When approached by the media and informed that the "Gold Digger" rapper planned to have "Donda 2" listening parties in Australia in March of 2022, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said that's just fine as long as the billionaire agrees to get the double jab.

"They apply to everybody, as people have seen most recently," the politician continued. "It doesn’t matter who you are, they are the rules. Follow the rules – you can come. You don’t follow the rules, you can’t."

West — who is currently believed to not yet be fully vaccinated and boosted — had previously mentioned his qualms with the coronavirus vaccine, calling it "the mark of the beast" and a way for the government to "put chips inside" U.S. citizens.

“It’s so many of our children that are being vaccinated and paralyzed,” the "Flashing Lights" rapper told Forbes in July 2020. “So when they say the way we’re going to fix Covid is with a vaccine, I’m extremely cautious. That’s the mark of the beast. They want to put chips inside of us, they want to do all kinds of things, to make it where we can’t cross the gates of heaven.”

It seems that over the last year, West's views on the controversial shot may have softened. He admitted during an interview with Drink Champs last November that he had received at least one of the jabs.

“I traveled to Paris, like, a couple weeks ago and I had to go through Lisbon because you can go through Lisbon without being vaccinated,” he told the interviewer. “I only have one of the shots, so I’m half-ccinated.”

West has yet to comment further on his vaccine status or his plans for his upcoming Australian tour.
