Kanye Stars Twitter Beef Against Britney, Then Says He Was "Joking!

| Filed under: Celebrity FeudsBritney SpearsKanye West

britney vs kanye

Uh oh!

We have a mini Taylor Swift situation on our hands!

Kanye West Tweeted the following on Friday about his new single with Jay-Z, H.A.M:

"H*A*M #2 on ITunes… THANK YOU!!!"

"@britneyspears: Yo britney, I'm really happy for you and I'mma let you be #1, but me and jay-z single is one of the best songs of all time.

Kanye later amended his Britney tweet to add "LOL" to the end of it.

In response, Britney's manager, Adam Leber, tweeted this:

"@kanyewest Thanks for "letting" us be #1. Much appreciated…."

Then, Leber too added the LOLs!

A whiles later, Kanye deleted his original Britney Tweet and sent out this mea culpa:

I thought LOL signified a joke… I didn't get the 2011 LOL doesn't signify a joke anymore memo… LOL or something else I guess

On a serious note I'm truly happy for @AvrilLavigne and @BritneySpears… No hate in 2011!

Hopefully Kanye won't hold it against Brit Brit and her manager.

Team Hold It Against Me or Team H*A*M?

P.S. Adding LOL at the end of a statement does not automatically make what you said before that acceptable.

    That's pretty hilarious, actually. Kanye played on the Taylor Swift/VMAs moment. Good of him not to take himself so seriously.

  2. 2

    not that serious

  3. 3

    he was joking!!! its so obvious he was joking when he used the same lines he used on taylor. it was a joke. and LOL does make it a less serious statement.

    ugh shut up perez.

  4. gold2 says – reply to this


    Thank you for finally reporting what actually happened xxx

  5. 5

    He was Joking Perez Stop Trying to make everything a big deal

  6. 6

    oh shut the f up you imbecil, jt was a joke!

  7. 7

    I thought that was beyond hilarious then he deleted it it. That was weak.

  8. 8

    its true lol doesnt make everything a joke, i know people who do it just so they can say slick shit then say lol thinking people wont get mad,,,i like some of kanyes songs but i NEVER could STAND that man

  9. 9

    he wasn't joking, he's seriously pissed, passive-aggressive, and trying to use the media to keep him name in front of the public.
    he's hating on the white women who beat him at popular music.
    Like I said, he wouldn't do this to a tall dude.

  10. 10

    i get that it was a joke but still…Kanye REALLY needs to learn how to just shut up. Jay Z is on that single with Kanye and did Jay-Z send anything to britney joking about letting her be #1?? NO. Jay, no matter what he may or may not have thought about britney being #1 on itunes, took the high road and just let it be…didn't send her anything, didn't tell her he'd be topping her….nothing. He has class. Kanye shut up & learn something from smarter artists you immature self absorbed douchebag. For once, just SHUT THE FUCK UP!

  11. 11

    OH PLEASE!! everyone's been making fun of kanye's 'imma let you…' for the last year, and he finally makes fun of himself and everyone jumps on him? whats with that? its pathetic that he cant have a laugh at himself like everyone else does… get over it

  12. 12

    Yep. No biggie. He was obviously joking. S'all good.

  13. 13

    he was joking… and We all know Kanye helped make Taylor's award wins for sympathy, so stop bringing it up!

  14. 14

    Seriously, why the hell are you trying to make something out of this? Now you're all "nice and sassy" with all that LOVEANDLIGHT bs you can't start your own controversy so you have to start one in someone elses business. IT WAS A JOKE. Besides, Taylor Swift rode that VMA controversy for ages, it's time Kanye was able to make a joke about it.

  15. 15

    It was so clear he was joking. I thought it was really funny and cute that he could make fun of himself

  16. 16

    What's so bad about that?

  17. 17

    Perez if you could get your head out of Britney's butt, maybe you'd be able to see the humor in the situation. Whether he said LOL or not it should have been clear that he was laughing at himself. Seriously nothing to make a big deal about.

  18. 18

    How can you honestly think he was being serious? With or without the LOL, this one is obvious! Some people just take life too serious I guess. Perez' new nice guy persona has gone way too far, he now thinks he is the moral compass of the world, his morals being whatever he decides they are for the day! Today his morals include "Thou shalt not jest without an LOL"

  19. 19

    His obvious, and constant, pursuit of being a complete immature, uneducated childlike brat only goes to show he is not a professional. He's an immature brat who, because of a ton of money received by selling garbage to his peers thinks his "music" is something special. It isn't. The problem are the people promoting all this garbage. But, now that the net is in full swing and is here to stay, those with an IQ of 60 now dictate the charts. We live in a sad sad time.

    "I gonna run to the fun and it aint no pun..ima get it so let it…..be."

    There, I can rhyme like a fucking 12 year old in the shower, too. Do I get 10 million and the right to be a fucking child who wouldn't know a real diamond from a shard of glass?

  20. 20

    And to all you naive fucks. It wasn't a joke. That was him being an errogant idiot then backpeddling all the way to the LOL bullshit to cover up his ridiculous comment. He knows it. He's a fucking tool.

  21. 21

    Lame ppl can't say anything anymore. RIP humor.

  22. 22

    Okay seriously, I don't even like Kanye that much as a person, and I love Britney…but that was OBVIOUSLY a joke. He was clearly playing on the whole Taylor Swift thing..not saying he "let" her be #1, but simply playing on that fact that he said "imma LET you finish". Anyone that takes that seriously is a complete idiot. It was a joke. And a funny one at that.

  23. 23

    Ok I understand that it was a joke but it wasn't a tastefull one. He should know that people are always gonna be sensitive about that. It just makes him look immature and petty, especially since it was directed at a white woman again. It doesn't seem like he learned his lesson from last time. I don't find it funny.

  24. 24

    Kanye is an asshole. And will always be an asshole. I don't believe for one second that he was joking.

  25. 25

    i seen it all happen it wasn't that serious . i didn't know tabloid pick up crap like this…….

  26. 26

    To Perez and all the other idiots:
    Yes, Kanye is a huge jackass and thinks highly of himself but it's very obvious that it's a joke. So get your heads out of your ass and get over it. Taylor isnt crying, it helped her career if anything. And Queen Britney and her team got it and respond with a joke.

  27. 27

    Umm… it was funny. Like hilarious, so chill out.

  28. 28

    Have you noticed Perez stopped the "click here to see the end of the story" scam?

  29. 29

    you can clearly tell it wass a joke. i chuckled the first time i read it..that whole "imma let you finish" thing has been an on going joke for a year now. no one got hurt, so why try to make it into something its not?

  30. 30

    It is so obvious that he was joking. You are so dumb. You are really dumb, for real.

  31. 31

    Looks like some people need to go check out immaletyoufinish.com and get a clue!

  32. 32

    H.A.M sucked, Jigga's tracks were much better before Kanye brought him down :(

  33. 33

    if there's nothing legitimate to report then stop stirring trouble. it was extremely obvious he was making fun of himself. get over it and find something better to do

  34. 34

    Have some of you people never googled I'mma Let You Finish (kanyegate.tumblr.com)? Kanye is obviously joking fools! He was playing around with the Taylor thing.

  35. 35

    He was obviously joking, no need to make a bog deal out of it! Ugh!

  36. 36

    He's an ass. He is obviously threatened by young girls and that is just weird!!!

  37. 37

    People just have so much hate buried in their hearts, get rid of it it's unhealthy its been over a year since the whole VMA hoopla, get over it! And it was pretty obvious he was joking, asshole!

  38. 38

    That was actually pretty hilarious.

  39. 39

    Will you please learn how to proof read?

  40. 40

    You're too political and not even fun or funny anymore. And you are too uptight! LOL does mean a joke. Like Tracy Morgan said about gay guyss….If you can take a Dick, you can take a JOKE!!!

  41. 41

    Re: curiousred – Yeah, what was up with that stupid "click here" crap???

  42. 42

    Really Perez some of the BS you comment about and put lol at the end. Really you are so full of shit.

  43. 43

    Obviously a joke, and a pretty funny one. It's good he can laugh at himself after being drug through the mud over that.

  44. 44

    he just mad that britney spears beat him mr. I am the greatest artist of all time and yet britney spears beats him on itunes not so amazing as you think you are kanye. I know kanye is not the type too joke around he only doing that too make himself feel better. he knows he can't compete with britney spears on who gets more publicity on. kanye the best one first place and clearly your not number 1 on itunes so britney spears new single is better than yours.

  45. 45

    Britney has some loyal fans, so he should have made the joke elsewhere. I can tell he was joking, but you don't want to piss off Britney fans :)

  46. 46

    kanye is such a jealous douche

  47. emmz says – reply to this


    you are so fucking dumb. it was a joke. this really pisses me off that you are making a story out of this. just FYI, i am not reading your site anymore based on this. last straw. i wont be missing much because half of everything i read on here is days late of common knowledge. laters.

  48. 48

    HOLD IT AGAINST ME!!!!!!!!!!!

  49. 49

    I don't care if it was a joke, he is an ass, all the things he says or do are stupid and he is rude to everyone he always think he is the best in everything, well at least you are the best idiot

  50. 50

    Ok hold it against me but I think he was joking.

  51. 51




  52. 52

    Did Avril Lavigne write the song?

  53. 53


  54. 54

    The first post was clearly a dumb joke. The second, not so much. Dishes it, but he can't take it. (Obligatory LOL.)

  55. 55

    Dear lord, its not that big of a deal for you to post this and be all like omg LOL doesnt make it acceptable. Obviously he was joking. I bet Britney even laughed. Youre turning things into big deals when theyre not! Stop trying to looove Britney, coz we all know who you love the most -.-

  56. 56

    Yeah, Mario. Because everyone knows that you're the expert on what is appropriate to say about other people. *eyeroll*

    You're a fuckhead.

  57. 57

    Who is Gumbo Jackson?

  58. 58

    KANYE WAS JUST MAKING FUN OF HIMSELF! he didn't mean anything by it. ughh people are just trying to make a "story" out of nothing.

  59. 59

    this was OBVIOUSLY a joke. it was almost word for word what he said to taylor swift. anyone who took that seriously is either not intelligent enough to understand humor, or must have a miserable personality. I laughed when i saw his tweet and appreciated that he was finally ready to joke about the situation.

    I think perez should be embarrassed for: 1. not getting the joke and 2. making yet another celeb feel guilty after having done nothing wrong.

  60. 60

    i hope britney and her manager actually took that as a joke, and perez is just starting drama. because that was nice of kanye actually giving her a shoutout, and playin on the incident.

  61. 61

    Kanye SHOULD be old enough to know that would spark some controversy and that he should have just NOT have said it.

  62. 62

    It was a joke.Stop trying to make drama when there is none.Perez you are hate monger!

  63. 63

    Yeah because what he said was oh so terrible. Puhlease. It was a freakin joke and it was actually very funny. You along with Britney's "camp" are making a big deal out of a freakin joke.

  64. 64

    oh jesus, he was making fun of himself. get a sense of humor. ugh

  65. 65


  66. 66

    this is so clearly a joke, people need to chill :/

  67. 67

    for someone that puts STARS when they mean STARTS im not surprised that you didnt understand that this was a joke

  68. 68

    that was actually a really funny comment, showing kanye can laugh about his mistakes and doesnt take himself as serious

  69. 69

    Team Britney!!!!

  70. 70

    Re: adg100
    Some of us "naive fucks" just see it for what it really is: a joke. Looks like you're the one who needs to lighten up! It's not THAT serious.

  71. 71

    im like kayne i never shut up and i always get in trouble by stuc up people i dont think britney deserves number one…as much as i like her i think someone with real musical talent deserves it so yes let the loudmouth be number one.

    kayne dont ever shut up…

  72. 72

    The people who are truly pathetic are the ones who think Kanye West is brilliant or writes actual "music". Sampling other people's riffs while throwing in raps and betas is not actually songwriting.

  73. 73

    He was CLEARLY poking fun at himself! What, Perez? You became a "sassy" blogger and lost your sense of humor??

  74. 74

    Re: litnight – You are an idiot.

  75. 75

    Re: adg100 – It was a joke…YOU are the idiot.

  76. 76

    Re: BeeLahhve – That's bullshit. If anything, it shows that he's matured some in the last year.

  77. 77

    kayne is a peice of shit ,period

  78. 78

    Re: curiousred – Yes I noticed, and I'm happy.

  79. 79

    but yhea, this was a joke, stupid one, but still a joke!

  80. 80

    It is good that he can joke about the incident. Everyone else on the planet does, why can't he?

  81. 81

    Come on everybody makes those Kanye jokes, is not allowed to himself?

  82. 82

    yes he was prob joking but im just sick of his mouth

  83. 83

    come on it was funny…what happened to a friendly rivalry…im a brit and kanye fan and i didn't take offense…because he's gone overboard with his opinions before doen't mean he can't comment on anyone in the music industry ever….wish he would produce a song for brit; it be HOT!

  84. 84

    Perez, STFU. It was OBVIOUS to me it was a joke. AND it was funny. I

  85. 85

    You could tell he was joking w/o the LOL. It was a hysterical comment and way to play on his 'boo boo'

  86. 86

    it was pretty obvious it was a joke youd have to be retarded to think otherwise and a damn funny one at that! the 'apology' and her managers response were unnecessary

  87. 87

    Kanye is an immature, self-absorbed, self-loving, egotistical baby but it was just a joke and yes, that joke has been dragged on for ages but it was still funny. Of course he wanted the #1 spot but he has no one else to blame other than the person that suggested that the release date was gonna be close to Britney's.

  88. 88

    I think Kayne is racist against young, white women! Kayne, get over yourself…you ain't all that!

  89. 89

    He was joking but at the same time he wanted attention for his new single that hadnt started to chart yet.

  90. 90

    and HAM all the way!

  91. 91

    Re: Canadianfoxfan – hes #2 on itunes in america

  92. 92

    It was a joke. Lmao. Funny too XDD

  93. 93

    I find it very interesting that everyone concentrated on the stirring up trouble part of this story, and overlooked that Perez actually pulled a "Kanye" by saying "P.S. Adding LOL at the end of a statement does not automatically make what you said before that acceptable." Now what needs to happen is for Perez to actually acknowledge that it adding LOL after everything REALLY doesnt make it right!!!

  94. 94


  95. 95

    He was clearly joking, how is that not completely obvious. I hope you get punched in the face again for being so fucking stupid.

  96. 96

    was he suppose to tweet with a pic of him smiling, or spend the next line..saying it was a joke and to chill…"LOL" is pretty much the only way someone can relay emotion thru text..duh. he was just joking ppl

  97. 97

    He just put LOL at the end of it to save his ass and say it was a joke. He's got a big ass ego and after he posted it he was probably like "oh shit… I'm going to start another Taylor Swift fued" so he changed it. Whatever, I think even he saw it coming that Britney's song was going to beat out his.

  98. 98

    If you hate Perez so much that your name is Die Perez, etc.. why do you have an account to post and are reading the site and posting?? Doesnt really make much sense to me. Get a life

  99. 99

    kanye & jay-z all the way.

  100. 100

    "P.S. Adding LOL at the end of a statement does not automatically make what you said before that acceptable."

    Kimda like how you adding "just sayin'" on the end of things does not automatically make you less of a douchebag.
