James Kennedy Says He Is White Kanye, Even Changes Twitter Name

James Kennedy is more than just a guy on Vanderpump Rules. James is really into his music, and now the reality star is speaking out and saying that he calls himself the White Kanye. Real Mr. Housewife got the chance to talk to James Kennedy, and he shared why he thinks that he is the White Kanye. James actually even changed his Twitter name, which had his fans curious what was going on with Kennedy.


James Kennedy started out explaining that he is a big fan of Kanye West and has been since Kanye started his career years ago. James likes the way that Kanye produces music on top of his singing. James Kennedy still totally stands by the fact that he called himself the White Kanye and doesn’t see a problem with it at all. James knows some people are upset about it, but he doesn’t care.

“Kanye as a person never doubted himself. If you go to some of his earliest interviews he is the same Kanye that we see today. Before he had anything he was the same Kanye we see today. I think I’m like him in the sense that I explore sound I want to create something nobody has ever heard or seen before and I have nothing stopping me, the only thing that could possibly stop me is myself. Life is what you make it and I respect what he has made for himself, not to mention I do make some fire music in the studio regardless of what the haters want to say. I know I do.”

Some people may not be fans of Kanye West, but James Kennedy obviously has a lot of great things to say about him. James Kennedy even said that there is only one thing he doesn’t have in common with Kanye West and that is the fact that James doesn’t mind the paparazzi the way that Kanye does. James Kennedy is still working hard on his music career, and his song with Lala Kent will be coming out very soon. This song was shared when they were working on it on an episode of Vanderpump Rules.


Another thing that went down this week was that Lala Kent was invited back to Watch What Happens Live and James Kennedy wasn’t invited back. He did share his thoughts on that one, too.

“When I first heard about Lala getting on Watch What Happens Live, I must say I was a little confused as to why she was invited back and I wasn’t. I thought she was given another chance and I wasn’t and that made me feel very uncomfortable and on edge about the whole situation. However after I saw how great she looked and after how great she made her come back from the last time I was very proud and happy for her.”

Reality Tea shared that James Kennedy is moving on to someone new now and is no longer dating Lala Kent. James has been sharing all about his new girlfriend Raquel and the two seem very serious. It looks like James is doing great and moving on just fine from his time with Lala Kent, even though the two are still really close friends. James hasn’t been shy about his new relationship at all and fans can’t wait to see if she shows up on next season of Vanderpump Rules.
