“It drove me crazy to not be able to say that I like Trump,” Ye said in his exclusive “Tucker Carlson Tonight” interview that aired on Friday. “It drove – because think about it, it’s me. Imagine me not being able to say what I wanted. What is the point of being famous? What is the point of having millions of people love your music? What was the point of having a voice if you can’t even use your own voice and connect it to your own opinions? That’s where the disconnect happened. That’s where the quote, I think wrongly diagnosed, that’s where the bipolarity is. Because you got something you’re thinking, but you’re told you’re not allowed to say it in public. Well I never actually told people that I like Trump when he was running because I was bullied by Hollywood.”

Ye added that others told him he was better off “biting [his] tongue” to protect his children and his marriage

“There are so many fathers and mothers that go to work everyday, and they’re in a situation where they’re biting their tongue because they think it will be better for their children,” he said. “So even me in my position, I was biting my tongue on my political opinion because I thought it would be better for my children.”
