Kanye West had everyone talking – and crying – this year at the Grammy Awards when he paid tribute to his mother with a very special performance. I’m not even that big of a Kanye fan but it was hard to deny the emotions that he evoked on the stage that night. He has nowo come out with some endearing words for his mother. From Celebitchy,
“Rapper Kanye West says he’s been putting his priorities in place since his mother’s death. “If there’s anything my mom taught me [it] is to enjoy life,” West, 30, wrote on his blog on Wednesday. “I don’t do anything I don’t love anymore … While people chase money I pursue happiness.”
West’s mother died of heart disease and other factors Nov. 10th – one day after undergoing cosmetic surgery. The rapper paid tribute to his mom at this year’s Grammy Awards. On his blog, the multiple Grammy winner also wrote about the joys of making new music and recording “my first verse in the last six months” two days earlier in Japan.
“It felt good and I was inspired … tragedy can produce great art and this is definitely true … life is good … good as finding the perfect fabric for a simple one button casual blazer with matching pants.”
While I wouldn’t compare the death of my mother to a blazer, the sentiment is nice all the same. I do hate it when people who have more money than they could ever know what to do with, speak about how it’s not important to them and there are better things in life. Of course you don’t care about it and of course there are better things! But I think we’re all willing to let Kanye slide a little bit as he grieves for his mom.
His words are touching, there’s no denying that and my heart goes out to anyone who has lost a parent.
