Kanye Self-Destructs on SNL

12/14/2008 10:36 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dare we say it? Kanye West could learn a lot from Ashlee Simpson -- such as if you can't sing, lip-synch. Turns out It's less embarrassing.
Kanye West: Click to view!
West stunk up the stage on "SNL" last night -- so maybe it was supposed to be a joke.

MOST TIMES THESE RAPPERS ARE SO CLOSE TO THERE MOMS THEY MEAN EVERYTHING TO THEM VERY VERY STRANGE HE PROBABILITY ONLY GIVES A CRAP ABOUT HIMSELF.

It didn't even look like him last night!!! I wonder if was even him?? And next, why anyone come on here to correct someone elases grammar?? This is TMZ not a graduate level thesis. So what is someone posts a comment and misspells and incorrectly/mistaknely used a word in it's wrong contexts. As long as his/her points get across that's all that matters. If you are looking for college level comments and text then leave the TMZ website and go the New Yorkers. Honestly, even the most highly educated people makes typos and mistakes.

If he thought that new mic thingy would help him out - he is sadly mistaken. Never was a good rapper/hip-hop singer (among a lots of others). Too much hype and $$$$$$$$$$$$ around this man....and why?

kristina, obviously tmz is not bashing him for lip syncing because they said he would have done better with it. he thinks he can do everything and for some reason decided to sing every song on his new album. last night on SNL i was appalled that anyone in charge of anything would let him actually try to sing live on national TV because its pretty obvious he HAS no singing talent.

He is a disgusting human being!!!! DISGUSTING! No talent, whining SOB. If I never saw him again my life would be so much better. Every time I see him a little throw up ends up in my mouth.

KANYE IS A PHONY AND A FAKEPIECE OF $HIT. HE CAN'T SING AND PLAYS THE TOUGH GUY WANNABE. SOME DAY THE KARMA TRAIN IS GOING TO COME TO HIS NEIGHBORHOOD AND HE IS IN FOR A BIG ASS WHOOPIN. I ONLY HOPE THAT IT COMES SOON.

I watched this live last night and could not believe what I was hearing. It was THAT bad. His arrogance is beyond the beyond.

Probably the worst performance by anyone I've ever seen. Off key and quite often flat. Clearly the dude thinks far too much of himself. Reminded me of some of the bad American Idol wannabes who never made it as far as getting past the first audition.

Dear "CollegeEducated":

First, I don't believe for a moment you have been college educated... Honestly, who bitches about correct grammar? It really shouldn't offend a college educated person.

Second, proofreading is really not that difficult, assuming you can read seeing as you are on the TMZ website... Most people, not just college graduates, at least scan over what they have written before submitting it.

I'm really sorry you're stupid, but it is most definitely not my fault. Have a nice day!

Ok...so one bad performance... but you know what on the whole, Kanye is an amazing artist. he is not just some "rapper" if anyone has followed him from the start of his career you would at least see how he has transformed. and it is awful to say that he is self-centered and doesn't care about his mother's death. Of course he does, everyone grieves in their own way, and he chose to soldier on and keep performing- probably cuz thats what his mom would want him to do. his most recent album is different then everything he's done so far, and he deserves credit for putting himself out there as an artist. he is not just a rapper, he has contributed so much to music, and in the future we will look back and see him as a major influence. he's not trying to be Elvis, he is trying to be an artist, be influential, and have an effect on the world.
