Video: Kanye West’s place in jackass hall of fame now secure
Hot Air ^ | SEPTEMBER 13, 2009 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Posted on 09/13/2009 9:47:56 PM PDT by RobinMasters

It’s been secure for years, actually, and not just because of the infamous “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” crack. This isn’t the first time he’s acted like a royal A-hole at an awards show; in fact, it’s not even the first time he’s rushed the stage during an acceptance speech to protest the winner. That happened a few years ago at the MTV Europe Awards. Even so, I salute him: In this season of political turmoil, Americans are finally united in hatred of his pure, preening douchebaggery. No small accomplishment.

Taylor Swift, who’s all of 19 years old, evidently was spotted “crying hysterically” backstage afterwards, although she managed to pull it together in time to reappear during Beyonce’s moment of graciousness at the end of the show. The boss has video of that. Exit quotation from Karl, imagining an Obama-orchestrated West/Swift beer summit: “Let me be clear: I didn’t watch the VMAs, so I don’t have all the facts. But Taylor Swift acted stupidly.”

(to the tune of “I am the Very Model of a Modern Major General”—Gilbert and Sullivan):

I am the very model of a modern racial activist,
I’ve no solutions of my own, except my own self-righteousness
I whine and cry and jump the gun whenever I feel somewhat sad—
Because it’s some old white man’s fault that my whole day is going bad...

Well here’s another stanza :D

I wake up in the morning and I tune up for the daily yell
My righteous fury, wrath, and rage comes from a deep, unending well
And jobs—I hate the thought of work—it cuts into my time for play
Because discrimination suits last longer as a source of pay!

I had never heard of this clown until he made the George Bush doesn't care about blacks comment. He's a nobody as far as I'm concerned.

Will this hurt him. I doubt it. The types of people who are fans of this no talent AH could probably care less. Heck they have such poor taste that they probably see nothing wrong with this outrage. The guy should be treated like he's radioactive but he won't be.

The industry he works in is garbage and they cater to garbage people. They are his fans.

Kanye West, Political Activist?

Snippet: "George Bush doesn't care about black people."

Please pardon Kanye West's subtlety, but these are not the words of a young, black hip-hop artist who should've been pitching his new album instead of pitching for donations for Hurricane Katrina relief funds. These are the words of a political activist. Though this new label and new role are all so, well, new, it's surely something West will have to deal with the rest of his career.

And how wonderful that Beyonce made up for it by inviting Taylor Swift back onstage to, as Beyonce said, “have her moment”. That was pure class.

That reached a level of douchebaggery that only a jacka$$ would be proud of.

I see that Beyonce really showed that piece of dirt what class actually looks like later in the broadcast.

Kanye is an ass, pure and simple. I am not a big Beyonce fan, but man, does she REALLY show some class when she called Taylor back on stage during what would have been Beyonce’s time, to allow Taylor to speak. Beyonce saved the evening there, so I give her all the credit she deserves.

People who are rude and self-centered often get away with stuff like this, because the rest of us are civilized and expect others to be, and just don’t know how to react to someone who has no class.

I bey Kayne is smart enough not to try this at the rap music awards, or someone would cap his *ss.

According to sources at the VMAs, Swift was seen hysterically crying backstage after Kanye’s outburst, making it convenient that her performance of “You Belong to Me,” which immediately followed the acceptance speech, was prerecorded. Wale, who is serving as MC for the house band, told the crowd, “You can’t fault a man for speaking his mind,” which was promptly met by boos from the Radio City Music Hall crowd. According to our sources inside Radio City, Kanye was promptly tossed from the VMAs after interrupting Swift’s speech. http://www.rollingstone.com/rockdaily/index.php/2009/09/13/kanye-west-storms-the-vmas-stage-during-taylor-swifts-speech/

I had to Google the MTV Europe award fiasco. What an insecure, attention-starved pinhead:

It happened when Justice Vs Simian’s “We Are Your Friends,” not Kanye West’s “Touch the Sky,” was awarded Best Music Video. Kanye lost his anger and stormed the stage as French DJ Justice collected the award.

“F**k this! My video cost a million dollars,” West said at the event, held in Copenhagen, Denmark. “Pamela Anderson was in it, I was jumping across canyons and s**t! If I don’t win, the awards show loses credibility. Nothing against you (Justice Vs Simian), but hell man.”

Despite winning the Best Hip-Hop award, West continued with the tirade at a post-award press conference. “I haven’t seen (the Justice and Simian video). Possibly it could have been quite good, but no way better than “Touch The Sky.” That is complete bulls**t, I paid a million. Obviously it’s not all about the money, but the response it got transcended everything, it really made great TV. It took a month to film; I stood on a mountain; I flew a helicopter over Vegas. I did it to be the king of all videos and I wanted to walk home with that award. The reason the other video won, that was some spread the love bulls**t, ‘Oh everyone should have an award.’ Please press people print, ‘Kanye says f**k that!’”

In my best Kanye West Autotune voice:

Gay Fish

*Interlude*
Yo, uh, uh c’mon

*1st Verse*
I’ve been so lonely girl, I’ve been so sad and down
Couldn’t understand why haters joked around
I wanted to be free with other creatures like me
And now I got my wish, cause I know that I’m a gay fish (gay fish)

*Chorus*
(Gay fish Yo) mother f’in’ gay fish
(I’m a fish yo) goin’ on a gay fish
(It’s alright girl) makin’ love to other gay fish

*Verse 2*
All those lonely nights at the grocery store
In the frozen fish aisle feelin’ like a whore
Cause I wasn’t being true
Even though everyone said that I had to make a switch
(Gay fish) now I know that I’m a gay fish (gay fish)

*Chorus*
(Gay fish Yo) mother f’in’ gay fish
(I’m a fish yo) Goin’ on a gay fish
(Now I’m where I belong girl) makin’ love to other gay fish

*Verse 3 Rap*
I used to be scared, denying who I was
Acting straight but then going out to the gay fish clubs
Dancing with the Marlins making out with the all the Snappers
I’d take a Salmon home and work that Coddle Fin for hours
But now I’m out and I’m free to love what I want
Be it Yellow Fin or Bass or them trout in Vermont
I slapped that Holland ass, make that Grouper butt shake
I’ll come to your house and have an orgy in your mother f’in’ fish tank (fish tank, fish tank)

*Chorus*
Mother f’in’ gay fish
(I’m a fish yo) Goin’ on a gay fish
(Yeah now I’m where I belong girl) makin’ love to other gay fish

*Verse 4*
I really get around I’m the slut of the sea
When I say I’ve got crabs I mean it literally
I was eating dinner and just had to go down on that Mackerel on the dish
Cause I’m the gayest of the gay fish (gay fish)

*Chorus*
Mother f’in’ gay fish
(I’m a fish yo) Goin’ on a gay fish
Yeah now I’m where I belong girl

*Verse 5*
But I gotta settle down I can’t be a whore
I ain’t gonna just sleep with any fish no more
I’ve found me a lover, a brother who’s a cross-dressing Cod named Trish
And together we are gay fish (gay fish)

*Chorus*
(Gay fish yo) mother f’in’ gay fish
(I’m a fish yo) goin’ on a gay fish
(Yeah, now I’m where I belong girl) makin’ love to other gay fish
(Gay fish, gay fish, gay fish, gay fish, gay fish, gay fish...)

Well then, don't. Blaming all black people for Kanye West's boorishness is inane. And if all black people are to be blamed for Kanye West's lack of class, then surely all black people deserve to share the credit for Beyonce Knowles' class in bringing Taylor Swift up during her spot and making sure she got her moment.

Kanye West is an asshole. The only question I have is, why were there no “men” in the audience or staff, because someone needed to confront this guy on stage, tell him to apologize to Taylor Swift right then and there, and then told to get the f*ck off the stage...

What a contrast between this creep and the young lady on stage:

While she was only able to get a few words out, Taylor Swift appeared very gracious and appreciative of this award. This West thug is a...well, a thug!

What a very sad commentary!

For what it’s worth, congratulations Ms. Swift. Don’t let this thug take away from the recognition you recieved. Please don’t lose your gracious attitude...it will take far in life!
