Kanye West, Usher, Mary J. Blige, Nelly & Diddy Make Billboard’s All-Time Top Hot 100 Songs List

It mostly started back in 2009 when Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swifts award speech to tell her in front of the world, Im happy for you and Imma let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best music videos of all time. The moment spawned countless memes and inadvertently launched Taylor Swift into the spotlight even more. Of course, that was just the beginning of President Obamas opinion of Kanye West, who he called a talented jackass. Kim Kardashian wasnt much better, being one of the stars of the reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians. She and her sisters became notorious for getting in squabbles in front of the entire world, even dragging their entire family into the spotlight. By the time the show was famous, Ozzy Osbourne and his family no longer looked so bad. This year, Kanye West is back even worse than ever, slamming President Obama in his song Suit And Tie and then ranting publicly about Taylor Swift, as previously reported by The Inquisitr .
