The VMA's '09: The Kanye moment


I laughed my arse off when I saw this. But I won't let me finding this more than a tad funny excuse Kanye for being an arsehole and humiliating Taylor how he did. I agree that "Single ladies (Put a ring on it)" was video of the year, and that even P!nk's video that was in the same category was better than Taylor's. But there's a time, a place and better ways to go about for voicing your opinions on award outcomes. And interrupting somebody else's win is not the way to do that. If Kanye wanted to put his feelings on blast on his blog, or in a record - then he has every right. But to take Taylor's moment away from her was just straight up disrespectful. If he had a daughter win an award and some n***a snatched a microphone off of her to belittle her win, he'd have some words to say: I'm sure. Rest assured, there are many people out there who don't agree Kanye West's shit is as hot as he thinks it is. But they don't jump on stage, upstage his shit and demean it in his face. Dude's a arsehole, but we knew that already. He's like a child with all these stupid hissy fits he throws.

But not only was he humiliate Taylor and make himself look a complete idiot, but he even made Beyoncé look bad. I'm not talking crazy when I say I bet people somehow blamed Beyoncé for this shit, even though she didn't have a damn thing to do with it.

Thankfully, not everybody is an arse like Kanye. Beyoncé gracefully allowed Taylor to have her moment to take in her win, free of Kanye induced drama.


Say what you will about the Beyondroid, you can't take away the fact that she was incredibly gracious for giving Taylor back her spotlight. She did a great thing and was humble. She even sounded a little emotional (yes, I was shocked too. The Beyondroid has emotion people!) as she introduced Taylor. Taylor and Beyoncé both came out of this winners in every sense of the word. Even Kanye kinda did in a twisted way. You can't pay for this kind of publicity. It helps fuel how much of an egotistical idiot he really is and has everybody talking about him in what is a moment that will get re-run on 'MTV's memorable award show moments' years from now.

If you listen carefully, you can hear cash register ringing up a couple hundred sales of I am... Sasha Fierce and Fearless, with the faint sounds of people knocking copies of 808s & heartbreak off of the shelf and onto the floor.

  1. That was mean, harsh and wrong. He looked more like a drunken fool and I respected him and his music.

    He should be ashamed of himself for doing that.
