What a year it's been for one Mr Kanye West.

Despite releasing a handful of acclaimed albums, the rapper's return to Twitter was chaotic, to say the least.

Then he started to get political and aligned himself with Donald Trump. That's where things started to go really wrong for the 41-year-old.

This all came to a head with his bizarre meeting with Trump at the White House, which seemed to confuse the president as much as everyone else.

This came after a series of tweets where Kanye attempted to clarify his stances on several controversial issues that he appears to have supported throughout this year.
