Ok so I absolutely have to address this, I thought it was absolutely ridiculous. Funny, extremely funny, but harsh.
Now let's look at this- She's like 19 years old, and it's her first VMA. Yeah, sure she's one a crapload of other awards and such, but its a VMA. A VMA PEOPLE. These things are like GOLDUST. They're probably not the most prestigious things in the world either, but it's still an award I guess.
Check out what happened- Yeah that ain't gonna happen because every video on YouTube is of someone talking about the incident. We don't want that. Maybe sometime soon though. In the meantime, I guess a transcript will have to do-
Male Presenter I Don't Recognize: And the Moonman for Best Female Video goes to [opens envelope] Taylor Swift. [Cut to Swift in the audience, whose mouth falls open. She mouths: "What?!" Her song "You Belong With Me" begins to play as she walks to the stage. She hugs the presenters and accepts the statuette.] Swift: Thank you so much! I always dreamed about what it would be like to maybe win one of these someday, but I never actually thought that it would happen.

[West points to Beyoncé in the audience, who looks bemused and laughs uncomfortably; the audience boos] One of the best videos of all time! [He shrugs as the audience continues to shout, and hands the microphone back to Swift, who looks stricken.] -

Anyway, bottom line, it was pretty distasteful of Kanye to do what he did, he's made like three public apologies, which obviously isn't enough. Maybe he should stop being such a retard.
