I’m officially changing this girl’s name from Taylor Swift to Taylor Not-Swift-Enough. If I’m accepting an award and Kanye West jumps onstage with me, there is no way he’s getting my microphone. This is what this man does…this ain’t new, baby!
As much as it pissed my wife off last night, I was dying laughing last night at Kanye showing his natural a** at the VMAs. First of all, let’s take our emotions out of it for a second, folks. It’s just entertainment. And let’s not act like the VMAs is the Grammys…didn’t MTV just have Sacha Baron Cohen fall on Eminem’s head with his a** out? But Kanye’s a monster for being “disrespectful”? Come on now. Kanye plays a character…it may be a character who’s intimately close to the real Kanye, but he knows it’s expected of him to show out.
Second, Taylor Swift should be happy to be included in a Kanye bumrushing. It’s almost a rite of passage. At least Black people know who the hell she is now. I was clueless…still am in a way, but this is an opportunity to cross over for her! Use your moment! Real talk, though, the best way to turn this around is to be a good sport about it…maybe even collaborate with Kanye. Let’s be about our paper, please. I mean, do you really think she would have gotten the love she received at the end when Beyonce let her come back out if Yeezy hadn’t jumped his rude a** up there? Be for real.
And for real…let’s not act like Beyonce didn’t come out and really show people why she deserved the award more than Taylor Swift or Britney Spears’ wack a**es. Step your bodysuit game up and we’ll talk. Not everybody can pull off a routine like that. Janet didn’t even go as hard as B did on the real.
All in all, yes that was rude as hell. I’m sure teenyboppers everywhere were in tears. Am I personally mad at dude? No. It’s all entertainment and I was entertained. Taylor Swift is still getting checks and will get many more because of this. Now let’s stop actin’ like Kanye’s next joint will not be copped..and promptly.
PS: Haven’t yet checked the blog-o-verse yet, but I already know somebody’s gonna be mad about Lady Gaga thanking “God and the gays” in her acceptance speech, but please…stop before you start. Getting up in arms over that only does two things: (1) makes you look like a bigot and (b) sells at least another record for Lady Gaga.
