Kanye West made headlines recently because he announced he’s planning to run for President of the United States, and although a lot of his peers in the music industry support his dream, not everyone is pleased with the news.

Apparently Eagles singer Don Henley doesn’t see it for Ye.

In a recent interview with The Guardian, he says:

“He won’t be president. He’s either incredibly arrogant or incredibly insecure, or some combination of the two.”

Click next to find out what he had to say about Frank Ocean.

  1. Now I don’t give a f-ck about someone going in on Kanye because he’s a sellout, but this a-shole sounds like the typical white racist piece of sh-t who swears any form of black music is inferior even though black people are the ones who invented rock music. F-ck him.

    1. Now you know I love you but I don’t think this dude is racist. He did like Browstone’s cover I Cant Tell You Why. I just don’t think he likes Kanye or Frank. Not everyone does. Miguel is better than Frank and gets way less praise. And well Kanye just isn’t likable.

      1. Totally agree! I love The Eagles music and if Frank sampled their music without permission or if the disliked tbe final product, they have every right to be pissed off. Most of us have no use for Kanye and it’s good to see that his arrogance and unlikabilty is evident to others as well. I see nothing wrong with what Don said.

  2. Frank Ocean is very talented. He’s a great songwriter hands down even though I don’t think he’s a great singer. This man needs to shut up because most people don’t consider the Eagles to be a standout rock group like that.

  3. I remember Frank didn’t pay for the sample or something like that, so what he said about Frank is personal. I can understand why he’s still upset about it. I don’t care too much about what he said about Kanye either.

      1. Well it’s conflicting reports because some say Frank didn’t pay because he didn’t make money from the mixtape and then some are saying Don got screwed out of publishing so he’s mad he doesn’t get royalty checks.

  4. This man has been mad at Frank for years. Frank should have paid for the sample but he decided to be smug about it on his blog basically and said the man should be happy he’s paying homage. LOL.

  5. I also wanted to add Don Henley is an avid Obama supporter. This isn’t a race issue. This is a music issue. This man just knows Kanye and Frank are overrated.
