Somehow I canâ€™t find the video of the actual incident (most of them have been taken down due to a copyright claim by Viacom), which is totally fine by me. Weâ€™ve all heard all about how Kanye ran on stage when Taylor Swift won the award for Best Female Video, beating Beyonceâ€™s Single Ladies video. Rolling Stone has a good written coverage of the deal if youâ€™ve missed it.
Basically, itâ€™s another example of Kanyeâ€™s self-aggrandizing nature. Heâ€™s a narcissist and, quite frankly, not a nice man. Besides all the other times Iâ€™ve gotten my hate on for Kanye, this really just proves that heâ€™s a dumbass.
So he does this thing, shocks the world and upsets one of the nicest performers around. (Her quote about the incident was: â€œWell, I was standing on stage because I was really excited because I had just won the award,â€ she said. â€œAnd then I was really excited because Kanye West was on stage. And then I wasnâ€™t so excited anymore after that.â€) Itâ€™s unacceptable behaviour, and proves Kanyeâ€™s more of a diva than a rapper. Itâ€™s a far cry from Public Enemy fighting the good fight to a rich entitled celeb slamming some Hennessy and ruining the MTV Awards.
Kanye was tossed out and he wrote a big apology almost right away
Even President Obama is unimpressed by his moves.
Itâ€™s basically just silly politics, and he is getting mad amounts of publicity out of this deal. Iâ€™m not even going to go into the rest of the aftermath, but suffice it to say that I hope this finally does him in. Heâ€™s got no place in hip hop, besides sitting behind the mixer.
