I don't think anyone has ever accused Kanye West of being an overly polite guy, but tonight on the VMA's he really pulled a stunt. For those of you who were watching, you know exactly what went down, but for anyone who wasn't here is the run down.
Taylor Swift won an award and up against her were Pink, Kelly Clarkson, Beyonce, etc. Taylor Swift, who admittedly I am not a fan of her music, but she seems like a sweet and innocent girl, went up onstage to accept her moon man. Kanye West proceeds to jump onstage, take the microphone from Taylor Swift and announce to Radio City Music Hall that Beyonce should have won the award. Poor Taylor and Beyonce both looked to be in shock. Beyonce is a classy girl and I am sure she was just as mortified as Taylor to be called out like that.
Someone needs to teach Kanye West how to be respectful to others when out in public. He obviously didn't learn how to lose, or in this case for his favorites to lose, with grace. I just wish that Pink would have won and he would have tried to take the microphone from her. Now that is a chick that would have taught him how to sit down and be quiet really quick!
Great way, Kanye, to put a damper on a show that started out with an amazing tribute to Michael Jackson. Madonna did a beautiful speech that made her seem more human than I have ever seen her be. Janet Jackson showed such courage to perform so soon after such a great loss. If you missed the tribute live, I am sure it will be readily available online.
Update-Beyonce won the Video of the Year and once on the stage she recalled winning her first award with Destiny's Child at the age of 17. At that point, she said that Taylor Swift deserved to come out and give her speech. Taylor came back out to accept her award. That was an awesome gesture Beyonce. It makes me proud that you are our hometown girl!
