Kanye West could use a million hugs. Over the weekend he got back on stage in Paris just one week after his mother, Donda West died unexpectedly. Kanye performed a 60 minute set, but broke down in tears and had to leave the stage when he tried to close the show with the song he wrote for his mom, "Hey Momma." So sad. While it's impressive that he wants to get back to work, perhaps he should take a little more time for himself before pushing himself back on stage. He is expected tomorrow in Oklahoma for her memorial service.
On a slightly brighter note, Kanye (along with Bill Clinton and Daniel Craig) was named GQ's Man of the Year. In the magazine he opens up a little about his plans to marry his fiance, Alexis Pfeiffer. He said:
"I'm just going to go and get married -- I'm not going to make a big deal out of it. It's not to prove anything to anyone -- it's for me, for stability in my life, and I'm so happy that I found someone that I really love, that challenges me, that keeps my life interesting, that's just as crazy as I am."
Alexis was by Kanye's side this weekend in Paris and I'm sure he'll be needing her more than ever these days. Stability and love sound like the perfect combination to help Kanye out during this unimaginably sad time.
