For all the hype about big, mean bully Kanye West and his poor, innocent victim Taylor Swift, you'd think that somebody died at the VMA's a few days ago. But, alas, it was just a bit of garden-variety entertainment drama. No real biggie. Even still, since everyone else in the Universe, including the President, feels the need to comment on it, I offer my $0.02 here:
First, Kanye was right. Beyoncé's "Single Ladies" blows that Taylor Swift song/video out of the water. Sure, he shouldn't have "stormed the stage" to say so, but what he said was true. Everybody seems to want Kanye West to be a loose cannon when it comes to him saying things like "George Bush doesn't care about black people," but then get all bent out of shape when he suggests that the VMA's might be a little rigged. Loose cannons say unexpected and unorthodox things. You don't get to pick and choose. And, speaking of that, Taylor Swift should loosen up a bit. If you don't expect outrageous things to happen on the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards, it may be time to take a break from La-La-Land. Finally, in addition to being talented, beautiful, and damn-near perfect, Beyoncé's response proved that she is also one of the classiest chicks out there. Her yielding the stage to give Taylor Swift her "moment in the spotlight" was a Masterclass in Virtue.
Game, set, match: Beyoncé.
