Respect versus stupidity

I'm rather disgusted with Kayne West's behavior at the VMA's last night. I didn't watch the award show, but while checking facebook, I saw all the people commenting on him. So I went to youtube and found what they were talking about. If you have not seen or heard what Kayne did and said while Taylor Swift was accepting her award, you can easily find it all over the internet.

The incident: Taylor Swift won the Female Video of the Year award, beating out Beyonce. Halfway through her acceptance speech, Kayne walks up to the stage and take the microphone out of Taylor's hand. "I am really happy for you," West said. "But Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time." Then he hands the microphone back to Taylor and walks off the stage.

What?!?*%&^(#$*~#?! Who acts that way? Oh, yeah...Kayne West does, all the time. We have come to expect him to react when he is not the winner or doesn't like the outcome. I'm sure there were many people who thought other videos should have won, but they didn't storm the stage and take away a new artist's thunder! Grow up!

And to Beyonce, thank you for showing us you are a mature, grown up woman. You allowed Taylor to enjoy her moment when you won the Video of the Year award. Thank you for being the better and respectful person. Kayne's actions just show how immature and selfish and disrespectful he is.
