Or Joe Wilson.

I thought it was hilarious personally. As a longtime fan, the second I saw him on stage I knew what was going to happen. there is no disputing that his an asshole of the highest caliber. Self-involved, immature, etc. But its endearing in that "oh Kanye, what nonsense are you spouting now?" way. Many of us have had a friend like that at some point. He'll mature out of it, like they all do. I appreciate the fact that he's completely honest, albeit misguided. He makes for great/unpredictable television. That's certainly more than you can say for most popular musicians these days. From the music standpoint, it may not be everyone on his forum, but from a hip hop perspective he has an incredible body of work under his belt. That much, is not up for debate (excluding his latest outing).

I dont think anyone is debating that he's a good artist, we're simply saying he's an idiot.

Brilliant publicity stunt.

I can only speculate on what would have happened had Beyonce won and some burly male country music star--say, someone like Trace Adkins or Toby Keith--had wrested the microphone from her and proclaimed Taylor to be a more deserving winner. Somehow, I think the level of public outrage and indignation would have been far higher.

I think it would take a considerable amount of bravery for either of them to pull that off.

What if he disrupted Beyonce's speech?

Would there be this amount of outrage?
Faux-outrage and celebutard twattering galore, absolutely. With MTV clawing at any chance to stay relevant any "scandal" will do.

Its a shame really that so many are fabricating a racial issue where there is none. 1. I firmly believe Kanye had decided early on that if anyone not Beyonce had won he would that. 2. Its not a matter of black/white, its a matter of whats relevant to the intended audience. A more appropriate scenario would be: Had Beyonce won an award at the CMA's and this had happened to her what would be the outcome? People would still be talking just as much because its flat out disrespectful but I think the race thing would not have been soooo implied.

The only thing that bothers me about it is the ironic implicit racism shown by those claiming racism to begin with. Honestly, fuck MTV/VMAs, fuck Kanye, and fuck Taylor. Move on.

Kanye West went through a ton , his mother died, Michael Jackson died and his album hasn't really sold as many copies as his previous 3 did. So I think he was probably taking some sort of anit-depressant like Prozac and what we saw was the result of negative some side effect. He did look a bit more muscular than ever with that sleeveless so maybe roid rage? I don't know but I think the public is blowing this up way to much and the media is also because it sells. I mean who doesn't like controversy? I read somewhere that he's on suicide watch.

He interrupted a MTV award show for crying out load!!! You all act like he interrupted a Grammy speech. You all should be ashamed of watching this teeny bob show.

I'm a real douchebag and I didn't know who Swift was before someone posted about this shit on facebook. Kanye west is a stupid dork and I'm sure Swift's music is some generic studio shit that would make me gag. Now anyone that calls him a thug is def on some racial stereotyping bullshit and that's also a fact. I'm thankfully not a celebrity because last week, while deeply intoxicated, I threw a beer at some random (black) guy while attending a fashion event at a luxury hotel. Among other niceties... Fuuma doesn't care about black people!!!
