Rihanna & Kanye West // Z100 Jingle Ball 2008 (backstage)

Kanye West recently provided his take on this crazy situation between Chris Brown and Rihanna, stating that he sees her as a little sister adding that she has the potential to be the greatest artist of all time.

“I don’t want to speak too much on it, but I was completely devastated by the concept of what I heard,” West, 31, told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS FM radio show Tuesday morning. “[Rihanna] has the potential to be, you know, the greatest artist of all time and, in that sense, I feel like [she is] my baby sis,” added West. “I would do any and everything to help her in any situation.”

West, who has previously toured with Rihanna, said he preferred not to get into specifics about whether he’s spoken to her personally but labeled the situation “so devastating.”

“I feel like, just as a person, I don’t care how famous she is or even if she just worked at McDonald’s, that should never happen. It should never come to that, to that place.”


We love Rihanna too but … greatest artist of all time? Uhm … no comment.
