Kayne Loses Cool

Taylor Swift was enjoying her first MTV Video Music Award moment when the always-outspoken Kanye West decided to demonstrate that he disagreed with the results. Later, Beyonce showed the highest class by handing over the microphone to Swift for her West-interrupted VMA acceptance speech.

Once the New Moon mania calmed, Beyonce took the stage with an interesting take on Single Ladies. Interesting is a kind word to describe the dancing-while-a-recording-of-Beyonce-plays-the-song performance.

Performance-wise, the next band took the VMA award for best performance of the night. Muse rocked a theater near Radio City Music Hall where a packed crowd sang along with every word of Uprising.

Pink went Sober hanging above the crowd and then New Yorks finest jammed to close the show as no one else could. Jay-Z and Alicia Keys jammed New York that had the entire Radio City crowd spellbound and screaming.

As usual, more of the stupid rappers [guys who talk their songs because they cant sing] in action. Kanye you are an absolute jerk! Oooo you can TALK songs . Wow. Talented arent you? I DO begrudge your success and would take it all away from you if I could because YOU are a childish little brat who never grew up to become an adult. You dont deserve "success"... Your insipid lyrics prey on young black men and women and you simply manipulate them. Hey I hope YOU suffer tremendous piracy if people are going to listen to your songs. I would in fact LOVE to host a site that gives your crap away for free.

Who does Kanye West think he is? What ever made him think we wanted his opinion on anything and what made him think he had the right to step on a young persons accomplishments? Just another example of a thug who thinks he is someone because he has a little success. Shame on you.
