Succumbing to The Stupid: Kanye West

And now President Obama, in an unscripted moment, has confirmed it, saying that Kanye West was a “jackass” for ganging up on Taylor Swift at the Video Music Awards Sunday night.

HuffPo said West made his apologies on Jay Leno’s new show last night:

West said he knew he was wrong the moment he handed the microphone back to Swift, when he was bathed in boos. He had interrupted Swift on Sunday night as she accepted a best female video award for “You Belong With Me,” arguing that Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” was more deserving.

“It was rude, period,” West said. He posted a second apology to Swift on his blog on Monday, and told Leno he wanted to apologize to the country music star in person.

West took a long pause when Leno asked what his mother would have said about the incident. West was very close to his mother, Donda, who died in November 2007. He said yes when Leno asked whether his mother would have given him a lecture.

Donda would have asked Kanye to break her off a switch.

Constant recording, touring and not taking breaks isn’t an excuse for this kind of behavior. The audience, however, seemed to accept Kanye’s apologies, interrupted by rather tortured silences.

One report also said that West had been spotted chugging Hennessey on the red carpet before the show. And here it is:

Kanye, with one hand around a sistas waist, and another around the neck of his drink of choice Sunday night at the VMAs.

Kanye, Rihanna and JayZ also performed on the new Jay Leno show. The trio’s performance had been scheduled way before the VMA dustup, and I’m sure that this was part of Rihanna’s grand coming out after her and Chris “I don’t remember beating her” Brown’s recent court appearances. Unfortunately, it was just overshadowed by this latest “acting a fool” controversy.
