Here's Why Kerry Washington Gets Texts That Are Actually For Kanye West

Kerry Washington revealed that she often gets text messages that are actually meant for Kanye West and she explained why.

“We are friendly,” Kerry said during her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “We have a lot of friends in common. We’re not really friends, but we have a lot of friends in common. And, actually, about once a year…I think a lot of people have us programmed in their phones as KW. So, I’ll get a text, like once a year where I’m like, ‘That is not for me.’”

Kerry actually was name checked in Kanye‘s 2018 song “All Mine.”

“If I pull up with a Kerry Washington / That’s gon’ be an enormous scandal,” Jimmy Kimmel read the lyrics aloud to Kerry. “Why does it sound so bad when I say it?”

“I woke up that morning and my phone was, like, vibrating,” she said of the day the song dropped. “I did not get a heads up.”
