Joe Jackson wants Kanye ‘blackballed’

September 16th, 2009 // 60 Comments

Somehow I missed this little item of hilarity: Joe Jackson apparently issued a statement to TMZ encouraging the entertainment industry to blackball Kanye West for interrupting Taylor Swift’s VMA acceptance speech:

“I don’t know what he was doing, he jumped up on stage and snatched that microphone out of that poor girl’s hand. They should blackball him out of show business for that. He just leapt up there, that was bad.
I had just gotten through speaking to him, he was introducing me to his girlfriend, and then three minutes later he jumped up on stage. And people booed Kanye all night.”

Okay, granted what Kanye did was stupidly obnoxious and the byproduct of an unchecked ego drowned in cognac, but not exactly a reason to completely shun him from the music industry. Especially at the request of Joe Jackson who I have five words for: “Jesus Juice” and “Little boy’s penises.” I’ve said my piece.

  1. the only thin worse than kanye is whoever write for this site

    your jokes are never funny. do you even know what blackballed means? cause its the only form of the word you used after jackson said it.

  2. Damn, fish! Could your head be any further up Kayne’s ass? I mean, give his nut sack a rest, while you?

  3. Peter Pumpkin Eater

    I’m gonna have to agree with 1 & 2…

    Kanye’s been pulling shit like this long enough and he should be blackballed.

  4. WTF?

    @2: Alex, what the fuck are you talking about? He’s been trashing Kanye all week. Oh, wait, you’re just trying to spam his site by acting cool and edgy. My bad. And I don’t even know what the fuck #1 is talking about. Michael fan?

  5. Crusty

    The market will play a role in what punishment Kayne receives. Different genre and reasoning but the Dixie Chicks opened their mouths one too many time, spouted off in a way that alienated their fan base, and country radio essentially banned them for about 2 years. Those girls never fully recovered their place in the market – so the notion that free speech is only as free and the subsequent consequences allow will apply here as well.

    First, love the name. What better way to convey your feelings that putting your feelings as your name. Touche.

    However, to answer your question, his trashing is what I’m used to, so consider me baffled as to why Fish is all of the sudden, defending him. I don’t spam and yes, I am cool and edgy and full of quips. You are not bad, at all.

    #1 is simply stating that Fish is not using blackballed in the context that Joe Jackson is putting it in. To be honest, Kanye’s business, as of late, is blackballing himself. It seems to be the only way for him to stay tangible.

    Great press for Hennessy…

    aka Luis Vuiton who make his lame ass shoes in some 3rd world country.

  8. He should definitely not be shunned from the music industry based on that stunt alone.
    He should be shunned because he sucks, period.

  9. #7

    I thought the same thing, at first. I bet in Kayne’s mind, he was thinking that he could do some kind of ghetto plug of it, then become some kind of poster boy for Hennessy. However, I’m sure they got a good laugh out of his attempt and then told him that Hennessy doesn’t like black people and promptly nixed the whole conversation.

    I mean, sweatshop purses and actual good, high-quality cognac that has been around for a long time are apples and oranges.

  10. Nikki

    Well for years I’ve wanted to see Joe Jackson “black balled.” But I guess we put our dreams away, right. Yikes Joe. Go away.

  11. WTF?

    @7 He backhandedly defended Kanye to make a crack at the irony of Joe Jackson calling out someone’s shit in the music industry. That seems like classic Fish, but to each his own.

  12. Danklin24

    piece or peace?

  13. stupidass

    you heard the man, america! he looks down on abnormal behavior.

  14. missywissy

    Holy Moses! It’s a cold day in hell, because I agree with Joe Jackson. The guy should just be cut loose, or only invited to parties at McDonald’s.

    Fish, thanks for reminding us all about the real MJ. The dude is being hailed as a hero and that’s been kind of bugging me being he was actually a really fucked up guy that should have been in jail for doing what he did, and yes I know the jury never convicted him, but look at all the interviews they gave after and they said they should have. Read the deposition on The Smoking Gun of the boy that said MJ cried when the boy didn’t want MJ to put his tongue in his ear. These boys can describe EXACTLY MJ’s penis. My own kids don’t even know what their dad’s looks like, how the heck can these accusers know that his leans to the left and has a scar (figuratively). We can’t make this guy into a hero. He was sick, and I don’t care about his childhood. Why did these boys have to pay the price and then be publically ridiculed for it? okay I’m done.

  15. hacksaw

    Kayne hates white people.

  16. #11

    I would like to have thought the same. However, remember the post about Fish’s post regarding Obama calling Kanye a jackass? NASCAR dads’ heads exploding because of nuance? That’s the witty reply of Fish? Redirecting the whole irony of the situation to what a bunch of rednecks think about it?

    Definitely to each his own, and Fish needs to get his head out of Kanye’s ass.

  17. 2009 BDITU Award

    I hereby nominate Kanye West for the 2009 Biggest Douche in the Universe Award.

  18. WTF?

    @16: Oh, I get it now. So unless Fish is constantly insulting Kanye ad nauseum he has his head up his ass. Obviously you missed all the VMA posts kicking Kanye in the nuts, but none of them must’ve chapped your conservative ass like yesterday’s Obama so now you’re going to bitch about it. I see where you’re coming from, Capt. Whitey McBlogCritic.

  19. WTF?

    And WTF is with the comments? It erased that one like five times. I’m defending you Fish and your comments are shanking me. SHANKING ME IN THE ASS.

  20. See Alice

    NEWSFLASH ! Kanye West hates white people !

  21. Danklin24

    #1 the question is, do you know what blackballed means? Because what you said doesnt make any fucking sense. Fish used the word correctly.

  22. idiot

  24. annoyed

    This shit is getting to retarded. How is this getting as much attention if not more than Chris Browns beating Rhianna? Let it fucking go people, its an award show, let alone MTV. No body fucking cares, Taylor Swift doesn’t even care anymore. if anything now more people like her because of Kanye’s actions and Kanye is still hated like he always is.

    I find it funny how obscure “celebrities” are all chiming in because they saw an opportunity to be relevant again, John Stamos? REALLY! Twitter needs to be bombed and go away for good.

    What Kanye did was stupid and rude, he realizes it and Taylor Swift has accepted his apologies. just wipe your asses of it and stop talking about it like it has anything to concern you at all. It even more retarded that Obama has his 2 cents to add in, we elected you to fix our country, not watch the fucking VMA’s in the white house!

    And Joe Jackson should not even be allowed to talk, EVER! The guys a fake and a child molester and the biggest attention whore of them all. i really fucking hate that guy

  25. Zane

    Aww, boohoo. It’s not the end of the world. Swift got her moment at the end of the show. Nobody died.

    Don’t get your panties in a bunch, you bunch of crybabies.

  26. Randal(l)

    I think we all missed what Joe really meant. Namely, that he wants to rub his black balls on Kanye. Oddly enough, Kanye is less than half of Joe’s age. It must have been Genetic

  27. Anon

    @ #12: thank you. i was reading the comments to see how long it took someone to mention that.

    @ Superficial writer: you need an editor – badly. i could be that editor. email me.

  28. commie liar

    That’s racist what Joe Jackson said. Seriously, “blackball” what century are we in?

  29. See Alice

    Wonder if Taylor was scared that he was going to pull an OJ right there on that stage ?

  30. Darth

    Kanye West should be ballgagged by a black ball.

  31. Nero

    A set of saggy black balls should be lowered down Kanye West’s throat by someone.Any suggestions?

  32. what happened

    F.Y.I., about that whole deal w/ Obama making the “jackass” comment, I heard that he didn’t really issue that as a statement or anything like that. He might have not even said it. It was something like, some news correspondence overheard something thru one of those ear phones that sounded like Obama saying Kanye’s a jackass, and then decided to flash it all over the news as if it was a story. And I’ll bet that’s what happened. It’s like how Leeann Rimes and that dude she left her husband for were outed by one of those shows like ET or something b/c they met outside and then went to eat, and the show got hold of the shitty-quality video. Obviously, sites like this/shows like that want to make stories that’ll sell even if it ruins a life b/c it means $$$ and that’s what they run on. It’s shitty but it’s true… Anyway, Kanye definitely shouldn’t have done what he did. It was ridiculously ignorant, and it embarrassed Taylor so he should definitely have to deal w/ some consequences and everybody thinking he’s a dick. But I don’t think he should be blackballed either. Maybe he was drunk, which isn’t really an excuse, but everybody knows he just starts doin/sayin crazy shit at random moments that make people uncomfortable and piss them off. But he knows he’s a dick for it, and he almost cried on Leno b/c he knew what a dick-move it was. Plus, it’s not like he was fighting pitbulls and then drowning/electrocuting/shooting them, which apparently is still cool for the NFL, and he still hasn’t hit a chick, which is good, so THIS particular incident doesn’t really seem like something he should lose his livelihood for. Taylor’ll forgive him. Maybe they’ll do a duet!

  34. Dude of Dudes

    Kanye had this to say about your site:

    http://kanyelicio.us/http://thesuperficial.com

  35. This is a site that makes references to popular culture, many times in a ironic or sarcastic manner. Those concepts seem beyond the grasp of some posters.

    And #17 rough daddy has that award locked up in perpetuity.

  36. Everybody needs a little Jesus Juice sometimes.

  37. Joe Jackson wants Kanye blackballed LOLOL thats freaking funny. Kanye is most likely ill in the head and Joe Jackson is a douchebag. Sounds like they are made for each other.

  38. Joe Jackson is only good at exploiting/beating his own children. Sorry Joe, please die soon.

  39. missywissy

    to 32 go to Perez Hilton’s website. They have the recording of Obama calling kanye a jackass.

  40. Cartman

    Joe is right.

    Kanye is a cunt and should be blackballed from the entertainment industry.

  41. jEnsmo

    Michael Jackson was aquitted…although he did pay people off and I still think he was guilty. BUT, Kanye has done this, repeatedely. If you’re going to act like he does, he does not deserve anything in the music industry and should be 100% shunned (along with R Kelly).

  42. steve clark

    Kanye: a no talent joke!

  43. Colombo

    I think you’ll find that he already is

  44. In this website i have got information related to the different media through which one can promote their product.

  45. Jammy

    So, what does this involve? Putting Kanye’s balls in some kind of tanning device to darken ‘em up? Or is Joe simply conjecturing on Kanye’s physical state? Y’know, like “He should be a 34″ waist” or “he should be a 7 and a half hat” OR “he should be black balled”…..

  46. Steve Riker

    Maybe Kayne turned down Joes offer to be part of the new Jackson 3?
    He sucks permanently and I cant understand why suck a prick is even famous – its thanks to media suck-up rags like rolling stone and the cult of celebrity – blackball his ass I say, him and the dixie chicks need to be put in the oblvivion of medocrity and never mentioned again along with Hieidi and Spencer and all the other gtalenless reality doofs

  47. ds

    Um, since he is black, is he not already technically black balled?
