    * Kanye West at the VMAs!

    Hey,

    I am a big country music fan, and I was browsing and found this:

    http://music-mix.ew.com/2009/09/13/k...-taylor-swift/

    How could he even do that to her? That is so sad, she is only 19 years old! Come on Kanye, give her a break.

    Just thought I would share how rude this was of Kanye, and reinforces my opinion that rap is horrible.

    Hello,
    I was speachless when I saw that and let out a WTF. I really think that it was inapproiate and a selfish thing to do. I hate to wish bad tings oon people, but I hope Kanye gets removed from all future events.

    I do believe that Beyonce was not in on it and she did a great thing by inviting Taylor Swift to the stage to finish her speech.

    I agree, I am relived to hear that his performance later that night was canceled, and he was removed from the VMAs.

    I agree that it was nice of Beyonce to bring her back.

    Wow, what a jerk Kayne was. Good to see Beyonce being gracious and bringing Taylor Swift back later. Beyonce is one classy lady.

    Kayne West is an @sshole. I can't stand this guy.

    He was so disrespectful to Taylor Swift. She's a sweet girl and doesn't deserve this [email protected] from Kayne West.


    Kayne West is a racist too. Seriously, this guy has a problem with white people.

    And in breaking news Lady Gaga has declared her disgust with Kayne's actions. "The VMAs were supposed to be all about me and not Kayne being an @sshole", said Gaga.

    I can't believe he even thought about doing that. No joke, who does he think he is.

    Honestly what kind of person compares themselves to Jesus..

    http://ulmann.blogspot.com/2006/01/k...est-jesus.html

    The last person I heard comparing themselves to Jesus was... Charles Manson...

    I just lost all respect (the little that I had) for him as an artist and as a person. He needs to wake up from his self centered dream and smell the flowers of his egotistical attitude.

    Do you think what happened with Kanye West will ruin his career?

    Absolutely! I will NEVER have respect for him as a artist or as a person, and I think a lot of others will think the same. He compared himself to Jesus! What is he thinking?! I'm a very devout christian and I believe no one comes close to Jesus. This whole Kanye incident makes me so mad and frustrated. I wish I could look him in the eye and tell him how I truly feel about him, but I have to keep it PG in here :-)

    Kayne just lost about a million record sales, and that's probably truthful when you think about it.

    I thought it was funny when he was boo'd off the stage, at least I think he was.

    I didn't get to watch the VMA's but I did see the funny little scenes on Yahoo. Poor Taylor, she's like my favorite artist (No, I don't just like her because I'm 17 and her looks, that has absolutely nothing to do with it )

    No but she has a good voice and that was just wrong on his part, I'll never buy one of his albums / songs again.
    Not sure what to put here :-P

    Well, the problem as I see it, is people like different music / videos etc... He should have kept his mouth shut.

    Quit frankly, she is a way better singer then him, song writer and has accomplished more on her 19 years on Earth, then he could ever.

    What Kanye did was really unacceptable. Taylor Swift is only 19 or 20, and he basically insults her in front of national tv. This not only makes him a fool, but now people think he is an immature jerk.

    Yeah I read about it on MySpace after it had happened. Then looked it up on YouTube. I think it was a pretty jerkish thing to do.

    I don't honestly think that this will ruin his career. He's got a long history of outbursts like this one (although not with this much press in the US). It's common for actors' careers to take a hit after they fall out of favor with the public (like Tom Cruise), but not so much with musicians, particularly those that still make music that people like.

    There was nothing funny about what he did to Taylor Swift, robbing her of her moment to thank her fans.

    The guy does this like on a yearly basis from what it seems. Dumb thing to do. But to hurt his sales? Knowing today's society, I doubt it.

    I'm not going to buy any of his music.. but I probably wouldn't have anyway. The Fray did a better version of Heartless.. but I think that title is probably a good description of him.
