Cocky rap star Kanye West is calling for a revised edition of ‘The Bible’ because he thinks he should be a character in it. West feels sure he’d be “a griot’ (West African storyteller) in a modern Bible. He says, “I bring up historical subjects in a way that makes kids want to learn about them. I’m an inspirational speaker. I changed the sound of music more than one time, for all those reasons, I’d be a part of the Bible. I’m definitely in the history books already.

Cruise did his usual "My psyche is so unformed I have to work really hard to act like a regular person" thing, yelling appreciative statements about the music from cue cards that his publicist thoughtfully held just off camera.
"Damn," said a very impressed Cruise..."Great song!" Tom Cruise said aloud while the two G.O.O.D. Music teammates played..."Wow!" Cruise yelled when "Heard 'Em Say" came to an end...(West) then introduced Cruise, who was a little shy but smiled and waved to everyone when the spotlight and camera-phone flashes hit him. Kanye closed with another bread-and-butter hit, "Jesus Walks," leaving Tom to say "un-f---ing-believable!" as he filed out with everyone else.
