    CNN Anderson Cooper 360 (youtube video) ^ | January 20, 2009 | Kanye West
    At Obama's main celebrity inaugural ball, Kanye West was interviewed by a CNN anchor during "Anderson Cooper 360" about his feelings about the election. Rather than solely focusing on Obama's victory though, Kanye West ended up using the air time to DEFEND PRESIDENT BUSH. He wasn't even being asked about him. "At the end of the day, Bush, he was a human being...a real person with feelings and hurts too... and a lot of things got overshadowed...it's a shame." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2bs22JsdA0 (Statement is made at the last 1 minute of the interview)

    ABC News reporter Terry Moran caused quite a commotion tonight on Twitter following after writing: "Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a "jackass" for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT'S presidential." Although it wasn't long before Moran removed it, with over a million followers, the tweet quickly bounced around Twitter through various users. Now, an ABC spokesperson explains to POLITICO what happened:
  • Russell Brand calls George Bush a 'retard' at MTV awards

    If his aim was to be noticed by America, Russell Brand more than achieved his goal last night as he ranted that President Bush was a “retarded cowboy” while hosting the MTV awards. The British comedian, who is a virtual unknown in America, left the crème of the music world stunned as he championed Barack Obama, ran down Bush and made lewd jokes about the Christian pop band Jonas Brothers. Ignoring the renowned patriotism of Americans, Brand told the Hollywood audience they must vote for Barrack Obama “on behalf of the world”, before insinuating that America had lower standards than...

    Not everybody is laughing at Russell Brand at this year's Video Music Awards. Jordin Sparks spoke out against the British comedian's jokes about the Jonas Brothers and their purity rings before introducing T.I.'s performance. "I just have one thing to say about promise rings. It's not bad to wear a promise ring," Sparks, 18, told the crowd, off-the-cuff, "because not everybody – guy or girl – wants to be a slut." The former American Idol's comments were met by an audible cheer from the crowd. During his opening monologue, Brand had poked fun at the Jonas Brothers, suggesting that they...

    TV's depths of inanity | 8-31-2006
    The 2006 MTV Video Music Awards are tonight at 8 PM eastern. Look forward to host Jack Black, an endless parade of shameless self-congratulations and drunken F-bombs, and maybe some cretins trying to out-gross past appearances. Scheduled performances: Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Christina Aguilera. Mayor Bloomberg announced that Shakira will win (no, I'm not kidding). To commemorate the show's return to New York City, MTV has produced VMANYC2006, which will be "the site that never sleeps," with a map showing favorite celebrity places in NY.
  • MTV VMA Smut: The Smutty Quality of the Nominees

    Once again, the MTV Video Music Awards is near us, August 29 at the American Airlines Arena. Once again, the material is smut-laden and is not appropriate for the family. Nominee: Usher featuring Lil' Jon & Ludacris, "Yeah!" Comment: Men are on the prowl at a nightclub. There’s talk of getting women naked and wanting It seems there is an excess of smut here. “A lady in the street, but a freak in the bed.” Nominee: Britney Spears, "Toxic" Comment: Sexually explicit content. What do you expect from the maggot no-talent? Dr. Laura would gong her. Nominee: D12, "My Band"...
  • Once again, MTV throws wild party

    I am so disgusted with our society, where everything's accepted and nothing is sacred. The article about Britney Spears and Madonna at the MTV music awards is just one of the examples that we have lost all morals and now are on a down hill slope to rock bottom. I saw this article and it sent me over the edge. Have all women lost complete respect for themselves??? This is surely the devils playground.
