KANYE GETS EMOTIONAL ON "LENO"
Tuesday, September 15, 2009
The Jay Leno Show premiered in primetime on NBC last night and luck was on his side. Kanye West had just stealer the spotlight from Taylor Swift at the VMA's the night before. Everyone was upset with him. It was all that anyone was talking about and Leno had him booked on his first show. Kanye was just supposed to perform with Rihanna and Jay-Z, but he sat down with Leno for a quick interview. It was good stuff!
Kanye looked visably upset from the start. He couldn't look Leno in the eye and apologized to Taylor for being "rude." Of course, Kanye is still mourning the loss of his mother. Jay went there - asking Kanye how his mother would feel about what he did. Kanye got emotional. There was a long pause before he admitted that she would have not been pleased. Great stuff.
The show itself isn't much different than "The Tonight Show." Nice new set. Same band. Similar format. No desk. Great to see "headlines" again.
The premiere scored huge ratings nationally, but it will be interesting to see how the show does in a few weeks. Stay tuned...
