Kathy Griffin Wishes She Was the One Who Got Kanye'd
Plus, Kristen Stewart missed the memo on lying in Hollywood.
It was a moment that will forever live in pop culture infamy: Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift's VMA speech to declare that Beyonce should have won the award instead, leaving Taylor's jaw dropped and turning the public against him for ruining her moment. Taylor eventually recovered (as did Kanye), but Kathy Griffin wishes she was on the receiving end of the classic "I'mma let you finish..." tirade.
During an Extra interview on Wednesday, Kathy was asked her thoughts about Kim Kardashian and Kanye, and while she thinks "the whole relaationship seems like a photo op," she then went even further. "I wish he had done that Taylor Swift thing to me, because now she can kill puppies and people think she's wonderful and adorable because of one time when Kanye, like my mother, had too much Hennessy."
It's not that Kathy's been struggling of late -- she received an Emmy nomination for her stand-up special Tired Hooker, and she already seems to be polishing up her next celebrity focused comedy routine if this interview is any indication. Calling the Kristen Stewart-Robert Pattinson cheating scandal a "dream come true," Kathy says that Kristen played it all wrong.
"Doesn't she know anything about Hollywood? Lie, Lie and stand by your lie."
As for Mariah Carey joining the American Idol judging panel, K declares it's "going to be a bag of crazy," and she's really hoping/waiting "to see her in a tiara."
