West Lockdown

Kanye West has some explaining to do to his fans. Then again, he was arrested for tackling a photographer - if every celebrity was booked for that, there would be no entertainment industry!

West LockdownWe love the Grammy winner as much you, and everyone's entitled to a slip up we suppose, but again?

West was recentl yarrested in London after a scuffle with a photographer!

Like most celebs turning to their blog for their cause (and by that we mean their fans), he dismisses the fact it was a bit over the line (and by that we mean over the top).

He blogs,

"I put my hand up to the camera in self-defense! I didn't assault him but merely [put] my hand up to cover his lens. My security yelled, 'Get the camera off him.' I guess in all the commotion, the camera scraped his nose."

Do you believe his response? Let us know. Something tells me, Kanye West also has a bridge in Brooklyn for sale.
