Can we just ban Kanye West from these events and stop giving him the attention that he so desperately wants?
It was a display of class, or lack there of, that we have become custom to with rapper Kanye West_SwiftWest. As Taylor Swift was named the winner of “Best Female Video” at the MTV Music Awards, West did his best impersonation of a lowlife, thug, jackass and ruined the moment and acceptance speech by the Country singer, Taylor Swift. What class, telling a winner of an award that some one else should have won it.
VIDEO can be seen here.
The singer, Taylor Swift, 19, whose hit song You Belong with Me had just won the award for Best Female Video, stood motionless and open-mouthed as West jumped up from his front-row seat, grabbed the microphone from her, and said: “You Taylor, I’m really happy for you . . . but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time!”
The rest of the audience, after a brief moment of stunned silence, began to boo the rapper.

Thankfully, audience members rightfully booed Kanye West after his despicable display. Later in the show when Kanye’s name was mentioned, boos and chants of “Taylor” could be heard throughout the venue. Enter Beyoncé, who would win MTV’s grand prize of “Video of the Year” and would show great class and made it right for what happened to Taylor Swift.
Before calling Swift back up on stage — “I would like Taylor to come out and have her moment,” she said — Beyoncé told the audience how important it had been for her to win her first MTV award. The two singers then hugged and Swift completed her thank-yous. West, who had been seen drinking before the show, apologised on his website. “I’m sooooo sorry to Taylor Swift and her fans and her mom. I’m in the wrong for going on stage and taking away from her moment!” he wrote.
Oh, that’s mighty big of Kanye, he apologized on his website. How about in public? I refuse to even link to his site as it was not an apology.
As the Gateway Pundit reminds us, this is the same idiot that blamed George Bush for killing black people,“he don’t care about black people,” in New Orleans.
From the Politico, ABC News reporter Terry Moran caused quite a commotion tonight on Twitter after writing the following: “Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a “jackass”  for his antics on MTV. Hmm, should he have said he acted “stupidly” instead?

Shocker that the Tweet was deleted shortly after. What is up with this President getting involved with such issues while he has Obamacare, the economy and deficits to worry about? It appears that ABC ran with “off the record” comments. That’s priceless, so it was actually said.

Kanye West apologizes for the third time on Jay Leno Show. Stop giving this punk air time, you are giving him exactly what he was after in the first place. West wants to apologize in person. Some words of wisdom, I don’t think you want to visit Taylor in her home town of Nashville, her fans just might take exception.

West said he knew he was wrong the moment he handed the microphone back to Swift, when he was bathed in boos. He had interrupted Swift on Sunday night as she accepted a best female video award for “You Belong With Me,” arguing that Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” was more deserving.

“It was rude, period,” West said. He posted a second apology to Swift on his blog on Monday, and told Leno he wanted to apologize to the country music star in person.

TMZ has the audio of President Obama calling Kayne West a “JACKASS”

After making the remarks, Obama said “Where’s the pool?” Presumably, he was worried the joke would go wide. He noted the last time that happened, he got burned for killing a fly.

The Astute Blogger is dead on … Obama should have made his comment “on the record” if he had the stones. Obama had no problem stating that the Cambridge, MA police acted stupidly at a press conference on healthcare, why couldn’t The One have defended Taylor Swift in public and condemned Kayne West?

Oops, but instead he did it off the record, even though it got out anyhow.

“Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a ‘jackass’ for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT’S presidential,” “Nightline” co-anchor Terry Moran wrote Monday evening to his more than 1 million followers.

Weasel Zippers have an interesting premise, did Obama do this purposely in order to show that he was one of us as his poll numbers are dropping? Why else would a media in his back pocket release off the record comments unless they were nudged to? But that would take a MSM that was in the tank for Obama. Oh wait, they are.

Newsbusters with a nice analysis of Obama’s “jackass” comment with the media. The surprise was not the “jackass” comment regarding Kanye West, who basically is a jackass, if not worse. The issue really is, what is up with the President and the MSM being so buddy, buddy? Where was this audio taken, at an Obama pool party? It’s just one big Obama-MSM love-fest party, no wonder America cannot get stories like Van Jones and the Acorn scandals covered by the MSM.

      no doubt this boy is a democrat.

    2. St Stephen on September 15th, 2009 7:16 am

      kanye the klown said beyonce video was the best ever.

      When I saw it, it looked like 3 hookers(ACORN?) jumping up and down in the bar of a cheap bordello on a hot Satutday night. Yum!

      Nothing new there, but the video and the fact that beyonce did not once renounce kanye the klowns thuggery leads me to understand/believe that she is actually LACKING in class. 2 peas in a pod, in my book.

    3. Rust Bridges on September 15th, 2009 8:23 am

      #2, Beyonce brought Taylor out when Beyonce won her award and let her have her moment back. She did not renounce him, not her place especially when the audience did it already. Beyonce is a 1st class woman and very talented.

      Two different artists and videos that appeal to two different audiences, why insult her?

      Kanye has a thing for Beyonce and let himself get out of hand as he has in the past.

    4. kitty on September 15th, 2009 8:25 am

      in the photo’s on another site ~ it shared how Beyonce was shocked… What I saw was not a face showing shock… there was this… you go Kayne… and she had such a smug smerk on her face… was it pre planned… looked like she’s loving that he did that!

      Where the heck was any security from allowing anyone else to charge up on stage?… mmm… i felt so bad for Taylor Swift…

      Kayne needed a Swift boot kick in his a$$ ~ she showed such grace…

    5. megamooo on September 15th, 2009 8:33 am

      Now just imagine if Beyonce had won and Keith Urban jumped onstage to proclaim that Taylor Swift had “the best video ever” ???

    6. jennifer on September 15th, 2009 8:38 am

      His “apology” on Jay Leno was complete bull. Jay Leno should have asked him NOT to be on his show. KW needs to just go away!

    7. Buster on September 15th, 2009 8:53 am

      just like obamanos he ruins ever thing in his path !!!

      #3 Rust Bridges


      I beg to differ, especially when she smiled so broadly and apparently approvingly when he was making a monkey out of himself(and her).

      I did not insult her. I just saw the video as a meat market(a two bit one at that). I only viewed it because I wanted to see what won the award and why kanye the klown was so upset about Swift winning one award. Yeah two styles, and beyonce just adds more evidence to the dumbing down of America with that skanky “artistic” video.

      Now, do I insult her or does she do that to herself.

      funny, like a klown.

    9. St Stephen on September 15th, 2009 9:58 am


      You can call her first class, but I haven’t seen anything yet to justify that she is, at least not in the video of the year, or whatever that was that she won(lot of assets, though:-)

      Parcel post in a plain brown wrapper sounds about right.

    10. Carpe on September 15th, 2009 10:59 am

      Unfortunately, Kanye West has the Gary Coleman disease.

      Little men, think little thoughts.

      …and that statement has nothing to do with
      height or body build either.

      You know the personality type. The person who is
      angry at the world for reasons known only to them… and they take it out on the first poor
      soul who is unlucky enough to walk into their

      It makes for one bitter, very sad human being.

      U no wot I um sayin’ Kanye, right dawg? BOO YEAH!

      Just keepin it real, YO.

    11. St Stephen on September 15th, 2009 11:31 am

      I anticipate the day he marches up the stage and the person he tries to take the mike from refuses to relinguish it.

      Then what? Pushing? Shoving? A fight ensuing? Or will he humbly slither back to his seat? I do await the day…and will admire the brave soul who does just that.

    12. Rust Bridges on September 15th, 2009 11:47 am

      Calling someone a hooker is not insulting?

      You admit you don’t know her or her work but you can say for sure that she has no class. You say that the video is a meat market then you elude that you appreciate her assets? I’m just confused.

      Yeah, Beyonce is the first and only person to ever use sex appeal in her art, the shame.

      That look on her face is obviously a nervous smile, she is confused if it is for real or not.

      West got carried away is all that happened. I’m sure he knows he was an ass.

    13. Michelle Smith on September 15th, 2009 1:14 pm

      It’s this kind of crap that has turned me off of watching any of the awards shows. I used to watch all of them but it has turned into a circus and I refuse to watch as these clowns make asses of themselves. They can’t help it, they are just classless losers.

    14. St Stephen on September 15th, 2009 3:58 pm


      Gee, Rust, I did not call the women hookers, just that they LOOKED LIKE hookers in a cheap bordello, that’s all. If that is the role they want to play, that is the class they manifest.

      Yeah, I meant meat market.

      But hey, assets are assets, don’t be that confused. I’m not:) I am not averse to sex appeal but I do not think that was an award winning video by any stretch of the imagination.

      And you can like her all you want. I know what I saw on the screen and to me it was not nervousness that made her grin so broadly. From what I read it was beyonce’s dad that suggested that she give the time to Taylor. I know the father said it was her decision but read between the lines and if the old man did not suggest it, it was not gonna happen.

      So please, no more about saint beyonce the good girl, please.

      I agree with Donald Trump that kanye the klowne should be boycotted but there are too many dumbed downed fools to allow that to happen.

      To be fair, though, I will try to see some other videos by Beyonce to see if what you say is true.

    15. Greg the Mongoose on September 15th, 2009 5:52 pm

      Kanye West is a overrated gangster rap celebrity.
      He has done other stunts on MTV before.
      MTV plans this sick stuff. Example below.


    16. Scared Monkeys on September 15th, 2009 8:48 pm

      Kayne West is what we refer to in the industry as an A$$ Clown.

    17. Rusty Bridges on September 16th, 2009 6:48 am

      #14, no, I’m confused as to why you can put her down and yet oogle her as the same object you claim to despise.

      I don’t know where you get the idea that her dad told her to invite Taylor out, he has denied the rumors, but whatever.

      Kanye West was the offender, how did Beyonce get dragged in to this?

    18. Scott on September 16th, 2009 7:10 am

      St. Stephen…kayne is a punk and you are a punk. Taylor Swift is a class act and a first class person unlike that idiot. He was ROUNDLY booed, even by his own “people.”

      You’re a racist punk and there is really no hope for you. You are part of the problem of what is wrong with this country. It would be a great day in this country when people like you leave this world!

    19. Miss-Underestimated on September 16th, 2009 7:37 am

      What is the affiliation between Kanye and Jay Z, Beyonces hubby?

      It was a set up that backfired by two racists. Beyonce and Swift being the innocent in this

      Kanye I heard they stuck a fork in you and yep, you are done!!!!

    20. david r on September 16th, 2009 8:15 am

      Goes to show you how we should not put too much credence in what comes out of the mouths of “stars.” I am amazed at how people listen so intently to the words of people like Tim Robbins and George Clooney, a couple of slapdicks who never even went to college.

    21. super dave on September 16th, 2009 10:38 am

      the boy just could not handle the jealousy as evident in all his endeavors.

    22. Miss-Underestimated on September 16th, 2009 12:23 pm

      Kanye the racist, also had a legal tangle with Evel Knievel the case was settled a few days before Evel passed.

    23. St Stephen on September 16th, 2009 3:08 pm

      #18 Scott

      I could care less what you THINK I am.

      Until you slithered in this thread with your weeping and gnashing of teeth I didn’t think of you AT ALL, to be honest and sure about it.

      No use talkin’ to me while the penicillin is not working on your terciary form of syphillis.

      And don’t worry about me leaving the world, it appears you already left it!(LU-LU! LU-LU! – Ed Norton sleepwalking in a Honeymooners episode))

      You talk like a man with a paper a**hole anyway, so adios, muchacho.

      #17 Rust

      Her name was mentioned, that’s how. And she appeared to soak it all in!

      If you read the story, he(pappy) said it was her DECISION, not her IDEA. Get it? I hope you do, because Scott just stunk up the thread and I am outta here as he accomplished his mission with his mouth(as is the abnorm).

    24. St Stephen on September 16th, 2009 3:21 pm

      #17 Rust


      I don’t despise anything, I just don’t see how the video is all that good is all.

    25. Miss-Underestimated on September 16th, 2009 7:58 pm

      Kanye did you get those blacks kids to beat up the white kid on the bus???

    26. St Stephen on September 16th, 2009 9:09 pm

      #25 Miss-Underestimated…

      Believe it or not, there may be a lot of truth in what you say. Brazen is as brazen does, and without consequences the sky is the limit.
