Justin Bieber Absolves Kanye West of All Sins

Despite My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy's universal acclaim, some people (like, for one, G.O.O.D. Music turncoat Consequence) still like to portray Kanye as a selfish jerk. Well, that's a thing of the past now: Speaking to XXL, Justin Bieber confirms he has collaborated with 'Ye, and then makes it clear beyond a reasonable doubt that West is an upstanding dude. Says Bieber: "I got to be in the studio with him and work with him and see how he works and talk to him — and talk to him as a friend, and not like someone [in] business. He’s not really an asshole, like everyone makes him out to be. I mean, he can, he can do bad things, but he’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.” Wait, hold on a second — did Bieber just say asshole? [XXL]
