Kanye West Throws Support Behind ... James Blunt?!?

by at .

With the Grammy Awards coming up, it's no surprise the race for Best New Artist would be strongly contested.

But it is a tad shocking who Kanye West appears to be throwing his support behind. Leaving his hip hop roots behind for a moment of candor, the rapper had the following to say:

"I like Chris Brown, but James Blunt should win."

Really, Kanye? Hasn't Blunt won enough? The guy is dating Petra Nemcova, after all.

Seen here performing in Miami in the week before the Super Bowl, West has been known to surprise fans with his allegiances. We caught the mogul making nice with Paul McCartney awhile back. Can't say we saw that coming.

Then again, when Jesus walks with you, guess that makes you a popular friend to many.
