In a move that could only be expected from someone intelligent enough to scream out “George W. Bush hates black people” during a bipartisan effort to raise money for Katrina victims, Kanye West’s ego is back in the game stealing microphones and writing in all caps on his blog again.
Last night, God’s Gift to Louis Vuitton was seen swigging Hennessey on the red carpet like an 18 year old boy at his first frat party before the MTV Video Music Awards commenced. Accompanied by his super sophisticated-looking on again/off againer Amber Rose, Kanye sported crop circles on his head, which is awesome for us because that way aliens can take him away and we can be spared listening to his stupid rants about how awesome he/Beyonce is.
Swift began her acceptance speech saying, “I always wondered what it would be like to maybe win one of these some day, but never actually thought it would happen.” At that point, Kanye jumped to the stage and singlehandedly advanced race relations at least twenty years, screaming, “Yo Taylor. I’m really happy for you, I’m going to let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time.”
The shell-shocked Swift seemed to be at a loss as Kanye continued his tirade, though he did offer a bad apology on his Twitter, and kept things classy by using “apologise,” perhaps taking a leaf from host Russell Brand’s book about how to be sophisticated.
Beyonce, who later won an award, politely invited Swift to finish up her truncated acceptance speech, while Kanye was ejected from the awards show. The two embraced in a show of solidarity acknowledging Kanye’s lunacy.
Just for the halibut: a picture from when I met Taylor Swift at a Vandy tailgate. If you look closely, you can see Kanye in the background, plotting her demise for being a refined young woman who doesn’t have music videos comprised mainly from shots of women running around in skintight bodysuits.
