Haiti Telethon to Kanye West: No thanks. The telethon that George Clooney is heading up has a star studded lineup of performers, but Kanye won’t be one of them. His reputation has gotten him on the black list of Hollywood.

Kanye royally made an a$$ of himself at the VMAs and it doesn’t seem people have forgotten. Taylor Swift will be performing on the telecast though. Coincidence? From the New York Daily News:
During a televised goodwill event for Hurricane Katrina victims in 2005, West ranted that “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.”And at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, the rapper surprisingly stormed the stage to interrupt Taylor Swift as she was accepting an award.
“After what he said on the Katrina telethon and the way he behaved at the MTV Video Music Awards, everyone agrees it’s just best that he does not participate,” a source said.
“Kayne has to make everything about himself,” the source added. “He will do anything to steal the spotlight and, well, this night it’s just not about him.”
It’s about time Kanye had some consequences for his behavior. He needs to know rudeness isn’t tolerated, no matter how much you think you are right.
