As you probably have heard by now, Kanye got up onstage after some skinny country chick won the MTV best video award. With righteous indignation, Kanye merely pointed out that Beyonce should have won the award.
What part of this is a problem? Did you really want to hear this no-name country hick give praise to Jesus and her momma and poppa? Who cares what she has to say or what she thinks. Kanye speaks for the entire free world. Basically, it’s his job.
Some have suggested that K just wanted to get some publicity because his album sales have been less than inspiring lately. This is patently ridiculous. Kanye is at the top of the entertainment world now that Michael is dead. He doesn’t need any publicity because his extraordinary talent speaks for itself.
Keep in mind; this is the genius that wrote these beautiful lyrics:
Ahh… The sweet taste of victory
Go head and breath it in like antihistamine
Bob Dylan who? That is the stuff of legends (and I don’t mean that creepy John Legend who always seems to be having a party in his pants). Has anyone ever in the history of music rhymed “antihistamine”? I thought not.
Predictably, other “stars” had something to say about Kanye’s speech. First, there was Pink. You remember her, don’t you? She is the he/she that was famous for about 10 minutes in the 90’s. I don’t know what she said and I don’t care.
Next up was Kelly Clarkson. She wrote something on her website about Kanye. I am not surprised she wrote it because she couldn’t speak since her mouth is usually full of donuts and PBR. Go back to Texas you freakin’ hillbilly.
Also not surprising is that most of the people criticizing K are white. I guess they figure that it’s bad enough that they already have to listen to one black man (Obama) and that two is just unacceptable. This is straight profiling and yet another example of the man holding a brother down.
In an interesting twist, Kanye was going to snatch the microphone from Obama during his speech to the country but that white dude from South Carolina messed up his timing. K hopes to interrupt Jerry Lewis next year and ask why the black man is not represented by neuro muscular diseases.
All I can say is keep it real my brother. Where there is a microphone and injustice, know that Kanye will be there.
