Kanye West Gets 'Good Guy' Cosign From Justin Bieber

Nobody will accuse Kanye West of being the most likable of major music stars, with his much publicized outbursts in the media and abroad enabling many to label the Chicago superstar of having an ego the size of the Sears Tower. However, it appears that Mr. West has one fellow megastar buddy who happens to think he’s not as bad as he seems.

Teen heartthrob Justin Bieber defended his friend and past collaborator in an interview with XXL in the magazine's July/August issue, and Biebs gave ‘Ye the ultimate cosign.

“I got to be in the studio with him and work with him and see how he works and talk to him and talk to him as a friend, and not like someone [in] business,” said Bieber. “He’s not really an a--hole like everyone makes him out to be. I mean, he can, he can do bad things, but he’s really generally a good guy.” Bieber continued with, ““He can make bad decisions, you know, as well as everyone can but generally I think he is a good guy” – further cementing his earlier words succinctly.

If anyone knows how Kanye gets down, it would be the 17-year old Canadian sensation. Having worked alongside Kanye on a remix of “Runaway Love” and enjoying the distinction of being Kayne’s first Twitter follow, young Justin has had plenty of face time with ‘Ye to speak as frankly as he does about his pal.

After his singing career is done, Justin Bieber could perhaps begin a public relations firm for misunderstood superstars.
