Kanye West recently filmed an episode for VH1’s Storytellers. Seeing as how this is a show that features more talking than performing, you can understand why Kanye might have been a bad choice:

Kanye West weighed in on the alleged altercation between Chris Brown and Rihanna during a February 13 taping of VH1’s “Storytellers,” although his comments will not appear in the show.

According to a Reuters report, at one point during the taping West asked the crowd, “Can’t we give Chris a break? … I know I make mistakes in life.” Brown, who was arrested during the Grammys and booked on suspicion of making criminal threats, a felony, has not been charged in the case.
West also reportedly received loud applause when he followed by saying, “Michael Jackson, amazing. Michael Phelps, amazing … He’s a real f—in’ person; he makes mistakes.” West also made a rather puzzling comment about O.J. Simpson, saying, “O.J. Simpson, amazing. Is he not? What he did, when he did, what he did. Was he not amazing, though?”

What’s funniest about all of this, is that none of it is surprising in the least. When you give Kanye West a microphone, you’d better hope he just uses it for (auto-tuned) singing or rapping because God only knows what will come out of his mouth otherwise. Defending Phelps is one thing, all he did was smoke pot. But defending the guy who beat the hell out of his girlfriend and then the guy that MURDERED his ex-wife? Its not even like O.J.’s been in the news lately or anything. Oh, Kanye, what an enigma you are.
