Kanye West Once Again Shows how Lame He Is...And Beyonce Shows How Classy She Is

I am not sure if anyone watched MTV's Video Music Awards last night. The hubby and I actually switched back and forth from the VMA's to Shark Tank to Khloe and Kourtney Take on Miami to Entourage. With all of our switching, we did miss Kanye West's totally inappropriate jump to the stage to basically tell Taylor Swift she shouldn't have won the award she was just given and that Beyonce should have won. I mean, he actually took the microphone away from Swift as she was giving her acceptance speech!

If only producers would have given him the results earlier so he could have known that Beyonce would win video of the year - the ultimate award of the night. Whoops. But then again, that wouldn't have given him the opportunity to be the talk of the award show. As he has shown before, he doesn't care whether the talk is good or bad.

However, I don't want to give any more attention to his lameness. Instead, I would like to focus on what a class act Beyonce is. When Beyonce won her award for Video of the Year she explained how she won her first VMA as a member of Destiny's Child and then called Taylor Swift back on stage to finish her acceptance speech. And once Swift finished her speech, Beyonce then walked off stage with her. She felt no need to continue a speech of her own. Instead, she gave the moment to the younger singer, proving that there are still performers out there with integrity, humility, and overall kindness. I thought Beyonce was pretty amazing before last night, but she is off the charts for me now. Thanks for setting a good example, Beyonce, showing that you can make headlines by doing something nice!
Oh, and I thought about posting the link to West's inappropriate interruption, but I don't want him to get any more publicity for his shenanigans. Yes, I know he apologized for his outburst, but I just wish we could hear about the nice and good things he does instead of all the idiotic actions he takes. Maybe his PR team should start working on that!

It should be interesting to see if they address the issue on Jay Leno's show tonight since Kanye is one of the guests.

Okay, so I was just watching the Jay Leno Show and he happened to have Jay-Z, Rihanna, and Kanye West scheduled to perform and he sat down with Kayne about what happened at the VMAs. But Jay actually went as far as to ask him what his dead mother would have thought of his actions...are you kidding me Jay??? I know Kanye is an idiot, but you didn't need to make him cry! On a side note, Rihanna is stoked that Kanye pulled this stunt because this was her first performance after her Chris Brown incident (that I am aware of) and there wasn't any attention paid to her or any questions asked about her summer...
