So… nothing surprising here.
Ye, as he is now known, announced that he plans to invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to a special performance of his Sunday Service choir as a guest. He’s also working on “unspecified” deals with Aras and Emin Agalarov, billionaire developers with “significant ties to both Trump and the Russian government.” This coincides with a planned Moscow visit this spring/summer with the intent to make it a “second home.”

The takeaway quote:
“This is Ye, Ye is going to get there regardless. What are they going to say? He’s going to be a special guest of the Agalarovs,” Ameer Sudan, West’s strategic advisor said. “Kanye knows what’s going on more than the average human being, he’s well aware of things. And it’s nothing against the United States or to cause conflicts, but Ye is Ye — he can’t be controlled.”
Also in Ye News:
Kanye West has been named a suspect on an alleged battery early Thursday morning after allegedly punching a fan… and LAPD is investigating.
Law enforcement sources tell us … Ye got into some sort of argument that allegedly turned physical around 3 AM in DTLA. We’re told the incident occurred near the Soho Warehouse. We do not know if Ye was at Soho before the incident, but given the time, it seems likely.
We’re told Kanye allegedly pushed and then punched a male fan … the case is being investigated as misdemeanor battery … a crime that carries a maximum jail sentence of 6 months.
More on this as it develops.
