Andrew W.K. Says Kim Kardashian Might Have Played a Part in Canceled Bahrain Trip

Andrew W.K. says he still hopes to venture to Bahrain to promote partying and positivity, despite the U.S. State Department's decision to cancel his trip as an official cultural ambassador last month. While he remains typically good-natured about the entire ordeal, he's still searching for reasons for the cancellation: Department officials have generally refused to offer comment, saying only that the trip was "not an appropriate use of U.S. government funds."

In an in-depth interview with Peter S. Larson, the "Party Hard" singer wondered if perhaps Kim Kardashian's milkshake tour of the Middle East might have had something to do with it.

"Some of what’s been most confusing about this is wondering how it’s connected to earlier projects we’ve been a part of, and if I was chosen for reasons that aren’t as obvious, or weren’t openly explained to me," Andrew notes. "Kim Kardashian had been scheduled to visit Bahrain the same weekend we were there. She wasn’t formally sent by the U.S., but she was there to promote an American milkshake company. 

"Apparently there were protests to her visit and some controversy in advance to her arrival. Some have speculated that maybe the State Dept. canceled my official Ambassador trip because it coincided with her unofficial visit. Of course, she has every right to visit with or without government sponsorship on our side, but it would be unusual to think of the State Dept. not wanting me to be there at the same time as her."

It sounds like a particularly glamorous conspiracy theory, but maybe Andrew is on to something. Kim's visit was met with complications, but if there's any truth to this notion, the government had it all wrong — Andrew W.K. could've easily undone any ill will through sheer force of awesomeness. Duh.
