Last night’s MTV Video Music Awards show was nothing less than spectacular! The performances were on point, the drama was on point…hell…even the red-carpet arrivals gave us something to talk about!
Kanye West and his beard date Amber Rose arrived during the pre-show carring a fresh bottle of Hennessey. Now I’m not exactly sure if Ye is a new Henn spokesperson, or if he was simply numbing the daily pains and pressures of hiding from his true self, but whatever the case, Kanye seemed a bit wasted.
It even seems as if Amber tryed to get Kanye to give up his bottle
but it didn’t work!
Kanye West’s diva moment magnatized the awards show swagger by a hundred thousand trillion and I don’t know if I’m the only one, but it seems to me the drama was very well-scripted. Now on top of that, we’ve got a ready-made excuse for Kanye’s bizarre behavior. It took about 2 weeks for Eminem to admit to being in on the joke. I wonder how long Ye will hold out.
This is why Kanye wasn’t invited to Obama’s big healthcare speech. If only the MTV VMA people had done the same – at least they had the good sense to not invite Congressman Joe Wilson. (And Beyonce’s video *was* pretty awesome.)
Shouts out to my Twitter fam for keeping this in circulation. Hilarious!
In a surprise (or very well scripted) moment in time, Beyonce gave Taylor Swift the spotlight she’d lost to Kanye West’s earlier tantrum. This photo definitely tells a story and gives Beyonce another leg up in divadom. I applaud MTV for keeping us entertained yet again!
My personal highlight of the evening for the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards was Kanye Omari West’s diva meltdown during Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech. For some of you, this is probably completely random, but since there was a “leaked” list earlier which listed Beyonce as the winner of this award, some are speculating that MTV may have changed a few of the winners to avoid the embarrassment of having a mole amongst them and of course to save the surprise factor of the popular awards show.
Just as Taylor began telling MTV viewers how much winning best female video meant to her, Kanye West ripped the microphone from her grasp and gave an outraged shout out to Beyonce.
“Taylor, I’m really happy for you. I’ll let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time! One of the best videos of all time!”
Cameras cut to Beyonce, who sat in the audience with jaw dropped in disbelief:
Meanwhile, Taylor was literally speechless as Kanye gave her the microphone back and marched off stage:

This speculation has led me personally to believe that Kanye’s outburst was merely his reaction to truth of the matter. Beyonce was robbed. I think MTV figured she’d had enough over the years and could take the fall this time. Just an observation.
