can get a little wild,” Perry added.

“I love Kanye,” said Perry. “He is amazing. I just, you know, I love him as an artist. And I think he’s an incredible disrupter as an artist and a conversation-maker as an artist. And that’s what I love the most about him.”

Watch the full interview below. Perry’s new album, Smile, is due out on Aug. 14.
