Without even turning on my television on, Twitter delivered all the breaking news about Lady Gaga’s shocking performance with fake blood, Lil’ Mama’s awkward guest appearance with Jay-Z and Alicia Keys, and Kanye West pulling another Kanye West, this time interrupting Taylor Swift to proclaim, “Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time!”
Another Video Music Awards presentation, another Kanye West tantrum.
Typically, I wouldn’t yield an inch of precious blog real estate for an awards show, let alone one hosted by a channel better known for ‘reality’ television, but I wanted to make every reader aware of when Kanye first stormed the stage of the European Music Awards in 2006 in protest of the victory of “We Are Your Friends” for Best Video. The next day’s apologetic phone call to Busy P, then Justice’s manager, would ultimately spawn “Stronger” and the So Me directed promo for “Good Life”.
How about his “give a black man a chance” backstage meltdown at the 2007 VMAs?
They say any publicity is good publicity, especially for a clown like Kanye, but when the first African-American president gets caught calling you a jackass off the record, you know you’re screwed.
Anyway, this was all supposed to tie in with Kid Cudi’s “Make Her Say” since it features Kanye and parodies Lady Gaga. Without further ado, here’s another Gotta Dance Dirty™ exclusive from the one and only Sammy Bananas.
