Jerk with a capital J...

I didn't watch the MTV Awards tonight, however after seeing about a thousand facebook status messages talking about what a jerk Kanye West was, my curiousity got the best of me, and I asked a friend what everybody was talking about.

My friend informed me that Pop/Country star Taylor Swift won an award over Beyonce (and Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry, and so on...) and Kanye West actually came one stage and crashed her acceptance speech -- he took the mic right out of her hands -- and informed her, and everybody else that was there, and the millions of people watching that he was "really happy for her, and he would let her finish. But Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time..."


I probably shouldn't be as shocked as I am, given that Kanye West is known for his blatant arrogance. But wow, this is a new all time low, even for him! -- Kanye's constant need for attention, and his god-complex are pathetic and got old real fast.


A "happy ending" did arise out of this situation when Beyonce called Taylor Swift back onto the stage to accept her (first ever) MTV Award. But still...Kanye is seriously a jerk.


  1. On some level, it's kind of amusing to see that he's breaking out the old assitude. But at the expense of Taylor Swift? FAIL.
