Will Nick Jonas support Kanye West as his VP? Nick has expressed interest in running for office in the past, and the stars are about to align for his dream to come true — here’s the evidence!
Nick Jonas, 22, has said before that he’d like to run for office, and now that Kanye West, 38, has announced his 2020 bid, we think that Nick would make the perfect VP! Nick told HollywoodLife.com in an interview that he would like to work with Kanye, and though we wouldn’t mind if they decided to make music together, this would be the perfect opportunity for a collaboration on a whole other level!
Nick Jonas is always happy to discuss two topics: his music, and his desire to be in the White House. At the MTV VMAs on Aug. 30, HollywoodLife.com asked Nick what his dream collaboration would be. “Kanye!” Nick said. “I would love [to make that happen].” Well, we would love to see you make that happen musically, but why not politically, too? Nick told us EXCLUSIVELY back in May 2010 at the HollywoodLife Young Hollywood Awards that he is “absolutely serious” about stepping into President Obama’s shoes one day. He was only seventeen at the time, but even then he was thinking about his future in politics!
Other Times Nick Jonas Has Expressed Interest In Being A World Leader
Nick Jonas’ river of political interest runs deep. He told Parade magazine in April 2010 that he aims to sit behind a desk in the White House one day. Besides the fact that he literally had a band called Nick Jonas and the Administration, his family calls him “Mr. Prez.” “It was a joke at first,” he told Parade. “Then, I thought, ‘Man, it actually would be cool to run for President one day.'” Too bad Nick has to wait to be 35 to run for vice pres — which won’t be until 2040 — but maybe the rules will change before then!
HollywoodLifers, should Nick Jonas run with Kanye as his vice president? Let us know!
