 Katy Perry loves rapper Kanye West as an artist but says his presidency would be 'a little wild' after he announced a last-minute campaign.

The 35-year-old singer gave an honest, yet diplomatic response when asked about how she feels about the Yeezy founder's controversial last-minute presidential bid, which he announced last week on Twitter.

Perry explained Friday on Hits Radio: 'What we’ve learned looking back is that the presidential job is best suited for someone with experience and that is a pro in their field.'

But she clarified that she still has respect for him: 'I love Kanye, he is amazing. I just, you know, I love him as an artist. And I think he’s an incredible disruptor as an artist and a conversation-maker as an artist. And that’s what I love the most about him.'

West, 43, caused quite the stir when he took to Twitter on the Fourth of July to announce his presidential bid.
