AceShowbiz - Kanye West was "hurt" Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles didn't attend his 2014 wedding. The "99 Problems" hitmaker and Beyonce were noticeably absent from the rapper and Kim Kardashian's big day in Italy, and Kanye admits he was irked his pal couldn't make the trip - and he made his feelings clear during one of his troubled concerts, just days before he canceled his "Saint Pablo Tour" and was hospitalized for a mental evaluation in late November, 2016, when he blasted his mentor and his wife.
West reveals he and Jay-Z are in a better place now, but he'll always be upset the rap mogul skipped his special day. "We're good (now)," he tells U.S. radio host Charlamagne Tha God in a lengthy new interview. "We're texting each other. It's positive energy. I haven't seen him, but I can feel him... I was hurt about (him and Beyonce) not coming to the wedding. I understand I was going through some things, but if it's family, you're not going to miss a wedding. I'm not using this interview to put out any negative things, but I gotta state my truth. I'm past it, but at the time I was hurt."
Kanye also reveals he was shocked when former U.S. President Barack Obama called him a "jacka**" after he invaded the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2009 to protest Taylor Swift's first-ever win. "You know, he never called me to apologize," Kanye says. "The same person that sat down with me and my mom, I think should've communicated to me directly... I just think that we were in a period where he had so much stuff to deal with, he couldn't deal with a wildcard like me. I think that's too unpredictable. Someone that wasn't being controlled by strategy and thoughts, but someone who's acting on feelings."
"I'm your favorite artist," he adds. "You play 'Touch the Sky' at your inauguration, and now, all a sudden, Kendrick Lamar and Jay and all the people you invite to the White House, like, now these (are) your favorite rappers?"
