Not always about you, Mr. West

What I heard, then saw on a Yahoo video, what Kanye West did during Taylor Swift's acceptance speech during the MTV awards, it makes me wonder why some people think their star is so big that they say or do whatever they want?

I want now to direct you to my friend, Sue Wilson's blog. She posted last week how down to earth Taylor Swift really is. If anyone would know about being down to earth, it's Sue.

Maybe someone could send Kanye West that way. He could learn something.

I just read about what happened this morning. Truly disgusting. But then, Beyonce truly showed what a class act really is by allowing Taylor to come back up during her time.

OK now I'm torn between commenting as the media blogger that I am, and as a person/fan of Taylor's. So I'll do a little of both.

From the media blog perspective: The MTV VMA's have had some sort of controversy attached in recent years. Kanye provided that controversy with his stunt. Controversy usually = ratings.

From the personal standpoint: Taylor handled it about the best way anyone could. And I LOVED the fact that Beyonce gave Taylor her moment to shine. IMO Kanye was a real jerk and I don't really believe his apology that is being circulated. If he was TRULY sorry, he would apologize to Taylor in person, not post it on his blog.

Just this media blogger/Taylor Swift fan's opinion...

Sometimes it is easy to see who has class and tact and who will never acquire this trait.

I was not surprised- He's had problems with his words before.
I do wonder, however, why MTV ignored the fact that 1)there is a 7 minute delay that they could have used 2)surely there was security by the steps that could have stopped the interruption. Perhaps they allowed it to happen for the publicity that all the drama caused? Just sayin'..

Kudos to Beyonce- a classy lady.

I don't even know what happened.. but i'm getting the drift from reading this post and its comment. Nice to hear Beyonce was so sweet.

I seen the VMA's and I was ticked when I seen him do that to Taylor. It was plain rude and self centered. Besides that he took away from the beautiful tribute to Micheal Jackson by his stunt. Kanye should be ashamed and learn that the world doesn't revolve around him. Kudo's to Beyonce for helping out Taylor.
