Kanye West Shoots Some Hoops

Kanye West Shoots Some Hoops

Kanye West is spotted leaving a recreation center in Los Angeles after playing basketball with his friends on Tuesday (September 15).

The 32-year-old rapper blogged on Monday: “I feel like Ben Stiller in “Meet the Parents” when he messed up everything and Robert De Niro asked him to leave… That was Taylor‘s moment and I had no right in any way to take it from her. I am truly sorry.”

The first night of The Jay Leno Show was watched by an estimated 17.7 million people. Kanye was interviewed by Leno, where he made an emotional apology to Taylor Swift.

    here we go…ready, set, go: the tweens united for taylor, the panthers united for kanye, the kkk lovers, the black militants, all of them will come out on this thread. at the end of 150 posts – oh i give it 10 posts – they will all cry in unison how terrible the world has become because of the mtv awards debacle. my, even the president will hold a special news conference to assure us this will never happen again. and by post #25, someone will use a derogatory racial slur – actually make that #3. than all the little tweens will cry and get real scared and close their door tight so kanye does not come into their home and take their “awards”. then the kany fans will go and march and scream foul cause the tweens are boycotting outside their house. it will be mayhem. america will be in the middle of a civil war. kanye took taylor’s award from her and taylor is not sure if an apology is enough and kanye is not sure if beyonce should have honored taylor and beyonce is not sure…well of anything. and the world will come to an end. a complete end. ok, back to the beginning..red set go!

  • amy

    I think he couldn’t care less about taylor winning an award beyonce deserved….he totally did it to get attention, and to have all the media talking about him, and well almost everyone talking about HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!
    AND HE SUCCEEDED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    For some people bad press is better than nothing..

  • sozsayskanye

    Yeezy was right though – her video sucked – boring,anodyne,saccharine sweet,generic nonsense with little artistic content. Total bollocks !

    @here we go
    lol

  • ha

    mericans don’t like it when people get excited (think tom cruise/ oprah’s couch) or too famous. that’s why your real stars move away from the country. the world had no idea who this tone deaf taylor was until this weekend so she should be thanking west for the publicity. what he did wasn’t so bad that everyone should throw him under the bus… whatever. when taylor sings it’s like someone’s scratching my eardrums with their nails.

    and ya notice anyone in jay-z’s circle has been getting a whole lot of bad press lately. rihanna, chris, now kanye… dude is bad muti.

  • weirdo

    piece of cr*p getting his new attention. pathetic

  • Myriam

    much ado about nothing ! he apologizes so it’s finish ! ok what he did to taylor wasn’t very polite but it wasn’t nasty too ! after all showbusniness is a big family !

  • lalalove

    Give the man a f**king break, kids! He didn’t kill anyone. He was terribly wrong and he admitted it!

  • *** JAMIE ***

    THEY MAKE HIM SOUND LIKE HE KILLED TAYLOR.

    WHAT HE DID WAS STUPID, BUT IT DOESN’T DESERVE THIS MUCH RIDICULE!

  • wed mother

    Stop paying attention to this egomaniac !!! He doesn’t deserve it, and it’s the only way to get through to him… boycott everything everything to do with this jackass.

  • na

    atleast he is having fun :)

  • Mousse

    Sorry always comes too late in rude situations, isn’t it.
    At least he didn’t forget he had some very wrong behavior.

    Those men should learn a bit more impuls control, urgently.

  • Jill

    Oh God, Kanye, just disappear. Please. Just get permanently lost.

  • babe_luv_ya

    Damn! You guys suck ! What’s the big deal.Let him be!

    JustJared is just looking for hits, stirring up racist comments now. Stirring the pot. The crap is over, done. Leave it alone.
    If Taylor Swift is happy and she also got some extra POSITIVE attention too from this, leave it alone now.
    Jared stirs up sh!t constantly.

  • Pandora

    Look, let’s face it — the guy is precariously perched on the edge of insanity. Either that, or he’s an attention hoe plain and simple. Add to this the fact that he is beyond socially inept. He was apologizing all over the place, in any public forum and every medium he could avail himself to — all *but* for directly to Taylor. So, yeah, his sentiments seemed really hollow and then it became all. About. Him.

    I felt sorry for Taylor. He stole her special moment. Then he drew Beyonce into the mire and she was left carrying the bag.

    Taylor will have more moments. Kanye? He’s just about exhausted his, hasn’t he?

    OH, BTW — I think Taylor’s a sweet person, but don’t like country music. Don’t like Kanye or his music. But when it comes down to it people, this has naught to do w/ black and white. It’s not a color issue. It’s a people thing. Lose the racist crap. It’s so old.

  • babe_luv_ya

    @Pandora:
    ‘He stole her special moment’
    GET OVER IT,people… It’s funny how before the ‘incident’, no one cared about Taylor but now everybody is trashing on Kanye…lmao i’m not even a fan of his but GET OVER IT!

  • cosi

    OK, this is ridiculous. He effed up, correct -prima donna behavior, stole the spotlight from its rightful owner that moment. That said… it’s not like he killed a baby, throttled a puppy, or heiled Hitler up there! It’s a freakin’ award. It’s an annual thing. Awards can be a dime a dozen in the entertainment industry. Swift has no less of a charmed life now than before. Kanye, MOVE ON – enough being sorry for this already.

  • kj

    @babe_luv_ya: This girl went platinum with her lastest album. That is way more sales then most pop artist at that event. Don’t give me that sh** that no one cared about Taylor before this sorry excuse for an human being took her spotlight. She has one he** of a following. don’t belittle her because you worship that piece of crap known as Kayne West.

    And the only reason Kayne is more well known then her is because he makes a jack*** out of himself wherever he goes. Sadly its not because of talent and the lack thereof.

  • annab

    He is such an arrogant person. Seems to have some kind of chip on his shoulder and takes it out on others. Needs mental help.

  • just sayin

    I think most people said WTF when Taylor won but Kanye said WTF in front of millions lol. He shouldn’t have done it, but he gave publicity to Taylor, Beyonce looked crazed when he was up there. I never saw her looking so fuglie lol.

  • robgirl

    Kanye proves once again that money can’t buy class!!!!! What ever you are prior to having money is what you are afterwards. You can’t spit shine a turd. You can put powder on it and dress it up but it is still a turd.

  • HA!

    Strangely, for someone who claims to be a man, he turns these situations into “poor me”? He feels like Ben Stiler’s character in Meet the Parents? Ah, Ben Stiller’s character was trying to do the right thing. Which is completely different than getting drunk on the red carpet, proving that you don’t have to be from the ghetto to be ghetto and ruining an exciting moment for a teenage girl for absolutely no reason besides the fact that you think everyone should hear what YOU have to say. He’s such a little boy. Shut up Kanye.

  • ANON

    I think these awards shows need to do a better job with security. Why was he even backstage? How did he get to walk on stage in the middle of someone else’s thing? And he was drunk. He was drinking on the red carpet and he was drunk. Kanye needs to go to rehab and counseling. He has a lot of “issues.” But I am really sick and tired of his “apology tour.” I deliberately didn’t watch Leno because it was obvious what he would say. He is still getting coverage for acting like a JACKASS. Yes. I am sick of Kanye. He needs to do himself and us a favor and totally disappear. Get help. Maybe in about a year someone will get curious about him again.

  • lyla

    people are making such a big deal about this, god, they made a man cry.
    kanye is not a bad person, he just makes bad choices somtimes
    like going on stage in front of millions and stealing the moment from taylor swift :P
    but dude he apologised 4! times.
    it’s enough, im sure he wont do it again.
    plus he was a little tipsy, he souldn’t have been, but he was.
    at least he mad eher more famous, cause people in europe dont really know her that well, only a few
    she’ll survive :P hahahah people are so overreacting.

  • Excuse me?

    lyla @ 09/16/2009 at 11:21 am people are making such a big deal about this,…kanye is not a bad person, he just makes bad choices somtimes…but dude he apologised 4! times. it’s enough, im sure he wont do it again.

    *********************************************

    You’re sure he won’t do it agian? Well, you’re either young and impressionable, or incredibly stupid.

    Here’s Kanye APOLOGIZING for his last MTV meltdown two years ago. It’s when he acted like a spoiled brat when he didn’t win some award . Keep in mind, this is from 2007, TWO years ago:

    “I’m embarrassed by some of the things I say. It’s one thing to be confident, it’s another thing to just be completely a spoiled brat. I was really spoiled because my first album got the most nominations ever, I was performing at the Grammys out of the blue… As soon as I hit the game, I hit the ground running; I had respect, I had accolades, I had record sales. It’s time for the honesty to cut through and to grow up and be a man.”

  • HA!

    @lyla:
    Could you miss the point any more? “they made a man cry”?!?! Humility would do this man worlds of wonder. I don’t feel bad because he cried and the line about him doing this because he was in pain is a crock of sh*t. He did it because he was drunk and he’s an arrogant, self-important SOB, PERIOD. He was before his mother died and he still is. It’s disgusting that he would blame his behavior on her death. He SHOULD be ashamed of himself for at least a couple of days. Believe me, this little boy is not losing any sleep over it.

  • HA!

    @lyla:
    And, little girl, the only apology that would be worth noting would be the one that he made to Taylor Swift. Which, by the way, still hasn’t happened. A real man who actually takes responsibility for his own actions and doesn’t have to come up with excuses for being a total jack*ss – time and time again – would have gone to her personally and apologized by now. Apparently he isn’t that man.

  • Lucas

    @amy: i would have to agree. it was more about attention than anything else. I also have to wonder if he would be so apologetic if not for her mother’s reaction behind stage, Obama’s comment etc.
    if he really was sincere why not admit what we all know, he came drunk and still drinking (the proof was in his hand), he acted like a jerk and he has a problem. fame and alcohol have gone to his head and he sees that and is going to take a few steps back, go into a program for the drinking and use the time to re-evaluate the attitude he puts out into the world.
    maybe then not so many folks would be saying that his blogs etc aren’t totally sincere, especially if he follows through on the words

  • T
  • T

    It is seriously time to get over this mess. Kanye apologized to Taylor, she accepted. Move on!

  • Ha!

    @T: @T:

    Sorry, but at last count he had not apologized to Taylor. She said he hadn’t contacted her. Unless I missed something. And crying for some bullsh*t reason on Jay Leno (which is the equivalent of “I’m only sorry because I got caught”) isn’t the same thing as calling her or going to her personally and saying “I acted like a jerk and I am truly sorry. Please forgive me for being completely out of line.”

  • mickey

    As long as he is not shooting off his mouth, that’s an improvement.

  • me

    I’m so over it now. You can tell he’s really SINCERE in his apology. People do a lot of crazy things when they’re under the influence. Even Kanye wouldn’t do something that crazy under normal circumstances, so I believe him. He’s now apologized 10 times (in his blog, on tv, to her mom, to Taylor, and to the press) and phrased it in different ways (so we know it’s not something his publicist is making him do)….and TAYLOR has accepted him. End of story! I hope he has fun on his tour with Lady Gaga!

  • me

    @HA!:

    HE DID APOLOGIZE TO TAYLOR OVER THE PHONE!!! It just said that on another Just Jared post.

  • Liza

    You people who keep writing over and over that Taylor needs attention need a clue. She has sold 10 million albums in 2 years. Yes folks, more than Kanye. He is an attention hungry a$$hole, who I wish would disappear.

  • http://cutiepie@yahoo.com cutie pie

    Wahtever,, he apologized like the white folks do when they say racist things about blacks, and KW didnt even call her a name!! And Jay Leno was wrong to bring up KW’s mother, the woman is deceased and it is not right to bring up the dead, ‘What would your mother say”" like Kanye is a kid.. white folks kill me with their crap.. get over it and move on this chick is reaping all the benefits from this and in my group they never heard of her , so she has some fame now as the girl KW dissed on tv!! whatever.. moving along to the world news!!!

  • http://cutiepie@yahoo.com cutie pie

    you white people kill me, its ok for white racist idiots to say all kinds of racist low down name calling n word and monkeys and welfare, watermelon , fried chicken crap comments about blacks and apologize and think its all . oh freedom of speech, well kanye has the same right, true he was wrong for snatching the mike bur saying Veyonce should have won was not like the racist name calling your bill )’reillys and don imus ‘s and all your racist white folks who use the n word.. get over it and move on and she is reraping the bebefits from it.. GO KANYE .. you are still the greatest and one of the best rappers/performers in the world!! CHI_TOWN STAND UP!!

  • HA!

    @me:

    I just searched the first four pages of this site and apparently I’m blind because nowhere is there a story about him calling her personally. As a matter of fact, this is the only other story in those pages about it:

    http://justjared.buzznet.com/2009/09/15/taylor-swift-no-kanye-west-apology-yet/

    WTF are you talking about?
    @cutie pie:

  • jenny

    it’s over, i like Taylor she is a sweet girl, i felt sorry for her, but she got her moment and more publicity, she will be fine, kanye was wrong, but he corrected himself, i have more sympathy, respect for him now than before, his humbleness got to me. love you kanye, you will be fine, Taylor forgave him and felt his sincerity and so did others, how he handled the after math made a new fan outta of me, the crazies are the ones who is still acting like he murdered someone.

  • sarah

    Ofcourse Taylor wil be fine. Nothing really happened to her except her “moment” was taken away. She’ll have plenty more im sure, especially after all the extra attention this has gotten her. Celebrities are in a whole different world, they do what they do for the money and the fame. I dont want to waste my time getting all emotional about petty things that happen to them or between them.
