Feminism: (Noun) The advocacy of women's rights.
Kanye West was invited to perform for a recent taping of the VH1 concert series "Storytellers." When you book Kanye West for anything, it's pretty safe to say you're booking the crazy. So it was par for the course when Kanye first trashed Radiohead's Thom Yorke. However things got a little out of hand after had some interesting, uh, opinions:
A little later, West asked the crowd, "Can't we give Chris a break? ... I know I make mistakes in life." He was referring to R&B singer Chris Brown, who was arrested on the night of the Grammys on suspicion of beating his girlfriend Rihanna.
In the same context, West earned loud applause with his declaration: "Michael Jackson, amazing. Michael Phelps, amazing ... He's a real f---in' person; he makes mistakes," referring to the champion swimmer's recent bong pipe brouhaha.
VH1 has cleaned up those comments a bit, and it also included West's less-popular follow-up observation: "O.J. Simpson, amazing. Is he not? What he did, when he did, what he did. Was he not amazing though?" (Source)
I just hope Michael Phelps appreciates Kanye sticking up for him by lumping him in with O.J, Michael Jackson and Chris Brown. That's like punching someone in the face to wipe an eyelash off their cheek.
