Yes, everyone remembers the 2009 VMA awards when he interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech to tell everyone that Beyonce had a better video.
And yes, he's the same guy that released a track on his latest album entitled "I am God", and thought it would be hilarious to call his daughter North West... But there must be some redeeming features to Kanye West... Right?
Well, for starters he's actually quite a talented musician.
I think he's got some pretty decent tracks, but on top of that - he's actually technically talented too. He's not one of those rap artists that shows up in the studio, drops a few rhymes and then rushes off to hide behind the tinted windows of an SUV.
Kanye was doing production work for other artists and contributing to the music industry long before his days of fame and glory.
He also understands the music industry in a way that many other artists don't.
When his album Yeezus was leaked onto the internet, he shrugged it off and accepted that he'd have probably downloaded a pirated album if he was in the same position.
He also does a considerable amount of charity work and is a successful businessman - two things many people would love to have on their resume.
All this makes me think he might not be as much of a jerk as we all think. Maybe all the arrogance and prima-donna outbursts are all him playing a persona...
Maybe it's all for our entertainment - he's sacrificed his personal life and made himself the butt of many jokes, just so we could enjoy the show!
But then again... he's also the person that let his wife walk out of the house looking like a sofa, so maybe he is a jerk after all!
