Not even Simon Cowell
was ever this tough.
In a mocking, profanity-filled post on her blog
, former American Idol
sweetheart Kelly Clarkson adds her angry voice to the celebrity chorus against Kanye West
for his Video Music Awards outburst
during Taylor Swift
's acceptance speech.
Calling him a "sad human being," among other things, Clarkson says, "I've seen you do some pretty s----- things, but you just keep amazing me with your tactless, ass--- ways. .... It's absolutely fascinating how much I don't like you. I like everyone."
Clarkson wonders if West has suffered some deep-seated psychological damage.
"What happened to you as a child?? Did you not get hugged enough?" Clarkson writes. "Something must have happened to make you this way and I think we're
all just curious as to what would make a grown man go on national television
and make a talented artist, let alone teenager, feel like s---."
Clarkson, who was nominated against Swift for best female video, also ponders that fact that "you weren't even up for THIS award and yet you still have a problem with the outcome. Is winning a Moon Man that much of a life goal?? You can have mine if it will shut you up."
"I was actually nominated in the same category that Taylor won and I was excited for her," she writes. "So why can't you be?? I'm not even mad at you for being an ass----. ... I just pity you because you're a sad human being.
But Clarkson doesn't just rant for the entire post. The singer praises
for showing grace in
the situation, calling her a "class act." And she also praises Swift: "You
outsell [West]," Clarkson writes. "That's why he's bitter. You
know I love your work! Keep it up girl!"
