Obama calls kanye west a "jackass" WOW! that sucks!

Kanye West unabashedly drinking a bottle of Hennessy on the red carpet while girlfriend Amber Rose posed for photos - is this the cause of his outburst at the VMAs?http://static.guim.co.uk/sys-images/music/Pix/pictures/2009/9/14/1252920013539/Kanye-West-grabs-the-mic--001.jpg

Rapper Kanye West vowed to remove himself from the limelight of fame in an exclusive interview with Jay Leno last night. West offered what appeared to be a sincere, nearly tearful explanation of the events that resulted in him interrupting an acceptance speech by singer Taylor Swift. In the unplanned interview, Leno asked West about how his mother, the late Dr. Donda West, would feel at his actions. West then revealed that he had never taken time to grieve and would eventually take time to reflect and collect himself. West said: "You know, obviously, you know, I deal with hurt. And, you know, so many celebrities, they never take the time off. I've never taken the time off to really - you know, just music after music and tour after tour," he said. "I'm just ashamed that my hurt caused someone else's hurt.” West's behavior helped him earn criticism from the most powerful man on earth, United States President, Barack Obama. President Obama was being interviewed for CNBC when he labeled West a “jackass” for crashing the stage as country singer Taylor Swift was receiving her award. President Obama made the “jackass” comment about West during an off the record portion of an interview.
