  1. During this interview I actually felt bad 4 him and the emotions he was going through….Jay Leno sure opened Kanye’s eyes with that question….But hey as an artist in the public eye u have 2 lead by example and by him saying he wants 2 help people…that’s not really the way 2 do it

  2. I am so tired of this young man. I understand that he has had a very rough time, but he needs to grow up. Why should Taylor be punished because he has mental problems. It is always sometime with Kanye. He just needs attention. He is way to needy.

  3. Kanye is hard to read in this interview. My first thought was that his apology was sincere, but given all the publicity gained from this and Kanye’s seemingly non-ending hunger for attention… I have my doubts.

  4. Kanye got exactly what he wanted….. ATTENTION!

  5. Its like this – the Judd Neslon stepped on the stuck up pedestaled Prom Queens big moment. Good.

    If Swift were really about “goodness” she would of all ready said, man, he’s taking a big hit for a mistake, thats what he did a mistake, its okay.

    To pull out Kanye’s mother on this is low and dumb.

    Mind you thats IF all this is really not just a publicity stunt. I mean, really, look at it, Jays got a new show, needs eyeballs and ratings, Kanye’s got a new album so does Swift, Beyonce’s turned her image around as “classy”. Lots of celebrities have come out grandstanding also benefiting from this attention.

    Its a con.

  6. I beleive that Kanye is sorry — he realized that he made a mistake — I don’t think that Jay Leno should have mentioned Kanye’s mother — Kanye was doing similar things when his mother was alive so nothing has really changed — Kanye was just being Kanye — I don’t think that his career should be over because of this stupid mistake — I do agree that maybe he needs to take a break and try to get his head together so he can take better control of his actions

  7. I buy it. People fuck up. He has a big personality, he doesn’t have a very good filter. Sometimes it serves him well. Other times he steps on toes. He seems like a genuine person.

  8. I find it funny that zspot will call Kanye an asshole but won’t use the word “fuck”. Anywho, by Kanye’s blatant disrespect while his mother was alive, I doubt he cares what she would have thought about what he did Sunday. I don find it funny that people say we shouldn’t judge and yet judge others for judging. :-)

  9. I think Kanye is goin through a melt down. He may need a therapist. He seems like he never grieved the lost of his mother and needs to deal with that. Even though he was doin stuff like this b4 she passed away.

    He speaks his mind and a lot of times its @ the wrong time. I feel people are blowing this way out of proportion and need to get over it and move on. There many other things more serious things to worry about than a stupid boring award show outburst. If he didn’t do that this show would have been nothin to look @. Besides Janet Jackson’s tribute..

  10. Seriously, Kanye needs to grow up and take responsibility for his actions like we all do. I am over this so lets move on with our lives.

  11. leave kanye alone ….u act like he killed somebody…i agree at what he did was wrong but come the F**k on …where was all this outrage when that asshole disrepected the President…where was the outrage when they wouldn’t let the President speak to children about there education….let it go everybody act like they never did anything wrong in they life….

  12. Jay Leno asked him the right question because I’m sure his mother would have disapproved of what he did on Sunday night. I still don’t know how sincere he was on Leno but what I said here still stands, I hope Kanye West loses his career and I hope that this will be the incident that does it for him. I’m sick of his shit and it’s time for him to grow up and go away.

  13. “Let he without sin throw the first stone”

  14. Asking him about his dead mother is totally inappropriate.
    Maybe that’s cool in the US , but no showmaster in europe would be so judgemental and self – rightious.
    Who does Leno think he is ?

  15. i think he may have been sincere, and i’m glad that Leno put the mom question on him, but he’s gotta go to meet Taylor Swift and her family in person and make amends, going on tv shows makin’ it about him is not the way to make this OK.
