Kanye West won another prestigious award recently. In an online Thankgsiving reader’s poll on AOL, West was voted biggest “turkey” of 2009. The five-day survey wrapped on Monday with 42 percent of nearly 75,000 voters honoring West with the holiday title.
Kanye beat out four less famous fowl-ups for the dubious distinction, including Jon Gosselin (29 percent), Levi Johnston (16 percent), Spencer Pratt (10 percent) and Michael Lohan (3 percent).
The apparent reason for Kanye’s award, Taylor Swift, was also in the running for an award. Swift received 2nd place in the “Who would you like to invite to Thanksgiving dinner?” poll, losing to George Clooney. The Oscar-winning hunk nabbed 39 percent of the votes, with Swift getting 32 percent.
Americans who voted were torn between whose Thanksgiving celebration they’d like to attend. 34 percent chose the Jackson family, 31 percent picked Tom, Katie and Suri Cruise and 17 percent chose the Gosselins (although I doubt they dined together).
Socialite Kim Kardashian was the celeb most wanted to shop with on Black Friday. She received 30 percent of votes in that category, with Victoria Beckham trailing with 26 percent.
I didn’t vote, but I think Jon Gosselin is a way bigger Turkey than Kanye will ever be…. and as for shopping with Kim, only if she sharing her credit limit. I can do bad all by myself…
The photo above has a special place in my heart cause these kids already recognize the importance of reppin the “A” to the fullest. In addition to Jay Jenkins front & center. Boo in my head, Young Jeezy spent this Thanksgiving holiday spreading cheer to the kiddies via his Street Dreamz Foundation. Street Dreamz is Young Jeezy’s Non-Profit organization, which was formed to encourage kids to follow their Dreamz (with a z).
On Wednesday night Jay Jenkins went door to door passing out boxes of turkeys and all the fixings to several families in need and on Thanksgiving night, he picked up the kids and took them to the Atlanta Hawks Basketball Game. Jeezy treated them all to a night of fun as his foundation footed the bill for all those expensive snacks at philips arena and he even stayed with them to watch the game.
According to my sources, Jeezy made sure all the kids were treated top notch during the game. When asked what he’s thankful for this year, Jeezy stated:
I am thankful to be able to stay a part of our youth today and the direction that they may choose to pursue. To me, the success behind being Young Jeezy, behind the fame is being able to take time out and help the less fortunate when I am able to.
