Basically, the more I hear about this Kanye West/Taylor Swift showdown, the more I've decided he's SUCH A DOUCHEBAG.
Exhibit A: Pictures of Kanye getting shitfaced on the red carpet before the show (yes, that is a bottle of Hennessy he's swigging out of).
Exhibit B: Feeling up on his nasty trick Amber Rose in public. FOUL.
Exhibit C: From the Twitter account of hip-hop DJ Neil Armstrong, who was at the VMAs last night:
just so y'all know, homegirl taylor and her moms was in the back crying :(
Exhibit D: His fake-ass "apology" on, unsurprisingly, his blog. Yes, this was last night before the show was even over (I guess he left/got kicked out after the incident) and is (expectedly) in all caps. This is only an excerpt, because reading the whole thing would probably rot your brain - and, I can't find the post on his blog anymore, which is now experiencing "site upgrades in process." Suuure.
I'M SOOOOO SORRY TO TAYLOR SWIFT AND HER FANS AND HER MOM. I SPOKE TO HER MOTHER RIGHT AFTER AND SHE SAID THE SAME THING MY MOTHER WOULD'VE SAID. SHE IS VERY TALENTED! I LIKE THE LYRICS ABOUT BEING A CHEERLEADER AND SHE'S IN THE BLEACHERS! ........................ I'M IN THE WRONG FOR GOING ON STAGE AND TAKING AWAY FROM HER MOMENT!................. BEYONCE'S VIDEO WAS THE BEST OF THIS DECADE!!!! I'M SORRY TO MY FANS IF I LET YOU GUYS DOWN!!!! I'M SORRY TO MY FRIENDS AT MTV. I WILL APOLOGIZE TO TAYLOR 2MRW. WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD!!!! EVERYBODY WANNA BOOOOO ME BUT I'M A FAN OF REAL POP CULTURE!!!
Here's my favorite part, though:
I'M NOT CRAZY YALL, I'M JUST REAL. SORRY FOR THAT!!!
P.S. Because I am petty, I love when the AP gets thing wrong, like in this story, when they refer to Taylor Swift's song as "You Belong to Me." It's WITH me, kids. Do you know have fact-checkers? Were those a part of the budget cutbacks? Yeah, accuracy!
