Is Timothee Chalamet a Kanye West fan?
In multiple videos surfaced on the Internet, Timothee Chalamet’s love for Kanye West’s music can be seen clearly. While playing the track out loud on a speaker, the young star raps to the song’s lyrics, “Don't care what you say, nothin' on me/I don't care 'bout the lawyer fees/ I don't care 'bout your loyalties/ God will solve it all for me/ Trust man, he a failure/ Trust, and God'll heal ya'/ Dustin, he a Hoffman.” Looking at his loud body language, it appears Chalamet thoroughly enjoyed the track with his close pals.
For the unversed, the two-time Golden Globe-winning actor once had a rare fan moment when he got to dine with the Grammy-winning rapper himself- all thanks to Chalamet’s idol Kid Cudi, who is a very close friend of Kanye. In December 2019, Chalamet spilled the beans on his interaction with Kanye he had in early 2019 after he appeared on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’. On the show how revealed he got to meet Kanye after Cudi invited him over dinner on the occasion of his birthday. “I just texted [Cudi] on the morning of his birthday and he said to come to dinner. I did not know that’s what I was walking into.” The actor revealed that he was shocked to see Kanye and Kim Kardashian at the party where Pete Davidson was also present.
“We were hanging out and then it feels like it was an earthquake in the restaurant. It was like epic. You feel the energy and I turned around and I was like, ‘Holy s**t’.” He added: “I went to the bathroom. Seriously I sent a text to friends like, ‘Am I worth…like does this make sense?’ And they were like, ‘Man, 16-year-old you would slap the shit out of you. You go back to the table’.” Chalamet then confessed that he felt more at ease and had “a good time” after returning to his table of high-profile pals.
