I don’t know what phrase means the exact opposite of “Breaking News”, but if you know it, write it down on a post-it note and stick it on your computer screen in front of the headline, because the (insert phrase here) from last nights MTV VMA’s was that Kanye West is an asshole who must be the center of attention at all times or he’ll throw a hissy fit.
The first winner of the night, Taylor Swift for best female video, was rudely and quickly interrupted by Kanye West, who cut off her acceptance speech. He stole the microphone to announce that fellow nominee Beyoncé had “one of the greatest videos of all time,” in “Single Ladies.”
“I was standing on stage and I was really excited because I’d just won the award and then I was really excited because Kanye West was on stage,” Swift recalled after the show. “And then I wasn’t excited anymore after that.”
It’s too bad Taylor is so nice. Because if Kanye was surprised that Beyonce didn’t win the award, imagine how shocked he would be to have that same award broken off in his ass.
