Because of my unusual work schedule, today is kind of like my Friday as I’m off for the next two days. There’s nothing more lame than having nothing to do on a “Friday” night.
I chilled with Daveface for a little bit after work, but after that I pretty much fell asleep on my homework until dinner time and then went on Facebook. I found out the VMAs were on MTV so I decided to watch that.
I’m sure that Xanga is going to have tons of entries similar to this one or opposing this one because of what happened during the show. But I must speak my mind on this.
That’s right. I’m talking about the Kanye West vs Taylor Swift incident. For those of you who don’t know, Taylor Swift won Best Female Video for “You Belong With Me”. I have to comment that I love most of the songs from the nominees. Kelly Clarkson, Pink… “Poker Face” and “Hot N Cold” are some songs and artists that are in my collection. But I love Taylor’s video the most. Taylor deserved to win, in my opinion. She looked totally adorable when her name was announced. She was pleasantly surprised and extremely happy. Out of nowhere comes Kanye West who takes the mic from her and says “Taylor, I’m really happy for you. I’ll let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time … one of the best videos of all time!” and walks away. You can read about it here.
Alright. I am not here to bash Beyonce by any means. At all. I was extremely impressed with the way she let Taylor have her big moment in the end. I thought it was classy and truly sweet. But musically, I am not a big fan. I don’t think she’s very good and I don’t think the video in question was really “one of the best videos of all time”.
But it’s not about that. The fans voted for Taylor Swift for this particular category. This was her moment. Not Beyonce’s. He had no fucking right to get up there and take it from her. He could have been right about Beyonce’s video and that still wouldn’t have given him the right to take that away from her.
Quite frankly, I don’t know what he was bitching about anyway. Beyonce won Video of the Year. Isn’t that better than Best Female Video? So maybe he should have sat his ass down and watched the entire show before running his mouth.
I hope he feels like a complete dumbass right now.
Kanye, you are an ignorant prick for ruining her big moment like that.
Taylor, “you’re beautiful, every little piece, love” and keep rocking out, because your fans love you and you totally deserved to win that award.
And Beyonce, I may not be a fan, but I do love you for doing the classy thing. You are so awesome for that!
