    every other pic…hahahaha.

  2. Ron says:

    Why does anybody listen to anything that douchebag has to say or any music he puts out. I don’t get him at all. If I wanted to listen to a whiny petulant child, I’d have one of my own.

  3. Riley says:

    “I such an asshole” should be the title of Conway West’s next album.

  4. Dexter01 says:

    gee…cancelling on the Today show..what a surprise,…such a whiny cry baby

  5. gg says:

    Kanye, LITTLE DO YOU REALIZE, the assery continues to get deeper and smellier everytime you tweet. STOP. NOW. I thought you quit twitter?

    Obama thinks you’re an even bigger Jackass now.

    Money can’t buy you class, but it obviously can buy you delusion

  6. Yolanda H says:

    I’m so sick of the “I hate Kanye”, BS! Some of the post I read online are very racist, and it’s so very sad. People call this guy all kinds of names, and for what? The Taylor Swift thing? He’s too arrogant? I can’t believe how self righteous some people are! The guy has apologized, and tried to fix his image, but people still hate him. I can
    t figure it out. Charlie Sheen is beating women, doing coke, using racist slurs & destroying hotel rooms, & yet he’s forgiven. I don’t get this, and it pisses me off! Kanye makes great music. He’s not perfect, and no one else is either. This needs to stop!

  7. Debbi says:

    I just watched the Kanye interview with Matt Lauer on YouTube, and I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but I felt bad for the guy.
    Kanye was actually trying to be apologetic, but Lauer was messing with him and played the Taylor Swift footage – wtih audio – while Kanye was trying to answer a question Lauer had just posed about Bush. It wasn’t cool.

  8. gg says:

    Yolanda, because read his twitter. He’s an idiot. P.S. People can’t stand Sheen either and it has zippo to do with racism. Stop the racism crap please. Nobody does that here. It’s far more damaging than the Kanye hate.

  9. Obvious says:

    @Yolanda H.

    We’re hating on Kanye for EVERYTHING. He’s trying to make amends for one thing right now. We can till call him out for all the crap we feel like.

    Charlie Sheen is being called out by most people on the boards. And i who can’t help but liking Charlie Sheen (i honestly don’t know why) feel he is way out of line.

    I’ve disliked him since he declared himself the voice of this generation. I don’t want him to be my voice. Our main problem with him is he is an egomaniac. I’m giving him props for attempting to make amends-but it doesn’t mean we have to like him.

    @gg, thank you. I’m sick of people automatically saying everyhting is racist because we don’t like the guy.

    I think i pointed out yesterday that Kanye is the black John Mayer and Mel Gibson is the white Chris Brown-we hate them all for their actions on their race!!!!!!

    Watch out people, I must be racist!

  10. gg says:

    If he had even an ounce of maturity or class, he would not have canceled the Today performance. Big Fcuking Baby.

  11. Obvious says:

    @gg, and this is why you and i are “racists” because we dare to call him out on his douchery.

  12. alex says:

    Kanye is an idiot and the Today Show is better off not having him on the show. He is a douchebag. I cant stand the guy.

    Race have nothing to do with calling him out of his bullsh*t.

  13. alex says:

    Yolanda,just because we don’t like Kanye and call him out of his bullsh*ts don’t mean we are racists. I am a black woman who can’t stand West. I think he is a douchebag and an idiot

  14. gg says:

    The childishness transcends any skin color. Even Charlie Sheen, money-blowing watch wasting, cokehead hooker client, doesn’t rage tweet. Rage tweeting is the death of your image, what is so hard to understand about that? 🙄

  15. OXA says:

    Yolanda are u related to kanye and is this why u r calling us racist when we dislike the idiot? Would it be fair for me to call u names for defending his stupid ass for repeatedly making a fool of himself?

  16. Samigirl says:

    Omigoodness! That gawker video is INSANE! That woman deserves to go to jail! In Louisiana, using language like that is considered a hate crime, and you can get arrested for it!

  17. Truthzbetta says:

    @ Yolanda

    How come Obama said he was an idiot for the Taylor Swift incident? He’s got two Presidents from opposite parties who think he’s appalling so explain that one and find a new excuse.

    You need a lot better cause to go around calling everybody who writes they dare not like Kanye racist because that reflects on you and your name calling, not them. And you can’t get people to stop calling him out on his doucheyness, you’re not the boss of we.

    That said. Again with the rage tweets Conway? *Pulls up Chair* This is getting hilarious.

  18. glowkey says:

    @gg and Obvious…ummm, did you even *read* Yolanda’s post? She wrote SOME of the stuff she reads ONLINE is racist, nothing about what has been posted specifically on this site. And yes, I have seen some of these comments myself, so stop with the idiocy of being ready to cry foul against those you deem so quick to assume racism where none exists (and who the hell are either of you to say it doesn’t?). There is simply nothing else that can be defended on posts that are composed of nothing more than racial slurs (tell me again, oh wise and mighty ones…how is that not racist?) or call him a racist for stating that the only reason he “attacked” Taylor Swift is because she’s white. Sheesh, get off your high horse and stop being so presumptuous as to figure the true intent behind someone else’s words and actions couldn’t have possibly been rooted in racism just ’cause you said so. You sound as bad as people who insist “But, but racism doesn’t exist anymore! Not in this day and age!”

  19. Chris says:

    Maybe Kanye’s diamond teeth are giving him trouble.

  20. teehee says:

    To me that interview was as typical as it gets– meaning that they love to re-play and re-hash old dramas and old topics that are already extinct. They ask abotu old boyfriends, old problems,– they basically haunt celebrities with really old issues and Kanye happens to have one old issue being the awards debacle.
    If he had learned anythign or matured in any way since then, he would be able to view it all objectively and offer some intelligent remarks after the fact. But he is apparently still just as impulsively reactive and ego driven as ever.
    Noboyd “set him up”. Its up to him to control his own emotions and behavior and no one else is to blame if he cant do that- especially when they bahve in a predicatble way ie an interviewer wants to ask about hot topics relevant to him. This reminds me of common sociopathic behavior where they always blame the other person for their own irresponsible acting…

  21. Anti-icon says:

    See Kanye is a sensitive artist/musician who needs a beautiful and strong wife, to help him in his career. NOT AMBER ROSE.

    Look how Heidi Klum and Seal fit together perfectly. In their careers and home, and managing image and their respective arts: fashion and music.

    Kanye needs the female equivalent of a Heidi Klum. Who can we fix him up with?

  22. Anti-icon says:

    As for Kanye cancelling. Right move. As for Kanye Tweeting. Dumb/Stupid/Insensitive/Egomanical move.

    Kanye. All’s well in the world now. You stomped down some pretty obvious manipulative journalism at the Today show, and I salute you.

    Now be quiet and make your art. And take some time to make it, like, Tupac style poetry. You are a poet. Twitter is beneath you. (And so is the Today Show…..for now.)

  23. Cleo says:

    They look alike.

  24. Jaye E says:

    @glowkey, you said everything I was poised to post perfectly. I think people see the word “racist” (or any derivative of that word) and the knee-jerk reaction is to rail against it. Yolanda wasn’t saying that YOU gg, obvious and the rest were racist, she was saying that she’s seen some particularly nasty, racist posts on other areas of the internet. I have too. Douchebaggery is colorblind and I would agree that Kanye sets himself up for ridicule because he’s ALWAYS tweeting, but I’m willing to believe there’s more going on there than him just being a douche.

  25. Gigohead says:

    Glad that the time has come: someone took Kanye to task for his chronic “offending” ways. His ego, his narcissistic tweeting, his self-absorbed personality is what Lauer had to take to task. Did you see how he yelled at the production crew! This guy is a PROFESSIONAL entertainer who has sound checks in his ear all the time!! He reacted like a MORON!

    Kanye can repair his image by NOT TWEETING!! Silence is golden friend!

  26. irishserra says:

    Yolanda, who says Sheen has been continually forgiven? He is as disgusting as any other celebrity ass, and it has been acknowledged.

    Kanye’s music is garbage, his attitude is garbage, and he has not tried to fix his image. He’s tried to skate by on shallow apologies. Apologies mean nothing if they aren’t followed up by earnest conduct.

    Grow up and find a new way to fight. Throwing the word “racist” out there is childish, especially where it’s irrelevant.

  27. Jaquebelle says:

    Kanye West’s mother should posthumously be given an award for delivering a baby w/ the world’s largest head. God rest her soul.

    A true musical genius does not have to tweet how great he is. A true musical genius does not need sophomoric publicity stunts to promote his work and then sulk like a baby w/ a wet diaper when his overweening ego is placed in the reality cycle. A true musical genius allows his music to represent this. One love.

  28. Tess says:

    Team Kanye on this one.

    Lauer’s a punk. He treated Kanye the way he usually treats conservatives…you know…throw a little hand grenade into the interview to change the subject, derail and sabotage the intention if it’s counter to Lauer’s and NBC’s overwhelmingly liberal agenda.

    In a nutshell, Lauer just wasn’t going to provide a platform for Kanye to express something somewhat positive and heartfelt about Bush.

  29. southerncheerleader says:

    I, TOO, AM A BLACK FEMALE who luv’d Heavy D, Kool Moe Dee, Kris Kross, Big Daddy Kane (whom I’ve met @ Warner Bros.) & Naughty by Nature’s catchy rap tunes. That said, Kanye West is UN-LIKEABLE on ALL levels. From his sourpuss face, disrespecting Miss Swift, Amber Rose (WTF) & I won’t even get into the Bush thing. Bush might be a lot of things, but to make a blanket statement like that. I can barely even look @ KW. AND, I don’t personally know “A N Y” BLACK WOMEN who like KW.

    Sorry Ms. Yolanda.

  31. Obvious says:

    My comment was fully directed at yolanda.

    I still stand by what I said. Read not just here but all over, if you say you do not like someone of another race you are almost automatically labeled as racist, and it pisses me off.

    I do not like Kanye and I gave perfect examples of simliar problems with other celebrities. I don’t believe I accused yolanda of calling us racist many others have if you’ve read. i called out preemptively those who would say we were racist for our point of view.

  32. gg says:

    I never thought anybody called me a racist, I just want to keep racism blaming out of this site because it’s like a virus and once you let the door open a crack, all the roaches come out and start up. I don’t even read comments from other sites because they’re usually pretty moronic.

    I appreciate the 99% of people who are fair minded and open on this site and I’d just like to keep it that way.

    And don’t start the damn high horse crap. We’re all just stating our opinions. Don’t get all snotty and do the ad hominem thing.

  33. Jaquebelle says:

    As a woman of color, I have seen more than my fair share of the most vile forms of racist comments whenever there is a black celebrity news item. It does exists. Not so much here, which is why I enjoy reading comments. Sadly, the exception tends to be civility. To a large degree I understand Yolanda’s frame of reference.

    Much harder to defend Kanye West. Even by celebrity, self-entitled standards he is a douchebag. Two years from now he will be irrelevant. The shelf-life for rappers is severely limited. Hopefully his massive ego will cushion this inevitable fall lol. One love.

  34. Jayna says:

    Kanye, shut up on the whiny tweets. You’re supposed to be a tough rapper, not a momma’s boy. I agree Matt was a douche in the interview, but that’s nothing new. Other celebs handle themselves just fine without acting like an assh…..le on hational televison. 50 Cent would have shut it down with two words and carried on the interview in a charming way, and he, certainly, wouldn’t have gone on a twitter rampage.

  35. lena80 says:

    @ Yolanda..don’t worry, I understood what you were saying.

    @ Obvious, GG, OXA and whoever else …please point out to the rest of us where Yolanda said you guys were racist for not liking Kanye or anyone else for that matter…was that post deleted? Because from what I read she said she SAW people making racist remarks about Kanye on OTHER sites. He acts like a douche and instead of people sticking to that they bring HIS race into it. So while you may feel race has nothing to do with it, go to others sites and read some of the comments people are making about his race instead of simply calling him an ass etc…. She stated one thing and you guys went off in a completely different direction from what she said. Both of you basically said, in a nut shell, if we don’t like someone we are called racist…AND NO ONE HERE SAID THAT. Honestly, I think you guys owe Yolanda an apology because she didn’t or anyone else here said you were racist for not liking Kanye. So Obvious while you may stand by your statements, your statements towards Yolanda had nothing to do with what she said and that’s why myself and others are asking the “where did she that” questions. You have a valid arguments, but you may want to save your comments for when people actually say/imply that you or anyone else is a racist for not liking a person of color simply because you call them an ass or whatever.

    @ southerncheerleader, what does you being black have to do with your like or dislike of Kanye? Are you looking for a bonus points or something from non black people because you don’t like Kanye??? YOUR statement wasn’t even necessary…kinda like the one Kanye made about Bush…but at least he was reacting to what he saw at the time, which was an extremely slow response time to poor black people in need (and yes I know there were non blacks in crisis as well, but all we saw on the news majority of the time were those who were poor and black) …You along with Obvious, GG, and others did get Yolanda’s post, and if you guys did you clearly did not comprehend it. So southerncheerleader if you want to say sorry to Yolanda for anything it should be for your looking for brownie points with non black people because I don’t like Kanye West either and I am Black post. SMH at you for agreeing with others who hate when people bring race into a discussion, yet you felt the need to mention your race.

  36. gg says:

    lena, please read the first sentence of my last post? I never said I thought anybody called ME a racist, and I know it was other sites Yolanda was referring to. So do not lump me in with a bunch of other people who have their own things to say unrelated to mine, please.

    Yolanda said she just didn’t get why people hated Kayne, intimated that it must be for racist reasons, and others are simply clarifying why they can’t stand him for her, in their own words. No posts were removed.

    I am trying to avoid this thread turning into a racist discussion, yet you feel the need to bring it back in.

  37. southerncheerleader says:

    lena, lena80 –

    OK, I’ll explain it as simply as I can. People don’t like KW & it has nothing to do with his race. Do you understand that? Guess what, you can dislike people for a myriad of reasons. You’re being as simple-minded as that black woman on DC Housewives who accused a caucasian woman of being racist because she didn’t like Tyra Banks. We, as black people don’t HAVE to be loved by all. It’s NOT ALWAYS about race. Put that card back in the deck regarding KW.

    I saw his M. Lauer interview — just sad. KW wants to appear smart, but gets frustrated when his true colors are revealed. I still can’t believe the disrespect he showed towards young Taylor Swift. He never would have done that to another sis or bro & you KNOW it. Cheerio! Oh, I need a brownie point. Thanks.

  38. lena80 says:

    Okay GG…I guessed I lumped you in with Obvious and others because I did not see your post correcting Obvious for the statement she made to you earlier… “@gg, and this is why you and i are “racists” because we dare to call him out on his douchery” So I extend to you my apologies.

    But, I have to correct you…Yolanda said she doesn’t get the Kanye hate… people are calling HIM racist names on others sites and bringing HIS race into it… NOTHING in her statement said people are racist for hating Kanye…that’s why I asked was a post deleted because what what others are stating she said was NOT even stated. I honestly don’t understand what they are seeing in her comment because it’s not there. Furthermore, yourself and others made comments about racism long before I made a post, therefore please do not even attempt to instruct me about “turning” the post into a talk about racism when YOU felt the need to make your comments about it…and besides that, even if it is brought up, what’s wrong with having a healthy discussion about it anyway? You are entitled to your posts and I am entitled to mine so please fall back about me feeling a need to bring something into a post that existed well before I even commented.

    @ southerncheerleader…do you understand that people accused Yolanda falsely? She said she read on OTHER SITES people calling KANYE racist names instead of just leaving at he’s a douche, he an ass, etc… and then you jumped on the bandwagon yourself with the others that said that she said people are racist if they don’t like Kanye… WHICH NEVER WAS NEVER STATED ON THIS SITE… As far the “race card” goes I never pulled it…you however did when you felt the need to mention YOUR race which is irrelevant to your liking or disliking of Kanye…DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT? … AND then you turn right around and say that Kanye would not have done that to another black person. So who’s the one pulling the race cards!? IT’S NOT ME…So yeah run off and collect your brownie points that you seem to want so badly. Once again, I’m SMH at you for bringing YOUR race into the discussion and then stating Kanye would not do that to other black people…when he’s clearly just an ass and douche to practically everyone.

  39. gg says:

    Well I think we can all agree to the missing Yolanda that we think he’s a jerk just because he’s a jerk. That point is made – the rest are ad hominem attacks.

    Have a nice cup of tea and chill down maybe. All caps = yelling, and nothing about this douche is worth getting worked up about.

  40. lena80 says:

    Exactly GG… they were ad hominem attacks in regards to Yolanda’s statment…..that’s the point I was trying to make hence the emphasis/caps to some of my words.

  41. gg says:

    Does anybody know if he still has diamonds in his teeth?

  42. lena80 says:

    I’m sure the diamonds are still in his teeth…he most definitely will tweet about it if/when he takes them out.

  43. gg says:

    I dunno – I get the feeling he’d do it quietly, not wanting to make right all the people that said it was “not cool” after all. I looked at his mouth on the interview and couldn’t really tell – but they didn’t glint or anything so he might’ve had them taken out.

  44. Great Post. Really useful information. Ill be back for sure
