Kanye West has attempted to communicate with the outside world in a way that neither required his LV branded MacBook Air, nor his CAPS key – the rapper has stepped forward and offered bold and touching words of support to Rihanna, whom he refers to as like a ‘sister’ [Website – Amy Grindhouse].
There are too many shocking news bites to post in full again, but in summary Rihanna got a beating from her love interest Chris Brown. Brown is under investigation and is likely facing serious charges and jail time for allegedly hitting, biting and scratching his girlfriend.
West, upon hearing the reason for two of his fellow musicians entirely missing the Grammy Awards, offered the following words of support to Rihanna.
“I was completely devastated by the concept of what I heard,” the rapper said Tuesday on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS-FM radio show. “I was completely devastated during the performance,” West said. He also said he knows Rihanna, better than Brown, 19, as he went on tour with the 20-year-old singer.
“Rihanna is so important to our culture … to pop music. I feel like she is the most important artist in music and has the most potential. Her taste level and her age … she has the potential to be the greatest artist of all time.”
“In that sense, I feel like that’s my baby sis,” he said. “I would do any and everything to help her in any situation.
West didn’t get into specifics, but he did say “All I want to say is, it’s so devastating. Just as a person, I don’t care how famous she is or even if she just worked at McDonald’s … [abuse] should never happen. It should never come to that place.”
