    In case you haven't heard, Kanye West had yet another one of his crazy antics in awards shows. This time it was at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. When the first award was presented to the winner - Taylor Swift for You Belong With Me (Female Video of the Year), Kanye West took the stage, grabbed the mic (and the award form poor Swift) and said, "Taylor, I'm really happy for you, and I'm gonna let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time."

    WTF?! What is wrong with this guy? Seriously.. Such an egotistical human being. I really felt bad for Taylor since it's her first win at the VMAs and for her to experience that? It's unfair.. Just unfair.

    Watch the video. Read the article. Here are the links:

    So, what are your thoughts? Any take on this?

  • Sure it was rude, but it was also classic Kanye. That Taylor Swift won just shows how much bullsh*t the MySpace Grammys...I mean, the MTV Awards...are.

  • In my local newspaper there was a poll asking if Kanye should be allowed back into award ceremoneys ( i can't spell) and 94% of the answers were "No".

    I agree to be honest. What he did was hilarious yes, but overall stupid and just made himself look bad in the end. Or worse i should say.:biggrin:

  • Yeah, so Kanye West is a huge *sshole. What's new?

    Clark I agree with you that the whole show is bullsh*t, but c'mon. That girl was getting her few minutes of spotlight robbed by a guy who should've known better. Still a dick move.

  • It was a dick move. He probably realized that in retrospect. People will get over it.

  • If Taylor Swift was a black women theres no way in hell Kanye would of pull that sh*t

    He was drunk... I've seen pictures of him drinking from a bottle all night...

    Rappers tend not to know the difference between fact and opinion... They think their opinion is the only one that matters... When someone else won... And she was white... He freaked out, and wanted everyone to know who REALLY won... In his drunk mind, anyway...

  • F*ck it, Kanye should have punched her and spiked her moonman on her skull.

    I remember a great MTV Music Video Awards Live Performance.

  • I like Snatch's message and I just wanted to say years later, with today being March 17, 2012, that I still NO LONGER LISTEN TO KANYE WEST's MUSIC because of his ignorant display of bitterness to white people, who ultimately boosted his career. The fact is many major black performers like Jay Z are all prejudice if you listen to their music, not just radio songs, but sometimes I can understand when you look impartially at the way minorities are stereotyped, portrayed or treated in society. My guess though is there are more African Americans racist against whites than vice versa and yet the government continues to allow them to take advantage of their color status. A difficult subject to tackle because I definitely encountered N.g.as from all races but I can see why some types of people choose to remain segregated and prefer to forming alliances or building a community with others of their kind who feel similar pressures, have similar problems, etc. I personally believe most is conspiracy related via Illuminati or Capitalism because the vast percentage of wealth and power in the world is seen within Caucasian ethnicities. The idea of these conspiracies is to keep these same families rich while the rest of us remain poor for eons with very few exceptions who are more than just puppets of the invisible forces. ---My review of MERRIAM WEBSTER dictionary lists ETHNICITIES as a valid plural idiots.

  • I just want to add that the spell checker is a nice feature when typing messages, despite me being a linguist who teaches English, and maybe EBONICS or slang is just RIDICULOUSLY becoming acceptable to the general population in an effort to seem young, modern, trendy, etc.

  • Well, what he did was absolutely wrong. At least be supportive when someone is receiving an applause for their work.
