No, the truth is, I didn’t watch the MTV VMA’s. Mostly because I’d have to make a serious effort at caring less about something than I care about what MTV thinks about much of anything. The fact that they allow a slimeball like Kanye West to be within miles of the hall the awards are being handed out at should give you a clue as to just why.

I’ve been speaking up about this clown for years, and frankly, nobody should be surprised by these antics: (Fox news)

Taylor Swift seemed pretty surprised herself to have won the VMA for Best Female Music Video on Sunday evening, but the real shock came when Kanye West suddenly burst onto the stage and rudely stole the microphone from the country crooner during her acceptance speech.

“Yo Taylor, I’m really happy for you, I’ll let you finish, but Beyoncé has one of the best videos of all time,” West said. “One of the best videos of all time!”

A clearly embarrassed Swift stood motionless, not knowing what to do as West continued his rant. Eventually, audience members rose to their feet and booed the rapper down as cameras captured a mortified Beyonce. West took his seat (to make matters worse, time was up and Swift didn’t even have a chance to fire back) and controversy continued to ensue as a multitude of celebs told him off, prompting security to circle the area.

Pop Tarts learned that Swift was comforted by her friends and family immediately afterwards and was upset by the whole incident. An inside source told Tarts that West was asked by a big-wig at MTV to immediately leave the show.

Too little, too late.
Now look; In all honesty, I haven’t seen the video that they’re referring to.  Either one of them, for that matter.  I really don’t care.  I don’t much care for either artist, and frankly, such matters are beside the point.

The fact of the matter is, this guy has been totally out of line for years.  And it would appear, that given the reactions within the hall, even people who don’t necessarily appreciate my point of view on things, generally, seem to agree with my assessment of West.

Want to know why music sales are plummeting lately?  It’s this kind of situation.

And the next person that holds up this moron as the quintessentially successful black man, one of the better example s of “the new black man”  (And yes, that’s happened several times over incidental to my previous rantings about this moron) I’m going to point you to this article.

Word on the street overnight is that West will soon be moving his address to a drug/alcohol rehabilitation center. Like that’s going to help.

Bill Cosby in his early 80’s movie, “Himself” which was essentially just him doing his usual routine (And thereby worthwhile) mentioned drugs repeatedly. At one point, he explained how someone had told him that the drugs being taken made the person more like himself. To which Cosby asked “But what if you’re just an asshole?”

I can’t help but wonder if ol’ Cos had morons like West in mind.
