If you’re not watching the MTV Video Music Awards then you missed Kanye West pulling the biggest dick move in the history of dick moves by taking the microphone from Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech to praise Beyonce for her video that didn’t win as “one of the greatest videos of all-time.” The staggering Twatzi (that’s “twat” + “nazi” by the way) then handed the microphone back to Taylor Swift, who appeared to be so shocked that she just stood there crying. I’ve never seen anything like it, and neither have you. Here’s the video:
The thought did occur to me that this whole thing might just be another of the many VMA pranks we’ve seen over the years, but this just seems too bizarre to be a hoax, and Kanye West is enough of an asshole to do something like this, so yeah, it all makes perfect sense.
Remember when Kanye, who’s scheduled to appear on the premiere of Jay Leno’s new dumb show Monday night, promised the world that he would reform his assholishness? Yeah, well, so much for that.
UPDATE: Beyonce won an award later in the show and called up Taylor Swift to deliver the acceptance speech she wasn’t able to give earlier.
