Barack Obama thinks Kanye West is a jackass.

Kelly Clarkson can't even comprehend how much she hates the rapper.

Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift

But the woman at the center of this week's controversy appears ready to move on from it. Taylor Swift told ABC News Radio this morning that she's heard from West, following his ridiculous interruption of her VMA acceptance speech.

"Kanye did call me, and he was very sincere in his apology, and I accepted that apology."

Last night, Kanye appeared on The Jay Leno Show and said:

"I'm just ashamed that my hurt caused someone else's hurt — and I don't try to justify it because I was just in the wrong... I need to, after this, take some time off and just analyze how I'm going to make it through the rest of this life, how I'm going to improve."

It seems like an easy question, folks, but whose side are you on in this feud?

President Barack Obama may be having trouble unifying the country behind his health care plan, but can't be accused of being out of touch here.

Thinking what the rest of the country is thinking, and actually saying it off the record, the Prez called Kanye West "a jackass" to CNBC yesterday.

He really did - off the record. But his remark became public when it was tweeted by ABC's Terry Moran on Twitter, Politico.com reported Monday.

Way to go, guys. Not that we disagree with the Prez in the least.

An ABC statement explains, without denying that the remark was made, that: "ABC News employees prematurely Tweeted a portion of those remarks that turned out to be from an off-the-record portion of the interview."

El Presidente

No thumbs up for Kanye from the President - or anyone - this week.

Meanwhile, Kanye West himself admitted to Jay Leno what Americans, including our Commander-in-Chief, had already figured out: He blew it.

"It was rude, period," he said.

Sunday at the MTV VMAs, the rapper jumped on stage, crashing Taylor Swift's speech and declaring that her award should have gone to Beyonce.

After fielding widespread criticism and apologizing, West told Leno last night, "I'm just ashamed that my hurt caused someone else's hurt."

West, who has had similar outbursts at previous awards shows, though never this bad, said, "I need to, after this, take some time off and just analyze how I'm going to make it through the rest of this life, how I'm going to improve.

"If there's anything I could do to help Taylor in the future or help anyone, I'd like [to]," Kanye said, adding that he knew he really screwed up bad "as soon as I gave the mike back to her and she didn't keep going."

It's official: Kanye West is an awful human being.

A day after his much-vieweed outburst against Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards, celebrities from all industries have come together on Twitter and spoken out against the egotistical rapper.

Influential Celebrity

Here's a sampling of what various stars had to say about the incident:

Spencer Pratt: Let's be very clear King Spencer would never do anything like what Kayne just did to a sweet soul like Taylor!

Heidi Montag: congrats @taylorswift13 on your vma!!! you deserve it more than anyone!! I saw the devil in action when kanye west stole your mic! u rock!!!

Adam Lambert: Kanye needs to chill. He freaks out every year. It ain't that deep man.

Joel Madden: WOW Taylor Swift's first VMA and she didn't even get to ENJOY it. Kanye You were just a bully on that one man.

Kellie Pickler: Tator Tot, you handled yourself with Grace. Kanye, go grow some f-ing balls bitch! don't mess w/my lil sis!!

As if we couldn't love Kelly Clarkson any more...

The original American Idol woke up this morning and responded to Kanye West's outrageous behavior at last night's MTV Video Music Awards by taking to her official blog.

Kelly summed up our thoughts on the assholic Kanye perfectly, so we'll just let her take it from here...

“Dear Kanye, What happened to you as a child?? Did you not get hugged enough?? I think we’re all just curious as to what would make a grown man go on national television and make a talented artist, let alone teenager, feel like s—. I mean, I’ve seen you do some pretty s—ty things, but you just keep amazing me with your tactless, asshole ways.

Kanye the Ass

"It’s absolutely fascinating how much I don’t like you. I like everyone. I even like my asshole ex that cheated on me over you... which is pretty odd since I don’t even personally know you.

The best part of this evening is that you weren’t even up for THIS award and yet you still have a problem with the outcome. Is winning a moon man that much of a life goal?? You can have mine if it will shut you up. Is it that important, really??

“I was actually nominated in the same category that Taylor won and I was excited for her... so why can’t you be?? I’m not even mad at you for being an asshole... I just pity you because you’re a sad human being."

Amen, sister! Pink was less wordy, but equally vicious toward West. She Tweeted: Kanye west is the biggest piece of s*** on earth. Quote me.

As for Taylor Swift? The 19-year old cutie took the proverbial high road, simply saying: "I don't want to start anything because I had a great night tonight."

We'll start it for you, T-Swizzle. Choose a side in this feud, readers. Whose team are you on?

It was the awards moment of the year, perhaps even the decade:

Kanye West crashed Taylor Swift's heartfelt acceptance speech at last night's MTV Video Music Awards and told the world that Beyonce deserved the trophy for Best Female Video. Some readers are actually referring to the act as racist, but we'll just stick with obscene and disrespectful.

In response to his behavior, Kanye issued the following apology on his blog this morning:

“I’m sooooo sorry to Taylor Swift and her fans and her mom [Andrea]. I spoke to her mother right after and she said the same thing my mother would’ve said. She is very talented! I like the lyrics about being a cheerleader and she’s in the bleachers!

I’m in the wrong for going on stage and taking away from her moment! Beyonce’s video was the best of this decade!!! I’m sorry to my fans if I let you guys down!!!!! I’m sorry to my friends at MTV. I will apologize to Taylor 2mrw. Welcome to the real world!!!! Everybody wanna booooo me but I’m a fan of real pop culture!!! No disrespect but we watchin’ the show at the cribe right now cause.

I’m still happy for Taylor!!!! Boooyaawww!!!! You are very talented!!!!! I gave my awards to Outkast when they deserved it over me… That’s what it is!!!! I’m not crazy yall, I’m just real. Sorry for that!!! I really feel bad for Taylor and I’m sincerely sorry!!! Much Respect!!!!!”

  • Wasted Kanye
  • Pair of Jerks

Think this apology is sufficient? What else would you have West do in order to make up for his boorish antics?

We'd force the guy to sleep with someone as ugly and annoying as Amber Rose. That will give him a STD teach him a lesson!

Meanwhile, Beyonce showed a lot of class by inviting Swift on stage after the former won the award for Best Video. Watch Taylor's second attempt at an acceptance speech after the jump.

Wow. Incredibly, Joe Wilson's outcry of "You lie!" in the direction of Barack Obama was not the most inappropriate example of public humilation this week.

At the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, Taylor Swift defeated Lady GaGa, Katy Perry, and Beyonce to take home the trophy for Best Female Video.

As a visibly humble, appreciative Swift took the stage and began her acceptance speech, Kanye West actually grabbed the microphone from her and declared that Beyonce - with "one of the greatest videos of all-time" - deserved to win.

The camera cut to Beyonce in the audience. She was horrified. Kanye (who drank Hennessy on the red carpet) ran away from the stage like a pathetic little bitch; and Taylor was left alone, embarrassed and speechless.

To the crowd's credit, they stood and applauded Swift, but the damage had been done. Watch the stunning video below and then send in encouragement to Taylor. We love you, girl!

Was this some sort of stunt? Something Swift may have known about ahead of time, similar to the Bruno/Eminem charade at the MTV Movie Awards? It doesn't appear that way.

You suck, Kanye West.

Taylor Swift was left alone on stage to deal with the ramifications of Kanye West's ridiculously rude, incomprehensibly inappropriate act during the MTV Video Music Awards. Write in and let the world know you're on Taylor's side!

Michael Jackson has been dead a whole month. That means it's totally time to anoint someone the new King of Pop, and Kanye West thinks he knows just the guy:

Kanye West.

Okay, not really. But would you be surprised?

This is all a sham, as Scrape TV made up a faux interview in which it quoted West as saying so. And as with some satirical jokes that just hit too close to home, the Onion-esque story was picked up as legit by multiple sources.

Ace Showbiz, Celebuzz, the Superficial and a handful of other news sites all reported Kanye's claims as fact. While that's shoddy reporting, and the joke on them, it shows what an egomaniac Kanye West is that this would be blindly accepted:

Despite what some celeb gossip sites are reporting, Kanye West made no quotes about being the new King of Pop. But he probably did think it. [Photos: Fame Pictures]

"You know everyone loves and respects Michael, but times change," the humble star said. "It's sad to see Michael gone, but it makes a path for a new King of Pop."

"I'm willing to take that on. There's nobody who can match me in sales and in respect, so it only makes sense for me to take the crown and become the new King."

"First there was Elvis, then Michael, now in the 21st century it's Kanye's time to rule. I have nothing but respect for Michael, but someone needs to pick up where he left off, and there's nobody better than me to do that. I am the new King of Pop."

Unfortunately, these quotes are all made up. Reports of him hooking up with Kim Kardashian and sparking her breakup with Reggie Bush? Less clear.

We knew there was something fishy about the Kim Kardashian/Reggie Bush break-up.

After all, sources claimed it was a mutual decision because the couple simply could not make time for one another; Reggie was off to New Orleans to practice with the Saints, while Kim had to film more episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

But isn't that reality show about her life? Why couldn't it simply film her life with Bush?

Now, a more sordid side to the story is coming out - and it points a cheating finger at Kim and... Kanye West!

Sources have told Fox News that “Reggie saw text messages on Kim’s phone from Kanye and flipped out on her."

  • All Broken Up

Needless to say, these weren't your basic, harmless messages, the insider added.

“The texts referenced a night they hung out, how much fun he had, how hot Kim was, and more racy things that got Reggie’s imagination running."

Note to Bush: save your imagination the work. You can just search the Internet for racy images of Kim.

Reportedly, Reggie confronted Kim, the pair fought over her interactions with Kanye and "they realized there were trust issues on both sides, and couldn’t go forward,” said the source.

Were there ever! Follow this article's jump to discover what Reggie may have been up to while Kim was heading West.

Are Kanye West and Amber Rose, his latest model fling, in the process of patching things up after their breakup was sadly announced June 10?

Looks like they just might be.

According to Perez Hilton, Kanye West and Amber Rose were seen together at Ellen Degeneres' TBS special taping Wednesday night in Chicago.

Seen, as in as a couple. As in, full-on, back together.

Kanye and Amber Rose

Hot couple Kanye West and Amber Rose broke up last week after about three months of public appearances, short hair, bizarre fashion and occasional rants.

“They are no longer a couple,” West's representative confirmed to The New York Post last week, officially ending the relationship between the two.

No official announcement has been made about Amber Rose and Kanye's reconciliation, but Perez says he has this on good authority, so we'll see.

Kanye West might be down with Chris Brown and O.J. Simpson, but he's no longer getting down with Amber Rose.

“They are no longer a couple,” West's representative confirmed to The New York Post Today, officially ending the relationship between the rapper and the short-haired model.

However, it hasn't taken Kanye long to find a new odd-looking woman with whom he can chill: he announced on The View this morning that he’ll be co-headlining a tour this summer with Lady Gaga.

"She’s talented and so incredible that she’s not an opening act,” he said. “We’re doing it together, with no opening act.”

Wow. That's high praise and a surprisingly humble gesture from Kanye. He's totally doing GaGa. (Sorry random Speedy dude, Lady's supposed boyfriend, but you can't compete with Kanye West.)

Just imagine the combination of sunglasses the world would be privy to if Kanye West ever dated Lady GaGa.
