Estelle Defends Kanye West’s Cockiness

Do you think Kanye is cocky? If you don’t you are not alone but if you do R&B singer Estelle, who featured the rap star on her “American Boy” hit, has a few words for you. “People say what they say about his ego, but he’s very sure of himself and I think that’s a great way to be,” she told E! News at Belvedere’s dinner party at Dakota, which was held in her honor. “I think more people should follow him, and be more cocky and more proud of their work.” As far as Kanye reneging on his stand off with MTV, Estelle says she wasn’t surprised by his decision to close the VMA’s tonight. “I’m sure it was all planned,” she said. “I think people want to see what he’ll bring after all of that and I think they’re going to be pleasantly surprised and happy with it.” The VMAs air tonight at 9 pm ET/PT.
