Kanye West "absolutely" has "political aspirations" for the future.
The 45-year-old rapper and Yeezy designer had a disastrous bid to become President of the United States in 2020, with the outspoken star rumoured to have lost more than $14 million on his campaign.
Despite this, the 'Stronger' hitmaker hasn't been put off running for president in the future and believes God didn't feel it was his time.
Speaking to ABC’s Linsey Davis for ‘A Conversation With Ye’, the record producer – who legally changed his name to Ye – was asked if he has “future political aspirations," to which he replied: “Yes. Absolutely. You know, it’s… That time wasn’t in God’s time. I’m sure there’s lives that were saved. I’m sure God had me fall on the sword and say, ‘This is not the time,’ but you know, he’s a redeemer.”
In November, Kanye confessed that he "embarrassed" his then-wife Kim Kardashian with his failed presidential bid and his political views were "hard" on his marriage.
The hip-hop legend ran for office as an independent candidate but only appeared on the presidential ballot in 12 of the 50 states, and in his one and only press conference for his campaign, he admitted he and the reality star had considered an abortion when she fell pregnant with their first child, nine-year-old daughter North.
And reflecting on the period, the 'Jesus Walks' star admitted Kim "did not like" him affiliating himself with former President Donald Trump by wearing a red 'MAGA' cap and he had made them a "target" with his outspoken views.
He said in a 'Thanksgiving prayer' shared online: "Let's go with politics here. Good Lord, my wife did not like me wearing the red hat. Being a good wife, [Kim] wanted to protect me and our family.
"I made me and our family a target by not aligning with Hollywood's political stance and that was hard for our marriage.
"Then I ran for president without proper preparation and no allies on either side.
"I embarrassed my wife in the way that I presented information about our family during the one and only, thank God, press conference.
"All my dad had to say afterwards was, 'Write your speech next time son.'"
Kanye also admitted he had "spent money like crazy".
He told listeners: "It's the craziest thing I've done and I've done a lot of crazy things."
Kim filed for divorce from Kanye – with whom she also has Saint, six, Chicago, four, and three-year-old Psalm – in February.
Meanwhile, Kanye recalled being played "under heavy medication" after a manic episode in 2016 and it is something that still affects him.
He said: "Since then I went on and off the medication which left me susceptible to other episodes which my wife and family and fans have had to endure.
"My ego has a tendency to go past the threshold of being motivating and entertaining to just being overbearing. There are ways to show confidence without arrogance."

Taylor Swift has written her first ever song with a swear word in the title.
The pop star is preparing to release her new album 'Midnights' in October and she's been playing an online lottery game with fans to announce the track list with the singer videoing herself picking numbered ping pong balls which correspond to a track on the album – and on Thursday she chose number number eight and revealed the title is 'Vigilante S**t'.
It's the first time Taylor has used a curse word in one of her song titles, although she has previously used profanities in her lyrics.
Taylor previously described the album as a collection of songs based on 13 sleepless nights over the last few years in which she got up to jot down lyrics.
Announcing the new project, she wrote in a statement posted online: "This is a collection of music written in the middle of the night, a journey through terrors and sweet dreams. The floors we pace and the demons we face. For all of us who have tossed and turned and decided to keep the lanterns lit and go searching – hoping that just maybe, when the clock strikes twelve… we’ll meet ourselves."
Taylor plans to continue announcing the track titles in her 'Midnights Mayhem With Me' series on TikTok. She debuted the series on Tuesday and confirmed the name of the 13th track on the album is 'Mastermind'. She's expected to continue releasing the videos until she's named all 13 songs.
'Midnights' is slated for release on October 21.

Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin did not have a prenuptial agreement when they tied the knot.
An order of abatement from the exes was granted in court documents obtained by TMZ on Thursday.
And while they didn't sign a prenup when they got married in May 1997, the pair are confident they can agree on a divorce settlement and do so in private out of court.
The order obtained by PEOPLE reads: "The Parties agree that is in the best interests of each of them individually, and more importantly collectively as a family, to resolve all issues attendant to the dissolution of their marriage in a dignified, amicable, and private manner out-of-court."
Flavin filed a petition "for dissolution of marriage and other relief" at a court in Florida on August 19.
Stallone – who has daughters Scarlet, 20, Sistine, 24, and Sophia, 26, with his wife – subsequently said in a statement: "I love my family. We are amicably and privately addressing these personal issues."
However, Flavin accused Stallone of hiding marital assets.
The 54-year-old model accused the Hollywood star of hiding assets.
Court documents read: "Upon information and belief, the Husband has engaged in the intentional dissipation, depletion and/or waste of marital assets which has had an adverse economic impact on the marital estate. Pursuant to Section 61.075, Florida Statues, equity dictates that the Wife be compensated and made whole by receiving an unequal distribution of the marital assets in her favour. Moreover, the Husband should be enjoined from, selling, transferring, assigning, encumbering, or dissipating any assets during the pendency of proceedings."
Stallone, 76, denied trying to "waste" joint marital assets.
The 'Rambo' actor formally responded to his estranged spouse's divorce petition and dismissed her allegation he had “engaged in the intentional dissipation, depletion and/or waste of marital assets which has had an adverse economic impact on the marital estate."
The Hollywood icon's legal team insisted he had “not engaged” in such behaviour, while also opposing her request for “exclusive” use of their Palm Beach home.

Amber Heard "doesn't care" who Johnny Depp dates.
The 36-year-old actress was married to 'Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny, 59, from 2015 until 2016 before the couple became embroiled in a $100 million defamation lawsuit- which Johnny won – and is reportedly indifferent to who he chooses to see now, amid reports that he is now dating lawyer Joelle Rich.
A source told 'Entertainment Tonight': "Amber isn't paying attention to Johnny or his personal life. She doesn't care who he dates and just wants to move forward with her life."
The comments come just hours after it was reported that the 'Edward Scissorhands' star has struck up a relationship with lawyer Joelle, 37, – who has worked with the likes of Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex – after she worked for him on his libel case against The Sun newspaper back in 2020, which he eventually lost.
A source said: "Their chemistry is off the charts. It’s serious between them. They are the real deal."
The insider went on to note that while Joelle – who did not work on his defamation case – had no "professional" obligation to be present for the hearing back in June, she attended the Virginia courtroom to show her “support” for Johnny and claimed that the pair had been "meeting up" in hotel rooms in the early days of their romance.
The source added: "There was no professional obligation for her being there. It was personal. She wanted to show her support. [Johnny and Joelle' discreetly met up in hotel rooms during the early stages."

Demi Lovato didn't think she would reach the age of 30.
The chart-topping pop star celebrated her milestone birthday on August 20 – but Demi was surprised to reach the landmark after suffering a near-fatal drug overdose in 2018.
Demi explained: "That's something I thought was impossible to do. Even in bouts of sobriety, my depression was so strong that I didn't think I'd get here today. But here I am."
The 'Cool for the Summer' hitmaker suffered multiple strokes, a heart attack, and even brain damage after taking an overdose.
But Demi is now looking forward to the future and is even hopeful of starting a family one day.
She told SPIN Magazine: "I'm in a new chapter in my life, and I don't know what my 30s have in store for me, but hopefully a family one day."
Demi has struggled with alcoholism and drug addiction during her career.
But the 'Sorry Not Sorry' hitmaker thinks she's actually been too candid about her struggles over recent years.
She shared: "As I get older, I'm trying to learn to be more private.
"I think I do give too much insight to people into my life, and I have to think, do people deserve that?
"I'm sure by the time I'm 35, my mouth will be glued shut because I'm tired of talking about myself. And I'm sure people are tired of hearing me talk about myself."
Demi shot to fame as a child, starring in the hit children's TV series 'Barney and Friends'.
But, on reflection, she now regrets getting involved in the entertainment industry at such an early age.
She said: "I’ll always look at child stardom, at what I went through, as something traumatic for me.
"No child should ever be in the limelight. It’s too much pressure.
"There’s an absence of childhood that you never get to experience. It makes things confusing because you develop problems from that experience, whether it’s addiction or trust issues or financial stress. It follows you into adulthood."

Queen Consort Camilla is to keep using her privately-owned home in Wiltshire.
The 75-year-old royal bought six-bedroom Ray Mill in Wiltshire – which is just a short distance from her husband King Charles' private residence Highgrove – over 25 years ago after she divorced first husband Andrew Parker Bowles and enjoys the relaxed surroundings away from official residences, and she has no plans to sell the "treasured" abode because it allows her to truly switch off from public duties.
A source told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: “If you consider that Highgrove is the most relaxed of the King’s residences, even there you are always surrounded by a team of private staff including a chef, a butler and police on every corner, so there is no true private time.
“The King has grown up with that all of his life, so it’s not such a burden for him to exist in that observed world, but the Queen Consort has spent most of her life as a private citizen – so she understands the meaning of shutting your front door and having a place to yourself.
“Ray Mill is the only place where she can literally and metaphorically kick off her shoes and spend time with family and friends in a really informal setting.
“It’s an escape from royal life and it will be treasured even more greatly now.”
According to the outlet, royal staff also see a practical side to Camilla keeping Ray Mill – where she retreated to last week during a break from official duties following the death of Queen Elizabeth – because if she were to outlive her husband, she would be able to return to Ray Mill without causing difficulties for his successor, Prince William.
It also gives her a property she can pass on to her own children, Tom Parker Bowles and Laura Lopes.
Charles and Camilla are currently staying on the Balmoral estate in Scotland, where the queen died last month. The king is expected to spend time at Birkhall, the large house on the estate he inherited from the Queen Mother and what he is said to view as his "true home".
As well as Highgrove, Charles also owns a large cottage in Wales and has inherited the Balmoral and Sandringham estates, which were privately owned by the queen.
In addition, as monarch, Charles has the use of Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh and Hillsborough Castle near Belfast.
Many other royal residences, including Clarence House, Kensington Palace, and St. James's Palace, also belong to him in his capacity as king.

A number of original 'Beverly Hills Cop' cast members are returning for the new sequel.
Judge Reinhold, John Ashton, Paul Reiser and Bronson Pinchot have signed up to reunite with Eddie Murphy in 'Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley', the long-awaited fourth movie in the action comedy series.
Reinhold and Ashton are reprising their roles as police officers Billy Rosewood and John Taggart – the sidekick cops to Murphy's Axel Foley.
Reiser starred as Foley's Detroit cop partner Jeffrey Friedman in the first two films and Pinchot was the sassy art gallery salesman Serge.
Mark Molloy is directing the film from a screenplay by Will Beall. Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah had been on board but left the project to direct the shelved 'Batgirl' flick.
The new 'Beverly Hills Cop' picture will be released on Netflix with Jerry Bruckheimer, Chad Oman and Melissa Reid producing with Murphy for Jerry Bruckheimer Films.
The original movie was released in 1984 and saw Eddie star as a Detroit police officer who goes to Beverly Hills to solve the murder of his best friend. Sequels followed in 1987 and 1994.
The storyline for the new film has not been disclosed but the movie has started production. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Taylour Paige are both set to appear in the project.
Eddie had previously suggested that he would only return to the 'Beverly Hills Cop' franchise if the script was right.
The 61-year-old star said: "They've been trying to make another 'Beverly Hills Cop' for 15 years now.
"Right now, Netflix has it, and they're trying to develop a script. That's what we're supposed to be doing next. But, I'm not doing nothing until the script is right."

Prince Philip's UFO investigation could be released following the death of Queen Elizabeth.
The prince developed a fascination with aliens after a bricklayer reported a close encounter with extra terrestrial life at the home of Lord Louis Mountbatten, Philip's late uncle – but until now, his investigative work into UFO sightings in the UK has remained under wraps.
Philip – who died in April 2021, aged 99 – has been credited with creating a so-called Royal X-Files on the subject of space and alien life.
And the royal family are now facing calls for the investigation to be made public, the Daily Star newspaper reports. The work previously remained a secret during the reign of the queen.
Nick Pope, the ex-Ministry Of Defence official who was in charge of the UK government’s UFO desk between 1991 and 1994, claims that Philip and Sir Peter Horsley – his ex-RAF associate – spent years investigating alien sightings.
He said: "[Philip] kept an eye on developments, subscribed to UFO magazines and newsletters and had witnesses interviewed."
He also claimed Philip's interest in the subject was deliberately kept under wraps during the reign of the late monarch as it would've caused a stir.
Nick told 'History TV': "This is highly sensitive. Here you have the queen’s husband investigating UFOs. Had the news got out it would have caused a sensation."
Lord Mountbatten – who was assassinated in August 1979 – and Prince Philip are said to have "talked extensively" about the possibility of extra terrestrial life.
And Richard Dolan – an expert on the UFO subject – is convinced that the late monarch was aware of the conversations between Philip and his uncle.
He said: "You have to assume Queen Elizabeth knew."

Johnny Depp is reportedly dating his former lawyer Joelle Rich.
The 59-year-old actor is said to have struck up a relationship with lawyer Joelle, 37, after she worked with him on his libel case against The Sun newspaper back in 2018.
A source told UsWeekly: "Their chemistry is off the charts. It’s serious between them. They are the real deal."
The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star, who was previously married to 'Aquaman' actress Amber Heard, lost his libel case against the British tabloid but won a defamation case against his ex-wife, in which she alleged that she had claimed to have been a victim of alleged domestic abuse throughout their marriage for a magazine article.
The insider went on to note that while Joelle, who did not work on his defamation case, had no "professional" obligation to be present for the hearing back in June, she attended the Virginia courtroom to show her “support” for Johnny and claimed that the pair had been "meeting up" in hotel rooms in the early days of their romance.
The source told UsWeekly: "There was no professional obligation for her being there. It was personal. She wanted to show her support. [Johnny and Joelle' discreetly met up in hotel rooms during the early stages."
It comes after the news that the story infamous defamation trial is to be the subject of a new film and has been "fast-tracked" into production.
Melissa Marty has been cast as Johnny's lawyer, Camille Vasquez, while Marry Carrig will portray Elaine Bredehoft, who served as Amber's attorney.
Sara Lohman will direct from a script by Guy Nicolucci.
Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer, Tubi, said in a statement: "With our partners at MarVista, this Tubi Original was fast-tracked into production to capture a timely take on a story that became part of the cultural zeitgeist, painting a unique picture of what millions watched play out in the headlines over the summer."

Kanye West has apologized to Kim Kardashian for causing her stress.
The 45-year-old rap star and Kim, 41, finalized their divorce earlier this year, but in a promotional clip from his upcoming interview on 'Good Morning America', Kanye has offered a heartfelt apology to his ex-wife.
The chart-topping rapper – who has North, nine, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, three, with Kim – says: "This is the mother of my children. I apologize for any stress that I have caused."
Kanye has often turned to social media platforms to discuss his issues with Kim over recent months.
But the 'Stronger' hitmaker has rubbished the suggestion that social media is inherently negative.
Asked if platforms such as Instagram and Twitter are more "hurtful or beneficial" overall, Kanye replied: "Oh, that’s one of my favourite questions this interview.
"I mean, we can use a car to rush somebody to a hospital – or we could use a car and accidentally hit somebody while we’re rushing somebody to the hospital. So it’s all in how we use it."
Meanwhile, Kim recently claimed that she's doesn't care what people think of her.
The reality star – who split from comedian Pete Davidson earlier this year – insisted she's learned how to deal with outside "noise" with the help of her family.
Kim shared: "It has gotten easier ‘cause I think you just get to a level where you see that so much of it is noise, and we have each other, we have us as a support system.
"I couldn't do it without my family. Just because when there's maybe a little too much noise everyone's there just to be like, ‘OK we know what's real. We know what's happening. This doesn't matter. Let's all just come back to what we know, and that's each other.' And I feel so grateful that we had all of those experiences at the same time so we can really lean on each other."

Brad Pitt has dubbed George Clooney and Paul Newman the "most handsome men."
The 'Bullet Train' star, 58, joked that he had to pick his 'Ocean's' co-star and close pal, George Clooney, 61, as the hottest male on the planet right now, while late Hollywood icon Newman, who was 83 when he died in 2008, is his choice for the past because of how he "aged so gracefully."
Asked by Vogue who the "most handsome men in the world past and present" are, Pitt replied: “You know in the acting world because it’s my day job … the immediate go-to is Paul Newman.
“Because he aged so gracefully.
“And by all reports [he was] a really special, giving, warm and truthful human being.”
Speaking about silver fox Clooney, he quipped: “If I was gonna name someone present, well I gotta name that George Clooney f***** because why not?”
He added: “Because usually, I’m always taking him out, and he’s always taking me out. And this time, I’m gonna go the other way, just this once.”
The pair are known to poke fun at each other.
Last year, Clooney joked that he was really looking forward to working with "cheap" Pitt again.
He said: "He's a friend of mine and we have a really good time together. I'm really looking forward to it."
Clooney then quipped: "Brad was obviously the cheapest of the actors available."
Meanwhile, the pals look set to reunite with Matt Damon for a new 'Ocean's' movie.
The Hollywood trio previously starred together in the 2007 heist movie, 'Ocean’s Thirteen', and they're now poised to reunite for the latest film in the money-spinning franchise.
A source told The Sun newspaper last week: "Rumours of a film starring George, Brad and Matt have swirled for years but the timing was off and their jam-packed schedules meant that it was just not possible.
"Finally the right team for the job has come together in a bid to make it a huge success and the main stars thought it would be good fun to revisit.
"The franchise is hugely popular and the brilliant storyline was an opportunity that was too good to miss."

Shakira says the tax fraud allegations made against her are "false."
The 45-year-old pop star is being accused of fraud and faces up to eight years in prison after allegedly racking up six separate counts of tax fraud totalling £12.2 million, but has decided to fight the allegations and insisted that she did not spend more than 183 days in the country, which would lead the Spanish government to count her as an official citizen.
She said: "I have to fight for what I believe; because these are false accusations. First of all, I didn’t spend 183 days per year at that time at all. I was busy fulfilling my professional commitments around the world. Second, I’ve paid everything they claimed I owed, even before they filed a lawsuit. So as of today, I owe zero to them. And finally, I was advised by one of the four biggest tax specialist firms in the world, PricewaterhouseCoopers, so I was confident that I was doing things correctly and transparently from day one."
The 'Objection' hitmaker – who is also facing a fine of £19.2 million – went on to describe the claims made by the Spanish government as "fictitious" and claimed that the authorities often do this to celebrities as well as the "regular taxpayer."
She told ELLE: "However, even without evidence to support these fictional claims, as they usually do, they’ve resorted to a salacious press campaign to try to sway people, and apply pressure in the media along with the threat of reputational damage in order to coerce settlement agreements. It is well known that the Spanish tax authorities do this often not only with celebrities like me (or [Cristiano] Ronaldo, Neymar, [Xabi] Alonso, and many more), but it also happens unjustly to the regular taxpayer. It’s just their style. But I’m confident that I have enough proof to support my case and that justice will prevail in my favour."
The GRAMMY Award-winning star – who was born as Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll in Colombia – is accused of pretending
to live abroad to avoid paying tax despite moving to Barcelona in 2011 to be with her ex, 35-year-old Spanish footballer Gerard Piqué, with whom she has sons Milan, nine and seven-year-old Sasha.
Tax inspectors are said to have spent more than a year checking up on the 'Whenever, Wherever' songstress and even visited her usual hairdressers in Barcelona before trawling through her social media to try to show she spent most of the three years in dispute in
They concluded she had spent 242 days in Spain in 2012, 212 days in 2013 and 243 days in the country in 2014.
The report prosecutors submitted alleged the time she spent out of Spain were “sporadic absences” linked to work.
When the case was first brought to light back in July 2022,, a representative for Shakira said: "Shakira has always cooperated and abided by the law, demonstrating impeccable conduct as an individual and a taxpayer, and faithfully following the counsel of
PriceWaterhouse Coopers, a prestigious and globally recognized tax firm. Unfortunately, the Spanish Tax Office, which loses one out of every two lawsuits with its taxpayers, continues to violate her rights and pursue yet another baseless case. Shakira is confident that her innocence will be proven by the end of the judicial process.”
