Jay-Z on Kanye West : ‘He Didn’t Kill Anybody’
Like Alicia, Jay is critical of the witch hunt against Kanye and states that even though the outburst was in poor taste it was undoubtably Kanye being the passionate artist he has always been:
“Of course it was rude because it was her moment, but that‘s the way he really felt,” Jay-Z, 39, tells BBC Radio 1. West, 32, interrupted Swift’s speech for her best female video award to opine that Jay-Z’s wife, Beyonce, should have won for “Single Ladies.”
Jay-Z goes on on, “I think it was rude, but the way they‘re treating him … He’s on the cover of every paper. He didn‘t kill anybody. No one got harmed.
Jay-Z admitted his pal’s actions were “inappropriate at the time,” but justifies the diss.
“He‘s just a super-passionate person,” he said.
