The first award was handed out to Taylor Swift for the ‘Best Female Video’. Naturally she gets on stage and begins speaking, saying something along the lines of I can’t believe I won, I always wanted one of these…Before you know it, Kanye 'Jackass' West runs up on stage out of NOWHERE and grabs the mic from her to say that Beyonce had the best video (Beyonce was one of the nominees). The crowd booed him, Beyonce looked a bit shocked, and Taylor Swift was stunned and unable to finish speaking. MTV then cut to a Tracy Morgan monologue and directed her off stage.
How much more of an ass could you be? The world already knows that Kanye 'Jackass' West is a arrogant fool but it is now apparent that he has some kind of inability to filter himself.
Though I do enjoy the Jackass' music, he is an ass and needs to really reevaluate his actions…that was unacceptable and hurtful to Taylor Swift who has worked hard for that moment which you took away and can’t give back.
If I were able to, Id ban Kanye 'Jackass' West from further award shows as he has exhibited the inability to conduct himself in a respectable manner, not only for tonight’s action but his actions on previous award shows and live shows.
Update - (VIDEO added)
I love it, everytime Kanye 'Jackass' West is mentioned, the audience BOOS! P-Diddy got booed for mentioning his name and the crowd started chanting "TAYLOR...TAYLOR...TAYLOR"! It was great! P-Diddy pretended that he was unaware of the debacle before and asked the crowd "What'd I do?" as he tried to conceal his laughter.
Maybe this is why the Jackass ran on stage? Perhaps he should put that Hennessy bottle down and lay off the alchy for a while...a longg while!
It has also been reported that he left the VMA's after that moment so unfortunetly, he didnt get to hear the crowd boo him several times! Its fine, Im sure he's going to hear about it!
Beyonce, in an amazing gesture of kindness, wins a VMA but instead of giving an acceptance speech, she calls out for Taylor Swift and hands her the mic allowing her to finish from earlier. Beyonce said that she could remember being 17 and winning her first MTV award. She recalled it being “one of the most exciting moments of my life” so she wanted Taylor Swift to be able to have that full experience. Taylor swift then came on stage, hugged Beyonce and said “maybe we could try this again?”…
I thought that this was incredibly gracious and not only allowed Taylor to have her moment but because of Beyonce’s act of compassion, she has earned herself great publicity and even more fans. To be honest, I was never a fan of her music and really felt whatever about her. After tonight, how can I help but not like her?She is definitely a lady and others should take note!
(Last Update...I hope) Here's the Video of Beyonce giving Taylor an opportunity to re-accept her award)
Update 5 (The Apology)
To make matters worse, unnamed sources said that Taylor Swift came off the stage in tears and was crying backstage...nice one Kanye, nice! Making little girls cry now, are we? What happened to keeping your ego in check?
via K 'Jackass' W blog, his apology/non-apology;
“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!!”
Okay so is this really an apology? Dont you hate when people say "sorry...but"! It takes away from the apology and your back to where you started from. Is he mocking her for her lyrics because then he goes on to say that Beyonce had to the best video of the decade. He has every right to his opinion but it goes to show how arrogant he is that he thinks his opinion should be the last word, enough so that he thinks he is allowed to attack the stage and yank the mic from her hand. How many times is he going to do something ridiculous and offensive? When appearing on Live TV trying to raise money for Katrina, he blurted out that "George Bush does not like Black people". Though this may be his opinion and he may share it with as little or many people as he feels necessary, was that really the place to do it? Was it responsible? (I personally think his statement was incorrect and irresponsible to make an allegation of such magnitude, specifically during a fundraiser of all places. It was stupid, just like all of his other shannanigans)
Also, last year at the awards show, like a 2 yr throwing a temper tantrum, paraded on stage crying about not winning an award! This jerk had the nerve to say, "If I dont win, this award show loses credibility"
Oh and how could I forget his meltdown caught on camera backstage. Apparently he wasnt pleased with performing in a suite instead of on the main stage during the award show...
I would just like to know who he thinks he is? Puhlease! Get help and not from that Hennessy bottle!
What are your thoughts? Let me know if you agree or disagree!
