Kanye West Defended by Jay-Z

Kanye West didn’t deserve to be vilified for ambushing Taylor Swift at Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards — according to Jay-Z.
Kanye came under fire for storming the stage during Swift’s big moment as she was being presented with the Best Female Video prize.
The rapper grabbed the microphone and told the star-studded audience Beyonce Knowles should have won, but has since apologized to Taylor personally for wrecking her evening.
Even Barack Obama had opinion on the incident!
But Jay thinks Kanye has been treated unfairly.
“Of course it was rude because it was her moment, but that’s the way he really felt,” Jay-Z, 39, told BBC Radio 1.
“I think it was rude, but the way they’re treating him … He’s on the cover of every paper. He didn’t kill anybody. No one got harmed.”
Jay-Z admitted his pal’s actions were “inappropriate at the time,” but justifies the diss.
“He’s just a super-passionate person,” he said.
