Kermit the Frog & the King of Pop

Posted by Raychel Celeste

I typically don't watch award shows. I don't watch the Oscars or anything. But I'm glad I watched MTV's Video Music Awards. It was eventful, to say the very least. If you missed it, I strongly suggest you check out the VMA page or just look at your twitter feed from about 9pm to midnight! Radio City came alive with some talent and a whole lot of awkwardness, from people like Lady Gaga, who arrived with Kermit the Frog as her date. The audience was shocked by Gaga's faux "hanging" and her numerous, crazy wardrobe changes. In true showbiz fashion, the award show continued with a Cirque de Soliel type performance from Pink, and an outrageous act from Kanye West. Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for Best Female Video was interrupted when Kanye rushed the stage, took Taylor's microphone and ranted that Beyonce was the rightful winner of the award. For the rest of the award show, the audience booed Kanye. There was a moment of real class, when Taylor Swift was invited onstage to finish her acceptance speech by Beyonce, who had just won Video of the Year. Other highlights of the VMAs included the unveiling of the 'New Moon' trailer, and a chilling tribute performance to the late King of Pop. Check out all the winners, pictures and highlights at the 2009 MTV Video Music Award website.

Update: Not long after being kicked out of the VMAs, Kanye posted a condescending apology to Taylor Swift. You can take a look at it here. I have a feeling this isn't the last we'll be hearing about the incident. I just hope people will focus less on what a d-bag Kanye is, and focus more on the classy manner in which both Beyonce and Taylor Swift handled the situation.

He must have felt like a D-Bag for ruining Taylor Swift's moment when Beyonce got her time to shine with Video of the Year. At least I hope he did.

I think Kanye is getting it from every angle. He isn't living this screw up down anytime soon.

What an imbecile. Did I spell imbecile correctly? :)
