You’re a Jerk: Kanye West Edition

Kanye West and Taylor Swift

Kanye West, apparently drunk off the Henny, rudely interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech during Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards. The poor girl was accepting her first-ever Moonman when West decided to steal her shine.

“I’m really happy for you. I’mma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time,” the rapper told the startled country singer.

Mr. West was kicked out of Radio City Music Hall and later apologized, saying, “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!”

Beyoncé made up for his rudeness during her Video of the Year win by graciously inviting Swift back on stage to make her acceptance speech. “This is amazing, I remember being 17 years old, up for my first MTV award with Destiny’s Child, it was one of the most exciting moments in my life,” said B. “So I’d like for Taylor to come out and have her moment.”

Next year, ‘Ye is in the balcony.

    I feel very ashamed to be a Kanye West fan right now. What he did was ignorant. Taylor has sold more records than anybody this whole year, she deserves whatever they give her. Kanye is an asshole.

    I was really expecting Beyonce to take that award as well and found it sort of random that Taylor won it, but I still feel like Kanye is 100% in the wrong for what he did. After Beyonce won Video Of The Year and brought Taylor back out on stage it made me happy that Taylor won an award. She seems so sweet and innocent. F*** you Kanye!

    Kanye is 32 years old, how pathetic can he get to try and take a 19yo spot light. Beyonce is just such a gracious person, she was raised soo well! Love that woman! lol

    kanye west was an asshole and had NO right to disrespect a 19 yr old young lady.

    His MoM would be ASHAMED and Disgraced by him.
    that was disgusting

    Her first time at VMA’s, her First Moonman and he has to go up there????

    ———–

    I gained so much more respect for Beyonce after letting taylor finish her speech, that was so ladylike and humble of beyonce!

    I hope Beyonce gives kanye a piece of her mind cuz that WAS extremely uncomfortable for Kanye to put her in that position.

    FUCK kanye

    Whether you’re a fan of Kanye or not,You got to admit that he was out of line and foul.Before the show started,Talor was interview and thought that she wasn’t going to win. Shes humble and I’m glad she won it and she deserved it.She didn’t ask for it,it was giving to her.Beyonce can’t win all the time,which she usually does,she won that catogory in ’03 or ’04.Age have nothing to do with it,for those who are saying that Taylor is only 19,and she needs more time,hell beyonce won her first vma when she was just 17 years old.If you don’t know about Taylor google her or ask billboard about her.I’m so proud of beyonce for standing up for whats right,real classy.

    Love Kanye to death, but that was wrong. Taylor worked hard for that award, she deserved it, he shouldnt have did that to her.

    I think he was just upset off of what happened to Obama last week. Cause he did the same thing.

    Hell if anything Taylor Swift should thank Kanye. I never heard of her before until this. He just gave her a career boost if anything.

    I agree ADRIAN. Kanye fans don’t give an f about Taylor Swift (and vice versa). I think Kanye did this because of the 2007 VMA fiasco where he was supposed to open the show and they replaced him with Britney’s HORRIBLE performance. I wasn’t even going to watch this lame, rigged, show but leave it to Kanye to say whats on people’s minds anyway (even though it was rude). If Chris Brown can hit Rihanna and RKelly can piss on 14 year olds then Kanye will keep making DOPE music, dope beats, selling out stadiums, and getting Louis Vuitton/Nike endorsements.

    What Kayne did was immature, period. There’s no way anyone can justify the situation. The incident also took the attention away from the incredible opening tribute to Michael which isn’t right.

    I, like many people, have been operating under the assumption for quite a while that Kanye West might be retarded. Personally I haven’t seen a music video in like 6 years so, while I have a hard time believing Beyonce has a video that could be anywhere near greatest of all time, even operating under that premise there’s no way you can justify his actions. Sounds like he pulled a Zoolander. Just walked up on stage even though his name wasn’t called? I know mentally retarded people who wouldn’t do something so inane.

    So now I’m operating under a new assumption. Kanye went from making wicked awesome rap albums to auto-tuned trash and the trash still sold. I think he’s trying to see how bad a person he can be and still sell a no 1 album.
