When reached and asked to comment on his disgraceful behaviour at the MTV Video Music Awards, he said:” I always act the fool, ain’t nothing new now...I'm crazy, I know what you are thinking.." LOL!
Okay, he made no such comment, those are just a couple of lines from his rap piece in "American Boy" in which he was featured by Estelle. But no doubt, this American boy made a total fool of himself at the awards ceremony when he ruined Taylor Swift's big VMA moment with his antics.
The 19 year-old singer's award as Best Female Video for "You Belong With Me" opened the ceremony and right in the middle of her acceptance speech, Kanye ran up on stage, grabbed the microphone and announced "Taylor, I'm really happy for you. I'll let you finish," he then told a flabbergasted
Beyonce Knowles was shown by the camera to be totally taken aback by this verbal defense that Kanye undertook unsolicited on her behalf. No sooner did he interrupt the youngster's moment than the celebrity audience booed him off the stage! (way to go, Kanye you have outdone yourself this time). Not only did you show how unprofessional you are, you also depicted immaturity and gave the whole world another reason to hold on fast to the "unruly black man" stereotype! (Where was security, by the way?)
Swift later revealed that although she had never met Kanye West, she was a fan and refused to confront him as she "didn't want to start anything". The night was however salvaged by Beyonce when she went up to receive her Best Video of The Year award for "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)".
In a very classy gesture, she recalled her first award when she was 17 and called Swift up to have her much deserved moment. A nervous Swift then said, "Can we try this again?" and went on to thank everyone she would have thanked before the rude interruption by West. She was grateful to Beyonce for giving her the stage and said: "I thought that I couldn't love Beyonce more and then tonight happened and it was just wonderful." Atta girl, B!
The magnitude of West's screw-up prompted him to apologize on his blog by stating: "I'M SOOOOO SORRY TO TAYLOR SWIFT AND HER FANS AND HER MOM. I SPOKE TO HER MOTHER RIGHT AFTER AND SHE SAID THE SAME THING MY MOTHER WOULD'VE SAID. SHE IS VERY TALENTED!" Damage has been done, Kanye, a lot of people hate you now! There goes your fan base!
We at E411 are highly disappointed at this outburst. Could it have been a lame-ass publicity stunt or just his warped way of lashing out for his consistent lack of awards?
Whatever that is bugging you Kanye, do us all a favour and sort it out on a shrink's couch!
kanye's losing it right?
A photo album has been created on facebook by a very good friend of mine, he labeled it 'IMMA LET YOU FINISH'. For more on Kanye's 'IMMA LET YOU FINISH' picture series, VISIT:
