Kanye West isn’t a jerk – he’s misunderstood.
It’s true that he once grabbed the mic from a young Taylor Swift mid-sentence at the VMA’s, and told the world Beyonce was more deserving of the Best Female Video award before Taylor could hardly get a “Thank you” in.
It’s also true that Yeezy refers to himself as a God (which offends a lot of people), a genius (because as he explained, he’d be lying if he said he wasn’t), and constantly gets into fights with the paparazzi (who he instructs not to speak in his presence).
Not to mention, he took a jab at Justin Timberlake recently, and went all out on Jimmy Kimmel and his inability to enjoy “good p*ssy” throughout his lifetime.
So ok, in some instances, Kanye be all the way trippin’…
… But a lot of times he means well & makes good points. So, today we’re going to remind you that Yeezy has had a lot of good, selfless, happy moments that prove he’s not a jerk.
& Here they are:
We admit it – and you should too – we were feigning… DYING to see his baby girl Nori… & Yeezy made our wish come true during an interview with Kris Jenner.
Speaking of that interview, Kanye said some really beautiful things while talking to his soon-to-be mother-in-law, for instance:
I would be on the phone with [Kim] and even at my lowest moments she’d give me energy and remind me of who I was and I needed that support at all times. […]Since my mom passed it’s been very difficult and hard to find love. It’s hard for anyone to find love, especially if you’re in a position of being famous or as they call me now, ‘polarizing.’
After I lost my mother, there were times I felt like I would put my life at risk. I felt like sometimes I didn’t have something to live for, and now I have two really special people to live for, a whole family to live for, a whole world to live for.
Kim didn’t want to accept baby gifts at her Baby Shower because she knew it would make Kanye happier if people gave charity donations instead. Aww! TMZ provided a statement from the children’s hospital who received their donations:
“Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago would like to extend its sincerest gratitude to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West for their thoughtfulness and support of the hospital. Funds donated on behalf of Kardashian and West will be directed to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Fund which will help care for the most critically ill babies and their families. We wish them all the best in the upcoming arrival of their baby.”
Recently, Kanye West helped Kim K.’s cousin CiCi Bussey – who is sick with Cancer – live out her dream of going to a Couture fashion show.
He suggested they hit up the Givenchy show in Paris together, and they did!
So as we mentioned before, Kanye and the paparazzi just do not get along… but he did apologize and hug it out with one French female pap he got into it with.
Speaking of paparazzi, more recently he was really nice to the French photographers. He told them he respected them, explaining it’s just the LA paps that work his nerves.
It took a while for Kanye to cool off after he and Amber Rose broke up but one random night, while he performed “Runaway” during a Watch The Throne show, he said this:
“To the city of Philly, I want to thank y’all for making the incredible person that this song was made for… And you’ll always be fine but the one thing I f*cked up the most was that I thought you’d always be mine. I thought you’d always be mine. I thought you’d always be mine… If you love someone tonight. Hold them real tight.”
Check out that video here.
Last night Kanye went on The Jimmy Kimmel Show to resolve his Twitter beef with Jimmy Kimmel.
The two played nice, and Kanye even admitted that he took the frustrations he has with all of media out on Jimmy, which he also admits was real high school of him. Check that out here.
Look at how happy he is here… & we’re pretty sure Oprah doesn’t chill with so-called jerks on her downtime. She’s Oprah for goodness sake!
Me and Nick Knight have been working on this video for 5 months and for creatives it’s heartbreaking when something like this happens.

After an unofficial version of his “Black Skinhead” video got leaked, rather than sound off a heartbroken Kanye asked blogs, and the media alike, to take down the unfinished version and allow him to give them the real deal in one week’s time.
If this wasn’t enough to convince you that Kanye is actually a great person, who is just misunderstood at times, we’ve got a whole gallery of Yeezy smiling just below.
