Kanye West dumps Trump and says he had COVID-19, Nick Cordero's wife shares new pictures from his phone, and Demi Lovato works to enact change

The singer is currently raffling off some memorable items for fans who help to make a difference in the country

LOS ANGELES — The latest on Kanye West's run for President, the never-before-seen pictures of late Broadway star Nick Cordero, and how Demi Lovato is using her platform to change the United States. These are the top headlines around Hollywood. 

Kanye West, who recently announced he is running for President of the United States, is telling all in a brand-new interview with Forbes magazine

West, a previous supporter of President Donald Trump, told the publication "I am taking off the red hat, with this interview." 

"Yeezy" also revealed in the reportedly four-hour phone interview that he has already chosen a prospective V.P. candidate, that he has never voted before, and that he plans to campaign under a new platform: The Birthday Party. 

The rapper also told Forbes that he allegedly had COVID-19 back in February and that his symptoms included "chills and shaking in the bed," but it would appear that he is feeling better now.

Broadway star Nick Cordero may be gone, but his memory is living on in the hearts of fans, and those close to him. 

The "Waitress" and "A Bronx Tale" star passed away earlier this week after a months-long battle with COVID-19. 

Cordero's wife, Amanda Kloots, took to Instagram Tuesday to share never-before-seen pictures and videos of the "Bullets Over Broadway" star after going through his phone. 

Kloots shared photos of her and Cordero's one-year-old son, Elvis, along with pics of the actor during some happy moments, including buying their first car, a family picnic, and taking Elvis for a walk. 

What a great way to remember him. 

And Demi Lovato is using her platform to do some serious good. 

The singer and actor has partnered with Propeller to raffle off items from her own closet, to bring about social change. 

"Join me in taking action for racial justice, COVID-19 relief, and getting ready to vote" the singer said, "because we need change more than ever before." 

Fans can earn raffle entries by completing actions like registering to vote, signing petitions, and donating to change organizations. 

"The only way to win is to take action," Lovato said on Instagram, "sign petitions, donate, educate yourself, then educate those around you." 

The more work you do, the more entries you receive. 

Good luck.
