Who is Kayne Kanye West? Good question. I would guess that 95% of America doesn’t know who this guy is. And he doesn’t like not being well-known.
Kayne Kanye West is a “musician” who throws temper tantrums when he isn’t recognized for accomplishment or when he thinks someone is discriminated against. This guy sees more conspiracy theories behind every story than the “9-11 Truth Movement” folks.
Last night during the MTV Awards, he interrupted the young Country star Taylor Swift, who was giving some remarks after accepting an award for best female video. Apparently, West didn’t think Swift deserved the award, so he walked on stage and grabbed the microphone from her and said that the best video was Beyonce’ (does she have a last name?).
The humiliated Swift – all of about 18 years-old – couldn’t even finish after he handed the microphone back.
West has a history of outrageous thuggery – and always with a racial twist.
Who can forget this little beauty when Mike Myers and Kayne Kanye West were a part of the effort to raise money for the victims of hurricane Katrina. It would be funny if it weren’t so outrageous. Poor Mike Myers, one of the funniest people on earth, was stuck on live TV standing next to this guy as he inarticulately (to put it mildly) said that troops had been sent to New Orleans with permission to shoot Black people and inexplicably blurted out, “George Bush doesn’t care about Black people.”
I couldn’t name a song the guy sings – nor if I heard one of his “songs” would I know it was him – so it’ll be hard for me to boycott him. But you can guarantee, I would boycott him if I knew what the heck he “sang.”
UPDATE: OK, so I can’t even spell his first name right – so be it. I did not watch the MTV Music Awards, but knew something was up last night when twitter traffic was off the charts about West. Frankly, I’m glad I didn’t waste any time watching the show.
