Obnoxious Fool or Publicity Stunt?


For those of you following news on the VMA (not that I follow closely, just got this piece of news from a friend in Facebook), you would have heard by now on what happened to Taylor Swift while she was giving her speech after accepting the award for Best Female Video 2009. Kanye West practically stormed on stage, took the mic from her and clearly dissed her by saying Beyonce had the best MTV video of all time. Here's the video (it might be removed soon) of what happened:



Seriously, if he was just BEING Kanye, then he has never been more obnoxious AND disrespectful in his entire career. I'm not a Taylor Swift fan, but obviously the viewers have decided and she got the votes to win, and deserves to have her moment. I wonder how would he feel, IF he finally won something (LOL to that!) and someone else went on stage to just steal his much-awaited moment by announcing that someone did better. I'd bet he'd pop a vein and have a stroke right there on stage!

But IF it was a publicity stunt that was staged, I'd be just fueling that effort by making this post. What he did was a tad too daring and stupid, even for him. It'd be jumping to conclusions to say that there isn't any underlying motive to make himself look so bad so that he'd get more attention. And it's not an accidental outburst that would really kill his career as well *cough* Chris Brown *cough*. As if he doesn't have enough attention as the arrogant and hot-headed person that he already is, and I think this whole episode will just further aggravate his notorious reputation. Time will only tell if so-called publicity stunt would work in his favor or if his career sink like quicksand from all the new haters he just 'recruited'.

Regardless if Kanye was being an idiot or if whole thing was staged, POOR Taylor. It's her first award (I think) after working so hard, and this shit happens ruining the moment. Really felt for her as she was left speechless and dumbfounded and didn't even have enough time to finish what she wanted to say...

Yeah, I never liked him as well but I think he pulled a 'Chris Brown' this time...

How you know this act is not a planned act between the organiser and the artistes?

They got their results by attracting your attention and thus, people would remember them.

Don't you know in the entertainment industry, they have to create news to pull the crowd's attention? Lol...

Just like in the politic arena. Using the same technique.

Like I said, it might be staged. IF it was, then it's just doing more harm than good for Kanye...
