Last night I was watching the MTV video Music Awards. Not because I'm a big fan of MTV, as much as I think it somewhat my responsibility to see what in the world is happening in the world of pop culture. The annual MTV event usually conjures up some sort of controversy I think that shows us where our culture is, and how people respond to different situations.
So I'm watching this deal last night, and Taylor Swift is nominated for the best video of the year. She wins. She comes to the platform to accept her award, and Kanye West steps up on stage, takes the mic from her hand, and basically shouts out that Beyonce's video is better.
What in the world?
I couldn't believe it. It was like watching a pre-schooler on the playground, stomp up to someone playing, and steal the ball away.
That's it. If for no other reason than this guy is so wrapped up in himself, that he thinks he can just interrupt the biggest moment of an artists career, and come off like it was nothing…
Well, I guess it tells you the nature of our culture.
It's all about me.
It's all about what I think.
It's all about disrespect.
It's all about what you can do to attract attention to yourself.
I think we should call on a total boycott of all Kanye West albums.
Watch this, and tell me what you think.
