KANYE - 1
KANYE OUTSIDE VMA’S @ ENTRANCE. Henny In Hand But Mostly Full…

By Jonathon Brown

By now everyone’s dropped a “did you hear about Kanye at the VMA’s,” here or there. Everyone’s telling each other about how Kanye went off the deep end and couldn’t swim. If you just woke up, he basically interrupted Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech and decreed Beyonce’s video was unquestionably his pick for the award. And let me just say, it was just in time too. I’ll tell ya, as soon as the winner was announced I immediately wanted to hear Kanye’s take. It was perfect timing if you ask me. He shouldn’t have even handed the mic to her in the first place. It was his time to shine, his time to be a cultural commentator instead of the what the culture commented on. So I feel satisfied and fufilled with my VMA experience now that I witnessed such an exhibition of liberty and free speech. Furthermore, I was elated to see Lil’ Mama take on the same energy in her injection into Jay-z’ performance. I mean overall, Kanye changed the face of the awards show and did it with style, did it with influence, did it with ……….a bottle of HENNY!

ENOUGH with that crap. There is absolutely no side to Kanye’s episode that you could convince me is admirable, cool, artistic or common place. But that’s a one sided conversation. So instead, I came across a series of pictures that symbolize exactly what I mean by THE FINE PRINT.

What you’ll find when you take a closer look at these pictures is Kanye at three different junctures of the evening with a magically diminishing supply of Hennesy. Blame it on the…

  1. I completely disagree with you Mr. Brown. Maybe you are writing on a hip hop/ cultural bias level. I mean, you live/ love hip hop ( and yes it lives up North) and thus you don’t agree with the choice of a young Country artist winning. But she did so get over it. “He shouldn’t have even handed the mic to her in the first place.” – That is just mean and cold Jono. Are you kidding me. He shouldn’t have been on stage taking the mic away from some one who was awarded.
    I use to like Kanye I even saw him in concert when he came to T.O but then I saw him as whats wrong with hip-hop. He’s arrogant, thinks to highly of himself and dare I say commercialized. Once in awhile he will throw down a good line here and there but I don’t find him consistent. And I don’t need his wealth and stupid Louis vuitton don knapsack shoved in my face constantly. One brand leaching onto another brand.
    “It was his time to shine, his time to be a cultural commentator instead of the what the culture commented on”
    His apologies were never sincere. “I’m sorry for keeping it real”, “I feel like Ben Stealer”. Keeping it real too who? To himself? I’m sorry but Kanye doesn’t represent pop culture. It’s a very high title but no one person/ artist /genre does. What he did was very petty and unprofessional. Respect other people art and work even if you may not agree with it. There is a time and a place to voice your opinion stealing it and making some one feel like they didn’t disserve to win was cruel and hurtful. Totally inappropriate for a grown ass man to do that to a little girl on such a public level.
    If you like Taylor or not you have to give it to her she sold more albums in the last year than any other artist. Maybe it isn’t your kind of music but 2.5 million other people pay good money for her CD and thought she disserved to win. She’s also 19 what she has accomplished is amazing, give credit where it is due and give her the moment she disserved to have. Kanye should have gone back to his Blog and voiced his opinions there.
    I blame it on Kanye, as Oboma said total “ Jack ass.” Even the Prez called ya out!
