I know hate is a strong word, but just the thought of this person fills me with rage. I don't like his music, and I especially don't like his misuse of public forums.
This despise started when I was watching "Punk'd" on MTV many years ago, where they had some fake police arrive to shut down his video production & he grabbed the film from the camera & took off running into a van & tried to drive off with the "illegal" footage. This shocked me, and I forever saw him as a potential criminal that only looks out for himself.
Then there was his repulsive display on the celebrity telethon after Hurricane Katrina where he accused President Bush of hating black people, and blamed all the problems in New Orleans on racism...instead of poor planning. He exploited this opportunity to get the public's support, and I thought I lost all respect for him then...
Until this year's MTV Video Music Awards that aired Sunday night. Taylor Swift won Best Female Video, and started giving her acceptance speech when Kanye West runs up on stage & takes the microphone away from her to say that Beyonce had the best video. Watch it here:
I personally think he should be banned from the VMA's for that kind of behavior. It's one thing to make a joke out of the fact that you didn't win, like Kathy Griffin does, but to ruin someone elses time to shine because you don't agree...COME ON!...that's what blogs are for :o)
