A night after ambushing Taylor Swift on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards, somber Kanye West told Jay Leno he is going to try to take some time and figure out his issues, to try to understand what the heck made him react like that.
Well, Stephen Colbert has it all figured out.
Last December, the Comedy Central figure launched Operation: Humble Kanye in an effort to knock the celeb world's perennial egomaniac and sore loser down a peg.
On The Colbert Report in the aftermath of Kanye's outburst this week, he thinks his long-running operation may have had something to do with the blowup Sunday.
Stephen Colbert reacts to Kanye's meltdown as many of us have.
Was the outburst actually directed towards Colbert? Stephen thinks so! Why is Kanye going after Taylor Swift, and not the people who actually beat him for awards?
Why would the jackass not go after Eninem, Beyonce or whatever ate Lady Gaga? Colbert believes he knows why. Because he and Taylor Swift are totally friends.
Makes perfect sense to us. We feel enlightened.
