If you did not see the VMAS Sunday…it went down yo! By now I know you’ve heard all about Kanye West and his outburst interrupting rudely Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech for Best Female Artist. Did u see that foolishness?
I love Beyonce and not taking anything away from what he said about Be’s video, but that was soooo disrespectful. Why does he have anything to do with that? (News flag…he doesn’t!!!) That’s why I commend Be for what she did when she came up on stage to accept her Video of the Year award.
Lil’ Mama decided that she wants to catch my music ghost and jump on the stage like she was apart of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ performance.
Kanye went on his blog immediately and posted an apology after realizing duh I really made a mistake:
Kanye West unplanned interview with Jay Leno 9/14/09
Jay-Z, Rihanna, and Kanye performance on Jay Leno 9/14/09
Taylor tells Us Weekly:
“Well, I was standing on stage because I was really excited because I had just won the award,” she began. “And then I was really excited because Kanye West was on stage. And then I wasn’t so excited anymore after that….I don’t know Kanye, and I’ve never met him, so…” she said. “I don’t want to start anything because I had a great night tonight.
“I’ve been getting so many text messages and everybody’s been really nice. So I’ve had a really, really fun night. It’s been interesting definitely. It’s definitely been an interesting night.”
She thanked Beyonce whom I would assume she is grateful for (who won Video of the Year). Be invited her on stage as she accepted her award to give an acceptance speech.
“They told me to stand by the side of the stage, and I didn’t really know what was going to go down,” she said. “But I thought it was so wonderful and gracious of her to do what she’s always done. She’s always been a great person before anything else. Before the talented artist, the superstar, she’s always been a great person and I just, I thought I couldn’t love Beyonce more tonight, than tonight.”
Meanwhile, Pink (who was nominated in Taylor’s category) Tweeted: “Kanye West is the biggest piece of s*** on earth. Quote me.”
Kanye took down the post a while later. Apparently all the people flocking to it was crashing his site. His site’s now being “upgraded”….
Joe Jackson tells TMZ.com:
“I had just gotten through speaking to him, he was introducing me to his girlfriend (Amber Rose) and then three minutes later he jumped up on stage. And people booed Kanye all night.”
“I don’t know what he was doing, he jumped up on stage and snatched that microphone out of that poor girl’s hand,” Joe remarked. “They should blackball him out of showbusiness for that. He just leapt (sic) up there; that was bad.”
Lil’ Mama tells MTV:
“I did not mean any disrespect towards Jay-Z or Alicia Keys,” the statement reads. “I admire them and look up to them as role models. ‘Empire State of Mind’ had my emotions running high. In that moment I came up onstage to celebrate my two icons singing about NY.”
Alicia Keys had to say on The Today Show:
“We could appreciate her being overwhelmed and inspired, but we would have preferred she did it from her seat.” – Alicia Keys (HILARIOUS!!!)
