Just when entertainment was as predicatable as possible:
I watched it over, and over, and over again. Honestly, it is the only part of the awards I watched. I have been thinking since 7 a.m., WHAT IF IT WERE THE OTHER WAY AROUND? BEYONCE WINS, AND EMINEM STORMS THE STAGE TO SAY THAT TAYLOR SWIFT SHOULD HAVE WON.
I think everyone, well MIDDLE AMERICA, would've giggled, gotten over it, and probably argued Taylor Swift's case. Awards, and especially award shows don't really make that much sense to me. 2 of the last 3 awards I've won for my music were not even presented (2008 OZONE, 2009 SEA). Once because of a fight between two rappers, and another time because all efforts were being made to accomodate a rapper from abroad (Industry ass-kissing, gotta love that <---SARCASM). Granted, neither of those were the VMAs, but the only thing I saw wrong was the means by which Mr. West went about it. His award show antics/tirades are expected at this point, but he actually TOOK the mic. I'm sorry, but that is HILARIOUS!!!
ICING ON THE CAKE: Nashville's own newspaper, THE TENNESSEAN, (FAMOUS FOR MAKING ME ELIGIBLE FOR BET'S American Gangster SERIES, with a November 2007 cover story, cites Kanye as having a real issue with the city of Nashville. WOW!
I think he had an opinion. MTV further validated his opinion by awarding Beyonce with video of the year, later in the evening. Which speaks to the award show BS, how can it not be FEMALE video of the year if it is the video of the year?
sidebar: NEW LIFE Record Store in West Nashville (no pun intended), has their sign read "KANYE WEST SUCKS"
OH WELL, in the words of the late great 2pac "LIFE GOES ON"
-I still listen to 808s
-I think Beyonce had a better video
-I still think our local paper drops the ball and is far too opinionated for the sake of journalism
-and I still don't watch TV, because advertisement is at a higher quality standard than the actual program.
with that, I DIGRESS
