Kanye West is known just as much for pissing people off as he is for his hot tracks. Between the Taylor Swift debacle and hating on George W. Bush, he is pretty much the mouth that launched a thousand memes. ButÃ‚Â now ‘YeÃ‚Â has found forgiveness and absolution from the Canadian Messiah himself,Ã‚Â Justin Bieber. The teen titan defends the controversial rapper in the latest issue of XXL Magazine. Well ok, “defends” is a bit strong. But he says Kanye “isn’t really an a–hole,”Ã‚Â and we’ll take what we can get.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I got to be in the studio with him and work with him and see how he works and talk to himÃ¢â‚¬â€and talk to him as a friend, and not like someone [in the] business,Ã¢â‚¬Â says the Biebs. Ã¢â‚¬Å“HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not really an a–hole like everyone makes him out to be. I mean, he can do bad things, but heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s really generally a good guy. He can make bad decisions, you know, as well as everyone can. But generally I think he is a good guy.Ã¢â‚¬Â The two started a Twitter bromance last year with a series of flattering tweets, before recording a remix ofÃ‚Â Ã‚Â Kanye’sÃ‚Â Ã‚Â ”Runaway Love.” No word yet if Yeezy is receiving threats from jealous BelieberÃ‚Â tweensÃ‚Â who claim Justin as their own. WatchÃ‚Â your back,Ã‚Â Kanye!
