Kelly Clarkson: Kanye West is a Sad Human Being

Kelly Clarkson: Kanye West is a Sad Human Being

Taylor Swift fans, including celebrities, are speaking out against Kanye West for ruining Taylor‘s big win at the 2009 MTV VMAs for “Best Female Video”.

American Idol‘s original champ Kelly Clarkson just posted this rant on her blog slamming Kanye for his on-stage behavior:

“Dear Kanye, 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—. I mean, I’ve seen you do some pretty s—ty things, but you just keep amazing me with your tactless, asshole ways. It’s absolutely fascinating how much I don’t like you. I like everyone. I even like my asshole 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??

“I was actually nominated in the same category that Taylor won and I was excited for her…so why can’t you be?? I’m not even mad at you for being an asshole…I just pity you because you’re a sad human being.

“On a side note, Beyonce has always been a class act and proved again tonight that she still is. Go TEXAS!!

Taylor Swift, you outsell him ….that’s why he’s bitter. You know I love your work! Keep it up girl! KC :)”

Preach it, sista!!!

    Love that celebs are telling Kanye like it is. That was such a bitter move and extremely childish. The look on Taylor’s face told everything. Beyonce left me speechless, she’s a true class act.

  • Me

    Respect Kelly. She’s absolutely right.

  • stacie stewie

    You know, Kelly Clarkson…you are awesome.

  • sofia

    I love this girl! Kanye west is an asshole and a racist person if u guys didnt know. Anyway kelly clarkson you go girl.

  • tweety

    Kanye still gets Douche Bag of the century. I really wish someone would spit in his face or something.

  • Anna

    okay this is getting really ridiculous. yes, what kanye did was wrong, but my goodness everyone is acting like he beat her or something. people are actually making death threats against him. no, no one deserves that kind of public humiliation and i’m sure she’s a sweet kid, but this is getting scary. let it go.

  • Rayt

    well said Kelly.
    Kanye is a fucking moron

  • Anna

    actually, wtf? scratch that. she’s not a kid, she’s 20 years old. she should be fighting her own battles.

  • stacie stewie

    First of all…Beyonce is from TEXAS.

    That is why she is saying yay to TEXAS.

    Second, Taylor is 19. Still a TEEN.

  • Kel

    Kanye West should NOT even be SHOW BUSINESS… he is obviously a miserable, sad human being!
    #10 IF YOU think Kanye rocks, I feel sorry for your spouse!

  • Kel

    Sorry, that’s #7 COMMENT!

  • nicole

    can anyone provide a link for this? i haven’t seen the VMAs and based on what i’ve read so far, i’m starting to dislike Kanye

  • pam

    Kelly, you’re my idol and always have been. now i truly know why. i love Kanye’s music and always will, but man, he is such a schmuck!

    Team Kelly/Taylor ftw!

  • CA

    @Anna: Hey, it was Taylor’s big moment up there, her time, and it was interrupted by ‘Ye.

    It was totally wrong and unprofessional, I guess it results with the Hen he was drinking earlier.

    What if you were Taylor? Ask yourself.

    Much love to Kelly Clarkson & Taylor Swift

  • Kayne is stoo-pid

    Kelly is taking up for her fellowTexan,Beyonce.
    Kelly is in CountryMusic(her duet with Reba)and soshe appreciates and likesTaylor.

    Go Kelly,Taylor and Beyonce.

    Go torehab Kayne.

    GoJay-Z and get Kayne.It ain’t going to be pretty.

  • pam

    ^really? you suck.

  • me

    Lmao! Kanye won’t be doing a collaboration with Kelly Clarkson anytime soon…or any celebrity for that matter. I think it’s funny now, but it was still wrong.

  • ugh

    anyone who supports kanye is probably as sad and useless as him. go kelly. you tell him.

  • kanye is STUPID

    kanye is so stupid that he asked for the numbers for 911

  • marcco


    Kanye has once again proved he is a moron with no class…his music is so so and Taylor Swift is a young and rising star….He is jelous We all no it..Hey Anna I would love to get on stage and humilate you…:)

  • err.

    i dont understand why kanye still has fans. and fyi, kelly isn’t being a racist, she’s just being honest. and if y’all have a problem with that then you just go ahead and worship this douchebag and be a loser like him forever.

  • jk

    kanye’s fans are stupid. wait, wasn’t kanye’s mom fat too?

  • RC

    It just go’s to show, you can take the BOY out of the Ghetto,
    BUT you can’t take the Ghetto out of the the BOY,
    Kanye West is just low life trash, take another hit off your crack pipe….

  • Rayt

    @ #35 – lol yep and she was much fatter than Kelly thats fosho. And I don’t think you need to use plural with “kanye’s fans”. There’s only one, and it’s clear they are mentally unstable.

  • Heather

    @Anna:As Kanye showed the world last night, people aren’t always stable and those who make death threats against him are more than likely the same sort who toss rocks through an umpire’s window at their home b/c of a call they made during a football game. That being said, he doesn’t deserve death threats at all; he does however, deserve to be treat like Mel Gibson and Tom Cruise from now on by both the industry and those who support it..

  • fishsticks


    has it really come to the fact just because Kelly is hating on Kanye whos a person of color, that shes racist now? really? DO U EVEN KNOW THE MEANING OF RACIST.
    Kanye is a selfish egoiiste, and will always be. he’s done this before in the mtv europe awards with the band JUSTICE. He’s just a sore looser, and everyone calling kelly a racist should deserve to get a dictionary shoved up their asses.

  • cg

    to “kelly is fat” your an a** hole. also kelly is not a fat white racist or whatever bs you called, if she was a racist would she have said what she said about beyonce or even have african american friends (tamyra gray from her season from idol for ex.) some of you people are complete douche bags. we need more people in the music like Kelly, Beyonce’ in the business unlike Kayne who’s an egotistical douch bag who thinks his shit doesn’t stink.

  • fishsticks

    oh wow. somebody’s a kanye fan. listen buddy, youre not gna change anything by saying these insults, taylor won, kanye made a fool out of himself (and so are you).

  • meowtime

    I love kelly Clarkson even more now! I always buy her albums, now I just might buy them again, and even though Im not a huge taylor swift fan I will start buying hers too…and I already have every beyonce album twice over…

    Beyonce is so classy and gracious, she let taylor have her moment, and taylor was so sweet and nice. wtg all three of you…

    I hope Kanye falls off a cliff and takes his ugly alien clown girlfriend with him.

  • fishsticks

    phuleez, i agree.. but dont be a hypocrit… taylor swift is as overrated as Kanye west.

  • Anna

    @CA: wtf? I’m not defending him! notice how i even said “no one deserves that kind of public humiliation”. truth be told, I don’t like either of them. I feel bad for Taylor, but this situation is getting out of control. Kanye, while he is an asshole for doing this, should not be getting threatened over something this stupid. Taylor isn’t a child. this is the point i’m trying to make.

  • Anna

    @marcco: I don’t know why you (and others) are attacking me. I said nothing against Taylor. Only that this situation is getting out of control and that she is an adult who needs to start fighting her own battles. I never said anything about her deserving to be humiliated, in fact, I said the opposite. Why would you love to “get on stage and humiliate me”? What did I do to warrant such a hostile response from you? *sigh* This is what idolatry does to people.

  • crazy legs



  • Nicole

    Beyonce showed class. Taylor showed class. What did Kayne show…his ass. Kelly is right. I appreciate another star calling him out. It’s way overdue.

  • mary


  • sarah

    kanye is a douche and will always be…he’s just a sad lil man… while beyonce is a true calssy woman… and for all I know, taylor IS a TEEN!! she’s 19!!! how sad it is to steal a teen’s spotlight? kanye is a tacky attention wh**e and will always be one


  • mary


  • The Maven

    Go Kelly, tell him why you are mad, keep rocking Taylor………
    Well done to Beyonce……

    Right on Kells. For those of you crying racism, just stop. This has nothing to do with race. Most people (of all races) are condemning Kanye’s actions. It was unheard of, what he did. Everyone is fed up with him because he whines every year about not getting a moon man or a grammy. Now he has to poke is cry baby self into other categories.

    The VMAs are decided by the fans! So really, Kanye was disrespecting the fans. Why does he care who wins what at the VMAs. Beyonce won video of the year which she deserved, end of story.

    Also, please stop about with the cuts at female celebrities weight, it’s distasteful. Jack Black is fat and no one says anything. Kelly packs on a few extra pounds, and she’s a cow? She’s won grammys and moon men. She is one of the best selling artisit in the world so don’t worry about her weight. There’s a double standard in the industry, and it’d be nice if we as a society could get back to paying attention to the music rather than women’s weight.

  • poon

    WAY TO GO KELLY! Kanye will get what he deserves (I pray)

  • miapocca

    If I were a celeb I will totally to add to this rant of Kanye..because we all know that hollywierdo always have their turn, do if you can shut up for once and just let the public make the waves, when it comes to your turn , the public might be kinder… Katherine Hiegl!

  • bella

    @ck_always: agreee

  • KANYE is an a$$!

    He will get his and so will those who are MEAN

  • miapocca

    Isnt this the same girl who tried to humiliate one of the Jonas brother,…well they say Karma is a bitch but that was a quick pay back since Jolie is still waiting on hers!! ahahahhah

    Kanye is CRAZY but RIGHT…I did not even notice her video , so I was shocked when her name was called…Gaga and Beyonce’s video were the only ones that made an impression when they showed the clips.///
    Kanye could have used his blog to express himself, but he is giving me some original laughs!!!!

  • meems

    Kanye just needs to shut up and start his own award show, because he clearly thinks he is the final deciding factor in choosing a winner.

  • #teamtaylor

    this was when he didn’t win an europe music award

  • jayvee

    Props to Kelly Clarkson for calling Kanye out. Lots of his peers were heated – as Twitter blew up with rants from Pink, Joel Madden, Katy Perry and beyond. He is a sad sad human.
