Joe Jackson Wants Kanye West Banished From Show-Biz

Leave it to Kanye West to make Joe Jackson seem sane by comparison.

Gabby Babble reports that Michael Jackson’s father—whose own public image is problematic at best—has added his voice to the chorus of disapproval that has greeted West since his full-frontal assault on Taylor Swift’s VMAs acceptance speech.

Jackson recalled of the evening’s events,

“I had just gotten through speaking to [West], he was introducing me to his girlfriend (Amber Rose) and then three minutes later he jumped up on stage. And people booed Kanye all night. I don’t know what he was doing, he jumped up on stage and snatched that microphone out of that poor girl’s hand.”

At which point Jackson added,

“They should blackball him out of showbusiness for that. He just leapt (sic) up there; that was bad.”

Wow; wise words from an unlikely source. But then, even a blind pig finds an acorn sometimes.
