Man of the Year Kanye Needs A Hug, Break

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.

That video was so sad to watch. I felt bad for him that the whole world was peeking in at such a private moment.His mom must have been an amazing force. She was a young single mom who earned her PhD, taught for years, and became head of the department at her University, while raising him alone.

Elsa ^ what makes Kanye a bigot, I fail to see where you're coming from. Kanye is egotistical at times and self centered, as are many people in the entertainment industry. The only difference with Kanye is that he doesn't hide it, he's not faking the funk like most. Bless his soul and his mama's, Kanye's accomplished more than people really understand and GQ was good enough to recognize it.

"You could almost see him thinking "Here I am with countless adoring fans, total command of the stage and millions of records sold but what good is it without my mama?" He really just looked so alone on stage like everything he had didn't mean a thing." nica chica i agree with you.that video was so sad. alexis, i think from what i read, also was there for him throughout his time in the hospital back in 2001 or 2002. with that said i think kanye is blessed to have a woman like her in his life. my prayers go out to him.
