The VMA's, Taylor Swift and the Village Idiot

Did anyone watch the VMA Awards last night?

It has to be said, Kanye West is an obnoxious idiot. A very talented idiot, but no doubt an idiot! I thought it was a joke when Kanye got on the MTV Video Music Awards stage next to Taylor Swift right in the middle of her acceptance speech for Best Female Video. It was the first VMA for the 19-year-old country singer, who (thanks to her down to earth personality and catchy tunes) has also become a pop sensation. My kids love her!

Taylor was so surprised and excited saying it was her dream to win a moon man one day. Well, as Taylor continued, Kanye interrupted, saying he thought Beyonce's "Single Ladies" video should have won the award. I was shocked! I couldn’t stop thinking “Are you Serious?”
The look on that poor girl’s face, she was humiliated. I felt humiliated for her. To be quite honest, I didn’t expect Taylor to win the award and I can definitely appreciate Kanye’s opinion but to jump on the stage and completely ruin her moment was classless and disrespectful.

She’s just a young girl! Who does this college drop-out think he is?!! Is our society that screwed up that we will continue to support celebrities no matter what they do? I mean, come on…the guy showed up to the awards show with a bottle of Hennessy in hand!

This morning I got online and I just knew it was bound to be the talk of the day and I was happy to see that Pink tweeted her thoughts about it. She said: "Kanye West is the biggest piece of shit on earth. Quote me. My heart goes out to Taylor Swift. She is a sweet and talented girl, and deserved her moment. She should know we all love her." I couldn’t have said it better myself, Pink.

Taylor performed shortly after that all went down and you know I have to give it to her; she handled it gracefully. I was glad to see that the audience booed Kanye throughout the night whenever his name was mentioned. It was well deserved.

I was also glad that Beyonce gave Taylor the moment she deserved when she went on to accept her award for Best Video. Beyonce called her back on stage. "Wow, this is amazing," Beyonce said when receiving her award. "I remember being 17-years-old and up for my first MTV award with Destiny's Child. It was one of the most exciting moments in my life. So, I'd like for Taylor to come out and have her moment."
Good for her!

I believe MTV should have thrown Kanye’s ass out of the auditorium. Come on, had that been any regular Joe, they would have been kicked out and probably thrown in jail. He should not have been treated any differently. Thanks to his disgraceful behavior and arrogance…I will no longer support his music. Did his actions at the VMA’s change your perception of him?

  1. They DID throw him out and NO, it didn't change what I thought of him. I already thought he was an asshole. Don't use your mother's death as an excuse to act like an ass, that's just distasteful.
