So this is all you need to know about the VMA's this year... Kanye West is truly an idiot!!!
In case you missed the main event heres a short summary: Taylor Swift had just won an award for Best Female Video and as she was giving her thanks, Kanye West jumps up on stage grabs the mic from Taylor and says something to the effect that Beyonce, who was one of the other nominees for the category, had one of the best videos of all time.
Heres an apology taken from Kanyes Blog:
"I'M SOOOOO SORRY TO TAYLOR SWIFT AND HER FANS AND HER MOM. I SPOKE TO HER MOTHER RIGHT AFTER AND SHE SAID THE SAME THING MY MOTHER WOULDâ€™VE SAID. SHE IS VERY TALENTED! I LIKE THE LYRICS ABOUT BEING A CHEERLEADER AND SHE'S IN THE BLEACHERS! ........ I'M IN THE WRONG FOR GOING ON STAGE AND TAKING AWAY FROM HER MOMENT!........ BEYONCE'S VIDEO WAS THE BEST OF THIS DECADE!!!! IM SORRY TO MY FANS IF I LET YOU GUYS DOWN!!!! I'M SORRY TO MY FRIENDS AT MTV. I WILL APOLOGIZE TO TAYLOR 2MRW. WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD!!!! EVERYBODY WANNA BOOOOO ME BUT I'M A FAN OF REAL POP CULTURE!!! NO DISRESPECT BUT WE WATCHIN' THE SHOW AT THE CRIB RIGHT NOW CAUSE ... WELL YOU KNOW!!!! I'M STILL HAPPY FOR TAYLOR!!!! BOOOYAAAWWWW!!!! YOU ARE VERY VERY TALENTED!!! I GAVE MY AWARDS TO OUTKAST WHEN THEY DESERVED IT OVER ME... THAT'S WHAT IT IS!!!!!!! I'M NOT CRAZY YALL, I'M JUST REAL. SORRY FOR THAT!!! I REALLY FEEL BAD FOR TAYLOR AND I'M SINCERELY SORRY!!! MUCH RESPECT!!!!!"
Add another notch in the idiot stick for Kanye. On a night that was pre-empted with a tribute to Micheal Jackson and framed around love and unity, Kanye reminded us all how far we really are from a colorless world. There was such a great message we could all learn from the tragedy that has become Micheal Jackson and in 10 seconds it was lost by the lunacy of an impetuous and thoughtless jerk.
Boos for Kanye and cheers for Taylor persisted through the night and I couldnt help but cringe at home from the tension in the audience. I know race was not directly injected this time but I cant help feel that Kanye did. Its this type of close mindedness that is the catalyst for many of our problems today. So what if you feel like Beyonce did have the best video respect the process and especially the winner Taylor who had nothing to do with the voting. Poor girl. No class Kanye. If you are so smart try thinking before acting next time.
I get Kanye has a lot to say and that fine, but there is an appropiate time and place. Didnt he learn anything from Congressman Joe Wilson after blurting out "You Lie!", during President Obama's speech.
On a lighter note what about Lady Gaga. Im scared yet intrigued. Not sure if she is brilliant or crazy but I think I like her.
We'll talk about Kanye, but I think I have to review the big video awards as a whole. But you better believe Kanye had something to do with the rating. I'd probably go negative if it weren't for the fact that Kanye wasn't the whole VMAs... even though he probably thinks it should be. Aside from that, however, there was a lively show with good performances but the best moments were actually in the beginning when they gave a tribute to Michael Jackson, and when Beyonce won video … more
