This will NOT be something we normally cover on the site. I’m generally not going to waste your time with mainstream gossip, but I feel this should be brought to everyone’s attention, even though you’ve probably already heard by now.
Last night at the VMA’s Taylor Swift won “Best Female Video” over Beyonce. Less than 10 seconds into her speech, Kayne West jumps on stage and steals the mic declaring that Beyonce had “One of the best videos of all time.” Talk about being a douche, stealing the spotlight from this 19 year old kid as she wins her first moon man.
Atleast someone there has some class. When Beyonce eventually wins “Video Of The Year.” she invites Swift back on stage to finish her speech. I got a little laugh out of the fact that Beyonce wins for the video that Kanye made a fool out of himself for.
After that whole incident, Kayne was escorted out and asked to leave. I would have expected a quick response from his people over-apologizing to Swift and MTV. Instead you get what seems like the apology of a 6 year old when he is forced to apologize and doesn’t actually mean it.
West’s apology post read as follows in full: “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 WOULD’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!!!! I’M 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!!!!!”
To be honest, I think its a beautiful thin when someone is such an asshole genius, that they type IN ALL CAPS during an ‘apology’. As an angry fan commented “Kayne could have texted “SO SRRY. MAI BAD” to Talyor Swift and it would have sounded more sincere.” I mean come on, WTF is with “I LIKE THE LYRICS ABOUT BEING A CHEERLEADER AND SHE’S IN THE BLEACHERS!”. Kanye tries really hard, but eventually makes more of an ass of himself when he continue to state that “BEYONCE’S VIDEO WAS THE BEST OF THIS DECADE!!!!”. Kanye then goes one to imply that Swift should give up her award to Beyonce. “I GAVE MY AWARDS TO OUTKAST WHEN THEY DESERVED IT OVER ME… THAT’S WHAT IT IS!!!!!!!”
In the end, its really safe to say, that Kanye is an asshole who lacks any commen sense. I’m giddy over the amount of outlash at him FROM HIS OWN FANS on various sites. I’ve been reading stuff for over an hour and have honestly not seen one ‘pro-kanye’ post. I’m acctually interested to see where it leads. There is currently a huge #teamkanye #teamtaylor war on Twitter (Update: Only #teamtaylor is still a trending topic). I’m wondering where this will all lead for Kanye’s carrer.
TL;DR Kayne West is a super asshole.
