I don't think there is anything particularly offensive about that comment. The whole scene was a breach of protocol, but many good things are a breach of protocol. Like stage diving. Or eating wedding cake with your hands.

If instead of that fragile looking little country girl the interrupted person had been Kid Rock or Fifty Cent or Marilyn Manson, we all would have laughed. Now you're letting your hormones do the thinking, so the cute country girl merits a full blown witch hunt.
He did it probably because he has a thing for Beyonce, and the fact that Taylor Swift isn't really going to fight back. He wouldn't dream of doing it to Fifty Cent or Marilyn Manson.

But the point is not what he said when he grabbed the mic. The point is that he took away her moment. How often does one win a VMA? Not to mention that's her first time, she will never win VMA for the first time again, and he spoiled that moment for her.

I wonder if any artist ever said no to a VMA award saying they didn't want it or to be recognized by MTV.

Well, there might be but isn't the VMA voted by the public? Hence saying no is like an insult to your fans?

Oh, I see. The Video Music Awards. It's like the Oscars for 3 minute promo flicks.

This kind of proves my point. It's the Shining Armoured Knights of E-Honor coming to the rescue of My Fair Lady. Damn you Black Knight! Damn you to hell! Everything's a Hollywood movie in La La Land...

I guess it wasn't his first time but his apology in the Jay Leno show, he looked fairly sincere.

Well said.

Kanye West is an idiot. I'm not saying he can't sing but jumping up on stage during anybody's act is so basic and so stupid that it makes you wonder if the guy is missing a chromosome. You can get so informal and so caught up in the party that you forget basic manners. MTV's awards show has, for years, banked on petty scandal so much so that it's getting hard to tell the difference between it and high school, but Kanye managed to make himself the icon for idiot losers everywhere.

I don't doubt the sincerity of his apology (or the pain of having to sit there while Jay Leno asks him what his dead mother would have said) but who wouldn't be pained after pulling a stunt like that and having the whole world laugh at you?

Is Kanye sincerely sorry? I should hope so. Who would want to be the meme of the month? How do you live down something so utterly imbecilic?

Eh, can't say I've ever heard anything by him. Don't have much desire to seek him out, either.

As for the whole "controversy," I think Obama got it right.
