Kanye West -- Goodbye Mr. Grinch

12/19/2008 11:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Now we feel a little bad about totally ripping on his dreadful "SNL" performance -- because for the first time in, like, ever, Kanye West actually was really friendly to the paparazzi.

I missed his SNL performance, but I do like his new song, "Love Lock Down"--and I've never been a fan before. So, I like his new "style" of music here.

Kanye, you should go to the same plastic surgeon that you send your mom to. It would be so nice to be rid of your dumb ass. Go in and ask for a lip reduction. Thats why you can't sing....your lips are too big. You are a no talent big mouth. Well, I guess the fat lips go with that big mouth. I bet your boyfriends sure do enjoy you.....

#10 You need to master the English language, or atleast work on getting a slight grasp on it.

ps. Kanye is among the worst humans on the planet.

#12 Your message is fine, once I figured out what exactly you were trying to say (hence the diss). And, yes I know how to toast, not the most difficult of tasks to master. A death in the family is horrible, but I can't even muster one ounce of sympathy for this King of all jack asses, once again, he is a horrible human being!! He exploited his mom's death anyways - he's trashy as trashy gets. I'm empathetic of those who deserve empathy and he doesn't. One last point, he is one of only a handful of people in the world that truly bring out disgust in me so......

Kanye West is on of the most ego-maniacal people I've seen in a long time. He doesn't seem to understand that the world does not revolve around him. He doesn't wait for compliments , he'll just give them to himself. He throws more tantrums than my 2year old. I think he may suffer form delusions of grandeur. It's actually pretty funny to watch.

Listen, we all totally bitch when somebody lip-syncs on SNL, now somebody sings live and blows a complicated arrangement and we still get pissed off. Every Performer can have a bad day. If you listen to the song carefully (any other performance) you will see that it is pretty complicated from a breathng perspective to bounce the notes like that especially if you are not a singer (remember he is a rapper). I am not a Kanye fan but the song is really a good one, but maybe not something to be tackled somplace like SNL, where you don't want all that computer aided support and technology because people are afraid of being busted out. BESIDES, HE PUT HIMSELF OUT THERE, AND TRIED TO GIVE US A LIVE PERFORMANCE. It's Christmas!! Let's Cut the Guy Some Slack, this is his first blown performance.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!
