Kanye West vs. Barack Obama

First Kelly Clarkson, now President Obama is slamming Kanye West for his actions at the MTV Video Music Awards last Sunday.

When asked about whether or not he was upset about the event, Obama commented, “I thought that was really inappropriate. You know it was like she’s getting an award. Why are you butting in? The young lady seems like a perfectly nice person. She’s getting her award. What he’s doing up there? He’s a jackass!”

Kelly Clarkson Slams Kanye

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Television, Rants,

Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, and Kelly ClarksonKelly Clarkson has blasted Kanye West for being “a tactless a**hole.”

The “My Life Would Suck Without You” singer is furious with the “Stronger” rapper for storming on stage at the VMAs on Sunday as Taylor Swift collected the Best Female Video prize for “You Belong To Me.”

Kelly has questioned whether Kanye’s childhood is to blame for his egotistical behavior:

“What happened to you as a child?? Did you not get hugged enough?? Something must have happened to make you this way and I think we’re all just curious as to what would make a grown man go on national television and make a talented artist, let alone teenager, feel like s**t. I mean, I’ve seen you do some pretty sh**ty things, but you just keep amazing me with your tactless, a**hole ways. It’s absolutely fascinating how much I don’t like you. I like everyone. I even like my a**hole ex that cheated on me over you… which is pretty odd since I don’t even personally know you. The best part of this evening is that you weren’t even up for THIS award and yet you still have a problem with the outcome. Is winning a moon man that much of a life goal?? You can have mine if it will shut you up. Is it that important, really (sic)??”

UPDATE: You can read Kanye’s newest apology here.

How is it possible that a 19-year-old girl has more maturity than a 32-year-old man?

Who, today, are celebrating the stunning victory of a man named . “I haven’t felt this good,” she poured out seemingly heartfelt joy for the new President-elect, the first Democrat to get into the White House since Bill Clinton - and she isn’t alone.

Kanye West Not Ready to Apologize for Airport Fight

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Music, Legal Issues, Videos,

Although it’s been almost a month since he was detained at LAX, does not appear he’s about to get past that incident anytime soon.

Back on September 11 (a horrible date for any airport arrest), the musician and his road manager were both arrested for damaging a photographer’s equipment. Although West has since been cleared of a felony charge (he only destroyed a relatively inexpensive lighting component), he could still be slapped with a misdemeanor. (It’s unclear what charges his partner-in-crime might still be dealing with.)

Needless to say, Kanye wasn’t entirely thrilled about being questioned recently by another paparazzo:

Video of Kanye West’s Airport Scuffle

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Music, Legal Issues, Videos,

UPDATE: Kanye may now be charged with a misdemeanor instead of a felony.

I’ve always heard that knew how to put on a show, and now we have the video to prove it.

The musician and a road manager were arrested this morning after an incident earlier this morning at LAX. According to TMZ, West (in a grey hoodie) for some reason became angry when he saw a still photographer trying to do what he does. Instead of brushing him off, West reached the pap’s $10,000 camera and eventually smashed it into the ground.

When Kanye’s road manager (Don Crowley) realized that another photographer was rolling on the scuffle, he then grabbed that videographer’s camera and broke it too.

Kanye West, Alexis Phifer

In the past six months, has experienced a series of highs and lows…personally and professionally.  Just last November, the rapper unexpectedly lost his mother to heart disease after a scheduled surgical procedure.  That setback led to a heartfelt performance from West at this February’s .

Now the 30-year-old artist is currently wowing fans and critics with his Glow in the Dark tour while weathering an another emotional period.  It’s been announced that his wedding to designer Alexis Phifer has been called off.  The couple, who had been engaged since 2006, had reportedly been spending less and less time together during West’s pre-tour preparations.
