Kanye West Is Persona Non Grata At George Clooney’s Haiti Telethon

Everyone’s least-favorite big mouth is one celeb that wasn’t invited to take part in the charity event of the year. Hm…can’t say we really wonder why!

Kanye, you might want to stop checking your inbox (mailboxes are so last year) because you are NOT going to find an invite to George Clooney’s uber-event – a Haiti telethon – on Jan. 22. You’re not on the list, dude! Your on-stage antics at this year’s VMA’s – you know, the moment when you publicly dissed America’s Sweetheart Taylor Swift and declared Beyonce should have won instead? – pretty much secured your reputation as a loose cannon.

It’s unfortunate that no one trusts you enough to let you take the stage again, because literally the crème de la crème of A-Listers will be manning the phones come Friday. Robert Pattinson, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Madonna, Jay-Z, Bono, Justin Timberlake are all fielding phone calls for charity. Heck, even Brad Pitt and Jen Aniston are willing to let bygones be bygones and share a room for this thing!

There are so many celebrities involved, but you’re not among them, Ye. Why? “After what he said on the Katrina telethon and the way he behaved at the MTV Video Music Awards, everyone agrees it’s just best that he does not participate,” a producer close to the program told PopEater.

Now just what would give them that idea? Well, how much time do you have? The music mogul’s list of offenses begin with another telethon, this one for Katrina in 2005. While standing next to a mortified Mike Myers, Kanye, 32, criticized President Bush for his delayed reaction to rescuing Gulf Coast survivors.

Or what about the FIRST time Kanye bum-rushed an MTV stage during the 2006 European Music Awards in Copenhagen, when he complained that his video for Touch The Sky should have won because it cost a million dollars?

We’ve already reminded you about his snafu with Taylor Swift – when Kanye single-handedly made the country cutie look like he had crushed a million puppies and then handed them back to her. “Kayne has to make everything about himself. He will do anything to steal the spotlight and, well, this night it’s just not about him,” adds PopEater’s source.

Ouch! Well, Ye, looks like you need to keep licking your wounds for now, but don’t forget to make a donation! That’s the best way to make it about everyone else but you! For once…
