Travis Scott Refuses to Talk About Politics Out of Fear of Criticism

In an interview with Nas for Playboy’s Spring 2019 #TheSpeechIssue, Travis Scott says he does not talk about politics because he fears being misinterpreted.

Sometimes you just don’t want to speak too much on stuff you don’t know much about. It’s not like I’m not thinking about what’s going on in the world. I’m an expressive artist but with the media it gets misconstrued.

One can only assume his fear stems from what he has seen happen to Kanye West in the media.

How do you feel about artists speaking about their political views? Do you want to know their views or do you prefer not to know?
