This hilarious take on the Chris Brown/Rihanna domestic violence situation starts off with his spoofing Chris’s Larry King Live Interview then moves to a music video where Rihanna sings “Who’s Gonna Hunt Chris Brown” Dude got down in this spoof video!
Kanye West hit up Jay Leno and offered yet another apology for the stunt he pulled on Taylor Swift during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards (Click Here to watch). I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling a bit of Kanye overload right now. But since I’m all for the people, I thought I’d share this transcript and video of Kanye’s 3rd apology on Jay Leno. (Apology #1, Apology #2)
JAY LENO: Have a seat, my friend. First of all, let me say thank you for honoring this commitment. A lot of times, people — They kind of back out at the last minute, or they have a publicist or someone call and say, “Oh, I’m sorry, my client’s not available.” So thank you for coming and doing this, in light of all the things that have been going on.
Tell me about your day. Have you had a tough day today?
KANYE WEST: Yeah, it’s been extremely difficult. I just — just dealing with the fact that I hurt someone or took anything away, you know, from a talented artist or from anyone, because I only wanted to help people. My entire life, I’ve only wanted to give and do something that I felt was right. And I immediately knew in the situation that it was wrong, and it wasn’t a spectacle or just — you know, it’s actually someone’s emotions, you know, that I stepped on. And it was very — it was just — it was rude, period. And, you know, I’d like to be able to apologize to her in person. And I wanted to –
JAY LENO: So when did you know you were wrong? Was it afterwards? as you were doing it? When did it strike you, “Uh-oh”?
I’m sure you saw the 30 second snippet of Chris Brown on Larry King LIVE earlier this week where Chris seemed to be suffering from memory loss, and hissubsequent press releasewhere he basically said he “misspoke” when he stated in the clip that he didn’t remember beating Rihanna. In the statement, Chris said to watch the ENTIRE enterview because the clip was taken out of context, well the entire interview makes him look way worse!
With his mommy on his side, Chris never seemed to answer a direct question and his memory of the incident seemed lacking. Mark Garagos, Chris’ attorney stepped in once or twice which basically means Chris was effin up. Whatever the case may be, he was mighty brave to go on the show in the first place, but was he REALLY ready?
Chris Brown released a statement regarding the 30 second snippet of his upcoming Larry King LIVE interview that was released recently. In that interview, Chris is asked if he remembers beating Rihanna and he says “No,” well now he has admitted he lied on his memory:
“There have been reports on the internet that I didn’t remember what happened that night with Rihanna. I want to try and set things straight.
That 30 seconds of the interview they used of me was taken from a one hour interview during which that same question was asked something like 4 or 5 times — and when you look at the entire interview you will see it is not representative of what I said.
The first four times – or how ever many times it was – I gave the same answer — which was that I didn’t think it was appropriate for me to talk about what happened that night. I said it was not right for me and it really wasn’t fair to Rihanna. The fifth time – or whatever it was – I just misspoke. I was asked, “Do you remember doing it?” and I said, “No.”
Of course I remember what happened. Several times during the interview, my mother said that I came to her right afterwards and told her everything. But it was and still is a blur. And yes, I still can’t believe it happened because it is not me or who I am or is what happened like anything I have ever done before.
As I have said several times previously, I am ashamed of and sorry for what happened that night and I wish I could relive that moment and change things, but I can’t. I take full responsibility for my actions. What I have to do now is to prove to the world that this was an isolated incident and that is not who I am and I intend to do so by my behavior now and in the future.”
