Kanye, Kanye. Quite Contrary

So here I was waiting to watch the tribute to Michael Jackson by many especially that of Janet (Ms. Jackson if you're nasty). And it seemed the night at the VMAs was going fine until you knew it, Kanye West who wasn't even in the category to win an award got on stage and took away a teenager's (Taylor Swift) moment of winning her first VMA. What the hell?

Hey Kanye, how about picking on someone your own size? I didn't see you get on stage when Eminem won. You acted like a bully and gosh what alternate universe do you live in that makes you think you're the king and the rest of us are your subjects. Have you lost your ever-loving mind? Too late, you already did with some help from Hennessy.

And to cheapen the moment of both Swift's and the King of Pop (which contrary to your view, you're NOT his reincarnation) to the point that nobody is talking about the great duet dance of Janet with her video brother or the new generation dancing of her brother legendary moves only your CLASSLESS move is beyond appaling.

I don't care how many apologies you've issued, yes you are sorry and I don't mean it in the way you think. You're sorry for getting on that stage, you're sorry for dragging Beyonce to your tirade, and you're sorry for acting like an ignorant negro (yeah I said it).

Speaking of Beyonce, a woman you Kanye could learn an ounce of "class" from instead of being two letters removed from the word: She has gained a whole new level of respect from this girl by bringing back Swift to the stage to have her stolen moment when she could relish it for herself for winning "Video of the Year." And you, Kanye . . . have just lost a fan.

P.S. I intentionally chose not to embed that infamous video; afterall, we've seen it enough.
