If you've missed it, Kanye West was given a Vanguard Award at the VMAs a few minutes ago with a much hyped presentation from Taylor Swift.
After a 3-4 minute long video glorifying him was shown and after he'd received an overly gracious presentation from Taylor Swift, Kanye rambled
aimlessly for an uncomfortably long time, at one point whining about getting booed by 60,000 people at a baseball game to show that he
victim. After a bunch of nonsense about having a daughter and inner turmoil, he finally pulled the pin, dashing any lingering anticipation of an
apology and taking on an unapologetic air of self-righteous indignation, shifting into full Donald Trump mode and spinning his earlier behavior into a
completely bogus narrative about an artist's struggle to fight for "truth," a theme which was (coincidentally, I'm sure
) promoted heavily
within the video that had just been shown. Even his alleged dilemma was carefully crafted, stating that in his opinion, CeeLo Green or Justin
Timberlake deserved the Grammy over Swift.
Continuing to take pages from The Donald's
playbook, he appeared to throw MTV and the whole music establishment under the bus by commenting on
how much MTV had hyped the fact that Taylor Swift was presenting the award. Who actually believes this? MTV gave him a big platform for him to put on
a show and he happily obliged. Of course he did, they have a common interest. They got their viewers, he got his platform and now I'm sure Twitter and
the entertainment blogosphere will be ablaze.
After what seemed an eternity, the coup de grâce: he announced that he's running for President in 2020.
