When questioned about Kanye’s recent hospitalization, Legend says,

“This is a very difficult life and a difficult business. I don’t want to try to play pop psychologist, so I’m not gonna try to analyze what’s happening with him. I just want him to do whatever he needs to do to feel better and to feel like he’s ready to go again, because music needs him. The world needs him. I think he’s such an important talent. We need him at full strength. How do you balance everything you do—acting, producing, music, fatherhood?”

Legend then goes on saying being an artist has helped him through many things in life. He says you “start with knowing what’s most important to you. My family is most important and then second is music.” He strongly emphasizes that people should use being a celebrity “for something that’ll benefit the world too.” When Kanye met with Trump, Legend was not feeling it and called it a ‘publicity stunt.’
