A 28-year-old woman who had her name legally changed from Linda Resa to Kanye West (because she loves rapper Kanye West so damn much) has pleaded guilty to throwing an amplifier through an Office Depot window in Times Square. She was sentenced to community service for third degree criminal mischief, reports the New York Daily News.

Ms. West, who also has "KANYE" tattooed across her a$$, is an aspiring singer who busks on the corner of 41st Street and 7th Avenue in Manhattan (just nine blocks away from the Fuse office). According to the Daily News, Ms. West "said she had lost her cool because her cheap amp charger fizzed out during her opening number — a cover of 'Videophone' by Beyonce and Lady Gaga. Wearing a large afro wig, West barely got past the line 'Shawty, what yo name is?' when it died."

West said, "I'm normally very sweet. I have a little bit of an anger problem. I threw the speaker and it hit the window. You know I didn't see the window there because there were cops right there."

"I shouldn't have thrown the speaker," Ms. West added.

Was West's sentencing fair? Tell us what you think in the comments.
