Mom + Kanye + Me

Well we all know what Kanye did. Perhaps you guys don’t know how much I love Kanye. It’s completely out of my control.

I was proud of my emotionally unstable idol for doing the Jay Leno show last night. He manned up and apologized and he didn’t go running away after making an ass of himself. I support that. I too am prone to saying things I shouldn’t. Not on TV, of course, but sometimes things just seem to burst out of my mouth. I don’t think it’s not the right thing to say until after I say it. On Jay he talked about the moment he realized what he did was wrong. When he saw Taylor Swift’s face and she didn’t keep going on. Oh the face. I know that face. When you say something and you get that look and you realize what an idiot you are.

My Mom and I had a chat about him this morning. So I guess we’re both Kanye supporters. SO WHY DON’T YOU JUST LET US AND KANYE BE GREAT!?!?!?!

me: He was near tears on Jay Leno last night.

mom: IT IS ON THE INTERNET. THE INTERVIEW

me: I'm sure it is. Ill find it.

mom: WHO KNEW HE WOULD REACT LIKE THAT TO THE QUESTION. I THINK IT SURPRISED JAY

me: Jay asked what his mom would think of his behavior. (She died you know.) Then he couldn't even talk.

mom: YES I WATCHED IT ON THE INTERNET AND JAY SAID HE HAD HAD THE PLEASURE OF MEETING HIS MOTHER

me: i just love kanye. like dink-e, he can do no wrong, even when he does.

mom: HE DOES HAVE A BAD HAIR CUT

me: well yes

mom: THATS OK THOUGH HE CAN PULL IT OFF
DID YOU WANT TO SEE THE NEW MOON NEW TRAILER? I HAVE THAT CONECTION

Sometimes I think he just needs a hug and a bowl of Lucky Charms or something. I love his meltdowns in all caps just like my Mom. (Though my Mom is not having meltdowns. Again, the program she works in requires all caps. ON HER MACBOOK AIR!)

Good! I'm clearly the source for all things Hollywood.

Kanye is a nut. When the Katrina hit, and he spouted that comment about the Prez hating black people, I applauded him because seriously, that's how the situation looked. If there were thousands of white folks climbing out their roofs, I'm convinced the situation would have been handled differently.

About the whole VMA thing, I think he didn't give that one the 10 seconds worth of thought that he should have. WHO takes the mic from anyone who has won an award? It doesn't matter who it was, that's just a retarded move. Sorry, Kanye. No pitty from me for non-thinkers. I do, however, still like your music.

No. I don't think what he DID deserves pity. BUT he apologized and Taylor Swift accepted that apology.
He went on Jay Leno and let the world know that he knows what he did was stupid. I don't think Kanye deserves "pity" I do think that we all can move on from this now, since they have.

I do UNDERSTAND the non-thinkers, AS I AM a non-thinker. I don't think people should pity me, I don't think Kanye thinks anyone should either.

Also, I think this will do nothing but HELP her career. Kanye has done this repeatedly and they have to know he's going to act crazy (came in with a bottle of Hennesey) and they keep letting him inside. They want his drama for publicity.

One of the Beastie Boys did the same thing when an REM video won over Sabotage. ODB did it. And yeah Kanye continues to do this. This time he did it to a 19 year old blonde girl who didn't deserve it. So he's sorry.

FUCK. Long comment.

Whoa, sister. I wasn't calling you a non-thinker.

I was saying that if Kanye had given his actions even 10 seconds of thought, he might have realized before it was too late that what he was about to do was stupid. I don't know how often I've said to my other half "Did you think about that first?" when he says something retarded/hurtful/obnoxious that affects another person negatively. Kanye just decided to do whatever.. maybe because of the alcohol, maybe because he's a jerk. I don't know.

And about Taylor Swift.. it doesn't matter who was accepting the award. To have done something substantial enough to win a VMA, and then have someone rip the moment away is totally uncalled for. I know the VMA people want drama for ratings, but unfortunetly they got it at the expense of innocent little Taylor Swift, which annoys the hell out of me.

I'm sorry to get you all riled up about this. I was just voicing my opinion.

Sorry to get riled up. As you can see from the post the whole thing riles me up. Of course you can voice your opinion.

It is stupid! I am in total agreement with it being stupid! I think it's a dick move whoever does it. I was just saying it's happened before. People are acting like it's never happened.

I know you didn't call me a non-thinker. I called myself one in the post.

Dear WWKD--
should I make pizza tonight? Maybe an extra one to warm up for dinner tomorrow???
And what do you think the Yanks will do in the playoffs? Will they cruise into the world series or struggle against the Red Sox?????
