C'mon people— does it really matter how this woman died? Kanye LOST HIS MOTHER suddenly and tragically. She was an integral part of his life, from being his manager and business partner as well as the one who inspired him to follow his dreams as a parent. Not to mention that she was an educated woman working in a tough industry. So what if she wanted cosmetic surgery?!?! That's not the important fact right now.

I would think that folks would be a bit more respectful of the fact that while his mother is gone and he must be suffering, people are making jokes and gossiping about her, without all of the facts being in yet... so awful and mean spirited.

Man, I can't imagine what he's going thru— any of us would hate to be under the glare of the media while grieving for a loved one, so I hope that media outlets cut Kanye some slack and let him be.
