Life is all about choices, and she obviously made a bad one.

This is no different from someone who overdoses on drugs or a wrestler who abuses them.

She has no one to blame but herself.

It's awful. But he's not blameless in this. Using his muscle all this time harking after the Great White Bigot instead of his dear mother's failing health. That goofy N word crusade and other silliness has to end black folks. And focus your inertia on what's really making you disappear. Astonishing rates of incarceration, propensities for drug addiction, stranger on stranger conflict, and shocking pre-mature death. And don't send me a bunch of dumb hate mail. I don't read it...

"Turn to your music in your time of need" translates to "I'm tired of all the stuff I'm listening to right now, could you not waste a lot of time on mourning your dead mom and get back in the studio?"

Wow, you're pretty mean!

I usually tune out when I see anything written about Kanye West, but his mother's passing is so very sad. She was his defender, his supporter and his biggest fan, and anyone with a great mom can understand the pain in his loss. My thoughts are with him and his fiance and family.

At least this has (temporarily) pushed Britney off of TMZ. Way to take one for the team Mrs. West.

this reminds me of the basketball player that had a heart condition some ten years ago, I think he played for the celtics. He had a dream team of doctors telling him to stop playing or you will die. He found some other doctor to say he was fine. Three weeks later......dead. If a doctor says basically "I dont want to make money off you because you may die on me" like the first doctor did, believe him. and for the right price people will do anything. so dont be surprised she found a doctor willing to put her under the knife. For such a smart woman, this was totally retarded. I bet the doc that did do the operation covered his ass with a multitude of waivers stating he was not liable if she did die.
