Singer Stephanie Mills has been paying close attention to global stars Nick Cannon and Kanye West, but so far, she’s unimpressed.
Mills went so far as to refer to them both as “paid slaves” during her harsh critique.
“I’d like to say a couple of things about, Kanye West and Nick Cannon. First, I know that Kanye is suffering mentally. I know that he is swinging high and low, and I really pray and hope that he gets help,” she said in a video shared to her social media.
Mills thinks that West should reconsider his bid for president if he’s trying to help uplift the Black community.
“But I must say that I am disappointed because if he’s trying to help our community, but running for President, it’s not helping out our community. He’s not qualified, to be President, neither is the person that’s in the White House at this time.
“Kanye is a distraction, and we’re living in some really, really trying times, where we don’t need distractions. What we need is for Kanye to get help. To get on medication, to see a therapist, and to get help. “
Cannon came under fire recently after being accused of making anti-Semitic remarks during an episode of his podcast. Following the backlash, he delivered a groveling apology before announcing that his radio show would be on pause until next year.
Cannon recently stated that he would vote for West if he did make it to the polls.
“Nick Cannon, now you? I don’t understand, because I saw you at Pops’ when he gave his speech at his talk, in Chicago not long ago. And then for you to come out and do what you did, like supporting Kanye. What is that? What is that? I don’t understand it. Kanye’s being paid to do what he’s doing, now are we to believe that you’re also being paid to be a distraction? You guys are acting like little boys in a sandbox with toys,” Mills said, scolding the radio show host.
She added, “But being that you’re acting like that, as a mother, I would like to say take your toys, go home, and sit down, and get help and get therapy. Nick you should know better, because you’ve learned and listened to the teachings, so you should know better, ’cause I just saw you. So I just think that, people are losing their homes, people can’t pay their rent, people cannot buy food for their children or their family. We have no time for you two to be out here, acting like little paid slaves, I said it.”
